Weight classes in MMA

Weight categories in mixed martial arts

Weight classes in MMA (Mixed martial arts weight classes)

Since I often see a lot of confusion about weight categories today I want to list in general the common rules on weight so you too can go on the scales and know whothe UFC champions or Bellator might be that you should face.

Now it really depends on the Promotion rules, but in general the Weight categories in MMA are divided into these 9 categories:

  • Moscow
  • Rooster
  • Feather
  • Light
  • Welterweight
  • Medium
  • Massimo Leggeri
  • Maximum
  • Supermassimi

and if we consider the standard of Unified Rules (used by the UFC and also in Italy, with a few small exceptions) these are the categories:

Weight Categories or Classes in MMA with weight division:

  • Moscow (Fly Weight) in mixed martial arts groups fighters under 125 pounds (57 kg).
  • Roosters – bantamweight divisions include wrestlers up to 61.2 kg (135 pounds).
  • Featherweight divisions include fighters at 62 and 66 kg (136-145 pounds).
  • Lightweight – Light Weight includes fighters up to 70.3 kg (155 pounds).
  • Welterweight in the M.M.A. groups fighters weighing between 71 and 77 kg (156 and 170 pounds).
  • Middleweight divisions include fighters between 77.5 and 84 kg (171 to 185 pounds).
  • Light Heavyweight – (called the light heavyweight on wikipedia) clung to fighters weighing between 83 and 93 kg (186 and 205 pounds).
  • Heavy Weights are weight fighters between 93 and 120 kg (205 and 265 pounds).
  • Super Maximums: Not used in the UFC but covered by the rules

Consider that out of competition on average the weight is a 10 more, weight that is “cut” in the preparation before the match.

Now who’s the UFC champion that matches your weight, okay you feel ready?.

Con una passione per la difesa personale e gli sport da combattimento, mi distinguo come praticante e fervente cultore e ricercatore sulle metodologie di allenamento e strategie di combattimento. La mia esperienza abbraccia un vasto panorama di discipline: dal dinamismo del Boxing alla precisione del Muay Thai, dalla tecnica del Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu all'energia del Grappling, dal Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) all'intensità del Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Non solo insegno, ma vivo la filosofia di queste arti, affinando costantemente metodi e programmi di allenamento che trascendono il convenzionale. La mia essenza si riflette nell'autodifesa: Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), Dirty Boxing, Silat, l'efficacia del Jeet Kune Do & Kali, l'arte della scherma con coltelli e bastoni, e la tattica delle armi da fuoco. Incarno la filosofia "Street Fight Mentality", un approccio senza fronzoli, diretto e strategico, unito a un "State Of Love And Trust" che bilancia l'intensità con la serenità. Oltre al tatami, la mia curiosità e competenza si spingono verso orizzonti diversi: un blogger professionista con la penna sempre pronta, un bassista dal groove inconfondibile e un artigiano del coltello, dove ogni lama è un racconto di tradizione e innovazione. Questa sinfonia di abilità non solo definisce la mia identità professionale, ma dipinge il ritratto di un individuo che nella diversità trova la sua unica e inconfondibile voce e visione.
