    Are guys like Volkov and Ortega really prospects? Till and Rivera are also a bit questionable, to me a prospect is someone who hasn't beaten an established elite fighter yet.

    Ortega's the number 1 conteder, not really a prospect.

    If that's how we were doing it, you could just reel off every number 1 contender as the top prospects.

    Hell of a fighter though

    how highly ranked/ how many fights does one have to have before they are past prospect?
    Usman, Volkov, Santi, and Ortega are all past that point imo.

    Assuming that "contenders" don't count as "prospects", and trying my best to differentiate between the two categories, I'd mention:

    Women's bantamweight: Aspen Ladd
    Women's flyweight: Andrea Lee
    Women's strawweight: Tatiana Suarez

    You aren't a prospect once you're making your mark in the big leagues. I'd say Till has arrived and is no longer a prospect.

    2 guys with all the tools to rise really fast.

    This is fun. Imo

    5. Tai Tuivasa: This dude puts on entertaining fights, what more is there to say? Its amazing to watch such a big guy explode like that.

    4. Dominick Reyes: I have high hopes for this guy. LHW needs some new blood, and he's very promising, mega finisher.

    3. Israel Adensaya: Former kickboxer, amazing shot selection, patience, distance, timing. This guy can be special, really looking forward to his development. He'd be my #1 if he were more well rounded.

    2. Gregor Gillespie: Don't really know what to say about the guy other than he's really rally good, and he doesn't know how to lose.

    1. ZABIT! : This man is the future, such an amazing talent. Must watch TV.
