2020 was a huge year for the newly reinvented flyweight division in the UFC.

Arguably, Comeback of the Year for 2020 could very well have been handed to the 125lb weight class as a whole. Deiveson Figueiredo emerged as a bonafide star, and by the end of the year, he and Brandon Moreno had put on what many consider to be the greatest flyweight title fight of all time.

That bodes well for the division’s future as we set off into 2021. But who should the UFC bring in? With the weight class red-hot, now is the perfect time to really commit to the flyweights and bolster the roster.

Here’s a look at last year’s list, featuring current UFC roster members Aleksander Doskalchuk, Brandon Royval, David Dvorak, Malcolm Gordon, and Tagir Ulanbekov.
