After announcing Featherweight last week, the committee had the tough task of narrowing the nominees. With talent stacked in each, it took some careful consideration.
This was especially tough in the flyweight and strawweight division, so the committee decided to extend this years nominees from six this year to seven and eight respectfully.
The winners of each division will be up for Fighter of the Year. Winners will be announced next week.
