The heavyweight division in mixed martial arts (MMA) generally groups fighters between 205 and 265 lb (93 and 120 kg).
Although many ambiguities exist within the lower weight classes regarding division naming and weight limits, the Heavyweight division is, for the most part, uniform. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and most other North American MMA organizations such as Bellator MMA, WSOF, and King of the Cage (KOTC) abide by this interpretation to their 206–265 lb athletes as heavyweights. Pancrase's heavyweight division was 199–221 lb (90–100 kg) before being revised to its current 206–265 lb (93–120 kg) total.
