Top Ten UFC Lightweight Strikers

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

Honorable Mention: Nate Diaz, Melvin Guillard, and Rafael Dos Anjos.
