The UFC closed out 2022 on December 17 in the same venue the promotion staged its first event of 2022, the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Between January 15 and December 17, there were 511 fights on 42 UFC fight cards. The UFC opened its year with a lightweight matchup between T.J. Brown and Charles Rosa. The promotion’s final contest of 2022 was a welterweight scrap between Jared Cannonier and Sean Strickland.

The first UFC title fight of 2022 came on January 22 when Deiveson Figueiredo defeated Brandon Moreno via unanimous decision in the co-main event of UFC 270. With Figueiredo out of action, the UFC held an interim flyweight title fight in July. Moreno knocked out Kai Kara-France in that matchup. A unification bout between Figueiredo and Moreno is scheduled as the first UFC title fight of 2023. The two meet for the fourth time in the co-main event of UFC 283, which is scheduled to go down on January 21, 2023, at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

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