The featherweight division in mixed martial arts refers to different weight classes:
- UFC's and Pancrase's featherweight division with an upper limit of 145 lb (66 kg)
- Shooto's featherweight division, which limits competitors to 135 lb (61.2 kg)
- ONE Championship's featherweight limits between 146 and 155 lb (65.9 to 70.3 kg)
Ambiguity and clarification
For the sake of uniformity, most American mixed martial arts media outlets consider Featherweight competitors to be between 136 and 145 lb (61 and 66 kg). King of the Cage (KOTC) refers to its 145 lb (66 kg) division as bantamweight whereas Shooto refers to its 143 lb (65 kg) division as lightweight. The UFC uses the Nevada definition of "featherweight".
