    Hi guys. Here is Part 7 of my 2015 unbeaten unsigned prospects - The Flyweight Division!

    A quick reminder of the rules as always:

    1) They must be undefeated!
    2) They must NOT be signed to any of the three largest promotions (UFC, Bellator & WSOF)
    3) They must have fought at least once in 2014
    4) They must have had at least 3 professional fights


    Today is the time for the Flyweight division. I probably noticed the biggest difference in this division compared to last year - Last year I remember struggling to find 30 guys, but this year it was easy to pick 35, and I had to leave out some decent prospects! Those just missed out on the top 35 include Tulio Vasconcelos (5-0), Flavio De Queiroz (3-0), Keoma De Paula (4-0), Matheus Silva (5-0), Eduardo Pereira (4-0), Eric Dos Santos (4-0) & Tim Riscen (4-0)

    Guys ineligible due to inactivity included Allamurad Karayev (9-0), Elielton Fernandes (8-0), Chris Miah (5-0), Fernando Luiz Silva (5-0) & Sok Veasna (4-0).

    As always i'd be interested to hear everyone's opinions on this list, both good and bad!. Also if anyone can suggest fighters that I missed out or any ages of the fighters which I couldn't find it would be appreciated.

    Enjoy Part 7!

    Think Akhmetov will have more success in UFC than Pitbull because of his wrestling base?

    It wouldn't surprise me if he does, but I just feel Menga is more well rounded. I think both guys will be top 10 UFC flyweights in 4 years though.
