The talks of a new 165 pound division in the UFC always seem to find a way to get to the media. Last year it was Diaz and Porier who almost ran a social media campaign demanding their expected fight at UFC 230 to be a title match for  a new 165 pound division. Though the match up never happened President Dana White was very adamant about not opening a new weight class.


This time it is veteran Donald Cerrone who has voiced his support for a new weight class. Cerrone is scheduled to fight Alexander Hernandez at UFC’s debut card on ESPN in the lightweight category.

This will be the “Cowboy’s” return to 145 pounds after spending his couple of years at welterweight. UFC on ESPN+ 1 takes place Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Dillashaw vs. Cejudo headlines the main card, which streams on ESPN+ following televised prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+.
