The UFC’s featherweight division consistently has been one of its strongest.

That didn’t change when Ilia Topuria beat Alexander Volkanovski to win the title. But even though there was new blood at the top, and new blood coming up at the prospect level like Diego Lopes, there seems to be a standstill in the division.

Volkanovski doesn’t plan on fighting again at 145 unless it’s for the belt. Topuria seems to want to wait to fight in Spain, or at the very least thinks former champ Max Holloway earned a shot with his BMF win … at lightweight.

So how do we make sense of things in perhaps the strongest division in the UFC, but the one with so little potential for movement up top in the near future?

MMA Junkie’s Brian “Goze” Garcia, Matthew Wells and Nolan King break it down with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia. Watch their discussion in the video above, and don’t miss this week’s complete episode of “Spinning Back Clique” below on YouTube or in podcast form.
