The UFC wrapped up its slate of 2022 events on December 17 in the same venue where it put on its first fight card of the year, the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Between January 15 and December 17, there were 511 fights on 42 UFC cards. The first fight of the year was the lightweight matchup between T.J. Brown and Charles Rosa. The final contest was a welterweight scrap between Jared Cannonier and Sean Strickland.

When 2022 began, Valentina Shevchenko held the UFC women’s flyweight title, just like she did at the start of 2021, 2020 and 2019. Shevchenko defended that belt once in 2022, earning a split decision win over Taila Santos in June. This year marked the first time Shevchenko had fewer than two fights since became a full-time MMA competitor.

With no UFC cards scheduled until UFC Vegas 67 takes place on January 14, 2023 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Bloody Elbow takes a look back at the stats, facts and figures from each UFC weight division in 2022.
