    Might be a bit early, but Eric Silva.

    I agree with Francis and Kevin Lee, but instead of Colby I'd go with T-City.

    All 3 of those guys broke out in 2017

    For me, Zabit, Mairbek Taisumov, and Curtis Blaydes

    I think Stephen Thompson is gonna finally find his footing on the big stage, maybe claim the strap by the end of the year.

    I could see Rose Namajunes doing big things too.

    And Darren Till is looking awesome!

    all 3 of them fought a top 3 fighter in their division, and then became more famous after the fight than before.

    there's not much wiggle room between that and being a champ. does a guy have to be a champion for you to define them as 'breakout'?

    So, we have

    A guy with one of the most bland boring personalities in UFC, he makes Luke interesting

    A guy with a dumb trying-way-too-hard speech, who gets bullied by HWs

    A guy with "you know, like, I might, you know, if conor like wants to you know I will you know cause like you know"


    Yep, they all have something Conor has.

    I can see it happen!


    Man, I don't know what to say.
    Sure, he is very young and has a whole career in front of him
    Yes, he is undefeated
    Yes, he has this amazing winning streak against those well ranked guys
    Yes, he never went to a decision, he finished all of his opponents
    Probably the only steroid clean fighter in UFC
    But, I don't know if 2018 will be his year

    Neither sounds good at all! How about a rear NAKED choke from Miesha Tate? Yeah, that sounds better.
