UFC Women’s Flyweight Division - 2022

Flyweight is a weight class in combat sports. In MMA, the Flyweight division is within 116 - 125 pounds. A flyweight division for women in the UFC was the need of the hour since time immemorial with several female fighters who were competing at 115 and 135 pounds craving for the opportunity to fight at their natural weight of 116 - 125 pounds.

The UFC finally relented, introducing the new division in December, 2017 where the inaugural title was contested in Las Vegas at the Ultimate Fighter: A new world champion Finale.

The inaugural UFC Women’s Flyweight Title fight was contested in December in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion finale. The inaugural title fight was between two fighters who appeared on the 26th season of The Ultimate Fighter, as Nicco Montano defeated Roxanne Modafferi to win become the inaugural champion.


Montano's withdrawal from UFC 228 due to weight cut issues led to her being stripped of the title in 2018 and thus Valentina Shevchenko won the vacant title after defeating Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231. Shevchenko has since defended her title four times, with a title reign of 732 days and counting.
