But is it really? Flyweight: Henry Cejudo (31 years old); Demetrious Johnson (32 years old) Bantamweight: TJ Dillashaw (32 years old); Dominick Cruz (33 years old) Featherweight: Max Holloway (26 years old); Brian Ortega (27 years old) Lightweight: Khabib Nurmagomedov (29 years old); Conor McGregor (30 years old); Tony Ferguson (34 years old) Welterweight: Tyron Woodley (36 years old); Colby Covington (30 years old) Middleweight: Robert Whittaker (27 years old); Yoel Romero (41 years old) Light Heavyweight: Daniel Cormier (39 years old); Alexander Gustafsson (31 years old) Heavyweight: Daniel Cormier (39 years old); Stipe Miocic (36 years old) Outside of a few fighters, the majority of UFC Champions or #1 contenders are over 30 with the average age being 33. I think Dana might be wrong again. With all of that being said, which under-30 contender are you most excited about? - Darren Till (25 years old) - Kevin Lee (25 years old) - Paulo Costa (27 years old) - Zabit Magomedsharipov (27 years old) - Curtis Blaydes (27 years old) - Volkan Oezdemir (28 years old) - Renato Moicano (29 years old) - Israel Adesanya (29 years old) I think it's Darren Till. Sure, the guy is probably a natural Middleweight but I think he matches up well against Whittaker. The guy already has elite striking. His takedown defense is still relatively unknown but at 25, he has YEARS to work on his wrestling. My second choice would be Zabit Magomedsharipov. So far he looks as good as advertised but I am very curious to see how he fares against top-level competition. The under-30 contender that I am least high on is Kevin Lee. He's in a stacked division (honestly he'll eventually be forced to move up to Welterweight) and after seeing this, I am not sure he has the chin to stand and trade with the top of that division. What do you think Sherdog?
