Everyone roots for the bridesmaid. Be it a shortcoming of skills, problems between the ears or just plain bad luck, plenty of great and talented athletes never end up getting their shot at the big tamale.
MMA is no different. This list counts down the 10 best UFC fighters still in search of their swipe at the brass ring.
The list contains the best active fighters in the UFC right now, not active fighters outside the UFC or UFC fighters with the best all-time resumes. That's why you don't see Fedor, Wanderlei Silva or Michael Chandler on the list. That list would be far too easy.
It also doesn't include fighters, such as Johny Hendricks, who have already been officially scheduled for a title fight. And interim title fights count.
