    Hi guys. Here is Part 8 of my 2015 unbeaten unsigned prospects - The Light Heavyweight 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 Light Heavyweight division.As with the heavyweight division, the LHW's are severley lacking in prospects, which is why there is only 30 guys listed and not 35. Those just missed out on the top 30 include Felipe De Oliveira (Due to losing on TUF Brazil 3), Evgeniy Fedotov (3-0), Milan Graefe (3-0), Lukasz Kapsa (3-0), Mark Tanios (3-0) & Frank Waisten Jr (3-0).

    Guys ineligible due to inactivity included Klidson Farias De Abreu (6-0), Joao Victor Jaiden (6-0), Allan Benavidez (4-0), Steven Cnudde (4-0), Tommy Richardson (4-0), Sami Antar (3-0), Herve Hunlede (3-0), Antti Kastama (3-0) & Andrey Kiryuhin (3-0).

    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 8!

    LHW and HW are both so so shallow outside of the UFC.
