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.

I like Mighty Mouse and I like what he's saying...but he has to worry about Barao, not Cruz

he's got the right idea. dodson is dangerous and mighty mouse has no reason to look back at the 135lb class. i cant wait for his next fight, dodson probably has some of the best TDD in the game. i have never seen him get taken down or even really that close. DJ has crazy fast wrestling and great footwork but i think its gonna be a standup battle.

I don't see any superfights with Johnson honestly. I mean he would never beat Cruz at 135.

After Dobson their is a drop off of challengers

Moraga vs cariasco could be a big contender fight

Or at least winner faces Darren or Louis next for title shot

Ufc should de signing more flyweights
I am starting to warm up to the division
Looking forward to joe b vs uncle creepy at 156 already

Exactly. Both fighters have to be famous to have a superfight.
