UFC on Fox 6: Erik Koch vs. Ricardo Lamas Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Erik Koch and Ricardo Lamas have emerged as two of the top contenders in the featherweight division, so a title shot could be on the line when they meet on the UFC on Fox 6 main card.

At one point, Koch had already been pegged as the top 145-pound contender, but an injury has kept him out of action for 16 months and caused him to lose his shot at champion Jose Aldo.

Likewise, Lamas was briefly linked to a championship bout with Aldo before the UFC opted to put together a superfight of sorts between the Brazilian titleholder and former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (via SportsTownChicago.com h/t MMARecap.com).

On Saturday, one of these fighters will at least temporarily fall out of the running for a title shot, while the other could put himself at the front of the pack of featherweight contenders.

Let's take a look at which fighter has the advantage heading into this matchup.
