In early 2009, World Extreme Cagefighting announced its intentions of adding a flyweight division. On a media conference call on Tuesday, WEC General Manager Reed Harris said to expect further announcements this year on the 125-pound weight class being incorporated into the organization.
“We’re working on it,” said Harris. “The thing that we focus on in WEC is making sure that all of our fights are meaningful and making sure our divisions are deep. Part of that is making sure your guys get fights. So right now we’re focusing on the divisions we have, getting those guys plenty of fights, keeping them busy.
“We’re working on the flyweight division and sometime, I’m sure, in 2010, we’ll announce that we’re going to be forming that and get that moving.” Link
