Dana White reveals a strawweight division (115 pounds) is on it’s way to the octagon

January 30, 2013 All MMA News, UFC

UFC President, Dana White has today revealed that the Las Vegas based promotion will be launching a strawweight division of 115 pounds, although no timeline for it’s launch has been mentioned at this point in time.

Speaking via UFC Tonight, Dana said:

“As the sport continues to grow and we go into these other markets like Latin America, Asia, yes, we will eventually open up a lighter weight division. Which is a great thing. It’s an amazing opportunity for fighters all over the world. I don’t know how soon it’s going to happen, but yes it will eventually happen.”

Although the idea behind this is a solid one and there’s no doubt there is a clutch of talented fighters under the current 125 pound flyweight minimum, it’s hard to see how the fans will connect with even smaller fighters after struggling to connect with the smaller fighters that have taken to the octagon of late. Stay tuned to MMABay for more news on this one as we get it.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
