Dana White recently spoke about his comment a couple weeks ago about a 115 pound division coming to UFC down the road and more. Check out the highlights:
On the division becoming a likelihood: "It'll happen. I don't know (how soon). (But) we're going into Asia, Mexico, going into South America – and traditionally, they're all smaller guys."
On the international expansion helping find lighter talent: "Our first event in China is going to be in November, and you know how it happens after we put on an event – it explodes and people start training. India, too. You're going to see talent in those lighter-weight divisions."
On the current flyweight division: "I have a feeling that 125-pound division is going to be as nasty as (155) and (170). There's going to be a lot of talent there. At 125 pounds, I think you're going to see a lot of Hispanic and Asian fighters now coming to come compete at that weight."
