Zuffa, LLC. announced today that they will formally be getting rid of their welterweight division and adding the 125-lbs. flyweight division to their mix.
The rumored welterweight move follows Carlos Condit’s promotion to the UFC where he will be welcomed by former middleweight contender Martin Kampmann at Ultimate Fight Night 18.
Brock Larson will also be returning to the Octagon with the demise of the WEC’s welterweight division.
The WEC will now only feature fights from the flyweight, bantamweight, featherweight and lightweight divisions.
