    Evil Fedor comes to mind. Would definitely cause problems to some of the top15 HW (like Lewis). Just 37 years old. Can't remember names but would go through ABC and KSW champs.

    He's getting ready to go for 2 belts, moving up to HW to fight Phil De Fries. Phil is another guy who could probably come back to the UFC and do some damage now that he's got his mind right.

    10 of the world's top-20 real strawweights aren't affiliated with those orgs, including #1-ranked Haruo Ochi (his last fight was in RIZIN, but it looks like that was a one-off and his next is a title-defense in DEEP). 8 of those 10 won their last fight with a finish, too.
    Here's Hiroba (silver hair) winning the 2018 Shooto Infinity League tournament:



    And here's an old highlight of Sarumaru getting a bunch of knockouts:



    FW Yohei Sakamoto trains out of Tatsuya Kawajiri's gym and is 14-3 with 10 knockouts, a two-divisional Grachan champion (LW & FW), and is ranked 3rd or 4th in Shooto. He might be the next challenger for Shooto champ Yutaka Saito; the winner will probably be in 1 or RIZIN shortly after.

    Former 5th-ranked FLW Kiyotaka Shimizu is 6-1 (the loss against ONE champ Yosuke Saruta) with four knockouts, 3 in the 1st, over his last 7 fights, on a three-fight winning streak, and is gonna be fighting Hiromasa Ogikubo for the Shooto championship soon. He might pull off the upset, too.

    Tilek Zheenbekov is a 6'6, 5-2 HW from central-Asia. And Ross Houston is the 8-0 Cage Warriors WW champion, so you may hear something from him soon.
    Stephen Loman is an American-Filipino BW training out of Team Lakay with a 12-2 record, on a 6-fight winning streak, the BRAVE CF champion, and is coming off a win over Felipe Efrain (remember that guy that KO'd Yuki Motoya a couple years ago?)
    Another good BW is Rustam Kerimov, the ACA champion. Just about any high-level guy in ACA/ACB is a strong UFC-level fighter.
    Roman Kopylov is the FNG MW champion. Here's him beating former M-1 Global WW champion and skilled kickboxer Yasubey Enomoto with a body-shot to win the title:



    Alexander Shlemenko's a free agent now...
