List of current UFC fighters

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion[1], founded in 1993 by Art Davie and Rorion Gracie. The organization was purchased from its parent company SEG in 2001 by Zuffa LLC, a promotional company owned by Las Vegas casino magnates, Lorenzo Fertitta and Frank Fertitta and managed by Dana White (current president of operations). World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) was purchased by Zuffa in 2006[2] and officially merged under the UFC brand on January 1, 2011.[3][note 1] UFC was sold to WME-IMG in 2016,[4] and WME-IMG changed its holding name to Endeavor in September 2017.[5]

As of February 10, 2018 the UFC roster consisted of fighters from 60 countries, up from 49 countries in February 2015.[6]

Fighters represent United States, Brazil, Russia, Canada and England are among the top five countries in the list as per the date indicated only for the number could change week by week.[note 2] Updated June 28, 2018.

HistoryEdit

World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) was purchased by Zuffa in 2006[2] and officially merged under the UFC brand on January 1, 2011.[3] These records have been, and will be, continued as former Strikeforce fighters move on in the UFC.[note 1]

Strikeforce was purchased by Zuffa in 2011[7] and officially merged under the UFC brand on January 12, 2013.[8] All former Strikeforce fighters have had their Strikeforce record listed in place of their UFC record, starting with Strikeforce Challengers: Wilcox vs. Damm (the first Strikeforce event under Zuffa).

In 2016, UFC was sold to WME-IMG for $4 billion.[4] Since its inception, and through its Zuffa management, UFC has remained one of the more dominant MMA promotions in the world, playing host to a wide field of MMA fighters.[9]

In September 2017, WME-IMG formed a new holding company, Endeavor, and took on the portfolio formerly under the WME-IMG banner, including the UFC, Droga5, Professional Bull Riders, the Miss Universe Organization, Frieze, Dixon Talent, The Wall Group, Euroleague Basketball, ELEAGUE, and the Chinese subsidiary.[5][10][11]

Notes/KeyEdit

  1. This list provides an up-to-date roster of all fighters currently competing under the UFC promotional banner.[note 3]
  2. All names presented are in accordance with UFC website profiles and may include common nicknames or alternative spellings rather than birth names.[note 4]
  3. Fighters are organized by weight class and within their weight class by their date of debut in the Endeavor (WEC, Strikeforce or UFC - which ever the earliest debut date.[note 5]
  4. Endeavor records below are based on the combination of total fights which fighters fought under UFC, Strikeforce and WEC.[note 6]
  5. MMA records below are retrieved from Sherdog's website.[note 7]
  6. All asterisked fighters are listed by a combination of their UFC, Strikeforce and WEC records.[note 6]
  7. The flags listed in these tables are in accordance with the UFC's official telecasts and may not fully or accurately represent the full citizenship of the peoples listed. WC = Weight Class; G = Gender; SW = Strawweight; FYW = Flyweight; BW = Bantamweight; FW = Featherweight; LW = Lightweight; WW = Welterweight; MW = Middleweight; LHW = Light heavyweight; HW = Heavyweight; WSW = Women's Strawweight; WFYW = Women's Flyweight; WBW = Women's Bantamweight; and WFW = Women's Featherweight.[note 8]
  8. Fighters' age and height are based on information obtained from Sherdog's website.[note 9]
  9. Each fight record has four categories: wins, losses, draws and no-contests (NC).[note 10]
  10. Number of fighters in each division is counted as per date indicated only for the number could change week by week.[note 11]
  11. Rankings are based on information obtained from the UFC's website and updated when information has been obtained from the UFC's website (  /   = movement in rankings, (C) = Champion, (IC) = Interim Champion, and (NR) = not previously ranked).[note 12]
  12. The tables are sortable and the calculation for Endeavor and MMA records (Win-Loss-Draw (No Contest)) are formulated as follows: [note 13]
    • Plus one point of the total wins for fighters have not loss a fight: 5–0–0 = 6
    • Negative points of total loses for fighters have not won a fight: 0–3–0 = -3
    • Add number of wins to the winning percentage: 10–1–0 = 10.90 | 10 + (10/11)
    • A draw counts as 0.5: 8–4–1 = 8.65 | 8 + (8.5/13)
    • No contest does not factor as one of the variables of the calculation: 8–2–0 (1 NC) = 8.80 | 8 + (8/10)

RankingsEdit

The UFC rankings are rated by a panel made up by MMA media members. The panel votes for the top active fighters in the UFC by weight class and pound-for-pound. A fighter can be ranked in multiple divisions at the same time in divisions they have competed. The champions and interim champions are placed in the top positions of their respective weight classes and only the champions are eligible to be voted in pound-for pound rankings.

The rankings for the UFC's fighters are both recorded and updated when information has been obtained from the UFC's website.

Bantamweights (135 lb, 61 kg)Edit

In 2010, World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) merged with UFC and as part of the merger, all WEC's fighters were transferred to UFC.[323] On December 2010 WEC held the final Bantamweight Championship at WEC 53 which would be also the first UFC Bantamweigth Championship[324] where then current champion Dominick Cruz won the fight over Scott Jorgensen which made Cruz the last WEC Bantamweight champion and the first UFC Bantamweight Champion at the same time. [325] Cruz went on defended the bantam weight championship twice against Urijah Faber at UFC 132[326] and Demetrious Johnson (fighter) at UFC on Versus 6[327] and regained the title after a three year hiatus from injuries against T.J. Dillashaw on January 17. 2016 against Dillashaw where he won the fight via a split decision.[328] Cruz defended the belt against a third rematch with Urijah Faber and subsequently lost to Cody Garbrandt on December 30, 2016. During the absent of injured Cruz, Renan Barão fought and won the fight against Eddie Wineland at UFC 165 capturing the interim bantamweight belt.[329] Barao defended the batamweight championship against a rematch with Urijah Faber at UFC 149[1] but lost the championship belt to T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 173.[330] Dillashaw defended the championship twice with the wins over Joe Soto at UFC 177[331], Renan Barão iin a rematch at UFC on Fox 16,[330] and lost to Cody Garbrandt at UFC 207 which was Cruz first lost in ten years.[332] Grabrandt lost to Dillashaw, his former teammate twice, as a title defender and challenger at UFC 217[333] and at UFC 227 respectively, where Dillashaw is the current UFC bantamweight champion.[334][335]
