    So why is he begging Chatri? He should be making a public demand to the UFC and Dana.

    Not sure you grasp how that works.

    if One FC avtually comes out and says we are going to sign most flyweights that get cut, they would make a statement and get a lot of free publicity.

    McGregor is a huge fan of Demetrious Johnson and feels OneFC destroyed Flyweight by signing him. Odd since it looked like UFC was thrashing the division regardless.

    I think he is just trying to help those Flyweights get jobs since UFC won't keep them.

    Well i think he is wrong in saying that signing DJ killed off the division since that is ultimately the UFC's decision, but I think it's great that he's campaigning for 125'ers to get new jobs.

    Am I understanding this correctly? Conor is blaming ONE FC for the UFC's decision to get rid of the 125lb division?

    LOL!

    If Conor was really giving a voice to the voiceless, he should have said it to the UFC brass. They're the one who are allegedly cutting the 125lb division.

    Neither is America's fight market put off by smaller fighters. A lot of our favorite boxers are 5'3" midgets.

    If One puts their 125ers in the cage, the division will tank. Problem: Cage is 6' tall and 5' dudes look like midget carnival freakshows next to it.

    Solution: Ring ropes are 4'6" tall. 5'3" guys look like normal people next to it. Just like in boxing, they don't look like midget carnival freakshows when they're in the ring.

    name 3 "5'3 midgets" that are big in America right now. The only person that made it big in America whilst being 5'3 was Naseem Hamed.... and he retired years ago.

    The American market is clearly put off by smaller fighters.

    Off the top of my head, the only 5'3" or shorter men I can name are Mighty Mouse and Danny DeVito.

    The shortest president of all time is 5'4" James Madison.

    We've had a black president though. So, apparently being 5'3" gets you worse discrimination than being black. Why are there no 5'3" rights groups?

    Edit: Obama was half black. So, maybe that's like being half 5'3". Like 5'8" or something. Ulysses S Grant was 5'8 and a drunk. Just like me.
