Welterweight always provides you with a mixed bag of fighters. Ranging anywhere from 5’8” to 6’5”, all of their body styles are different. Welterweight seems to be the most well rounded division, as in not one technique or practice dominates. Rather amusing when you think about Matt Hughes holding down the division with his wrestling for so many years. Every fighter on this list is skilled throughout the cage and can be one of MMA’s next big superstars.
