The UFC has over 550 fighters on its roster, but only a handful of them (approximately less than 3 percent) are currently undefeated.

A few top prospects inside the UFC have lost their “unbeaten” record in the past six months, the likes of Alexa Grasso, Mirsad Bektic, Mike Perry and Renato Carneiro all had their ‘0s’ wiped out, but we still have some good names to put in our MMAUno.com’s “UFC’s Top 5 Unbeaten Fighters”.

5. Paulo Borrachinha

Record: 10-0
Last Fight: UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway | June 3, 2017
Result: def. Oluwale Bamgbose | TKO (punches) 1:06 R2
Next Fight: vs. Johny Hendricks | UFC 217 | Nov. 04, 2017

In his first nine fights, Paulo “Borrachinha” Costa has never had to fight more than five minutes. His shortest outing was just 32 seconds, and in his UFC debut, just five months ago, he needed just 77-seconds to pummel Garreth McLellan into an early evening.

Taking a hard challenge in his second fight under the UFC banner, Borrachinha went to the second round for the first time in his career. Either way, he knocked his opponent out.

This middleweight is a beast, a savage. He’s like a combination of Erick Silva versatility and Yoel Romero’s power and instincts. He’s truly one of the top 5 prospects inside the Octagon and sure, he’s got a spot inside this top 5.

4. Brian Ortega

Record: 12-0
Last Fight: UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones 2 | July 29, 2017
Result: def. Renato Carneiro | Submission (Guillotine Choke) 2:59 R3
Next Fight: None Scheduled

Brian Ortega is on fire. The well known Gracie JiuJitsu black belt came to the UFC unbeaten and has stayed that way in five fights inside the octagon. He has surpassed all his challenges, dispatching the likes of Diego Brandao, Clay Guida and Renato “Moicano” Carneiro.

“T-City” gave Moicano the first loss of his career, winning “The battle of the unbeaten” in July and putting the undefeated fighters list one shorter.

3. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Record: 24-0
Last Fight: UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor | November 12, 2016
Result: def. Michael Johnson — Submission (Kimura) 2:31 R3
Next Fight: None Scheduled

Khabib Nurmagomedov is currently ranked #1 in the UFC’s Lightweight division. The “Eagle” has been growing hype and W’s piling up a 24-0 record with 8-0 inside the Octagon. Given Nurmagomedov’s injuries, he hasn’t been able to stay active and keep momentum going, but one thing is for sure, he’s a sure fire bet to challenge for the 155-pounds title one day.

Nurmagomedov currently holds the longest undefeated record in the UFC, but he lands in the third spot given that the others have obtained greater status with their unbeaten records.

2. Cody Garbrandt

Record: 11-0
Last Fight: UFC 207: Nunes vs. Rousey | December 30, 2016
Result: def. Dominick Cruz | Unanimous Decision
Next Fight: vs. T.J. Dillashaw | UFC 217 | Nov. 04, 2017

Cody Garbrandt is the reigning UFC Bantamweight Champion. He won the title after becoming only the second fighter in history to defeat Dominick Cruz (at UFC 207), handing him his first defeat in almost a decade. He is ranked #6 in the UFC’s Pound for Pound rankings.

He’s got heavy hands, great cardio, and excellent footwork. Since he entered the promotion he immediately called the attention of the fans and of course, Dana White. Now he awaits maybe the greatest challenge of his young career so far when he faces T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 217.

1. Joanna Jedrzejczyk

Record: 14-0
Last Fight: UFC 211 – Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2 | May 8, 2017
Result: def. Jessica Andrade | Unanimous Decision
Next Fight: None Scheduled

She’s without a doubt the UFC women’s division biggest star right now since Ronda Rousey departure. The UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, is ranked #8 in the UFC’s Pound For Pound list and has defended her title five times in two years, only one defense behind Rousey’s all time record.

The Pole currently rides an eight win streak in the UFC and she’s expected to fight Rose Namajunas next for the title. It should be a barnburner.
