A unique selling point of Tachi Palace Fights in recent years has been its flyweight division.

The California-based promotion has recruited talent aggressively and built a roster that includes several of the world's top-ranked 125-pound fighters.

With recent news that the UFC is soon to add the sport's lightest class to its roster, you'd think Tachi would be bracing itself for a exodus of talent, and naturally not be too happy about it.

It was a good article. I think the UFC should do it as soon as possible. I think it would be good for them to get some new talent and offer another division to the best promotion in the world. I agree with what was said, the UFC won't take guys, because Tachi Palace is pretty much a minor league that will ready fighters for the UFC. Look forward to seeing more on this in the future.

I used to charge 5 cents for those rides! Man inflation has really hurt the mustache industry, but more to the point I think it will hurt Tachi a little but these days the talent pool (especially in the lighter weight classes) is growing so fast I don't think it will be a huge issue replacing guys that go to the UFC.
