In the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, no weight class has had bigger marquee fights than the boys at light heavyweight. It is a weight class that features some of the most popular fighters that the sport has ever known, and for a long time was the toughest division in all of MMA.
From early pioneers to the current crop of elite fighters at 205 pounds, fans have loved the combination of knockout power, speed and athleticism that the division offers.
If you need any indication of the importance that the light heavyweight division has played for the UFC, you need only turn to the UFC Hall of Fame. Of the last five fighters inducted, four of them spent a considerable amount of their career competing at 205 pounds.
After the popularity of the recent article 20 All-Time Fan Favorite MMA Heavyweights, I have decided to return for an installment for the light heavyweight division.
