As this is the third annual installment of the list, it's good to look back and see what fighters were included in the previous years.
Of the 10 participants included in this series, four have been inked by the UFC. Those men are Icelandic sensation Gunnar Nelson, Dominican-Canadian terror Alex Garcia, multifight veteran Kenny Robertson and future TUF 19 competitor Cathal Pendred.
Nelson is 3-0 in the UFC, but he hasn't kept very busy due to injuries. In that time, he has defeated DaMarques Johnson, Jorge Santiago and Omari Akhmedov, all of whom are respectable opponents.
Robertson got put on this list after going 0-1 and being cut from the UFC. It didn't seem like a rational cut, especially considering he was only given one chance against a tough guy like Mike Pierce. He did make it back, but right now, he is 2-2 with the UFC in his current run, holding wins against Brock Jardine, via highlight-reel Suloev Stretch, and Thiago Perpetuo.
Garcia has become a recent phenom with the company, already holding a 2-0 mark in the UFC. He annihilated Ben Wall in his premiere before outslugging Sean Spencer in a fun bout at UFC 171.
Pendred is a cast member of TUF 19 who is already considered a favorite to win the show. The Irishman seems to be someone that it can use when the UFC pushes into Ireland later this year, as the teammate of Conor McGregor is a high-level guy with a bright future.
Here are all 10 names of the men included on the series. You will see that one man from a previous ranking set returns this year.
