Uncle Creepy vs. Mighty Mouse is a fight I've wanted to see; awesome matchmaking.

I like this A LOT.

I honestly thought instead of Urushitani it would be Dodson but I'm very happy with this. This is going to be fuckin awesome. I've got Mighty Mouse and Benavidez meeting in the finals like it should be. If it works out that way it'll be a badass match up for the first belt.

I wasn't sure of the flyweight division at first, but with these match-ups I can't help but be excited! WAR BENAVIDEZ!

I bet they're about to clean out Tachi Palace Fights. There are several guys that would fit very nicely into the ufc. Ulysses Gomez, Darrell Montague, Dustin Ortiz, Jussier da Silva and Mamoru Yamaguchi is a goldmine.

I could see the title being a co main event on pay per view somewhere in the summer

It scares me that a grown man can weigh 125 pounds.

Wonder who else is going to drop/be signed.

Mighty Mouse almost beat the champ at 135, so good shot at him being champ here.

Do feel like we are going to need some more fly's and bant's now.

Considering I weigh 100 pounds more than that, me too.

Very excited that Urushitani is in the big leagues. However I see Benavidez wearing that strap.

john dodson, joe benavidez, mike easton, ian mccall and dimitrius johnson each have a really good shot at being the champ. maybe they should just do a grand prix

Yeah I'm stoked on this! Makes my post a couple days ago in the thread "UFC to announce new 125-pound flyweight class this weekend" look kind of good

Ufc needs to sign uncle creepy vs benevides for title



Ian McCall fought in the WEC at 135, so of all the TPF Flyweights, I don't doubt he come over. I forgot of he is still the Flyweight champ....

The particular match you postulated makes me think though. I feel a tournament to determine the new Flyweight champ would be one of the most spectacular things the UFC could do. If they HAD to do one match, I think Joe B vs Mighty Mouse would make the most sense. But again.... I feel a tourny is the best way to crown the first champ of the new division.

Yasuhiro has to have the most draws in MMA with 6. ive never seen 6 before.

I looked at his profile because he was the only one i did not know. when i saw he was 35 years old i had a bad feeling but then i thought at 5'5" how old can you really be.

Satoru Kitaoka has 9 draws but I think even that has been topped
