BIOGRAPHY

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a premier organization for mixed martial arts (MMA), with both local and international fighters making up its extensive roster. This 2500-word biography will serve as a comprehensive record of the current UFC fighters, their nationality origins, recent fighter arraignments and departures, fight schedules and results, and highlighting each division’s champion. As of the 21st July 2023 update, the UFC roster was comprised of fighters from 73 different nations.

Changes to the fighter roster occur frequently, usually due to differing circumstances such as the fighters’ contracts with UFC coming to an end, retirement, or getting released from UFC. There are instances where the release of fighters hasn’t been announced; these fighters are noted in this document based on their omission from UFC’s active fighters’ rosters.

On the other hand, there are fighters who have signed contracts with UFC but are yet to make their debut, fighters who have recently returned from an announced retirement, or those who are set to make their return to the UFC ring. A subsection of this record consists of fighters who are currently serving suspensions. This could be due to a variety of reasons, but the primary reasons include violation of anti-doping rules set by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) or the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), misconduct during fights or at event venues, or punishment imposed by UFC itself.

As at May 16, 2019, the UFC USADA testing program had sanctioned a total of 76 UFC fighters. It’s worth noting that classification of fighters by their country of origin is done in accordance with UFC’s official telecasts and may not fully or accurately reflect the fighters’ nationality.

The latest update to this document was made on the 28th of January, 2024, shortly after UFC 297. The ranking system of UFC fighters is diligently managed by a panel composed of MMA media members. These panelists cast votes for top active fighters in UFC, rating them by both weight class and pound-for-pound capability. It is possible for a fighter to be ranked under multiple divisions simultaneously provided he/she has competed in those divisions. The respective champion and interim champions are positioned at the top of their weight classes, and only they are eligible for consideration in the pound-for-pound rankings.

All official data regarding UFC fighters’ rankings is sourced directly from the UFC’s website, with the last update made on January 23, 2024, following UFC 297. UFC utilizes nine different weight classes, and the up-to-date list of champions was last updated on December 16, 2023, after the UFC 296 event. Notable contests include the match between Amanda Lemos and an opponent at UFC 292 on August 19, 2023, which saw Lemos emerging victorious.

A thrilling draw was recorded between Valentina Shevchenko and a rival at UFC Fight Night 227 on September 16, 2023. Further, fighter X had a remarkable run, defeating Max Holloway at UFC 251 on July 12, 2020, Brian Ortega at UFC 266 on September 25, 2021, Jung Chan-sung at UFC 273 on April 9, 2022, and Max Holloway again at UFC 276 on July 2, 2022. They also managed to defeat interim champion Yair Rodriguez at UFC 290 on July 8, 2023.

Furthermore, Alexander Volkanovski suffered two defeats, the first at UFC 284 on February 12, 2023, and the second one at UFC 294 on October 21, 2023. This paramount information serves as a fundamental guide for UFC enthusiasts to monitor the performance of their favorite fighters and stay up-to-date with crucial information.
