With the recent expansion in Asia, it could be a possibility that the UFC is scouting for talent for a new strawweight division. They already announced they were going to add the division at some point: UFC To Add Strawweight Division. There are lots of 115 pound fighters in Shooto in Japan and Muay Thai fighters in Thailan, so finding talent for the division wouldn't be too difficult. However, there is not a lot of information out there on strawweights. I have seen some strawweight rankings but they don't have a lot f research behind them.
My main question is, does anybody know of some good 115 pound fighters that most fight fans aren't aware of? It seems like there aren't any Americans that small, so i'm assuming they'd all come from Asia and maybe Latin America..
