A chronological look at the UFC championship belts that changed hands in 2022 across the promotion's 13 different weight classes.

UFC flyweight champion: Deiveson Figueiredo

If you're wondering in anyone other than Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno has fought for the UFC flyweight title since late 2020, the answer is no. But at least they continue to entertain everyone, with their third bout at UFC 270 on Jan. 22 being no exception. In a back-and-forth fight, it was Figueiredo taking back the title via unanimous decision. All three judges scored it 48-47 for Figueiredo, the first fighter to win back the UFC flyweight title after losing it once before.
