Competing in Ultimate Fighting Championship is the goal of every man or woman who has ever dreamed of making a living in the sport of mixed martial arts.
In truth, most fighters never get a chance to even set foot inside the UFC's Octagon, and even fewer go on to become stars or even champions.
However, even those who are fortunate enough to make a name for themselves in the world's most recognized promotion must constantly evolve if they hope to stay on top. Of course, the shelf life of even the best fighters is relatively short, and few competitors are fortunate enough to go out on top.
With 2020 now upon us, there are several big-named UFC stars whose days with the promotion appear to be numbered. That being said, there are a variety of different reasons as to why these top-tier mixed martial artists' careers in the UFC appear to be coming to an end.
With that in mind, it's time to take a closer look at ten headlining acts who probably won't be fighting in the UFC by the time 2021 rolls around.
