UFC through 100 shows
I thought it would be cool to share how the first 100 UFC shows have gone for me. I may back this up with a traditional dynasty from here on out.
For this save I have used this format. Every card is main evented by a title fight. The card also contains a 1 night 8 man tournament for the next title shot in the weight class. All fights are 60 minutes and judged on the whole. Vale Tudo rules. Other main card fights and prelims follow the same rules, but the amount of them varies by fighter availability.
UFC 1 took place on Saturday Week 4 July, 1993. UFC 100 took Place on Saturday Week 2 October, 2001. Of the fighters that fought on the real UFC 100 main card only, Thiago Alves, Frank Mir, and Dan Henderson have debuted. Mir has a 1-0 record, Alves is 0-1, and Henderson is 14-6 and a former 2 time Interim UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.
The company has grown from Low Level National to Low Level International.
The UFC Heavyweight Championship made it's debut at UFC 4 with Maurice Smith defeating Rickson Gracie by TKO. Much like the real Heavyweight belt until Stipe, nobody has defended the belt more than twice, with Rickson and Oleg Taktarov both accomplishing this feet. The current Champion is Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira having defeated Jeff Monson by Armbar at UFC 98 for the title. Noguiera is set to make his first defense against Hugo Duarte at UFC 102.
Light Heavyweight/Superfight Championship:
The UFC Superfight Championship was decided in a tournament final at UFC 1 as Rickson Gracie defeated Marco Ruas by Rear Naked Choke. The title became the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship when the Heavyweight Championship was introduced and current Champion Murilo Bustamante elected to fight in the Light Heavyweight Division. The Current Champion is Chuck Liddell, who just came back from a 2 year hiatus and unified the belt by defeating the Interim Champion Alistair Overeem by Unanimous Decision at UFC 100.
The UFC Middleweight Championship was decided in a tournament final at UFC 19 with Masakatsu Funaki defeating Matt Hume by armbar. Funaki is now in his 2nd reign with the belt with 15 successful title defenses, a UFC record. His last fight he defeated Jorge Patino by Rear Naked Choke at UFC 97.
The UFC Welterweight Championship was introduced at UFC 40 with Carlos Newton defeating Luis Fraga by Unanimous Decision in a Tournament Final. Matt Serra's 4 defenses is the record for this belt. The current champion is Karo Parysian in his 2nd reign having defeated Antonio McKee at UFC 96 by Unanimous Decision. Parysian is set to defend the belt against Luis Fraga at UFC 101.
This is a fairly new belt, being introduced at UFC 78 with Christiano Marcello defeating Ralph Gracie in a tournament final by Unanimous Decision. Marcello is the only man to hold the belt having 4 successful defenses since then. The most recent being over Rafael Cordeiro by Rear Naked Choke at UFC 99.
The UFC has had 3 fighters win belts in 2 weight classes. Rickson Gracie (Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight) Murilo Bustamante (Light Heavyweight and Middleweight), and Carlos Newton (Middleweight and Welterweight). None held the belts simultaneously.
