The UFC featherweight championship changed hands for the first time in the promotion’s history last year. Until December 12, 2015 Aldo had been unbeaten in 10 years and was the only ever UFC featherweight champion.

His record stood at 25-1 before facing the young upstart Conor McGregor at UFC 194, and few expected his streak to be broken. The resulting 13-second KO by McGregor was truly an incredible moment.

Just like that the 18-fight streak of Aldo was broken. The Brazilian legend had been taken out of his long-held throne by a single straight left hand. It’s funny how these things happen in MMA.

It was also bizarre when McGregor found a new rival 25 pounds above his weight class. After Rafael dos Anjos was injured and forced off of UFC 197, Diaz stepped in and the agreed weight limit was welterweight (170 pounds).


Diaz emerged victorious after a truly thrilling fight. Their rivalry was so entertaining that the UFC decided to grant an immediate rematch to McGregor. After some squabbles over UFC 200, Diaz vs. McGregor 2 was set for August 20.

But what about the featherweight belt? The 145-pound title has sat on McGregor’s shelf for eight months now. Reports indicated that the Irishman would never return to 145 pounds. As a result the interim belt was set up for Aldo and Frankie Edgar at UFC 200.
