Although the most recognizable name to emerge from the featherweight division is undoubtedly the Conor McGregor, the division was in fact dominated for years by one of his opponents, and one of the best pound for pound fighters ever to fight in UFC.
Of his seven defenses, Aldo won by unanimous decision five times, underlining his technical superiority over every other fighter in the division.
However, a month before the fight Aldo was forced to withdraw due to a rib injury. With a hastily re-shuffled schedule, McGregor instead fought Chad Mendes for the interim featherweight title.
Conor McGregor had been steadily making a name for himself as one of the hardest punchers in the game.
Of his 6 UFC wins at that point, only one had gone the distance. As the second round wore on, however, Mendes was visibly breathing a lot more heavily.
With mere seconds left in the round, McGregor connected with a jab combination, and continued to connect with Mendes on the ground, causing the referee to stop the match.
That result catapulted McGregor even further towards stardom and, thanks in no small part to his trash talking and promotional skills, the unification fight with Aldo became even more hotly anticipated.
McGregor spent much of the build-up to the fight taunting Aldo, which many people suggested laid the groundwork for what finally transpired at UFC Clearly disorientated, Aldo sustained two more hammer blows on the ground before the referee called the fight.
McGregor had been by far the biggest draw in the featherweight division for a number of years, so when he decided to move up the weight classes after he became featherweight champion, he brought a lot of the media attention with him.
He remained featherweight champion for two years, without actually defending his title. He won the fight with a unanimous decision using a combination of low kicks and out striking his opponent.
In a controversial fight, in which de Randamie threw some punches after the bell which hurt Holm, de Randamie was declared the winner by unanimous decision.
Instead, Cyborg faced Tonya Evinger for the vacant title, knocking her out in the third round. Cyborg defended her title twice in the following year, first defeating Holly Holm by unanimous decision and then knocking out Yana Kunitskaya.
At UFC , Cybord defended her title against Amanda Nunes, who was moving up from bantamweight to challenge for the belt. In an extremely dominant display of powerful punching, Nunes knocked Cyborg out in 51 seconds, becoming the first woman to hold titles at two different weight classes simultaneously.
Featherweight fighters are light enough to have good agility and the ability to move for multiple rounds, while also heavy enough to regularly stop fights with punching power.
The men that have dominated the division, while being proficient wrestlers, are all chiefly known for their powerful striking ability: McGregor, Aldo, Holloway.
The same is true of the women, with Amanda Nunes winning her recent title through sheer punching power. While fights can go the distance, early stoppages are common.
When sheer power is at play, the potential for upsets is also higher since an underdog fighter may only need to land one punch to end a fight.
Another lesson that we can learn from the history of the featherweight division is the importance of recognizing when a fighter has passed their peak, or age is catching up with them.
UFC fighters are streaky, and once their momentum is halted and the aura of invincibility disappears it can be hard to recover.
Cruz emerged victorious via unanimous decision, and successfully defended his title the following year against Urijah Faber. However, a series of injuries hampered Cruz as he had to continually delay various title defenses.
Eventually, he was forced to vacate the bantamweight title in , and Renan Barao was promoted from interim to undisputed champion. Although he successfully defended his unified title against Faber at UFC , a few months later he was beaten by T.
Dillashaw at UFC Dillashaw was a big underdog going into the fight, and it remains one of the great upsets in UFC history.
An immediate rematch was on the cards, until Barao had health issues related to his weight cut, and had to withdraw.
Dillashaw instead successfully defended his belt against Joe Soto. The re-match with Barao eventually occurred in June , and once again Dillashaw dispatched with his opponent via TKO.
Dominick Cruz had finally overcome his series of injuries to make his return, four years after his last title fight. In an epic five-round encounter Cruz narrowly regained his title on a split decision.
Garbrandt was unable to hold the title for too long, after he was knocked out by Dillashaw at UFC After successfully defending his title in a rematch, and an unsuccessful shot at the flyweight title against Henry Cejudo, Dillashaw was banned in for failing a drug test, leaving the bantamweight title open.
Rousey was the first female athlete UFC ever signed, and was immediately installed as the bantamweight champion on her arrival.
Rousey set about consolidating her dominance with a series of breathtaking title defences. Early in her career she favored using an armbar to force opponents to submit, a habit she carried into her first two title defences.
Later she began to utilize her sheer striking power more, relying on an early blitz to overwhelm her opponent.
Indeed, her last three successful title defences were ended at , and respectively. For the years that Rousey was the bantamweight champion she was not just the most dominant UFC fighter in her division, but one of the most dominant athletes in the world.
Despite an incredibly impressive performance and one of the biggest upsets in UFC history, Holm was unable to defend her title, losing to Miesha Tate in her next fight.
As we start to move to heavier categories, the style of fighting shifts slightly from being predominantly wrestling based to being more mixed.
Speed and agility are still very important, but with slightly higher weight more powerful styles can be effective too.
Fighters with diverse abilities can be extremely successful — for example Ronda Rousey was equally effective with heavy punches as she was with her trademark armbar.
Nevertheless, anyone who was able to look through the hype and identify that the power of Holly Holm would cause Rousey problems in their title fight would have made a lot of money on that bet.
Flyweight is the lowest weight class for men, and the second-lowest class for women. One step up from strawweight, the athletes in this class are still chiefly defined by their speed, agility and technicality but with a little more power thrown in.
Johnson, or Mighty Mouse as he is commonly known, is one of the greatest fighters in UFC history and holds tons of records, including the most consecutive title defences with The flyweight title was created in , with the winner of a four-man tournament at UFC in Toronto to be crowned the inaugural champion.
Johnson, a wrestling and take-down specialist, saw each of his fights go the distance. In the final against John Dodson, Johnson survived a couple of scares before winning via a unanimous decision.
As the new flyweight champion, Johnson began the longest dominant reign in UFC history. Over the next 6 years Johnson successfully defended his title 11 more times against the greatest fighters in the division, including Olympic Gold Medalist Henry Cejudo and a re-match with Dodson.
Johnson is a highly technically skilled fighter, and the majority of his wins came from submission, or unanimous decision if the fight went the distance.
Over these six years, Johnson showcased his prowess at a vast array of diverse styles and introduced moves that had never been seen in the UFC before.He finally lost the title to Fabricio Werdum inwho lost it in his very next fight to Stipe Miocic. On the flip side, those moving down from light heavyweight will hope to overpower naturally smaller opponents with their superior striking.
