Bellator’s Past Stance On Men’s Flyweight Division
Bellator’s current stance on the men’s flyweight division is quite different than years past. Back in 2019, Bellator President Scott Coker told reporters that a men’s 125-pound weight class simply wasn’t in the cards (h/t MMAJunkie).
“We’ve talked about it, but we haven’t taken any action obviously,” Coker said. “For right now, we’re going to focus on the divisions we have. We’re very excited about the finals of the welterweight tournament and we’re very excited about the launch of the featherweight tournament. We’re going to have our hands full with these events.
“We’re going to have our hands full,” Coker said. “If at some point, we felt like it was something we wanted to do, we’d really think it through. I don’t want to be jumping in and out of different weight classes. If we’re going to do it, we’re going to do it right.”
It looks like now is the time to “do it right.”
