The featherweight division is something of a Wild West in the UFC. There is a stand-tall sheriff in Jose Aldo who is beginning to show signs of slowing down. Chan Sung Jung is the new man from out of state who wants his badge (or in this case, the belt). Behind him are a pack of blood-thirsty outlaws and hired guns who are hellbent on taking what is theirs.

While well-known gunslingers like Cub Swanson, Frankie Edgar, Ricardo Lamas and Nick Lentz have their sights set on a short-term title shot, a brood of young guns are hoping to build momentum for their respective run toward the title.

Each contender has the desire to make it to a top-contender bout. Each holds an array of fundamental tools to succeed. The question is, who can string together the right kind of victories and survive the murderers' row that is the featherweight division?
