In the beginning, weight divisions were not defined and everybody was ranked in the same Open-Weight category (265). 
1993 is a year when two major promotions started - UFC and Pancrase.
Prior to that, Shooto was the solitary organized MMA promotion (Vale Tudo existed, but was not very structured).
