With so many of the top featherweight fighters not in the same organization, it is difficult to give a fair assessment. Nevertheless, one guy who has shined as of late is Dustin Poirier. WIth a well rounded game and a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Tim Creuder, Poirier has proven to be one of the top featherweights. If you haven’t seen his submission victory over Max Holloway, go find it!

An excellent Bellator match-up to look forward to is Pat Curran vs Joe Warren. Curran is a solid striker who comes from a wrestling background, while Warren comes in with some of the best wrestling credentials in all of MMA. It should be an intriguing fight! Please Leave Comments!!!

    I wish there was a way to get all these guys to fight in one organisation to really test this list but i guess part of the fun is wondering what would happen.

    Ya that’s a good point Jon. Hopefully at some point they’ll get matched up with each other! I’m really interested to see how Hioki will fare against Bart P.

    What are your thoughts on the featherweight rankings now that Florian officially retired, Chan Sung Jung beat Dustin Poirier & Daniel Strauss beat Marlon Sandro?

      That’s a great question man. We were planning on updating these rankings. Yeah I think Jung and Strauss definitely deserve strong consideration… The Korean Zombie’s progression has been remarkable. To be honest I never thought he would be a title contender a couple years ago but he just keeps improving! I will have to do some thinking and get these rankings updated!
