Have you ever watched a UFC event and thought to yourself – “i really want to have a UFC Belt that i can raise above my head”. I know I have, and I found a simple solution to this problem – enter The Official UFC Championship Replica Belt.
Personally I like to keep mine on the wall the same as a picture or poster, but if your really feeling like a champion, I guess you could wear it to work, or out on a random shopping exploration from time to time for fun 🙂
Although its synthetic leather (which is the only real difference to the genuine UFC Championship Belt seen in the cage), the stitching is beautifully done, and the embossed graphics detail on the belt is an absolutely perfect imitation of a genuine UFC Championship Belt – also the very fact that it comes from the official UFC store, just gives you more of that authentic feel to this belt in general.
Heres a video of this UFC replica belt so you can see it in the flesh –
There Can be Only One!
Don’t even deny it, if like me you’ve been a fan of MMA for most of your life, and also like me if you have seen every single UFC event from UFC 1 – then no doubt you have imagined standing inside the octagon getting the UFC Championship Belt wrapped around your waist.
From UFC 1 to UFC 207 that has just passed, all MMA fans are familiar with that passionate, excited and emotional expression that fighters have on their face as they hear the words “and still” or “and the new!” undisputed UFC champion of the world!
Then as Dana White comes up behind them, and wraps the belt around their waist, you can see these amazing reactions on their face come to their high point.
The reason its the most powerful reactions in the UFC, is because fighters know they have reached the pinnacle of MMA, because although we do have Bellator, Rizin, Cage Warriors, One FC, World Series of Fighting and other promotions, we all know that still to this day there is only one top promotion in the world of MMA and that is the UFC without question.
So there really can only be one choice, if your a fan of MMA looking for a replica of the top belt in MMA. Also if your aspiring to be an MMA fighter, then the goal is simple – become a UFC champion, and with this amazing replica belt, you are going to be able to get familiar with the feeling of being the Champ, way before you get the real thing wrapped around your waist inside the octagon.
Just think how cool that would be, like literally designing your future dreams here, getting prepared for the greatness you will achieve – also you know that when you get the real belt, I will still be here giving the world of MMA its growing voice, and I will no doubt write an article on your road to glory 🙂
My 3 favourite parts of this Belt
The Detail – is just insanely accurate, I’m serious just buy one and then go and ask a UFC fighter especially a current or former champion, and they will tell you that other then the weight, they cannot tell the difference between their real UFC Championship belt, and this UFC Replica Championship Belt. The UFC directly state that –
“It has been painstakingly replicated to the finest details of the original Championship belt, so you can be sure you’ve got your hands on a piece of authentic UFC history.”
The Stitching and 18k Gold/Silver Plating – the stitching is just done so well as I said at the start, so there’s no fraying or misaligned stitching, everything is tight and perfectly aligned. The 18k Gold/Silver plating on a zinc alloy is done to a really high standard, and I know my metals/plating processes as I’ve done it for work before, ad let me tell you this is top draw plating that has been done on this Replica Belt –
I still maintain though that the UFC should really put 18k solid gold on all the belts, because that would certainly be a great extra bonus pay off for fighters. Although it should be noted that the UFC have on occasions put Solid Gold plates on belts, as Chris Weidman once stated, saying his belt cost over $333,000!
The Feel of a Champion – as I said in the last section there really can only be one, so with that in mind, one of my other favourite parts about this belt is not a physical aspect to the belt itself, but is rather, the memories, the dreams and aspirations of glory that come up in your mind when you hold one of these UFC Replica Belts in the flesh. It is a powerful thing to experience trust me 🙂
- Tight hand-stitching, is really professional without a single area of fraying, or misaligned stitching.
- The beautiful solid Brass snap closures are made with precision, which makes taking the belt on and off very easy.
- Can be shipped to any country in the world for a flat rate of $6.99.
- Comes in a beautiful black velvet zippered sleeve, which will help to keep its lustre and general condition top notch.
- The plates are made of Zinc alloy plates with 18K gold and silver plating, (which apart from some cases where solid Gold has been used) is exactly the same as the real UFC Championship Belt you see wrapped around fighters waists inside the octagon, giving you a truly authentic feel to the belt.
- The synthetic leather belt strap looks and feels just as good as the genuine leather belt strap that you see inside the UFC octagon, plus if you are a big animal lover like me, then you will prefer the fact that this UFC Replica Championship is made with synthetic leather.
- It weighs approximately 5.85lbs, which while that is not as heavy as the authentic UFC belt (which weighs about 12 pounds), 5.85 pounds is still sturdy enough, and is light to carry with ease.
- It measures approximately 50″ inches in length, the exact same length as the authentic UFC Championship Belt you watch being used in UFC Championship bouts on TV.
- The embossed graphics are designed so well, the attention to detail is astonishing, and again you will not be able to tell the difference between this and the real UFC belt.
- Its officially UFC branded, which considering that this is a UFC Belt is very important to note.
- Synthetic leather belt strap might be a little bit annoying to some people, especially if your a big fan of genuine leather, but personally I prefer synthetic leather as I don’t agree with animals being killed routinely for random clothing items.
- Its a little expensive for what it is, but at the same time this is exclusive official UFC material which is the only belt that is 99.9% the same as the one you see in the octagon, and the collectable value is very high, so bear that in mind.
And the new UFC Champion is YOU!
You’ve officially been crowned, because there is no doubt that if your looking for the closest imitation of the genuine UFC Championship Belt, then you will not get any better then this UFC Replica Championship Belt. In fact as I said earlier, the only differences from the the real UFC Championship Belt that is seen in the octagon, is that this Replica Belt has a synthetic leather belt strap and is a bit lighter.
But anyway its time to crown yourself as the new UFC Champion in your mind, in preparation for becoming a real UFC Champion, so get your Belt right HERE.
