The future is bright for the UFC. In the past, it has combined home-grown talent with outside stars and created one of the most prolific, showstopping spectacles in the Milky Way.
But what it needs most is certainty. It needs to know that each and every one of its superstar-rich divisions is being managed accordingly.
For this to happen, one distinguished and significant athlete needs to step up and take the reins in each division. They must transcend their respective weight classes, map their own courses and dictate the rungs on the divisional ladders.
Fortunately for the UFC, these names are already gracing the roster. Whether they've already reached their potential or are destined to peak in the future, they're there.
