Jose Aldo has set the standard at 145 pounds but the featherweight division isn't without hope now that it's part of the UFC. There are no financial limitations when it comes to bringing in talent from outside the organization and now the UFC has little more ammo to work with when pitching its smaller lightweights that it may be time to drop a weight class.
Top candidates to bolster the 145-pound roster
1. Clay Guida
2. Jim Miller
3. Joe Stevenson
4. Mark Bocek
5. Cole Miller
Others with UFC and outside the promotion: Matt Wiman, Mac Danzig, Nik Lentz, Efrain Escudero, Marlon Sandro.
