Generation Next: 10 Fighters Destined To Wear MMA Gold

In every sport, there are contenders. Contenders all participate to win a championship. They go through years of grueling, intense physical trials just for a shot at saying that they are the best.

For example, in hockey the contender is participating to win the Stanley Cup. Amateur wrestlers hope to one day hold a gold medal at the Olympics. Football players lay their lives on the line for a chance to hold the Lombardi Trophy and a Super Bowl ring.

But in MMA, fighters participate in years of strict training and discipline, all for a chance to wear the championship belt. While there are many great fighters for this generation, we are entering into the new generation of fighting, and with it come new contenders.

Contained in the slides of this slideshow are 10 fighters who I think will wear a championship belt before the end of their careers. I guarantee you won't agree with all of these picks, especially number eight, but I can't please everyone.

Also, on a side note, you can't really say Shane Carwin and Nate Marquardt are apart of the next generation, so they aren't included. Now, on to the main event. Enjoy.
