For me the most obvious choice is Jared Rosholt due to his wrestling pedigree, he's a bit rough around the edges but I think in 2-3 years time he will have developed into a full-fledged heavyweight contender, if not top 10 definitely top 15.
Yeah his brother just did phenomenal in the UFC and Jared has much more discipline when it comes to conditioning

What does that have to do with anything? He isn't his brother, and thus far he's 1-0 in the UFC and will likely move to 2-0 this weekend in one of the more shallow divisions. He's a good prospect however you look at it. Not to mention that cardio doesn't mean as much at heavyweight as it does in other divisions.

You're all wrong it's Ruan Potts! He's a genetically superior African!

Potts actually has some skills, too bad he didn't start MMA when he was younger. the videos of his fights on youtube don't really do him justice, he's improved a lot since those fights have taken place. I watched his last fight live, and he looked very impressive. Now it remains to be seen if he can have success against guys in the UFC, but I like what have seen out of him in the last year or so.
