The UFC's welterweight division is a talent-rich collective where the battle to claim elite-level status never slows. Once a position in the divisional upper-tier at 170 is solidified, a fighter moves within striking distance of a potential championship opportunity. Yet, with a shark tank of talent in the welterweight depths, fortunes can change in an instant, and a fighter can go from contention to fighting for relevancy in quick fashion.
