Current UFC® Champions in each weight class

Posted by Victoria Barnett on Apr 24, 2017 11:09:57 AM

The list of UFC champions is forever changing. We've seen the championship belt change hands constantly in some weight classes, while in others we've had the same champion for quite some time. But if there is one thing we've seen over the years in the UFC, it's that anything is possible in the MMA world due to the insane amount of talent. The tremendous champion potential in so many fighters is what makes the sport so great. 

With that being said, we've laid out the current champions in each of the weight classes! Keep in mind, we will update the list as time goes on.
