  1. Why is Macy Chiasson still fighting at Bantamweightt especially since she won TUF at Featherweight and looked so great doing so? I just don’t get it.

    1. Because she sees the writing on the wall. The UFC’s 145 division has sunk into irrelevance. The bigger question is why all those FW TUF alumni allowed to drop to 135 in the first place. I seriously doubt if the UFC ever planned to develop the 145 division from the get go.

      1. Sadly, I think you’re right ! 🙁 I feel horribly for Felicia Spencer and Megan Anderson. At this point, Dana needs to do the right thing, maybe even do a trade like he did with Mighty Mouse and Askren and let all the featherweights go to Bellator (other than Nunes), including the ones who dropped to 135 after TUF, other than Pannie. She was fighting at 135 in Invicta.

  2. And by fighting at Featherweight, Macy Chiasson and others attempting to be weight class bullies would keep the Women’s Featherweight division in the UFC being relevant and having great fights because they would be fighting more at their natural fighting weight class meaning more stamina and more reserves in the tank and more entertaining fights at Featherweight
