Last night at the Bell Center in Montreal, several Canadians were given an opportunity to showcase their MMA skills on the world's most prestigious stage.
Canada has embraced the fledgling sport emphatically and is producing many excellent fighters. The most famous one of all is the undisputed welterweight champion of the world, GSP.
While Top 10 lists are inherently subjective and lack empirical significance, here is a list of 16 fighters from Canada that have earned recognition and deserve accolades for their evolution and quality performances.
Please note these arbitrary rankings do not solely represent career achievements, rather they are a reflection of today's MMA climate and are based on the athletes' recent performances, upside and momentum. It is a snapshot taken today of which fighters are best aligned to make a run at being the next great Canadian champion .
