The UFC now has women's divisions at 145 pounds, 135 pounds and 115 pounds.
The UFC is creating a new 125-pound "flyweight" weight class for women-the fourth weight class for women in the mixed martial arts league.
The UFC announced plans for a 12th weight class Wednesday afternoon, bringing in a women's 125-pound division.
According to the release, fighters now signed to the UFC roster (like her) can also apply for TUF 26 if they're able to make the flyweight limit, so long as they meet the age requirement (21-34) and have a winning record. However, according to UFC President Dana White, that announcement by the UFC was premature.

He managed a 20 Wonderlic score and has a reputation as a one-read quarterback who doesn't play comfortably from the pocket. DeShaun Watson quote [on picking Trubisky over him]: "You're gonna have to live with the consequences that come with it.
Similar to what they did with women's strawweight in 2014, a season-long tournament on The Ultimate Fighter will be the proving ground for the company's newest division. The 145-pound featherweight class debuted earlier this year when Germaine de Randamie defeated Holly Holm for the inaugural title, but the promotion has yet to fill the division with new fighters aside from de Randamie and potential challenger Cris Cyborg Justino.
White told Iole that the news release was sent in error and was not finalized.
Just to clarify, the announcement that was posted on the UFC's official website, which provided specifics such as date, time and location for female flyweights to tryout for the reality show, was erroneous?
Bellator MMA also intends to crown its first female flyweight champion later this year.
