Is it proper to call the title holders as World Champions?

Considering UFC is based on invitation only, meaning only those who are invited by the UFC can fight in UFC, how would it be justifiable that they are called world champions?

There is no qualifying tournament, so as to say, or it is not a open competetion. It is based on the match ups decided by UFC to determine the no. 1 contender and then they fight for the belt.

Shouldnt they be just called UFC Champ instead World Champ?

they fight fighters from around the world so I think it makes them world champs, but then so could Pride Champs, K-1s champs be called world champs too.

You pretty much can in the UFC now, considering they are by far the number one organization. On the other hand, it doesn't make much sense to call the middleweight champion the world champ.

then again, it is only the fighters who UFC decide to invite. For ex., their contract doesnt allow Fedor to fight here who is widely regarded as No 1 in heavyweight. You dont get to be a world champ if you dont beat the no 1 player.

he has been invited he just has not accepted the invitations terms. The UFC is not going to turn down any good fighters that wish to fight for them (Vey few exceptions) So I believe it is safe to call the UFC champ is the world Champ
