The featherweight division in mixed martial arts can refer to a number of different weight classes:

  • WEC's & Pancrase's featherweight division, which groups competitors within 136 to 145 lb (62 to 66 kg)
  • Sengoku Raiden Championship's (SRC) featherweight division, which limits competitors to 143 lb (65 kg)
  • DREAM's featherweight division, which limits competitors to 139 lb (63 kg)
  • Shooto's featherweight division, which limits competitors to 132 lb (60 kg)

Ambiguity and clarificationEdit

For the sake of uniformity, most American mixed martial arts media outlets consider Featherweight competitors to be between 136 to 145 lb (61 and 66 kg). This encompasses the Pancrase Featherweight division (141 lb / 64 kg) now revised to 145 lb (66 kg); United States-based King of the Cage (KOTC), where it is known as the bantamweight division 145 lb (66 kg); Shooto, where it is known as the lightweight division 143 lb (65 kg); the Sengoku Featherweight division, the DREAM Featherweight division, and World Extreme Cagefighting's (WEC) Featherweight division.

The featherweight limit, as defined by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, is 145 lb (66 kg).
