The UFC has announced that on March 3rd for their card on FX there will be a flyweight tournament. The fighters in the tournament are Tachi Palace fights flyweight champion Ian McCall, Demetrious Johnson, Joseph Benavidez, and Yasuhiro Urushitani. The matchups are Johnson vs. McCall and Benavidez vs. Urushitani. The winners will meet each other for the Flyweight title. This is big news for the lighter divisions that have provided excitement for years but without much fanfare. But thanks to the WEC and organisations like Tachi Palace, and Dream which showcased lighter divisions there will finally be a flyweight division.
