UFC unveils new Legacy title belt design

When the UFC's new era begins on ESPN tomorrow (Saturday, January 19), it will also mark the start of a new era for the company's championship titles.

The winner of Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw's flyweight title fight will be the first person to receive the UFC Legacy Championship belt, which is a new design for all of the company's titles. Dana White appeared on ESPN's "Get Up" this morning to unveil the new title belt design.

“This Saturday begins a new era for UFC, and it’s a perfect time to unveil our new UFC Legacy Championship belt,” White said in a press release. “The belt honors UFC’s past, while recognizing the amazing accomplishments of our current champions."

The UFC noted that the Legacy title belt is worth three times more than its predecessor, which had been in use since 2001. The Legacy title belt "will be uniquely customized for each individual champion by the athlete’s country, weight class, and number of title defenses. Each belt will be assigned its own serial number and will feature UFC president Dana White's engraved signature for authenticity."

The UFC also released an infographic about the Legacy belt:
