Youth combined with unparalleled athleticism is starting to become a trend in the UFC.
Because MMA is such a young sport, new waves of talent develop quicker and burst onto the national scene in a big way.
These young fighters are well-versed in every area of the game and look like future Hall of Famers in their very first fight in the biggest company in MMA. Sooner than later, conversations start to emerge about a fighter becoming the greatest of all time at the age of 25. Oh Jon Jones, you are a special breed indeed.
Pound-for-pound greatest conversations aside, these are the top fighters under the age of 27 in the UFC.
