    Held the WW belt in the UFC. I'm not counting FLW since it's relatively new but they've a held a title in every other weight class except WW. Kinda surprising actually.

    Nope.

    The first Brazilian champs per weight class:
    HW: Nog
    LHW: Belfort*/Machida
    MW: Bustamante
    WW: None
    LW: RDA
    FW: Aldo
    BW: Barao
    FW: None

    *The flukiest fluke of a win, so I also included the next one.

    I think you're right. Below is a quiz for you guys where you list the champions in UFC history. Idk if this is where to post but anyways.

    Maia was the best chance. RDA won't get there sorry.

    If he counts as a Braziliian then over 90% of all champions would be counted as American.

    Or you’re not counting it because you said WW specifically. I read the rest of your post which later clarified it, but come on that is sloppy writing

    Also, Aldo duh. He’s only one of the greatest p4p fighters of all time. The others I can see forgetting but Aldo??

    Massive fail of a thread lol

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to 125lbs when he mentioned FLW.

    Might as well put an * by Nog because he never held the legit HW belt.
