Crib to the Cage: The top eleven MMA Yearbook pics of UFC champions before they famous

The MMA Yearbook has returned. A throwback to both the ealy days of MiddleEasy and the early days of the current crop of UFC champions. Here is our updated top eleven MMA Yearbook pics of UFC champions before they famous.

1) Women’s Strawweight: Rose Namajunas

To be honest not much has changed apart from the hairstyle.

2) Women’s Bantamweight: Amanda Nunes

Doesn’t time fly when you’re the UFC champ.

3) Women’s Featherweight: Cris Cyborg

It’s incredibly hard to find an old Cris Cyborg photo, this was the best I could manage. If you can find any out there be sure to hit us up.

4) Flyweight: Demetrious Johnson

The mighty construction worker. From builder to Minecrafter. Legendary.

5) Bantamweight: T.J Dillashaw

‘Oh my goodness’ – *Joe Rogan voice*

6) Featherweight: Max Holloway

Max on the beach posing, who would have known the Blessed Era was imminent? #ItIsWhatItIs

7) Lightweight: Conor McGregor

I found this photo on a Sherdog forum titled ‘Did Conor McGregor get a nose job?’ What do you think?

8) Welterweight: Tyron Woodley

Voted most likely to steal your chick circa 1998.

9) Middleweight: Georges St. Pierre

Yikes! What a transformation. Arguably the best ever in the octagon and with life transformations.

10) Light Heavyweight: Daniel Cormier

DC back in the wrestling glory days.

11) Heavyweight: Stipe Miocic

Seriously, can this guy get any more likable? Show me a Stipe hater and I’ll show you an idiot. I’m also getting major Sage Northcutt vibes off those spikes.
