Quote of the Day: The WEC Won't Be Adding a Flyweight Division Anytime Soon

Promoted from the FanPosts by Kid Nate.

WEC matchmaker, Sean Shelby talked to Sherdog.com and said that plans for adding a 125-lb division are on hold:

When I first came in earlier this year, my goal was to build up the divisions we already had. We have built quality depth into 135 and 145, and I am working on 155 now. With the number of fights we are doing now, 125 is just not a viable division for us at this moment.

Every fight we would be doing at 125 would take a spot from our already established divisions. We have worked hard to create the depth we have, and I just don’t want to sacrifice that. We will do the flyweights, but it has to be the right time.

When we feel we can support the division the way it needs to be supported, then we will bring in the best flyweights in the world. We will be doing more shows next year, and, as [WEC General Manager] Reed [Harris] stated, we will be doing pay-per-view as well, so hopefully we will see the 125ers sometime in 2010.
