UFC has undoubtedly grown to quite the epic scale over the last two decades. Now, instead of only boasting a few superstar names (à la Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz and Randy Couture) the company showcases a whole host of stars which even the most casual of fans will admit to knowing.
Almost every division now flaunts a diverse selection of engaging contenders, which regularly excite both people at home and the lucky audience inside of the arena.
However, that doesn't mean that every fighter that should be under the spotlight necessarily is.
With such a vast array of talented athletes on his books, Dana White obviously cannot fit every single fighter into the spot on the card which they deserve and therefore - if they aren't exactly on the same level of stardom as say a Conor McGregor or Amanda Nunes - these dark horses tend to get lost in the shuffle.
But not for much longer.
Whether they're rising stars or battered veterans, each of these next ten warriors absolutely deserve to be thrust into a position of prominence in the near future. So, here's hoping this list goes some way to lighting the fuse of support they definitely warrant.
