    Such a sick fight. Wish it was in the UFC, but still. Dunno who to pick here, this is as legit a HW fight as Rizin could put on - two seriously legit and relevant prospects battling it out. Great little scrap. I'll go for Delija, but I aint convinced.

    Another cool fight. I hope Parry wins coz Stav has been floating around for about 10yrs without making the final step.

    Has there been any news on Bilyal Makhov? Is he ever going to fight?

    Just call me Mystic Paul I guess. But that's Chi's MO, he just can't have a normal fight. He's lucky he didn't get DQ'd since BAMMA has DQ'd guys for that exact thing before (Tom Aspinall).

    Mind you, I called Zaur and Vanderaa's fights wrong, I thought they would both get easy wins. We'll see how Lane does tonight.

    He was raising his family and considering a 2020 Olympics run last time I heard. Although he has said on and off that he wants to fight in the UFC, but I haven't heard anything concrete yet.

    I wonder if we're going to have to wait till September to see Goltsov Ufc debut. Ufc Russia is that month

    found a local prospect playing around in the who beat who of my regions mma scene since a few cards are coming up
    6'5" but 230, so maybe a LHW in the end

    Yeah, I'm guessing he'll do 205. He's 32, so hopefully we'll see him win a big fight or two and get into a top promotion.

    Josh Parisian (5-2) is making his LFA debut in April. No opponent has been announced as of yet but I know he's been working hard on his conditioning and wrestling since dropping his last fight against Tony Lopez last April. He's done a lot of training with UFC fighter Daniel Spitz recently, with Spitz coming to Michigan or Parisian going to Washington. They've been good training partners for one another.

    Brett Martin (4-0) will fight Ruben Esparza (2-1) for the KOP Heavyweight Championship. Brett has had a hard time getting opponents in the region and Esparza stepped up to the plate.

    Hey PaulL, have you ever considered doing this same thread but with LHWs?

    Someone did for a while, I started creating one for MW's and gave up quickly - it really showed me how much effort Paul puts into this shit, really hard to keep on top of!

    Brett may look sloppy, but he's decent. I feel like he could be a Roy Nelson type, except more on the wrestling less on the striking. I don't see an issue with him going 7-0 or so before getting his competition level up, he can use the time to get in better shape and refine his game. Once he hits about 7-0 or 8-0 he'd be ready for LFA or DWCS.

    I have LHW and MW fully scouted out, but it takes a ton of time to do these threads and keep them updated weekly. I still have a ton of guys to write profiles about on this thread alone, which I'm slowly getting at. It likely won't be possible with my other MMA commitments to do these threads for other weight classes, though I always encourage others to do their own, including borrowing anything they need from my posts.

    Yessir, primarily in heavier divisions where guys get signed quickly like MW, LHW, and HW. The lists change so dynamically and keeping up with the prospect pool worldwide, not just regionally, both professional and amateur, is super difficult.

    your telling me, ufc alone had 5 undefeated FLW fighters earlier this year but most of them have been crushed into davidson's run

    big weightclasses need fighters, so it's fun to scout them. only other annoyance is sport-jumpers with various combat arts, especially the basically mma ones that should count as mma fights like combat sambo, shoot-boxing, vale tudo and sport pankration. there is plenty of weird mma out there (rules, combat zones etc) , why can't these other basically mm fights count as mma.

    Paul L if you've never watched him you should keep your eye out for Trevor Wallace. He's a 3-0 Amateur Heavyweight (although only recorded as 2-0 on Tapology) and he just defended his Summit FC Amateur HW Title a couple weeks back. He's 6'5" and and a good sized Heavyweight. I don't know what his cardio is like but he looks athletic and hes been beating competent veteran amateurs in his recent fights. They're hyping him up as "Lesnaresque" but that's probably just in physique. Don't know his background.



    You can find his recent fight here. His fight starts at the 1:52 mark.

    His striking actually looked pretty good in that fight. Much better than I would expect from an amateur heavyweight at least.

    Can't wait for it. Better prospects than most UFC prospects. UFC could sign at least 10 guys from non-American promotions that would be better than anybody outside of their top 10.

    I have him on my list, he has a Muay Thai background, good striker obviously. I wouldn't invest too much in his cardio, but he has potential. As long as he doesn't rush things and finds himself a high level gym to work out of, he has the potential to hit a big org. He reminds me a lot of Tai Tuivasa in his earlier years actually.

    Tony Lopez seems to fight 2 or 3 times a month. How old is he? 40?
