    UFC Fighters Divisions

    As the largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion in the world, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) employs over 600 fighters across 11 divisions. From women’s strawweight (115 lbs.) up to men’s heavyweight (265 lbs.), you can find the best UFC fighters listed on this page. 

    Before you bet on UFC fighters, keep tabs on this page to get news on the latest UFC roster moves. There are new signings, releases, and fight announcements on a weekly basis. The sportsbook has several UFC fighters’ odds even when there is no event for the week.

    Men’s Fighters Division

    Heavyweights (265 lbs.)
    Light Heavyweights (205 lbs.)
    Middleweights (185 lbs.)
    Welterweights (170 lbs.)
    Lightweights (155 lbs.)
    Featherweights (145 lbs.)
    Bantamweights (135 lbs.)
    Flyweights (125 lbs.)
    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 ufc fighters here also tend to be older. Even “old” veterans can have sustained success here.

    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 UFC fighter of all time. But between the two, the division has been a revolving door for champions either showing its competitiveness or depth.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 UFC fighters. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson set several records as the division’s first champion

    Women’s Fighters Division

    Women’s Featherweights (145 lbs.)
    Women’s Bantamweights (135 lbs.)
    Women’s Flyweights (125 lbs.)
    Women’s Strawweights (115 lbs.)
    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.

    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.

    Women’s Flyweights (125 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.

    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 Before Betting on a UFC Fighter:

    Before placing bets on UFC fighters, there are a few things to consider. The first would be to look at their UFC 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.
