Jorge Masvidal got his start fighting alongside Kimbo Slice on YouTube, but, unlike Kimbo, he has proved that he belongs. He gave Gilbert Melendez all he could handle in a Strikeforce title fight and is already 2-0 in the UFC. He is making a quick turnaround next weekend against Michael Chiesa, and should make a jump in the rankings if victorious. Mandatory Credit: Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It is tough to identify the best strikers because the division is so stacked right now, but here are who I think, in order, the best strikers in the UFC’s lightweight division. Honorable Mention: Nate Diaz, Melvin Guillard, and Rafael Dos Anjos.
