Some fighters get way less credit than they deserve for what they have accomplished—which is baffling when taking note of the talent possessed by them. But in this sport of mixed martial arts, it's just the type of thing that happens when the weight classes have fighters that can do what some of these fighters can do.
Some can be underrated as prospect, a contender or even as a champion (especially if they are not in the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator or DREAM), but exactly who could we say is a certain lock for an "underrated" fighter in the division?
It depends on who you ask, because the question could be answered by mentioning only UFC fighters, prospects, all-time greats or guys that don't get as much attention as one may think—despite being impressive in victory, so allow yours truly to warn you in advance that the majority of what you're about to see classified as underrated is referring to prospects that few, if anybody, is paying much attention.
As a matter of fact, with this collection not confined strictly to the Zuffa banner or Bellator, there's a 99 percent chance that you find yourself wondering who half of these dudes are, but some of these should look familiar to most of y'all.
With that in mind, let's take a look at the eight fighters, from the Flyweight division to the Heavyweight division, who are, arguably, the most underrated in their respective division right now.
