WEC Adding A Flyweight Division

New, 6 comments


The WEC is planning on expanding by adding a 125 pound flyweight division. A move that undoubtedly will serve a couple of purposes.

1. A new division will help the WEC further legitimize its claim as the preeminent promotion for lightweight fighters.

2. With the debunking of the WEC MW and LHW divisions, a new flyweight division will help in filling up future cards that the WEC plans to put on.

I'm pretty happy to see this happen. I don't keep up with many of the fighters that fight below 145, simply because most of them fight in foreign countries. However, one thing is for sure in that the majority of these flyweight fights will be very fast paced and entertaining.
