I hope they add 105, 95 and 85 pound divisions as well
All would have to cut 20 pounds to fight in this weight class.... Hell Taylor Swift would have to cut 15 pounds to fight in this weight class.... just saying
nobody even cares about the flyweights.. what makes even smaller guys exciting? Say you put the 115 lb'er in with say some 180 lb guy that works in a office, that would be way more entertaining.
Ian McCall, Brian Bowles, Chan Sung Jung, Nate Diaz, Nick Diaz, Dan Hardy, Duane Ludwig, Mike Pierce, Rick Story, Jake Ellenberger, Wanderlei Silva, Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen, Rich Franklin, Dan Henderson, Rashad Evans, Phil Davis, Shane Carwin, Gabriel Gonzaga
115lbs weight class No way sounds like a side show at the carnival.

Guys you will hardly see these fights if at all, I'm not sure what the big deal is.
I'm biased because I'm tiny myself (not that small), but the little guys should get their shot. There are many places in the world where 5'2 is considered average height, why shouldn't those fighters have a chance? You'll probably have to search the internet just to watch these fights so I'm really not sure why you care.
It bothers me because for years Dana White said now to a 195 or cruiserweight division because it would make the surrounding divisions too thin and water down the talent. Well they have no problem with those issues at the smaller weight classes.
They only reason they are doing it now is so they can market more championship fights which they are obligated to so many per their contract with Fox.
I don't agree with the UFC adding the Strawweight division but it makes sense from a marketing standpoint. I doubt we'll see that division featured anytime soon; it's definitely attractive to certain markets which I'm sure is why it's announced before the weight class is rounded out.

Give me a 195 and a 225 Dana..people pay for knockouts...not 115 lbers fighting. There's nothing intimidating about that and it will kill your sport.
