Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto is Confident - exited to fight at UFC 126
The Bantamweight division hasn't been seeing too much significant action in a few months. This will change when #1 Dominick Cruz defends his WEC belt against #3 Joseph Benavidez on August 18.
#1 Dominick Cruz sits atop the bantamweight rankings as he awaits a rematch with #3 Joseph Benavidez at WEC 50.
The Alliance Gym's bantamweight king, broken hand and all, still sits atop the division. At WEC 47, the Alliance Gym bantamweight #1 Dominick Cruz easily out kickboxed #2 Brian Bowles at WEC 47 last month.
Last month I promised a lot of shakeup in April and nothing could be truer. #1 Jose Aldo defended his title against #3 Urijah Faber in a dominant performance at WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber. While there was some fan disappointment at Aldo's inability to finish The California Kid, there is no doubt who the top dog is in the division.
