    3 awesome prospects that are coming up through the smaller circuits that I think will be landing in the UFC in no time. Who are you guys most impressed with? Who do you think would have the best chance of being a contender in their respective weight classes?

    Galore Bofando - Welterweight
    http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Galore-Bofando-59466 (notice the only losses on his record are DQ's from illegal knees)

    Michael Page - Welterweight

    Conor McGregor - Lightweight

    Props to Layzie and Middleeasy for the exposure.

    McGregor.

    Page hasnt been tested yet and is fighting for Bellator in Feb.

    Not really impressed b Bofando although he KO at UCMMA 28 was sick.

    There are many prospects out there that should be in the UFC over these.

    Conor McGregor looked good on the weekend. He's ready for a step up now, so maybe one big challenge before he gets onto a UFC card.

    Clearly has skills, but a solid (maybe ex UFC fighter or a high level Scorefight level guy) would be a good challenge for him

    Page is a fighter I would love to see in the UFC, a very creative and unique fighter.

    Controversial fighter enough to sell a lot of PPV's.

    Had no idea that MVP was signed with Bellator. That's sick. Pretty Classic Striker vs Wrestler match against Shawn Bunch would have been nice. It'd be good to see how he handles that. I wonder who they put him up against.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing Sergio too. He's a little best.

    Anyone else have any prospects you're looking forward to seeing step into the Octagon? Linking up a fight/highlight video and fightfinder link would be sick...

    Since they are all from the UK, none of them. They never pan out.

    Page will be a star... no doubt about it. Not ready for the UFC yet, but he'll get there.

    I made this Koreshkov highlight 10 months ago and he's gone 5-0 in Bellator in 2012, only the second fighter in history to do so. 22 years old, well rounded and the biggest prospect in the sport (if he can still be considered one.)



    My latest highlight is Andre Fili, 22 years old out of Alpha Male, he'll be in the UFC within 6 months.



    I made this Rose Namajunas highlight a year ago, she makes her pro debut at Invicta tomorrow. Hands down the biggest prospect in WMMA.






    Theres loads of prospects out there. My Boss just came back to his desk so i will post some names when he goes.

    Molesky, I've got 2 things to say to you my man.

    #1 - Those are 3 awesome prospects that I've never heard of. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for all of them. I was especially impressed with Rose, because I rarely see a girl that I'm convinced could whoop my ass. I think she might have me. Furthermore, I think I might enjoy it.

    #2 - Those were some great highlight videos. Seriously quality stuff. Enjoyed every second of them. The Chill/Ambient wobbles somehow mix so well with the warrior dance. Love it. Keep up the good work.

    Goiti Yamauchi is 19. 7-0 as an amatuer, 11-1 as pro. Had nothing back BJJ for a while but has really improved everywhere.

    http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Goiti-Yamauchi-48629

    Rick Glenn is 23, 15-1-1 as an amatuer, 12-2 as a pro. He'll be in the UFC within 6 months.

    http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Rick-Glenn-20171

    Aljamain Sterling is 23, 7-0, should be in the UFC now, will be very soon

    Cant be bothered to write any more about them

    Go and check out Andrey koreshkov as his last 3 fights aren't in there. His KO of Zaromskis was brutal.

    Thanks for the kind words. My Channel has others so check them out. Rose is a beast - future GOAT.

    Darrion Caldwell is another guy that just popped in my head, so did Anthony Avila
