UFC Fighters Divisions

Men's Fighters Division

Heavyweights (265 lbs.)

As the first weight division established in the modern UFC, heavyweight has a rich and storied history. From Randy Couture to Brock Lesnar to Francis Ngannou, the UFC’s biggest stars tend to reside in this division. Knockouts are the most common in this division and fighters here also tend to be older. Even “old” veterans can have sustained success here.

Fighters

Francis Ngannou

Ciryl Gane

Stipe Miocic

Tai Tuivasa

Curtis Blaydes

Derrick Lewis

Tom Aspinall

Alexander Volkov

Jairzinho Rozenstruik

Chris Daukaus

Marcin Tybura

Sergei Pavlovich

Shamil Abdurakhimov

Augusto Sakai

Walt Harris

Blagoy Ivanov

Light Heavyweights (205 lbs.)

The light heavyweight division was once synonymous with Tito Ortiz, one of the UFC’s biggest stars. Then came Jon Jones, who many proclaim as the greatest MMA fighter of all time. But between the two, the division has been a revolving door for champions either showing its competitiveness or depth.

Sergei Pavlovich

Shamil Abdurakhimov

Augusto Sakai

Walt Harris

Blagoy Ivanov

Middleweights (185 lbs.)

The great Anderson Silva once ruled this division and his title reign may never be beaten. Israel Adesanya’s dominance is also notable as the division has largely been ruled by strikers. Like its heavier counterparts, knockouts are common occurrences here.

Fighters

Israel Adesanya

Robert Whittaker

Jared Cannonier

Marvin Vettori

Paulo Costa

Sean Strickland

Derek Brunson

Jack Hermansson

Darren Till

Uriah Hall

Kelvin Gastelum

Nassourdine Imavov

Brad Tavares

Andre Muniz

Chris Weidman

Edmen Shahbazyan

Welterweights (170 lbs.)

Whereas kickboxers historically ruled middleweight, welterweight has been dominated by wrestlers: from Matt Hughes to Georges St-Pierre to Kamaru Usman. The division has been known as arguably the best in the UFC and is a breeding ground for the best UFC fighters.

Fighters

Kamaru Usman

Colby Covington

Gilbert Burns

Leon Edwards

Vicente Luque

Belal Muhammad

Stephen Thompson

Jorge Masvidal

Sean Brady

Neil Magny

Michael Chiesa

Khamzat Chimaev

Geoff Neal

Li Jingliang

Santiago Ponzinibbio

Shavkat Rakhmonov

Lightweights (155 lbs.)

It took a while for the UFC to invest in the lightweight division and only because B.J. Penn proved to be a star in 2008. This may be the most competitive division in the UFC as evidenced by how champions’ title reigns don’t last for more than a few defense.

Fighters

Charles Oliveira

Justin Gaethje

Dustin Poirier

Islam Makhachev

Beneil Dariush

Michael Chandler

Rafael Dos Anjos

Tony Ferguson

Gregor Gillespie

Conor McGregor

Rafael Fiziev

Arman Tsarukyan

Mateusz Gamrot

Dan Hooker

Brad Riddell

Diego Ferreira

Featherweights (145 lbs.)

The UFC’s featherweight division started in the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), a promotion that focused on the smaller weight classes. After the UFC absorbed the WEC, the division has flourished and has birthed arguably the UFC’s biggest star in Conor McGregor.

Fighters

Alexander Volkanovski

Max Holloway

Brian Ortega

Yair Rodriguez

Chan Sung Jung

Calvin Kattar

Arnold Allen

Josh Emmett

Giga Chikadze

Bryce Mitchell

Dan Ige

Sodiq Yusuff

Edson Barboza

Movsar Evloev

Shane Burgos

Ilia Topuria

Bantamweights (135 lbs.)

Like the featherweight division, the bantamweight division came to the UFC via the WEC. This division had its share of stars in Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz and was the lightest men’s weight class in the promotion for nearly two years.

Fighters

Aljamain Sterling

Petr Yan

TJ Dillashaw

José Aldo

Cory Sandhagen

Rob Font

Merab Dvalishvili

Dominick Cruz

Marlon Vera

MPedro Munhoz

Song Yadong

Frankie Edgar

Ricky Simon

Sean O’Malley

Marlon Moraes

Raphael Assuncao

Flyweights (125 lbs.)

The flyweight division is both the lightest and youngest division in the UFC. The lack of finishes here is more than made up for by the high pace and activity of the fighters. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson set several records as the division’s first champion

Fighters

Deiveson Figueiredo

Brandon Moreno

Kai Kara France

Askar Askarov

Alexandre Pantoja

Alex Perez

Brandon Royval

Matheus Nicolau

Rogerio Bontorin

Matt Schnell

David Dvorak

Tim Elliott

Sumudaerji

Amir Albazi

Manel Kape

Tagir Ulanbekov

Women's Fighters Division​

Women’s Featherweights (145 lbs.)

The UFC’s second-youngest division is also its shallowest. The promotion does not even have an official rankings given how few the fighters competing in it are. Cristian “Cyborg” Santos and Amanda Nunes have been the two most notable fighters here.

Fighters

Francis Ngannou

Ciryl Gane

Stipe Miocic

Tai Tuivasa

Curtis Blaydes

Derrick Lewis

Tom Aspinall

Alexander Volkov

Jairzinho Rozenstruik

Chris Daukaus

Marcin Tybura

Sergei Pavlovich

Shamil Abdurakhimov

Augusto Sakai

Walt Harris

Blagoy Ivanov

Women’s Bantamweights (135 lbs.)

The first female division in the UFC was women’s bantamweight and it was one the UFC created for Ronda Rousey. The first-ever UFC women’s champion had a brief but memorable title reign. But outside dominant champions like her, the division craves for more talent.

Fighters

Francis Ngannou

Stipe Miocic

Shamil Abdurakhimov

Augusto Sakai

Walt Harris

Blagoy Ivanov

Women’s Flyweights (125 lbs.)

The last division to be added to the UFC has belonged to Valentina Shevchenko. The long-reigning champion has been peerless and has made the division appear lackluster though it is still rapidly growing. Plenty of veterans here previously competed in the other divisions

Women’s Strawweights (115 lbs.)

The UFC’s most unpredictable division has been at 115 lbs., which has seen champions rotate. Carla Esparza and Rose Namajunas have had multiple title reigns each while Joanna Jedrzejczyk set several records in her time as champ.

TIPS FOR BETTING ON A FIGHTER

Before placing bets on UFC fighters, there are a few things to consider. The first would be to look at their betting odds and recent performances. Some fighters are overestimated while some have seen continued success as underdogs. 

Other things to consider are their physical and mental state – did they have a good training camp? Weight cut? Styles, as they say, also make fights. While the UFC is for MMA, not all fighters are good at everywhere. Analyze what styles fighters excel against and which ones can be used to fade them on the sportsbook.
