This thread is inspired by Paul L's "Unsigned Heavweights" thread. I will quote the opening from his thread as well as use his template to make things easier. 1. Stephan Puertz Height: 6'6" Weight: 205 Age: 27 Reach: N/A Rec: 12-1 M-1's shining star at 205, Stephan Puetz has a accomplished a great feat in a short amount of time. Starting his career with nine straight wins before a dubious decision loss to Joachim Christensen, Puetz rebound with a short notice upset title win over champion and fellow prospect Vitor Nemkov. He has since defended his title twice. Puetz uses straight punches and quick leg kicks on the feet, picking his opponents apart from the outside. The clinch is where he prefers to do his bidding though, throwing very strong knees. His ground game is quite a peculiar case. While his takedown defense leaves a lot to be desired, he has outstanding scrambles and reversals that lead him to dominant positions. 2. Maxim Grishin Height: 6'3" Weight: 205 Age: 30 Reach: 76.0" Rec: 18-6 Fighting the earlier part of his career at heavyweight, Grishin experienced mixed results. After faltering in his second M-1 title fight, he moved back down to 205 and has rattled off 6 straight wins (Including Joachim Christensen, Ray Lopez, Mario Miranda,Rodney Wallace, Trevor Prangley and a kickboxing win over Sokoudjou). Maxim brings a very technical kickboxing game, as well as strong sambo, much improved cardio, and takedown defense. 3. Viktor Nemkov Height: 6'1" Weight: 205 Age: 27 Reach: N/A Rec: 19-5 Despite being the most experienced fighter on this list, it's easy to forget Nemkov has yet to hit 30. He's been a mainstay in M-1 for most of his career, racking up an 11-4 record. He's well rounded in the standup department, but relies more on his speed more than knockout power. Holding gold in the 2011 Russian and World Sambo Championships, it's no surprise Nemkov excels at getting the fight to the ground where he likes to work ground and pound to set up his submissions. The one time M-1 champion holds notable wins over Chuck Grigsby, Abdul-Kerim Edilov, Gadzhimurad Antigulov, and Vasiliy Babich. 4. Tomasz Narkun Height: 6'3" Weight: 205 Age: 25 Reach: N/A Rec: 9-2The top light heavyweight prospect coming out of Poland, Tomasz Narkun started his MMA career in 2009. Fighting primarily in M-1 and KSW, he racked up 9 wins, losing only to Vyacheslav Vasilevsky by TKO and UFC vet Goran Reljic by dubious decision. Winner of the 2014 ADCC European championship and 2013 ADCC quarter finalist, Narkun is a grappler first and foremost, also earning all 9 of his wins by submission. While he is a little stuff and uncomfortable on the feet, he does possess some nice heavy low kicks. Narkun has good takedowns, mostly double legs or trips from the clinch. 5. Mikhail Mokhnatkin Height: 6'3" Weight: 205 Age: 25 Reach: N/A Rec: 6-1-1 A master of sport in sambo, Mikhail Mokhnatkin is another talented crossover athlete coming out of Russia. After a loss in his debut, he burst onto the scene with wins over Artur Astakhov and Valentijn Overeem in only five fights. On the feet Mokhnatkin has a great sense of distance, throwing a variety of kicks at range and counter punching with the hands when his opponent is pressuring. He's also shown the ability to stay composed and fire back under pressure. As soon as the clinch is initiated, the sambo champion immediately begins fishing for trips and throws. Now on a seven fight unbeaten streak, Mokhnatkin is on schedule to become a major player in the division in the following years. 6. Joachim Christensen Height: N/A Weight: 205 Age:23 Reach: N/A Rec:N/A To be profiled shortly. 7. Jiri Prochazka Height: 6'3" Weight: 205 Age:23 Reach: N/A Rec:14-2 To be profiled shortly. 8. Paul Craig Height: N/A Weight: 205 Age:N/A Reach: N/A Rec: N/A To be profiled shortly. 9. Jake Butler Height: 6'3" Weight: 205 Age: 32 Reach: N/A Rec: 5-1 Jake Butler gets his spot on this list based mostly on his potential. Debuting in 2013, Butler has spent his entire career fighting One FC, where he has collected a record of 5-1 avenging his only loss along the way. The former Princeton wrestling captain has great takedowns, whether it be straight shots in, clinch takedowns, or even slams if need be. As well as adapting very well to working on the cage. He also moves very well during scrambles, which allows his submissions and offensive ground striking to be put on display from varies dominant positions. While still very robotic and unrefined in the standup, working with the world class strikers at Evolve has definitely helped progress it. In a division that has the likes of Roger Gracie and James McSweeney, we might see Jake tested against some former UFC talent and in the running for the inaugural ONE light heavyweight title. 10. Gadzhimurad Antigulov Height: N/A Weight: 205 Age:N/A Reach: N/A Rec: N/A To be profiled shortly.
