Current UFC Champions

There are plenty of MMA organizations doing business today- One FC, World Series of Fighting, and Bellator are some of them- but the UFC is still king of the hill by a long shot. In accordance with this, the current UFC champions are oftentimes considered the champions of their entire weight class in the sport, even if this may not be entirely true.

Perception is everything folks, isn't it? Regardless, here is a list of the current UFC champions for your perusal.

UFC 203: Miocic v Overeem

Fabricio Werdum was awesome at UFC 188, somehow managing to demonstrate more gas in the tank than a man who regularly breaks people in Cain Velasquez.  Said another way, he outlasted the former champion, and the guillotine he sunk in was spectacular! More »

With Jon Jones' pending legal troubles mostly out of the way, we are about to see who the real champion is.  For now it's Daniel Cormier, fresh off of impressive victories over Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson.  But the rematch here should be spectacular. More »

UFC Middleweight Champion- Luke Rockhold (Over 170-185 lbs.)

Luke Rockhold said he could defeat the man who had beaten the greatest ever.  And that's exactly what he did to Chris Weidman.  He beat the New York native up both on his feet, and then to end things, on the ground en-route to a TKO victory.

UFC Welterweight Champion - Robbie Lawler (Over 155-170 lbs.)

When Robbie Lawler was able to avenge his loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC 182, he also took home the title.  He's been able to keep the strap with consecutive victories over Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit, even if the latter win was highly controversial.

UFC Lightweight Champion - Rafael Dos Anjos (Over 145-155 lbs.)

Rafael Dos Anjos absolutely dominated Pettis with power striking and takedowns en-route to taking the title at UFC 185.  He was about to get a shot at doing the same to Conor McGregor when a foot injury got in the way.  Too bad!

Conor McGregor hit home with a left hand that ended former champion Jose Aldo's night after only 13 seconds had gone by.  Unbelievable.  McGregor is now the champ.

TJ Dillashaw had looked great in defeating Renan Barao twice.  But when he got the shot to make his title truly undisputed against Dominick Cruz, a man who had never actually lost the bantamweight strap to anything other than injury, he fell short....barely. More »

Demetrious Johnson is the first and only flyweight champion in the organization's history. The bottom line is that he's defeated every valid contender on his way to becoming not only the first flyweight champion in UFC history, but also one whose streak of dominance will be hard to match. More »

Let's face it, Ronda Rousey has been the face of Women's MMA for a very, very long time.  The person most thought had a shot at taking her belt was Cris Justino.  But then Holly Holm entered the conversation.  And oh boy did she ever make people realize her worth with a dominant victory over Rousey to wrest the title away.

UFC Women's Strawweight Champion - Joanna Jedrzejczyk (Over 115-125)

We're talking about a striking machine here that former champion Carla Esparza literally seemed to have no chance against.
