    I don't know if Jones-Bader counts? They were more than prospects when they fought, but they also weren't clear contenders.

    Nah, I don't think so. Bader after beating Jardine and especially Nogueira (despite a bit of controversy at the time) was ranked pretty highly. Probably fringe Top-5 at the time, and Jones was Top-10 too. They were closer to contenders than prospects.

    Gustafsson-Davis was a LHW prospect match-up.

    That doesn't, but TS's list is amazing. That's where the bar is set now. I got nothing on that level

    Hendricks-Story
    Benson-Cerrone 1 - both guys had only been pro fighters for about 3 years before this fight
    Borg-Ortiz
    Holloway-Bermudez
    Souza vs Eddiva
    Kang vs Tanaka - After 7 years and 20 fights, I not sure Kang counted as a prospect anymore though.
    Rodriguez-Rosa
    Lineker-Gaudinot
    Lineker-Alp - Not sure if Lineker counted as a prospect at this point but this was definitely his step up point.

    Some gud mentions here, but also a couple head scratchers like Tavares who is nowhere near a prospect at this point.

    High altitude
    Taisumov vs Christodoulou
    Hester vs Whittaker
    Bektic vs Martins

    The upcoming prospect fight I'm looking most forward to is Jouban vs Tumenov.
