Last Saturday’s Bantamweight title fight between Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz highlighted some of the UFC's bright new talent.
With the acquisition of Strikeforce and the addition of the featherweight and Bantamweight divisions, the UFC’s depth of talent is at an all-time high.
The organization features seven weight divisions with quality contenders in each. Finding criteria to separate some of the top in the sport is no easy task, but here are some things to consider:
- Current win streak
- Quality of competition
- Number of stoppages
- Overall fight resume
- How they might fare in other weight classes
Here is a list of the top 10 pound for pound fighters in the UFC.
Incidentally, fighters who are not under contract with the UFC or fight under the Strikeforce banner are not included in this list.
