    Very excited to see this fight. The Flyweight division is thin, and let's be honest, not the most popular (but totally cool with me). They're gonna need to build around the bigger names and considering that we, the fans, get to see it, who gives a shit if it's premature or not.

    I've only seen McCall fight three times, and two of those fights were against the same guy (Mighty Mouse) so I still don't have a great feel for his attributes. That said, I'm still picking Benavidez, although McCall would be wise to borrow from Demetrius' gameplan, even if it wasn't the most engaging.

Mighty Mouse again?

    Great fight, but I feel this could of been held off for a future card.
    I think that you are correct. The UFC took the short term gain rather than look at the long term.

    Should be a helluva fight to watch and at this point, the division is so shallow that until more and more FWs cut down, this is one of the only big game fights they've got to make....

    I kind of agree with you to a certain degree, but what other hot young prospects are there in the division that they can be put up against? Besides John Dodson who is fighting Mighty Mouse. If this division was stacked like the lightweight division, then yes, I 100% agree but I think fighting a lesser name and losing is worse than these two fighting each other due to how shallow this division truly is. They probably will end up fighting the winner of Dodson and Mighty Mouse

    Very valid point, if I could rep you I would. Still I think it will be a great fight, though, maybe one that should be done in a year or so from now.

    With each fighter having only two fights in the newer division I dont think it hurts either of them too much if they lose because they lost to the top 3 in their division, they will still be ranked high, I think its more about attracting fans to the newer division.

    Why? Not like this division is completely stacked, each of these two throwing down are up there in rank and can put on one fuck of a show, good promotion for the division.
