MMA Top 10 Featherweights: 'The WEC Title Is the Title for 145-Pounders'

Above, Leonard Garcia discusses his World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight title fight against Mike Brown at WEC 39. Garcia says, "The WEC title is the title for 145-pounders," and I think he's right. Although the upcoming Dream featherweight tournament will be interesting, the two best 145-pound fights this year are likely to be Garcia vs. Brown on March 1 and the winner of that fight vs. Urijah Faber in the summer.

My full MMA featherweight rankings are below.
