Current Flyweight Rankings

While it might be "business as usual" on the Zuffa side of things, the world's leading MMA brand has yet to bring the flyweight division to the Octagon. Until then, we're left scrambling to second-tier promotions for flyweight action (not that it's a problem). As it stands, the bulk of flyweight stock remains a Japanese commodity. However, Tachi Palace Fights appears to be establishing a strong stable of flyweights in fighters like Ian McCall and Jussier da Silva.

As ordered, the current 125 lb. rankings according to Fightmatrix.com:

1 Yasuhiro Urushitani
