Favorite local fighters not in the UFC?

So I was curious who your favorite local fighters are? I'm in Ohio always a big fan of -

Chris Lozano, Brian Rogers, Kevin Rothacker and "Big" John Hawk...

What say you Sherdog?

Just mostly the people i've trained/train with

I've trained with Gonzaga for a while so he's one of my fav HW's but he's in the ufc.
Raplh Johnson should have been after he beat Forrest petz at moosin but got screwed on the scorecards and it went kind of downhill from there. His ground game needs serious improvement but his striking is phenomenal. Lee Beane is good too, I believe he would have been in the ufc also if he didn't lose to morecraft. Luis "rockstar" felix is a pretty cool dude. Travis Lerchen/Reider is a pretty down to earth guy too, I cornered him before. his record on here is fucked though. it's really 14-17 but it's like 3-6 or some weird shit. He's been focusing more on competiting in Thia. he's a crossover guy, but very successful in his natural sport. Theres a lot of them actually.

Frankie Scalzo is really the only fighter in the area that I think has potential to do anything in MMA from the local shows I've seen in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. We have some really good boxers coming up though.

just saw Scalzo's record ... fun fact in 2010 Scalzo (means "Barefoot" in italian) beated Scarpone (means "Big shoe" or "Mountaineering boot").

There aren't really promotions that are active in my city so I'm more on following some local european fighter that to fight he has to travel all the continent ...
