With the arrival of Petr Yan and Deiveson Figueiredo to the thrones of the Flyweight and Bantamweight ladder, the list of all eight UFC champions has been completed, which has not been the case since December last year, when Henry Cejudo left the flyweight division.
This list of champions brings several names who until a few years ago were not even members of the UFC, such as Yan, Figueiredo, and Israel Adesanya. The UFC currently has a range of champions most of whom have the potential to rule for some time to come. In fact, a look at their results so far shows how most of their careers are dominant.
Thus, the UFC has two undefeated champions, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Israel Adesanya, and as many as three unbeaten champions in promotion, namely Yan, Volkanovski and Usman. Many would include Jones in both of these groups, who still have the only defeat as a disqualification from Matt Hammil. Figueiredo was defeated only once in the Octagon, while it happened to Miocic three times. All of this makes the current range of UFC men’s champions amazing.
As can be seen very well in the graphics made by MMA Junkie, the current overall professional ratio of UFC champions is 165 wins and only eight defeats, while in the UFC Octagon there are 89 wins and five defeats, where three defeats fall on Stipe Miocic. This kind of dominance, primarily “on paper,” has yet to be seen in UFC history.
