The ultimate goal for any professional fighter is to be a champion.
For an MMA fighter, that means winning a UFC title. To be champion means you will forever be remembered in MMA history. Even challenging for an UFC title means you're among the best in the world.
The fighters who comprise this list could see their names on the main-event section of a fight poster sometime soon.
All of the fighters on this list have qualifications to make their place not seem as absurd as some preview pieces. Some fighters possess exciting styles that propel them above the rankings while others have amazing skill sets.
Whatever their qualifications may be, all of them are likely to be seen challenging for a UFC title within the next two years.
