First Half Stats in the Womens’ Divisions Part 5: Flyweight Breakdown

Continuing with the weight classes is the quickest growing divisions – flyweight.

Note: Any fights that were above 116 for our purposes are considered flyweight. Any fights 121-124 were rounded up to 125. Any fights 117-119 were rounded up to 120 pounds.

There were 194 total fights at the 125 limit with ten at a 120 catchweight. The total number of flyweight fighters just beats strawweight’s amount by 4 fights.

There were 51 pro debuts with 54 amateur. This is slight more than the strawweights in both categories. A good percentage of amateurs do drop weight classes, so this is a good sign for the 115ers.

Following the trend of the lower weight classes, decisions (46) is the most popular way for a pro flyweight to win followed by submissions (29) and TKO/KOs (25). Amateurs saw 45 decisions,  25 submissions, and 20 TKOs/KOs.
