Although there are many fighters in the UFC that have a bright future, this is my list of the fighters that the casual MMA fan may not have heard of but have been making some noise. They have not had the toughest fights as of yet, but have all performed in the Octagon and proved that they belong. I have tried to stay away from the already established fighters, but some on this list may find their way to the top before it is all said and done. Here they are, in order, the top ten UFC up and comers. Honorable Mention: Clint Hester, Sara McMann and Uriah Hall.
