UFC launches the women’s flyweight division with a new season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’
Tryouts for the show are on May 23rd.
Filming for the show starts in July, the winner becomes the flyweight champion.
This is this the UFC’s 12th weight class. 8 men’s and 4 women’s. In December 2010 there were just 5 divisions.
Less than one month ago Dana White said there’s no plans for the UFC to add a women’s flyweight division any time soon.
But 5 days after Bellator announced their new flyweight division, the UFC now has added theirs.
Valerie Letourneau left the UFC because they wanted her to fight at 135, she didn’t want to do that, and the cut to 115 was too hard on her.
5 days after her Bellator signing was announced, they announced this TUF 26 show.
Letourneau was involved in first women’s flyweight fight in the UFC, where she lost to Joanne Calderwood, but then the UFC just abandoned the division.
Bec Rawlings says: women’s 125 division 🙌🏻finally a division I belong in!!
UFC has confirmed the fight between Cowboy Cerrone and Robbie Lawler at UFC 213 on July 8th. Also a third fight between Fabricio Werdum

Nate Diaz is not interested in fighting Ferguson, he suggests Tony and Conor fight and he takes on the winner.
