We continue our "Prospects the UFC Should Sign" series, which will take us division by division, breaking down the top prospects who should be signed by the company.
The featherweight division is one of the most underrated divisions in terms of talent depth thanks to its introduction following the demise of WEC and the dropping of weight classes that many top lightweights have made.
The division is in a stranglehold right now under the rule of Jose Aldo, but top talent such as Frankie Edgar, Anthony Pettis and Chad Mendes are among the best 145-pounders currently in the UFC.
Here are five featherweight prospects that the UFC should sign to continue making featherweight one of the most competitive divisions.
Note: Here is last year's top-five list. Of the five, none of them were signed by the UFC.
