    My pick is Oskar Piechota. High level BJJ black belt (beat Magalhaes in no-gi competition) with devastating striking.

    Here he is disposing of Tim Williams.

    Paulo Costa, think a wrestler will kill his hype soon and then he'll bounce back.

    Unless that wrestler is USADA, I hope he sure's up on the TDD, he's got savage pocket striking.

    I think Shoeface is the best of those listed right now.

    I like watching Adesanya a lot but I don't think he is going to be able to handle competent grapplers.

    Not sure if his TDD should be written off as good or bad, but his bjj is pretty good. I dont want the hype to die, cause I think he has a solid shot at breaking into the top 5.

    It was a joke on shoring up on USADA evasion techniques.

    Costa looks pretty scary but there's those obvious USADA questions. Do we count Gastelum as a prospect? He's definitely looking at a title shot pretty soon.

    Nah, he's been in the UFC for a long, long time and is a contender atm. Prospect label doesn't fit him anymore.
