Except I've gotten away from it quite a bit over the last half-year. Who teh champions now?!

Featherweight* - Jose Aldo  
Bantamweight* - Dominick Cruz  
* 145# and 135# weight classes were added recently with the acquisition of the WEC fight promotion. Rumor has it they'll be adding a 125# weight class. All of the lighter weights are stacked with talent and the fights are action-packed and very enjoyable.
