This was a really strong year for debuts
Khabib Nurmagomedov, Fabricio Werdum(maybe), Jamie Varner (maybe), Glover Teixeira, Francisco Trinaldo, John Lineker, Abel Trujillo, Jimi Manuwa, Gunnar Nelson, Siyar Bahadurzada, Stephen Thompson and Rustam Khabilov.
If you ask me to rank the top ten and we'll asterisk Werdum I would go
10.) Francisco Trinaldo
09.) Stephen Thompson
08.) Jimi Manuwa
07.) Abel Trujillo
06.) John Lineker
05.) Gunnar Nelson
04.) Khabib Nurmagomedov
03.) Rustam Khabilov
**.) Fabricio Werdum
02.) Glover Teixeira
**.) Jamie Varner
01.) Siyar Bahadurzada
Rustam Stephen and Gunnar were impressive but they were against punching bags. Varner and Werdum were very impressive but they were redebuts. Glover's had the biggest effect on rankings. Lineker lost but it was FOTY in my eyes. In the end I would give the nod to Siyar for just knocking the holy hell out of Paulo Thiago. It was the first and only time Paulo's been finished and it was devastating.
+Rep for being a very good topic.
Make the WW division great again
