    I made a thread yesterday about Raoni Barcelos but I'm just wondering if there are any other UFC prospects people are not talking about

    I must be missing something compared to the rest of Sherdog? Exciting figher? Hell yeah. Future title contender? Not sure about that chief.

    He's not the first to say it on Sherdog about Pereira if I'm honest haha.

    Really? I've said it in a half jokey kind of way but I can't say i've seen more than maybe 1 post saying he's a future champ... I've read a lot mocking his gimmicky style though.

    I believe he at least has the tools to beat Edwards he's still in his 20's so by the time he gets there I wouldn't be surprised if Usman is gone and Pereira hits like a truck

    He's still in his 20s and has over 30 fights. That mileage is going to catch up with him soon. Age and Fighting age are 2 very different things. He had a great record pre UFC but I wouldn't say he's been very inspiring in any fights bar his debut plus there's still some ? over his cardio after that Connolly fight aswelll for me.

    Also, Movsar Evloev looks kinda unbeatable with a slight cardio fix

    Shavkat Rakhmonov is fighting this week and he looks like an absolute beast at WW. I have no idea why he's fighting a 5'6 garden gnome at Welterweight though. He looks like he could already be top 15.

    He needs a fight booked ASAP. I think everyone is ducking him.
