UFC 165 Fighters on the Chopping Block

The lineup for UFC 165 features two title-bouts, a couple of top contenders, and a number of fighters who have only tasted defeat a single time. However, that’s not to say every athlete taking to the Octagon on September 21 can depend on having a job in the UFC come October based on how things unfold in Toronto. In fact, a few are even in “must win” situations. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
