He holds the record for the most wins in the featherweight division and has defeated top contenders like Jose Aldo and Brian Ortega.

3. Conor McGregor

His charisma, knockout power, and precision striking made him a global superstar.

4. Frankie Edgar

Frankie Edgar's resilience and durability have made him one of the greatest featherweights in UFC history.

8. Brian Ortega

Brian Ortega's jiu-jitsu skills and finishing ability have made him a dangerous contender in the featherweight division. Ortega's undefeated streak and impressive victories over Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson put him on the radar as a top featherweight.
