Dana White to Unveil UFC’s Flyweight Division This Weekend in Toronto, Ont

UFC President, Dana White has confirmed that the long awaited announcement of the UFC’s flyweight division will come this weekend when the promotion visits Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the second time for UFC 140.

White, speaking at yesterday’s press conference in Chicago, said:

“It’s happening. I told you guys it’s happening, and it’s happening.”

“This weekend. I should have something by this weekend. If anything proved how awesome the small guys are it was this season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ How about the finale? The finale was incredible. Diego’s (fight) was probably the best one-round fight I’ve ever seen, and Dodson was just incredible.”

“I’m not moving anybody down. Those guys can make the decisions themselves, what weight division they want to fight in. But 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.”
