05:04 PM ET 09.21 | Saturday's inaugural Flyweight title fight is flying way under the radar, but Demetrious Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez may be the most important -- and exciting -- UFC 152 match-up. Over the last year and change, the UFC has introduced two new weight classes, featherweight and bantamweight. The new additions have been ushered in with limited fanfare. But this flyweight title tournament has already given us a possible "Fight of the Year" contender in the first Ian McCall vs. Johnson fight. Their rematch was nearly as good. And on the other side of the bracket, Benavidez has looked utterly unstoppable. Expect fireworks from the UFC's lightest division Saturday night.

They don't have to hype this fight now, its not the main event. Most people tuning in tomorrow night are people who want to see a legal murder aka, Jones vs Belfort. Having said that, I see Benavidez taking this fight.
