UFC announces a fourth women's division

UFC announce TUF 26 will launch new flyweight division for women

The victor of this season will become the UFC's first women's flyweight champion.

Just like they did with the strawweight title, the first-ever UFC female flyweight champion will emerge through The Ultimate Fighter.

Vicente Campos was also just activated and immediately sent to Triple A Salt Lake after having rehabbed at High Single-A. So when it was reliever Jason Grilli's turn to bat, being in a National League park in came Stroman to pinch hit.

Now the UFC has three female weight divisions, bantamweight (135 pounds), strawweight (115 pounds), and featherweight (145 pounds). With this new fourth Flyweight division, 125lb fighters will be able to compete at a much healthier and more equitable weight. The promotion announced today that "The Ultimate Fighter 26" will culminate with the crowning of the inaugural UFC women's flyweight champion. The popularity of women's mixed martial arts grew swiftly with the rise of former 135-pound bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, prompting the UFC to expand its roster dramatically.

The UFC added a 115-pound strawweight division in 2014 and a 145-pound bantamweight division this year. "The season will also be open to females on the current UFC roster that can successfully make 125-pounds throughout the duration of the season".

Bulls beat top-seeded Celtics to take 2-0 series lead
Ibaka made a jumper to put Toronto up three but Antetokounmpo answered with a 3-pointer, tying it at 100-all with 2:03 left. The 22-year-old still finished with a team-high 24 points and 15 rebounds, but the shooting was too inconsistent.

The UFC sent out a press release on Wednesday stating an open casting call will take place in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 23.

Last June, the UFC staged its first stand-alone flyweight fight last June, when Joanne Calderwood beat Valerie Letourneau by third-round stoppage. Although the weight classes it will feature remains unclear, "TUF 26" is scheduled to begin filming in July and will debut on Fox Sports 1 later this year.
