UFC In The 2010s: Looking Back At Welterweight Division

At the moment, Kamaru Usman runs the UFC's welterweight division, but previously, it was Georges St-Pierre who was the kingpin.

While his reign ended early in the decade, it’s hard not to think Georges St-Pierre when discussing the UFC’s welterweight division.

St-Pierre, who would later win the middleweight title, held the belt for over 2,000 days before relinquishing it.

At the moment, Kamaru Usman is the reigning champion, having won the belt late in 2019.
