As the number one mixed martial arts promotion in the world, the UFC is the gold standard for ultimate fighting. The biggest names within mixed martial arts have competed under the UFC banner.
Iconic figures like Royce Gracie, Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Georges St. Pierre, and Matt Hughes (and the list goes on and on) have proudly represented the UFC worldwide.
With the explosion of MMA here in the States over the past few years, there are still a number of very deserving fighters who are not signed to a UFC contract. These fighters are all very skilled and have the reputation of leaving it all out on the line when they step foot in the cage.
Whatever the reason for their absence, whether contractual disputes or personality clashes, these fighters will bring value to the UFC and provide entertainment for the fans regardless.
Here is my list of the 10 fighters whose reputation and fight game is deserving of a UFC contract. I look forward to your comments.
