The 125-pound weight class isn’t going anywhere, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely safe. It’s the smallest men’s division in the UFC, in terms of size and viewership numbers. There just aren’t many fans who are into watching “little guys” as there are who want to see big men bang. It’s a shame, because this is where the fastest-paced fights take place.

Let’s take a look at the current division. Remember, you can bet on your favorite fighters at BookMaker.eu.
Weight Limit: 125 pounds
Average Height: 65.3” (5’3.3”)
Average Reach: 66.2” (5’5.2”)
It’s hard to drum up interest in the flyweight division when the champion is so much better than everyone else - and nobody seems to care. But that could change if Demetrious Johnson steps up to face T.J. Dillashaw. Despite his lack of fan base, people will tune in to watch anybody take a real shot at greatness. Everybody else behind DJ is just jockeying for position anyway.
No. 2 Henry Cejudo meets No. 4 Sergio Pettis in a high stakes matchup at UFC 218. Pettis is one of the only flyweights who hasn’t faced Johnson yet, which greatly helps his chances at a title shot. Still, getting past the rapidly improving Cejudo is no easy task. Expect the UFC odds at BookMaker.eu to open with Pettis as a clear underdog.
UFC Flyweight Fighter to Watch
Ray Borg is just 24 years old and has a title fight under his belt. While he never really threatened Johnson in their matchup, he did a lot better than people expected. “The Tazmexican Devil” should be a fixture in the top-5 for years to come.
UFC Flyweight Champion: Demetrious Johnson
1. Joe Benavidez
2. Henry Cejudo
3. Ray Borg
4. Sergio Pettis
5. Wilson Reis

8. Ben Nguyen
9. Tim Elliott
10. John Moraga

Having a dominant champion both hurts and helps the UFC. Dethroning somebody that seems unbeatable is a compelling storyline, but Johnson is not a fighter who cares much for promoting himself. And even now, he’s hardly a star. In fact, nobody in this division moves the needle much in terms of viewership. Let’s hope some brash young fighter pops out of nowhere and gives this division a shot in the arm.
