Another solid mini-documentary on the inception, design, and evolution of their championship belts.

Thankfully the latest updated design was not mentioned... It's almost as if they're acknowledging that it absolutely sucks, lol

Interesting design, with the guy's hand raised higher than the top of the front plating

When they say they went with a large manufacturer to meet the growing demand, they mean they started to cheap out on the belts and that they started making belts the fans could buy that were pretty much the same belt. So in other words it is the same belt.

I remember at the time people here thought this was sacrilege and the UFC was being cheap. I had to agree. They also stopped giving a belt out sometimes when a champ defended the belt. Which of course was very cheap considering the belts now were even cheaper to make.

We had a beltmaker here on the UG who gave us a detailed breakdown of the history of belts.

I have no idea what the current belt is but the one with the dude extending above his head looks cool.
