McGregor Blames ONE For Death Of UFC Flyweights

In less than a month, the UFC has effectively closed up shop on the flyweight division, and Conor McGregor has publicly come out and levied the blame not on his employers, but ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong.

Earlier this month, the Singapore based organization would trade for Demetrious Johnson, the division’s first and up until earlier this year, only, flyweight champion. McGregor has blasted Sityodtong for taking Johnson and leaving the rest of the flyweights behind.

In an unlikely response, Bellator featherweight champion Patricio Freire would blast McGregor for toeing the company line, and would blame the UFC for killing their own division.

 

 

The division’s first major cuts began on Wednesday as Jose Torres and Jarred Brooks would announce their release from the organization, and per reports from MMAJunkie that more should be coming soon.
