I feel like the sport is in another one of those transition periods where a lot of fighters are getting to the point when it's almost time to call it a career and some others are hanging around longer due to some talent deficits. So who would you say are the top fighters under 30 in each weight class? I confess to a lot of the younger fighters being off my radar. Max Holloway is the only one that comes to mind.

I was going to say Rory MacDonald, but I just checked and he actually just turned 30 last month... and in 'fight years' he's gotta be pushing 60, at least!


I'd rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies.

I think because he sometimes fights like a moron he's already hit his cieling but Cody Garbrandt is young and top 10ish.
She needs to get her weight in check but Aspen Ladd is young as hell.
Max is obvious.
Kevin Lee needs to figure out his weight class but he's young as fuck with a lot of raw potential.
Luque is 27/28ish.

There's a ton of others that are in the "up and coming" category but haven't quite hit the top yet.
