The UFC has announced its new championship belt ahead of its first UFC Fight Night event of 2019, but the new design has not gone down well with MMA fans and media, who have slammed the new-look strap on social media.

The UFC’s new “Legacy Championship Belt” features a complete redesign from the classic all-gold belt made famous around the waists of legendary UFC champions Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier.

The UFC Boss  showed off the new-look belt for the first time, and fans immediately responded. 

This is why Twitter was invented. 

Check out the tweets below: 

Irish superstar Conor McGregor retweeted the UFC’s announcement with the simple reply: 

“Ok I’m back”
