Kelvin Gastelum for interim title. However, after beating some of the other top contenders in the division, Cejudo earned a re-match in April , at UFC In a tense and technical encounter, Cejudo was awarded the win by the judges via split decision.
Cejudo meanwhile went on to successfully defend this title against regular bantamweight TJ Dillashaw in , with an impressive display of striking.
As of now the title is vacant and up for grabs. Montana was due to defend her title against Valentina Shevchenko, but ran into health problem related to making her weight.
The title was stripped, and Shevchenko instead faced Joanna Jedrzejczyk who was moving up from strawweight for the vacant belt. Since then she has defended her title three times against Katlyn Chookagain with the last matchup taking place Feb 8th, at UFC Show won the match with a TKO in the third.
More recently there was a scheduled matchup against Joanne Calderwood for June 6th, but the match was postponed due to a leg injury.
Similar to strawweight, flyweight fighters are mostly associated with speed and technical skill. The lowest weight categories are less likely to rely on sheer power, and flyweight fights are often defined by off-the-charts cardiovascular fitness and strong wrestling skills.
While KOs and TKOs do occur in flyweight fights, submissions are typically the more common way for a fight to conclude.
Fights often go the distance too, where competent technical displays are rewarded by the judges. Strawweight is one of three UFC weight classes that women compete in, and the only class that is exclusively for women.
It is the lightest weight class in the UFC. The inaugural strawweight champion was Carla Esparza when she won the first ever title in The UFC added the weight class in season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter, and signed Esparza along with 10 other fighters to compete in a tournament to determine the strawweight champion.
Esparza faced Rose Namajunas in the final. In a dominant performance, Esparza eventually made Namajunas tap out at of the third round.
She lost her title a mere three months later to Joanna Jedrzejczyk, a Muay Thai kickboxing specialist from Poland.
Jedrzejczyk enjoyed a longer spell as strawweight champion, successfully defending her title five times between and In her first shot at the tile since she was beaten by Esparza in the inaugural championship bout, Namajunas was considered a pretty big underdog against the undefeated champion.
However, she gave a dominant display of striking which led to a first round TKO with Jedrzejczyk floored by a left hand.
Namajunas successfully defended her title in the rematch at UFC , which went the distance. As the lightest category, Strawweight fighters are not typically associated with great power.
Rather they tend to be agile and technically skilled, not relying on sheer natural strength to beat their opponents.
There is no lower limit for strawweight fighters and, just like in all classes, fighters have been known to bulk up and fight at the category above.
Recently, former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk has shifted to lb flyweight. Strawweight is one of the younger divisions in UFC, so there is still a lot of fluctuation in terms of both fighters and statistics.
The lack of huge power and focus on wrestling and technical skills means that fights often go the distance, and early KOs are not so common.
Two notable exceptions from UFC are:. One is practical — although UFC is growing, it still has a comparatively small field of athletes.
Spreading a thin field across two many weight classes would harm the integrity of the contest — resulting in many mis-matches and uncompetitive fights.
In the case of cruiserweight a class traditionally between light heavyweight and heavyweight there simply has historically not been enough fighters around that weight to justify the class in UFC.
Furthermore, recent evidence suggests that the weight difference between light heavyweight and heavyweight is perfectly reasonable as it is — Daniel Cormier is a recent champion in both classes.
As for the lack of a super heavyweight category — one with no upper limit — the same is true, but even more so. Finding enough skilled fighters over, for example, lb to make a competitive field is tricky.
What would probably happen is huge men would be brought into UFC with little or no actual martial arts ability. Safety is another concern.
UFC has received criticism in the past for heavier fighters making drastic weight cuts to fight in lower classes, endangering the naturally lighter fighters.
Without an upper limit, fighters on the border with heavyweight class could face physical disadvantages and serious danger against much heavier opponents.
In the early days of UFC, before it became a more reputable sporting institution, weight classes were yet to be introduced and rules in general were at a minimum.
This isn't Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Slams should stay. And fighters like Wiman should be wary of protecting themselves in those positions.
Wagenheim: MMA is the concussion business. We might not want to acknowledge that, because it can douse our fandom with a cold shower of harsh reality.
But this is a sport where the goal is to damage an opponent, with the biggest bull's-eye typically affixed on the opponent's head.
Knockouts are riveting. Knockouts are revolting. I know a lot of lifelong sports fans who can't bring themselves to watch MMA, and its combat cousin, boxing, especially at a time when games like football are taking measures to lessen the violence.
Even those of us who watch fights every weekend can feel conflicted. Sometimes a finish brings a queasy feeling to the stomach.
Leavitt showed maturity beyond what might be expected of a fighter making his UFC debut. Wiman, who had made 17 previous trips inside the Octagon, inexplicably put himself in jeopardy.
