With Georges St-Pierre laying waste to a laundry list of contenders, there is a misguided perception that the UFC welterweight division is thinning.

The 170-pound division remains one of the most stacked in the sport, and there are a plethora of rising contenders looking to cement their place in the spotlight.

UFC welterweight Jake Ellenberger may be the best example.

He is riding a three-fight win streak over solid opposition like John Howard, Mike Pyle, and Carlos Eduardo Rocha. In his UFC debut, Ellenberger lost a split decision to welterweight contender Carlos Condit.

The bout still served as a moral victory for Ellenberger, who controlled the action and nearly stopped the former WEC champion.

The UFC welterweight division is loaded with so much talent that guys like Ellenberger are continuously swept under the rug.

This article attempts to pay homage to such talent. Ellenberger aside, here are 10 of the UFC's most overlooked welterweights.
