Jones became a sensation, the biggest American star of the UFC and earned an international sponsorship deal with Nike. A big favorite with fans, Jones utilizes devastating and physically impressive offensive moves, like spinning kicks.
Despite his at times unorthodox striking, Jones is also an extremely competent wrestler and a versatile fighter. However, soon after the fight Jones tested positive for cocaine before being arrested for an alleged hit and run incident in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Cormier submitted Johnson in the third round to become the new light heavyweight champion — the first new champion in four years.
Cormier successfully defended his belt twice, first against Alexander Gustafsson and then in a rematch against Johnson.
Meanwhile, Jones returned from suspension and defeated Ovince Saint Preux in for an interim title, before receiving a second suspension for doping violations.
Finally, he returned again to face Cormier in a grudge match for the title in at UFC After a close fight, Jones connected with a high kick to the head in the third round, leading to a TKO victory.
However, Jones again failed a doping test, testing positive for an anabolic steroid, and once again his title was stripped.
Jones was faced with yet another suspension. Meanwhile, Cormier was declared the light heavyweight champion, but opted not to defend his belt and instead moving back to the heavyweight division.
Finally, after another year of suspension, Jones returned to regain his vacant light heavyweight title again, defeating Gustafsson in a TKO.
Jones has since defended his title four times once against Gustafsson earning for himself a record for the most wins in UFC title fight history. Heavy strikers are the order of the day in the light heavyweight class.
However, when we analyze the most dominant athlete in the history of the class, Jon Jones, it is clear that a varied skill-set is still necessary to thrive in the division.
Jones has devastating power, but is also an extremely awkward fighter and capable of winning fights both via submission and points.
There is also, perhaps surprisingly, room for different body shapes in the division. Nevertheless, the fights between the two were by no means walk-overs, as Cormier found ways to affect Jones, even if he could not emerge victorious.
While bad for competitiveness, there are still prop bets available to make money from dominant athletes. For example, many sportsbooks will allow you to bet on the number of successful titles defenses over time or how a specific fight will be decided.
The middleweight division is home to Anderson Silva, holder of the longest run as a champion in any class and widely regarded as one of the best strikers of all time.
Although heavy striking is common, wrestling skills remain extremely important in the middleweight class. The middleweight title had a somewhat stilted beginning due to a high turnover of middleweight fighters in the UFC.
The first title was won by Dave Menne in , but he lost the title almost immediately to Murilo Bustamante. The Brazilian Bustamante successfully defended his title against Matt Lindland, before leaving the UFC in to sign for a competitor.
This left the middleweight title vacant for a couple of years, before wrestling specialist Evan Tanner won the vacant title at UFC 51 in Tanner defended his title against Rich Franklin in the same year.
In a back and forth fight the challenger gradually inflicted so much damage to the face of Tanner that the fight was stopped by the ringside doctor.
Silva was an up-and-coming star in UFC who was developing a reputation as a fearsome and accurate striker. That was the start of the longest reign of a champion in UFC history.
In total Silva successfully defended his belt ten times between and , leading many to consider him the greatest fighter the UFC has ever seen.
However, Silva was also a talented wrestler, successfully defending himself when opponents forced the fight to the mat and winning a number of fights via submission, as well as TKO.
In a title defense at UFC , Chris Sonnen was widely considered to be leading the fight with two minutes to go of the final round, when Silva managed to lock up an armbar and force Sonnen to submit.
In his eleventh title defense, Silva faced Chris Weidman as a big favorite. Silva again began the fight with some showboating, dropping his hands and goading Weidman.
As he attempted his customary dodging, however, Weidman connected with a left hook just as Silva was weaving his head. Silva was knocked out in possibly the most shocking moment in UFC history, and Weidman was the new middleweight champion.
Silva was given the chance to immediately regain his title at UFC In the second round, Anderson looked to connect with a low kick, which had been an effective weapon throughout both fights.
The referee immediately stopped the fight, and with two of the most dramatic victories UFC has ever seen, Weidman remained the middleweight champion.
Silva never truly recovered, and after testing positive for illegal substances he would go on to only ever officially win one more UFC fight.
In total, Weidman successfully defended the title three times in almost three years, as injuries hampered both he and the main contenders.
Weidman eventually lost his title in an epic fight against Luke Rockhold, who in turn immediately lost to Michael Bisping in a big upset. Bisping successfully defended his title once before being scheduled to fight the returning welterweight superstar Georges St-Pierre.
In a close and bloody fight, St-Pierre gained the upper hand after connecting with a left hook in the third round and wrapping up Bisping with a rear-naked chokehold when he fell to the canvas.
Soon after becoming only the fourth UFC athlete at the time to hold titles at two separate weight classes, St-Pierre decided to retire from the sport due to recurring injuries and advancing age.
Meanwhile, Robert Whittaker of New Zealand defeated Yoel Romero for an interim middleweight title, expecting to fight for the unified title against the winner of St-Pierre and Bisping.
When St-Pierre announced he was vacating the middleweight title in December , Whittaker became the undisputed middleweight champion. Middleweight fights see the balance tip more towards boxing and striking, and slightly away from wrestling.
Wrestling is still important, however, and many fighters have found success in the division by focusing on technical ground skills.
The power of the fighters tends to make for some particularly brutal fights, with early stoppages always a distinct possibility. When the middleweight division pairs two fighters who rely on striking as their main method of attack, you can anticipate a fight to end early.
Fighters moving up to middleweight are likely to try to win via submission or wrestling, as they may not have the power to knock out the naturally heavier man.
On the flip side, those moving down from light heavyweight will hope to overpower naturally smaller opponents with their superior striking.
Although he went into his fight against Weidman as a big favorite, Silva had been rattled in recent matches and was becoming reckless with his showboating.
Anyone who looked beyond the headline of ten consecutive title defenses may well have predicted the outcome.
Welterweight fighters are more powerful, but still mobile enough to be very effective wrestlers. The welterweight title is one of the oldest in UFC, with Pat Miletich becoming the first champion in He held the title for three years and defended it four times, before eventually being submitted by the Caribbean Carlos Newton.
