UFC on FX 2 video: Introducing the flyweight division

By now you've probably heard that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will debut a brand spankin' new weight class at tomorrow night's (Fri., March 3, 2012) UFC on FX 2: "Alves vs. Kampmann" event taking place at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.

Indeed, the flyweight division will finally have its place amongst the big dogs in the world's largest fight promotion. To kick things off the right way, the powers that be put together a four-man tournament to crown the first ever 125-pound champion in the UFC.

Above is a nifty little video to introduce them, though you'll see a familiar face or two. Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez are both former bantamweight title contenders while their opponents, Ian McCall and Yasuhiro Urushitani, have just been called up to the famed Octagon.

Get to know 'em, Maniacs, they're likely all here to stay.
