UFC Undisputed 3 Roster: Lightweights

Posted October 13th, 2011 at 4:15 pm

The reveal of rosters for UFC Undisputed 3 continues today with the lightweights. Pointed out by many were a few notable names omitted from the light heavyweights yesterday. Despite having the largest roster to date for the franchise it appears to be due primarily to the two new weight classes rather than expanding across the board – in fact each individual weight class is shrinking in numbers. UFC 3 will feature 16 lightweights compared to 22 that were in UFC 2010.

Frankie Edgar tops the list as the current champion. Surprisingly guys like Joe Lauzon, Kenny Florian, and Nate Diaz are absent from the lightweight roster. Check out ESPN for more details and screenshots and continue on for the list of 16 to be included.
