Only the UFC women's bantamweight class has fewer signees than the male flyweights, but reigning champion Demetrious Johnson is perfectly content in his current weight class.
"I've got a lot of work to do at flyweight," Johnson said earlier this month during a Q&A session with UFC fans.
Johnson (16-2-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC), who attempts his first title defense next month at UFC on FOX 6 opposite John Dodson (14-5 MMA, 3-0 UFC), began his big-show career at bantamweight in the now-defunct WEC. After an initial setback, he went on a win streak and won a title shot against champ Dominick Cruz in October 2011. However, a five-round fight saw Cruz defend the belt via decision.LINK
