Lightweight Champion (155) Conor McGregor
The highest paid and most iconic fighter on the UFC Roster. Conor McGregor is on the road to becoming the greatest MMA fighter to ever live. The 28-year-old Irishman has become known for the disastrous power that he wields in his left hand.

The first fighter in UFC history to ever hold two belts at once and compete in three different weight classes.

Holloway trains at Gracie Technics in Waianae, Hawaii under Rylan Lizares and Ivan Flores and sports a well-balanced and well-timed fighting strategy when he is in the cage. Fighters typically have a hard time catching him because of his movement and then once he has learned their timing he starts to pick them apart. His grappling techniques are top notch despite only having a purple belt but it’s his striking that makes him really effective.
Bantamweight Champion (135) Cody Garbrandt
The newest Champion on this list, Cody Garbrandt is also one of the youngest. at 25-years-old, Cody has amassed a perfect 11-0 record with 9 knockouts after a recent dominant win over the previous bantamweight kingpin Dominick Cruz.
