    He is one of the top prospects in the FW and has all the skills to become a future champion. Thoughts?

    I also like him and think he has a very high ceiling.

    He's a highly touted prospect. Chas Skelly is more of a dark horse imo.

    Anyone who knew Bektic before the ufc knows how much of a stud prospect he is

    The UFC is building him up by giving him easy fights, and he is cocky as hell so yeah they will try to make it last and make some money. Eastern European/Muslim background so he'll be marketable in various countries.

    No they aren't. His UFC debut was against undefeated Chas Skelly and he was even matched up against Max Holloway at one point. Now he is fighting Jim Alers who was a Cage Warriors champion. Those aren't easy fights for a 23 year old prospect with less than ten fights under his belt.

    Yeah it's definitely nothing resembling prospect building fights. Dude's getting top guys.

    He is well rounded. Impressed me by beating chas the way he did. Also dominated him on the ground and chas trains at team takedown with hendricks.
    He is great prospect

    He's fighting Paul Redmond now but your point still stands.
