Yair Rodriguez Exhibits Impressive Personalized UFC Belt

Yair Rodriguez may not hold an undisputed championship, but he possesses a belt that Alexander Volkanovski can’t lay claim to.

Set to headline UFC 290 in Las Vegas this Saturday, Rodriguez defends his interim featherweight title in a unification clash against the reigning champion, Alexander Volkanovski. A victory would grant Rodriguez the prestigious status of joining Alexa Grasso and Brandon Moreno as Mexican stars who currently hold undisputed titles.

In anticipation of the most significant fight of his career, “El Pantera” received a specially crafted championship belt, paying homage to his home country.

Below, you can view the video and photos showcasing this remarkable belt.

Rodriguez revealed that this unique masterpiece was a gift from his management, meticulously designed and created by the talented artists, Jacobo and María Ángeles.

Rodriguez earned the interim championship in February by securing a second-round submission against Josh Emmett at UFC 284. In his last five fights (excluding one no-contest), he has emerged victorious in four, defeating the likes of Emmett, Brian Ortega, Jeremy Stephens, and Chan Sung Jung, also known as “The Korean Zombie,” en route to facing Volkanovski.

Volkanovski’s previous outing saw him suffer a loss to Islam Makhachev in a lightweight title bout, which transpired during UFC 284. However, excluding that defeat, he boasts an impressive 12-0 record in the UFC. This Saturday, he aims to achieve his fifth consecutive successful defense of the featherweight title.
