10 Best Fighters Outside the UFC
#10 : Daniel Straus
Daniel Straus leads off my list of the 10 best fighters outside the UFC. The former Bellator Featherweight champion has gone 18-2 over the last 5 years with his only two losses coming to fellow Top 10 talents Pat Curran and Patricio Freire. Straus’ grinding style was a tough sell for some fans, but following his 2013 win over Curran, the MMA world started to take notice. Straus recently lost his title to Curran, but he’s earned another chance at gold once the dust settles from Curran-Freire II.
