10. Alexander Hernandez Vs. Thiago Moises - UFC Fight Night 186

With so many talent-rich divisions inside the UFC, it can often beg the question "Which weight class is the most stacked?". Although some come close, it's pretty obvious that the best of the bunch of the bunch is the lightweight division.

A perfect example of that is this fight here. Although neither Alexander Hernandez or Thiago Moises are in the UFC's top-15 rankings, this is an exceptional fight between two extremely versatile 155lber's. This is a battle to see who can break into the elite of weight class and that's truly exciting.

Hernandez has a brilliant combination of aggression and technique that has made him somewhat of a bully inside the Octagon. He's had a few lows, specifically the knockout losses to Donald Cerrone and Drew Dober, but returned to the cage with an outstanding KO finish over Chris Gruetzemacher last October.

Ever since making his debut on Dana White's Contender Series, Thiago Moises has continued to improve his overall game. Much like his opponent, he's had some losses, but with wins over Michael Johnson and Bobby Green in his last two bouts, it's clear that he's on the rise.
