OKTAGON MMA no longer has a flyweight champion as title holder Elias Garcia was stripped of the title. That’s according to a statement from OKTAGON’s Ondrej Novotny.

“Oktagon’s flyweight division no longer has a champion. Garcia has turned down our offer twice to fight, and as a result has been stripped of his title. We now have a very interesting replacement for Aaron Aby, and you can look forward to a great title fight very soon,” the statement read.
