    The UFC created this division with the Asian market in mind but fans seem to have tuned out the littlest fighters despite Johnson's historic run as champ. They've now sold their star to an Asian promotion (DJ to OneFC) and are looking to close the division per reports. No idea what this means for Cejudo if he loses to Dillashaw--flyweights who won't move up will have to leave.

    Dillashaw says the goal of having him fight DJ at 125 was to bust up the division.
