    Wilson and Cirkunov both looked great in their debuts but did fight sub par competition, regardless I am excited to see how they both do in their future fights and hope they don't get matched up against each other.

    Know nothing about Abdul but glad to see a fresh face in the UFC.

    I hope Wilson, just because of his nickname

    Karlos Vemola, Czech dude, IIRC.

    Brick shithouse, dropped down to 185lbs and got cut after being tapped by Carmont I believe. Exciting fighter but really erratic and inconsistent, certainly not the worst we've seen.

    Edilov, Cirkunov and then Wilson in terms of who does the best.

    Edilov is only 23, incredibly battle tested for someone of that age. Great size and comes from the classic Sambo background. Incredibly powerful.

    Cirkunov is also very well rounded and has the potential to do very well but given he is a few years older I think Edilov's ceiling is a bit higher.

    I really hope Wilson does well, he's got great power and speed for a LHW but his grappling is fairly untested.

    Ideally, everyone would do well to give the division more depth

    Was very impressed from what I've seen of Cirkunov, so I'm gonna say him. Wilson also looked sharp in his debut, never seen Edilov so can't comment on him.

    Yeah, Vemola really wasn't/isn't that bad at all. Quite a shame, since his UFC release he was riding a 7 fight win streak, 5 by submission but then ran into Jack Hermansson who ended it.

    I feel Krylov deserves a solid mention on this thread. As for those listed, Cirkunov I would say

    Interesting.

    I didn't realise he fought, and lost to, Hermansson.

    Jack washed out in Bellator but is really hitting some mean form nowadays, I see him UFC-bound soon.

    100% agree. Was lackluster in Bellator but hit form in Cage Warriors with 4 wins and then his 5th win over Vemola, surely UFC bound soon.

    All that TS mentioned and this batch as well. Hell, sign 15 more LHWs! Ideally under 28 or 30 at least.

    I think Misha is gonna end up like that one cross eyed dude. They tried to promote him as a 4 time wrestling champ and it turned out it was all junior wrestling lol.

    Krylov is certainly someone who could break into the top ten. Just needs more experience.

    Past performance is usually a good indicator of future success.
