The first half of 2014 has been a busy one for the UFC.
With so many events, rarely have fans been treated to a pay-per-view that is actually worth its salt in name-talent.
But UFC 173 more than fits the bill because Joe Silva and Co. have finally presented fans a main card worthy of a pay-per-view.
The event features a pair of elite scuffles comprised of Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson and Robbie Lawler vs. Jake Ellenberger. In addition, UFC 173 kicks off the night with two fights just waiting to explode with excitement: Takeya Mizugaki vs. Francisco Rivera and Jamie Varner vs. James Krause.
But, of course, the night culminates with a UFC title fight between defending champ Renan Barao and the best (and only) “monkey-style” fighter the division has ever seen, T.J. Dillashaw.
Barao comes in as a huge 8-1 favorite over his Team Alpha Male adversary. But having showcased an almost unprecedented level of technicality—such as what may be the best jab in MMA—during his unbelievable 33-fight unbeaten streak, the odds are justified.
Inspired by Renan "The Baron" Barao’s perfect organizational record, here are the 10 best active fighters who have never lost in the UFC.
