Odds of Each Top 10 UFC Featherweight Capturing the Title
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC currently employs a number of dominating champions, but few rule so absolutely as Jose Aldo rules the featherweight division.

Aldo won the WEC title back in 2009, became the first UFC champ at 145 pounds when the promotions merged in 2010, and has looked near-invincible over that span. 

But of course, he's not invincible, and there is a capable stable of fighters are champing at the bit for their chance to dethrone him.

Here we assess the UFC featherweight class' current landscape, examining the title aspirations of each of the division's top 10 fighters, as ranked by the UFC.

Each contender has been tagged with a probability that identifies the likelihood of them ever gaining the strap. That probability is based on a number of factors, including ability, age and current station within the division.

Please note that while Anthony Pettis is scheduled to fight Aldo this summer; he is not ranked as a featherweight fighter, and consequently is not on the list.

Also note that each fighter's chances are informed by the speculation that Aldo may one day leave the division for lightweight. This means youth is especially valuable, since the road to the title five years from now may lack the biggest obstacle currently blocking it.

Read on to see who is most likely to don featherweight gold before they call it quits.
