The video tells the true story here. I also know my enthusiasm for this fight may be cast as promotional shilling, so I'll save the exposition on the flyweight division for another time.
But I will admit that the fleshing out of the flyweight division is exciting. That it's happening in North America and more specifically the east coast is downright thrilling. When we add gravity to the bout by placing a championship on the line between two top 15, accomplished competitors (both American, which itself if notable) with some of the highest MMA camp pedigree available, the appeal becomes difficult to ignore.
