The UFC has a system for its weight classes. Fighters are grouped into different categories according to their maximum and minimum weight limits. The lightweight division has an upper and lower limit of 145 pounds and a lower limit of 145 pounds. To fight in this division, fighters must weigh in within these limits at weigh-ins. However, they are allowed to miss the upper limit by one pound if they are fighting in a title fight. The same process applies to all other weight classes.
The UFC has eight weight classes for male competitors and two for women. Each male and female division has a different maximum weight limit. The flyweight division is the lowest, with a maximum limit of 125 pounds. It has never had a female champion, but the company did hold a four-man tournament to determine its first flyweight champion. Johnson won the competition and then went on to win two title defenses. The result was a solid performance from the flyweight division, which lent it credibility and a place among the UFC’s other weight divisions.
The UFC has 12 weight classes for men. There are eight divisions for men, and four for women. All champions must defend their titles every year. In addition to the eight men’s divisions, there are also divisions for women. The Strawweight weight class is reserved for women, while the Bantamweight, Flyweight, and Featherweight are reserved for men. The UFC has a female lightweight category but no other division.
The UFC weight classes have different names, but they don’t give you an indication of the competition weight. A fighter who is 155 pounds and a lightweight fighter at 185 pounds can fight in the welterweight division. Hence, the lightweight weight class doesn’t exist yet. Moreover, women don’t have a lightweight division as there are few female contenders. If you want to be a lightweight contender, make sure to sign up for the Lightweight weight class.
The weight classes are important for the sport. Some fighters are better than others in their respective weight class. You must be prepared to compete with a different opponent. If you are overweight, you will be forced to take a different weight division. If you are too heavy, you can lose the fight. Nevertheless, if you’re a lightweight, you should choose the appropriate class. You won’t get the chance to fight in the middleweight division.
The UFC has eight separate weight classes for male and female competitors. Each male category has its own divisions for women. The lightweight division has 111 fighters while the welterweight division has 109 fighters. The flyweight division has 46. The welterweight division has eight different weight categories. The UFC has also added a women’s lightweight category. While the male and female competitors compete in the same divisions, the divisions are not the same.

It’s best to know the difference between the different classes and understand the differences between them.
The UFC has weight classes for men and women. The male divisions range from featherweight to heavyweight, while the women’s divisions are divided into lightweight, welterweight, and super lightweight.

The women’s division was introduced in 2012 with the name of ‘lightweight’.
There are many weight classes in the UFC. The men’s divisions include lightweight, heavyweight, and middleweight. There are six weight classes for men, while women compete in the flyweight and strawweight divisions.

Its female competitors are ranked from featherweight to lightweight.
