Diversification of Title Holders

There was a time when the majority of UFC champions were Caucasian Americans made up the majority of the UFC roster and the title holders. It seems obvious that as the sport has exploded, the roster has diversified, and the UFC has expanded around the world that the champions would reflect that. It's obvious but still cool.

Heavyweight- Mexican American

Light Heavyweight- African American

Middleweight- African American

Welterweight- Caucasian Canadian

Lightweight- African/Korean American

Featherweight- African Brazilian

Bantamweight- Caucasian American

Flyweight- African American

Compared to a time when Frank Mir, Chuck Liddel, Rich Franklin, Matt Hughes and BJ Penn reigned supreme.
