Quietly, an 11th division has been added to the UFC. Or has it?

What’s being called a “special attraction” flyweight bout, the first of its kind in the UFC, will take place in Ottawa when Joanne Calderwood (10-1) and Valerie Letourneau (8-4) do battle on June 18th. According to the UFC, it’s not yet known if the women’s flyweight division will become a fixture; as of right now there will be no rankings set up for the 125 lbs weight class.

UFC Fight Night 89 currently boasts a huge main event between top welterweight contenders Rory MacDonald (18-3) and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (12-1). This will be the first event the UFC has held in Ottawa.
