    And De La Rosa vs Sanchez is at bantamweight, I guess, because he just hit the scales at 136.

    If TJ wins then he can just keep the belt and Dana scraps the division.....move up to 135Ib or piss off to One Championship.......

    how exactly would unionisation have helped in this situation?

    they cannot force the UFC to keep the division

    Anyone knows the status of MMA fighters union? Seems like after GSP and TJ got their respective title shots it all went quiet. Or are they actively working on some sneak attack on Dana and his goons?

    I think Kajan Johnson said only a couple of fighters signed up after Leslie Smith was released or not re-signed.

    SIR

    The UFC has not confirmed it yet, but several fighters have already indicated that they have been dismissed by the organization in connection with the lifting of the Flyweight division. Yesterday, the UFC removed Mexican Brandon Moreno and the Brazilian Matheus Nicolau from the rankings. Both fighters indicated that they have not heard anything from the UFC. Remarkably, the UFC has now ranked Irishman Neil Seery as number fifteen.

    The 39 year old Seery fought for the last time in July 2017 and last won a fight in 2015. In Glasgow, the Irishman lost to Alexandre Pantoja. Seery then announced his retirement from the Pro-MMA. This makes the Irishman the first fightersever in the rankings that have been out of action for more than a year.

    Surprised the UFC didn't give Moreno and Nicolau a shot at BW.

    Word is, they just re-signed Louis Smolka, but he'll be moving up to BW.

    Deiveson Figueiredo (15-0)
    Naoki Inoue (11-1)
    Henry Cejudo (13-2)
    Jussier Formiga (22-5)

    Formiga's only losses are to Uncle Creepy, Dodson, Joe B, Ray Borg and Cejudo

    Sergio Pettis, Ben Nguyen, Tim Elliot, Ray Borg and Joe B are good fighters as well. This division was just about to get interesting with DJ gone
