Jorge Santiago is a fighter that doesn't get a ton of press but has slowly crept his way into the top 10 rankings. This guy has not only won 8 fights in a row but he's finished all of them - all against top level competition. His opponents in that span haven't been "elite" level fighters but they have all been tough and most are UFC or PRIDE veterans.
After a disapponting 1-2 run in the UFC Santiago has picked up his game considerably and the results are paying off. He entered the Strikeforce four man tournament and came out on top - finishing both opponents. Then he entered the Sengoku MWGP and acheived the same result. No one in the middleweight division is on the roll that this guy has been on - except for a man by the name of Anderson Silva.LINK
