UFC: Junior dos Santos, Urijah Faber and 5 Fighters Stuck in No Man's Land

Every UFC fighter steps into the Octagon with the hope of elevating themselves to a UFC title shot. But what happens when there's a major roadblock in the way?

That's the situation in which guys like Junior dos Santos and Urijah Faber find themselves. The end result of fighting is always to push up the rankings, but for these guys, there's only so far they can go. The fighters on this list find themselves in a bit of limbo in that they can defeat nearly every contender thrown their way, but UFC gold is just outside their grasp.

There's always hope for something drastic to change for them to be featured in another title fight, but that's unlikely to happen unless the current champion in their division falters.
