The‘s Bantamweight champ showed the world why he is #1 with a lopsided win over Scott Jorgensen. Unfortunately the champ severely injured his hand in the bout and has not fought since. Urijah Faber and Miguel Torres have both made some big strides in the division and are both determined to get the next shot at the title. This list was put together by our friends over at RantMMA.com. Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments section.
No.10 Masakatsu Ueda
The former Shooto champion rebounded from an upset loss to start his climb back to the title.
No.9 Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson
Johnson picked up an upset win over the ranked Damacio Page to enter the top 10.
No.8 Brad “One Punch” Pickett
Pickett lost a #1 contenders match, but is still established as a top talent at 135, having won his previous 9 fights.
No.7 Takeya Mizugaki
The tough as nails Mizugaki slips, but only a little. Getting beat by the man who used to rule 145 doesn’t drop your stock too much.
No.6 Miguel Torres
The old poster boy of the bantamweight division got back in the swing of things with a win over Charlie Valencia.
