“I want to be fighting more veterans like that because you can learn from them. I was hitting him with some clean shots. But because he’s (taken) so many shots, he knows how to ride the shots and close the distance, so you don’t land them clean. All kinds of stuff I haven’t really dealt with before, so I’d like to fight someone like him again.”

Aspinall end the year as a top 10 Heavyweight, Future contender in 2022. On the right track to be a real force for the rest of the Heavyweight division.

One Championship Future Stars

One Championship #1 Asian Promotion lost 100’s of millions of dollars in 2020 because of covid-19. No fans in attendance. However in 2021 and next five years with the young stars they have, They’ll be perfectly fine and take One Championship new heights.

Christian Lee

Christian Lee, MMA prodigy. One Championship Lightweight Champion. Reigning the Lightweight division at 22 years old.. Dominating his fights in stellar fashion. Scary to think Christian Lee is only 22 years old, Defeating world class fighters from Shinya Aoki and Iuri Lapicus.

Christian Lee and One Championship definitely will do GREAT business together. Future PPV Headliner vs Eddie Alvarez definitely will explode the brand of Christian Lee globally. Whose this kid from One Championship who defeated former UFC and Bellator Lightweight Champion?

Lee will be the face of One Championship for next decade, Pound for pound top 10 fighter in the world with significant wins from Eddie Alvarez, Timofey Nastyukhin, James Nakashima.

Angela Lee

Christian Lee’s older sibling and sister is a killer. One Championship Women’s Atomweight champion. 4 title defenses. Not the biggest finisher but wins fights in dominant fashion. Attempted and failed to fight in the strawweight division, Losing two fights.

However Angela Lee has some tough future matchups against Alyona Rassohyna who impressively defeated Stamp Fairtex(Multiple time Muay Thai Champion). Angela Lee vs Alyona Rassohyna is a sick Atomweight fight that will show how talented Angela Lee is.

Chatri Sityodtong, Matt Hume continues to sign Atomwieight prospects and stack the division. Future opponents for Angela Lee.

Angela Lee will be a star, Role Model and heroine to little girls all across Asia to become aspiring fighters. Following there dreams.

Troy Worthen

Troy Worthen One Championship Bantamweight prospect, University of Central Florida All-American Wrestler. 3-1 record with One Championship. Last fight was a loss to Yasup Saadulaev, Dagestan savage with a 19-8 record. More experience inside the ring will see Worthen defeat world class fighters from Leandro Issa, Rematch with Saadulaev.

One Championship needs young hungry lions from North America and Worthen gives the North American market. Bibiano Fernandes reigned over the Bantamweight division for a long time, Time for a fighter to take the throne and Worthen potentially can do that.

Only 27 years old, Prime of his athletic career. Looking forward to Worthen’s 2021 season. Returning back in full form.

Timofey Nastyukhin

Shocked the world defeating Eddie Alvarez in the first round. Placed him on the map. Returning from injury defeated underrated Lightweight Pieter Buist at One Championship Inside the Matrix. World class fighter trains with a bunch of killers at Tiger Muay Thai. 31 years old, Four more years of excellence from him before father time catches up.

One of the toughest future matchups for Christian Lee, Four time Pankration World Champion.

Stephen Loman

Finally, Extremely excited for One Championship to sign one of the best Bantamweights in the world. Stephen Loman #1 Brave CF fighter… Brave CF fighter of the year. Future #1 Fighter from the Philippines as he’s bout to murder the Bantamweights.

Wins over Frans Mlambo, Mark Abelrado, Gary Manga. Yes Loman is the real dude. Signing with One Championship at the right time, 29 years old. Coming in fully focused to dominate and earn life changing money. Becoming an Asian star and a God in the Phillipines.

Man I’m so excited for Loman to sign with One Championship, Makes complete sense.

Kiamrian Abbasov

One Championship Welterweight Champion WILL be the Khabib for One Championship mark my words. Extremely!! Impressed with his fighting style, Way he fights. Talented fighter. Something in the water in Russia, Caucuses because there breeding world class fighters… Champions.

23-4 record wins over Yushin Okami, LFA Champion James Nakashima. Won the title against Zebaztian Kadestman.

My opinion is one of the most underrated fighters on the planet, 2021 will see Abbasov name start to explode. Defeating rising welterweights and future signings, Making them look like they were nothing.

Bellator Signs Shabily #1 Russian Lightweight

Alexander Shabily #1 Russian Lightweight prospect at 27 years old. 19-3 record. Shabily is one of the best Lightweights in the world, All-Around world class fighter. Happy for Scott Coker and Bellator to sign Shabily, Adding talent to the Bellator Lightweight Division.

Shabily trains at American Top Team, Training partner with PFL Lightweight Champion Natan Schulte, Dustin Poirier and Jorge Masvidal. Managed by Ali Abdelaziz. Overall a great team around him.

Shabily last loss was in 2016, Ever since that loss been on a tear winning fights for Russian promotions ProFC, Fight Nights Global and ACA.

Bold statement to make but I compare Shabily to his teammate Dustin Poirier. In way there similar with there stand up fighting style, Counter striking. Looking for holes.

Bellator signed a world class fighter, Future Bellator Lightweight Champion.

Next generation of fighters to prosper from American Top Team.

Interested to see Shabily fights, Sidney Outlaw, Adam Piccolotti, Nate Andrews. These fights come to mind, Bellator debut on the prelims. Bellator commentators hyping up Shabily as one of the best Bellator signings.

Bellator Future Stars

Bellator rapidly growing on a yearly basis signing free agents from Gegard Mousasi, Ryan Bader, Rory MacDonald and prospects like Aaron Pico, AJ McKee, Yaroslav Amosov and many other prospects.

Bellator roster top to bottom is second best in the world. Filled with future Champions, future stars that will take Bellator to the next level.

World class talent, All-Around fighter. One of the best Featherweights in the world.

AJ McKee’s Bellator contract is expiring but Scott Coker needs to do whatever he can to sign McKee to a long term fight deal. Bellator has a star on there hands, Amount of sponsors McKee can attract for Bellator. Pay-Per View headliner with Showtime/Bellator.

Aaron Pico

Labeled “Lebron James of MMA” Aaron Pico is the next version of George St Pierre. MMA fans, MMA journalist were doubting his talents but now on a three fight winning streak defeating talented fighters.

Proof is in the pudding that this kid is a world class fighter, That Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant mentality when it comes to winning. Future Bellator Featherweight Champion. Reign the division if AJ Mckee decides to leave and sign with UFC.

Dope to see Aaron Pico do a podcast with Joe Rogan, Rogan picking Pico’s brain. Hearing the stories of Freddie Roach complimenting Pico’s boxing.

Yaroslav Amosov

Since Khabib retired the most impressive MMA record to date is Yaroslav Amosov 25-0 record. Yaroslav in the prime of his career at 27 years old, Next five years are going to be fascinating to watch. Watching one of the best Welterweights fight for Bellator.

Douglas Lima vs Yaroslav Amosov Bellator Welterweight Title Fight I hope happens in 2021. Be one of the best Welterweight fights on paper. Amosov defeats Lima that will radically sky rocket his brand and name.

Yaroslav Amosov is one of my favorite fighters right now and 2021 will see his career rise to the next level. Defeating world class fighters like Lima, Larkin, Koreshkov in his MMA career.

Vadim Nemkov

Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix begins in April of 2021. My favorite to win is Vadim Nemkov. Current Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion after defeating Ryan Bader in a masterful performance. Nemkov winning the Grand Prix will make him one of the biggest stars for Bellator.

Argument as the #1 Light Heavyweight in the world and Bellator has him. Next version of Fedor Emelianenko.

Usman Nurmagomedov

Usman Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s cousin is spoked highly of from Javier Mendez as the next Bellator superstar. One of the best fighters to come out of American Kickboxing Academy. Usman Nurmagomedov has a complete different fighting style compared to his cousin.

Usman is more of a Muay Thai fighter but constant pressure.

“Expect Usman to be the Luke Rockhold of Dagestan because the guy has got it all.”

https://www.insider.com/javier-mendez-on-new-generation-of-fighter-after-khabib-nurmagomedov-2020-10

Ludovit Klein rising star from Slovakia, Former Oktagon Featherweight Champion facing off against Georgian rising star, Ilia Topuria in a Featherweight prospect clash. Two future Featherweight title contenders who are fighting May 8th in Las Vegas!!

Exciting fight to watch as both are extremely talented fighters in the European scene, Watched by millions of people in Eastern Europe. Great opportunity for both fighters especially Ludovit Klein whose underrated in my opinion.

Ludovit Klein

Ludovit Klein caught my eye since knocking out City Kickboxing prospect Shane Young. Nickname is “Mr.Highlight” for a reason because of his early finishes. Leading him to becoming Oktagon Featherweight Champion, One of the best European Featherweight prospects in a long time. Now making his dream a reality fighting for the UFC.

Become a star overnight in Slovakia. Looking to aspire many other young children to become MMA fighters and to follow there dreams as well. Ludovit Klein is overlooked and underrated but the humble version of Conor McGregor will look to breakout in 2021 and a fight against Ilia Topuria will help him breakout in 2021.

“This experience has been great, Great moment.” Ludovit Klein

“That was the biggest dream in my life. I’m very happy,” Klein said in a virtual media scrum following the fight. “I have only good vibes.”

Klein fought many tough fighters in his Oktagon career but Ilia Topuria hasn’t fought the caliber of fighters Klein has. Underrated grappling and takedown defense from Klein can lead to the victory.

Klein has the stellar boxing as he was an Amateur Boxing Champion in Slovakia before fighting in MMA. Telling you guys Klein is a world beater and will see on May 8th against Ilia Topuria.

Topuria is a world class fighter, Well accomplished wrestler in Georgia but Klein can potentially get the win on May 8th. Taking advantage of the spotlight, Leading to a top ten year for Ludovit Klein.

Becoming one of my favorite fighters to watch because of his all-around skills, Will continue to see his improvements and Klein becoming a future UFC Featherweight Champion.

Topuria is a big test for Klein but get through Topuria and that sky rocket his way to the top of the UFC Featherweight Division.

BREAKOUT year for the humble Conor McGregor, Mr Highlight… Ludovit Klein. Will see it on full display on May 8th.

Leading Chimaev to be hospitalized in Las Vegas but looks to return in June. Hope everything goes as planned so we can see Chimaev fight because he seems to a special talent and Dana White knows it. Something different about the Chechen Wolf Khamzat Chimaev.

Return in June, Headlining a ESPN + Fight Night I’d love to see Khamzat Chimaev face Michael Chiesa. Chiesa since moving up to Welterweight was a life changing decision, Wins over Carlos Condit, Rafael Dos Anjos and Neil Magny. Welterweight dark horse. Facing Khamzat Chimaev as the UFC sees as the next superstar can radically help his career with a win on his third headliner.

“I enjoy fighting more than I enjoy anything else in the world,” Chiesa said. “I’m peaking at the right time,”

https://www.krem.com/article/sports/michael-chiesa-prepares-for-ufc-fight-night-bout-vs-neil-magny/293-c907a4b5-b61c-48c3-82ac-72726080eefc

“These guys should be worried,” Chiesa said. “The next time you see me this year I’m going to be a completely different guy. I’m going to be a totally different fighter. I’m going my to prove I can be the best. I’m going to prove I can be in a number one contender fight by the end of the year.”

Opportunity to be a Welterweight title contender with a GREAT win against Chimaev

On the other hand Khamzat Chimaev with a win against the Dark Horse Michael Chiesa can lead to a title shot. Showing the fans, Fighters he can defeat top ten Welterweights rather than lower level fighters. according to his opponents.

Participant in the UFC Welterweight tournament, Facing the whose who of Welterweights from Covington, Edwards, Wonderboy, Masvidal.

“I want to take the belt in one year, two years … as soon as possible. I’m going to take this soon. “I’m going to finish everybody,” he said. “I always look for the finish. Smash somebody, knock somebody out. I’m born for this. My life is to be champion. I don’t think somebody is going to cause me any problems. I’ll beat everybody like I did today. I promise you guys.”

https://www.insider.com/khamzat-chimaev-promises-to-smash-his-way-to-champion-status-2020-7

However “Borz” Khamzat Chimaev needs to pass by Michael Chiesa to lead to a title shot in a few more fights. Making his dream a reality of becoming a UFC Welterweight Champion.

Chiesa can end the hype of Chimaev and have a life changing win. Earning the million dollar settlement from Conor McGregor to now winning a fight against Chimaev that can lead to a title shot.

Win for each fighter changes there lives for the better, High stakes fight. Who wants it more!!

Future UFC fighter Tofiq Musaev was the Rizin Grand Prix Lightweight Champion defeating Patricky Pitbull(Patricio Pitbull brother) in the Grand Prix final. Musayev one of the best Lightweights in the world. Musayev is a impressive world class skilled fighter. He has very high level striking. I love watching Tofiq Musayev fight.

Kiamrian Abbasov

Kiamrian Abbasov One Championship Welterweight Champion is one of the best welterweights in the world. Abbasov till Father time is knocking on the door will be Welterweight champion. Reiging over the division for a while. Man he’s a world class fighter. Very underrated but as time goes on will appreciate Kiamrian Abbasov.

Eagles Fighting CHampionship 33 Fighters To Watch

Congratulations to Khabib and now creating one of the best MMA regional promotions. Scouting department for UFC, Bellator, One Championship, PFL, Rizin & Brave CF.

Fighters to watch at EFC 33 who can sign a contract in a major promotion.

Faridun Odilov

Faridun Odilov 28 year old Takijistan Middleweight prospect, EFC Middleweight Champion. Nickname is the terminator for a reason, Odliov is a grappling savage. Built like a brick from the country of Takijistan. Definitely can have a career in PFL.

Mansur Malachiev vs Ruslan Sariev

Mansur Malachiev EFC Bantamweight Champion, Underrated Bantamweight prospect in the prime of his career definitely will get a call to the big show Rizin, Brave CF, Bellator with a couple more title defenses. He’s a talented grappler with underrated striking that has potential to be a real skill as time goes on.

Ruslan Sariev 12-0 24 year old Kazakhstan assassin, Fast pace fighter. Quick speed that catch opponents if there few steps behind. One of the best Kazakhstan flyweights in the world. Ruslan will have a promising future as time goes on. He needs to gain some weight, Ten pounds of muscle at best because he can be one of the best pound for pound flyweights one DAY.

Gadzhi Rabadanov

Gadzhi Rabadanov Top Ten Russian Lightweight former PFL Lightweight, Won his fight against MMA veteran Steven Siler. Dominating Siler on the ground. Now fights for EFC. Like his fighting style of standing up and mixing with grappling. Similar to Islam Makhachev, Petr Yan. Few more wins lead to signing with a promotion like Rizin, Bellator.

Andre Harrison #1 MMA Free Agent Available

Andre Harrison Former WSOF Featherweight Champion, Titan FC Featherweight Champion. One of the few fighters to defeat Lance Palmer is no longer fighting for the Professional Fighters League he’s a free agent. Many options for Andre Harrison and TAKE ADVANTAGE of the opportunity.

WSOF 35 Lance Palmer vs Andre Harrison Million views plus on YouTube. One of the most underrated MMA names to date.

One MMA promotion definitely will offer a high six figures, PPV Buys incentive contract and Andre Harrison will be more than happy to take it. Any promotion will be lucky to have him as well Andre Harrison top 40-top 50 Featherweight in the world.

Bellator & Harrison

#1 option for Andre Harrison is to sign with the second best MMA promotion in the world. Bellator is growing and growing, Featherweight division is stacked with Patricio Pitbull, AJ Mckee, Emmanuel Sanchez, Aaron Pico, Darrion Caldwell, Daniel Weichel and many more upcoming Featherweights.

Andre Harrison signing with Bellator would be one of the best Bellator signings. Long successful career with Bellator. Works both ways.

Saul Rogers Bellator underrrated Featherweight vs Andre Harrison is a fun fight to watch for a Bellator debut. Fighting Adam Borics as well. So many fight options for Andre Harrison if he signed with Bellator and they offer sweet deals. Addition to sponsorships.

Andre Harrison & One Championship

One Championship Featherweights division is for strikers, Grappling is there biggest weakness for most of them and if Andre Harrison wants to win Featherweight title for one of the best MMA organizations in the world I’d definitely sign with One Championship.

Andre Harrison striking has gotten better but with Harrison’s college wrestling background it would be easy pickens for him. Plus One Championship offered Eddie Alvarez multi-million dollar deal, Harrison would get a nice pay cheque.

Sick fights against Martin Nguyen, Thanh Le One Championship Featherweight Champion, Gary Tonon. Dominating that division for a while and making a lot more money than fighting for PFL.

KSW & Andre Harrison

KSW #1 European MMA promotion signing Andre Harrison would dramatically help KSW. KSW is underrated promotion as it become a feeder league for UFC with Mateusz Gamrot, Jan Blachowicz, Alexander Gustafsson signing there. Now it’s time for KSW to sign a big time free agent.

KSW Featherweight division has three killers, Salahdine Parnasse former KSW Featherweight Champion, Daniel Torres KSW Featherweight Champion, Max Coga who fought for PFL.

Me personally be a dream fight for Andre Harrison vs Salahdine Parnasse. Sign me up please!! Parnasse world class Featherweight who can beat most UFC Featherweights. Got hit with a lucky shot by Daniel Torres.

Brave CF & Andre Harrison

Middle East #1 promotion, Owned by Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa and the Bahrain Royal Family. Brave CF is a rapid growing MMA promotion with Khamzat Chimaev, Amir Albazi, Ottaman Azaitar and many others would be signing with BRAVE CF.

Andre Harrison signing with BRAVE CF would be life changing money, Fighting in front of sold out crowds. Earning millions of dollars.

Good fights against Lucas Martins, Akhmed Magomedov, Erick Da Silva. Brave CF continues to sign world class prospects around the world, Harrison if he wants competition will have many Featherweights to choose from.

Andre Harrison can be the face of Brave CF for the foreseeable future. Dream come true for Andre Harrison.

Timur Valiev Next Fight After Martin Day

Timur Valiev Russian Bantamweight prospect, Successful career with Professional Fighters League and Gorilla Fighting Championship. Valiev second UFC fight was a dominant grappling performance with barely any damage taken.

Looking forward to Valiev’s next fight which could be scheduled in the next month if ready for a quick turn around but the Russian Frankie Edgar is ready for it.

Valiev physically looked great, Gained more muscle lost some love handles. Valiev 17-2 record definitely needs tougher competition as he’s good for it.

Cancelled fight with Julio Arce was the RIGHT fight for Valiev, Possibly reschedule Valiev vs Arce in March…

Fight options such as Darren Elkins, Herbert Burns, Alex Caceres. Top 25 Featherweights. Timur Valiev fighting lesser level opponents won’t show what he’s truly made of. Valiev was one of the best Bantamweights in the world before moving up to the Featherweight division.

Mirsad Bektic vs Timur Valiev would be a sick fight to watch, Bektic is on a losing streak but he always brings his best and we all remember Bektic for putting that whooping on Darren Elkins until Elkins brought out the DAWG in him.

Russian Frankie Edgar Timur Valiev trains with some of the best fighters in the world such as Frankie Edgar, Corey Anderson, Lance Palmer and coached by underrated head coach Nick Catone. Formely trained at Ricardo Almeida Jiu Jitsu with Eddie Alvarez, Marlon Moraes. Learning from coaching genius Mark Henry whose highly respected for his striking knowledge.

Knowledge amongst some of the best fighters, best coaches in the world.

Curious to see what Timur Valiev next fight is because in the next year and a half we can see him climb up the Featherweight rankings. Top 5-8 Featherweight in the world.

“I want to fight before Ramadan, 145, 135 lets go… Island, Alaska I don’t care. Julio Arce would be best for this.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSMPCuZpYts

“Ready for big show, I want to fight as much as I can.” Timur Valiev

Felipe Froes Most Underrated Featherweight Champion

ACA Featherweight division is stacked with future ACA champions, UFC, Bellator fighters. Top 5 Featherweight division some of the ACA Featherweights can compete with UFC, Bellator, PFL and One Championship featherweights such as … Felipe Froes

Felipe Froes ACA Career

Felipe Froes Shooto Brasil Featherweight signed with WFCA than found a home in ACA. Now ACA Featherweight Champion and one of the best featherweights non UFC. Froes winning the ACA Featherweight title in his third ACA fight and defending it once against Marat Balaev.

Fight against Balaev was impressive as Froes was getting dominated with takedowns but because of his mental strength and pure will had a comeback victory. Ending the fight with beautiful combinations against Balaev that lead to a ref stoppage.

Felipe Froes found a home in ACA, One of the best promotions in the world. See how talented he is in cross promotions like Bellator, Rizin, KSW, PFL, Combate Americas.

Froes showing the Major Promotions he’s one of the best Featherweights in the world just fights ACA.

Froes title winning performance against Salman Zhamaldaev was impressive at it went the full five rounds. Exciting high pressure FIGHT it was. Salman the better grappler but Fores has a very good tank and solid takedown defense that lead to hitting Salman Zhamaldaev with accurate volume striking.

Definitely watch the fight on youtube because you’re in for a treat. Both fighters are dawgs, Fighter with more mental toughness won that fight. Leading to the comeback win in his first title defense against Balaev which really SHOWED how much of a savage Froes is!

Felipe Froes 2021

2021 is a new year ACA 117 and 118 events are scheduled in February, ACA 119 we can see Froes defend his ACA Featherweight title for a second time against Magomerasul Khasbulaev #1 contender or Apti Bimarzaev #5 Featherweight. Froes obvious favorite in both fights but a fight against Bimarzaev.

Cross promotions are new with Bellator vs Rizin. Man I’d love to see Felipe Froes fight KSW Featherweights like Daniel Torres(KSW Featherweight Champion) and former champion Salahdine Parnasse. Felipe Froes traveling to Warsaw, Poland for a GREAT Featherweight clash of champions.

Second cross promotion option is Felipe Froes moving up to 155 pounds and fighting Tofiq Musaev Rizin Lightweight Champion. One of the best Lightweight fighters in the world.

Froes vs Musaev would be a sick technical fight mostly stand up with some beautiful sprawls that MMA fans will appreciate.

Cross promotion Title fights less likely to happen but one man can dream right!!

Smart way for the underrated Major promotions to build there promotions brand globally amongst MMA fans with better ratings and the ACA promoter should really bring Felipe Froes around the world. Same way NWA wrestling built up Ric Flair.

2021 is a important year for Felipe Froes 29 years old, Peak years ahead of him. Genuinely curious to see what happens with Froes in 2021.

Beneil Dariush Continues his Five Fight Winning Streak

Beneil Dariush underrated Lightweight has a five fight winning streak entering his fight Carlos Diego Ferreira. Opponent he already defeated but like Dariush, Ferreira has progressed since than.

Ferreira has a six fight winning streak defeating fighters like Pettis, Rustam Khabilov.

Dariush vs Ferreira is on the MAIN CARD of Allistair Overeem vs Alexander Volkov. Exciting fight for MMA fans.

Great fight on paper but I believe Dariush gets the win tomorrow night. Since the winning streak started for Dariush became an Iranian assassin. Becoming one of the best Lightweights in the world.

Win over Carlos Diego Ferriera leads to title shot in 2021, Finally making a dream a reality of being a UFC champion.

Dariush has more skills to his arsenal especially in his striking.

“The problem with recognition is that it comes with a lot of drama,” he said. “I like being under the radar. I like fighting high-level competition and being under the radar. I don’t need much (in terms of publicity and recognition). I just want to continue to work my way up to the title and become a champion.

https://www.ufc.com/news/healthy-beneil-dariush-firing-all-cylinders

Dariush and Rafael Cordeiro Head Coach at Kings MMA have a great partnership going as will continue to see the improvement in Dariush game. Watching another knockout in the early rounds.

Looking forward to this fight, Fight of the night written all over it. Dariush with the win, Big things ahead of him.

Manel Kape Long Awaited Debut

Manel Kape former Rizin Bantamweight CHAMPION after defeating Kai Asakura for the Bantamweight title at Rizin 20 in a masterful performance knocking Asakura in the second round, Leading to signing with the UFC.

Kape dropping down to the flyweight division and first opponent is Alexandre Pantoja #5th flyweight. Obvious step up in competition since his loss to Kyoji Horiguchi but Kape is up to the challenge as he’s highly respected amongst his training partners at AKA Thailand.

“I’m looking for a great battle. I know Pantoja’s a tough guy,” he stated. “But I see some limitations in his game that I can take good advantage of.” As to what those limitations are, Kape explained that he is a smarter, more complete fighter, while Pantoja is limited by being a slower fighter than the competition Kape has previously faced. “He has nothing that I’ve never seen before in his game,” said Kape. “But always, I never underestimate nobody. Never. But I’m sure that I’m better than him, 100%.”

https://cagesidepress.com/2021/02/05/ufc-vegas-18-manel-kape-one-more-fighter/

Manel Kape calling out Cody Garbrandt, Deiveson Figueiredo in MMA interviews. Making his name heard across social media platforms, MMA interviews. Building his name with the casual fans, Understanding he’s one of the best Non-UFC fighters.

Spotlight is on Manel Kape fighting in the Main Card, UFC promoting Manel Kape as one of the best fighters in the world. Champion from another organization as he’s coming here to prove that the best fighters don’t have to fight for the UFC.

“This year will be a blessed year for me,” said Kape. “Hopefully, by the end of the year, I have the belt. This is what I see, this is my goal, and this is what I’ve been working towards for such a long time.”

https://www.ufc.com/news/its-finally-manel-kapes-time-shine-ufc-fight-night-overeem-volkov-read

Definitely has what it takes to become a UFC Flyweight Champion creating a legacy for himself. Training at AKA Thailand with Mike Swick now AKA San Jose with Javier Mendez. Some of the best fighters in the world. Iron sharpens iron.

“I will keep my training there at AKA Thailand, but for camps, I will be here in America,” explained Kape, who carries a three-fight winning streak and 15-4 record into his debut on Saturday night. “I found an amazing coach and amazing sparring partners here.

“We have more intensity,” he said of the difference between his two training situations. “I have better partners, better coaches because the coaches here have been in the fight business a long time and they show me new things. The little details make all the difference — in the intensity of the sparring, in the training — and what I have here is a bunch of training partners that all compete at a high level.”

https://www.ufc.com/news/its-finally-manel-kapes-time-shine-ufc-fight-night-overeem-volkov-read

High level training hopefully helps because there’s no easy fights in the UFC but Kape is ready for the challenge!!

Kape confident in his skills that we should expect a dominant performance… Masterclass.

“Fans can expect a master class, and a smart game,” he said when asked what those getting their introduction to his skills and abilities will see on Saturday night. “I want to show and I want to prove that I’m the best fighter in the world.

https://www.ufc.com/news/its-finally-manel-kapes-time-shine-ufc-fight-night-overeem-volkov-read

I’m truly excited for this fight and Manel Kape’s long awaited debut.

Magomed Magomedov vs Brett Johns Spring of 2021

Magomed Magomedov former ACB Bantamweight Champion defeated Matteus Mattos in his Bellator debut at Bellator 254. Dominant grappling win as he was only at “60%.”

“I felt great, but I feel like I was basically about 60 percent,” Magomedov told MMA Junkie through an interpreter at the Bellator 254 post-fight news conference. “I basically just showed that I could wrestle, but what I didn’t show was how I mix it up in the standup and so forth.”

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/12/magomed-magomedov-i-was-only-able-to-show-about-60-percent-at-bellator-254

Curious to see what Magomedov is like at 100% against a world class fighter Brett Johns.

Yes Brett Johns fights for Bellator now since his UFC contract expired and like a SMART prizefighter tested free agency. Brett Johns 5-2 UFC record defeated Joe Soto, Tony Gravely, Five round losses to Aljamain Sterling and Pedro Munhoz.

What a welcoming debut for Brett Johns to fight Magomed Magomedov easily one of the best Bantamweights in the world.

Brett Johns defeats Magomed Magomedov in the Spring of 2021 that will move him up in the Bantamweight rankings and qualify in the Bantamweight grand prix if there was one in 2021.

Magomedov wins that shows he can defeat another UFC fighter as he’ll be on watch by Juan Archuleta as a future Bellator Bantamweight title challenger.

Bantamweight fight to schedule in 2021 I hope to see this dream fight become a reality. High level grappling, striking by two of the best Bantamweights in the world.

Move up to the 125 pound Flyweight Division and face Valentina Shevchenko. Shevchenko has no challenges so Dana White better schedule this dream matchup. Champion vs Champion.

Cody Garbrandt vs TJ Dillashaw 3

Rivalry between Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw is one of my favorite rivalries in sports. Beef they have of being teammates at Team Alpha Male. Two entertaining fights as Dillashaw knocked out Cody in both fights. Continuing storyline as Cody new & improved learning striking from Mark Henry(Striking coach genius) while TJ Dillashaw returns to the Octagon after a suspension. Second fight back is against Cody Garbrandt.

Gane vs Overeem

Kiamrian Abbasov One Championship Welterweight Champion defended his title once against former LFA Welterweight Champion James Nakashima at One Championship Inside the Matrix 2. Putting on a solid performance against Nakashima knocking him out in the 4th round.

Anderson Silva like comeback, Abbasov shows his mental toughness to knock out James Nakashima in the fourth round. Continuing his five fight winning streak to enter the 2021 One Championship campaign.

Abbasov reigns the One Championship Welterweight division making the argument he’s one of the best Welterweights in the world even tho he fights for One Championship.

Facing rising Welterweight Tyler McGuire 12-1 record( 2-1 One FC record) . Wins against Aglian Thani and Luis Santos in One Championship career. Headlining One Championship event, 2nd title defense for Abbasov.

Prime vs Prime, Adding to the argument that Abbasov is one of the best fighters and Welterweights in the world.

Of course I believe Kiamrian Abbasov is awarded the win because of his high-level grappling, Willing to win. Facing world class fighters. Dealing with the title defense pressure.

Third title defense against James Nakashima, Wants to revenge his loss after dominating 4 rounds but Abbasov comes back. Another option is fighting Shinya Aoki, One of the legends of the MMA world. Aoki former Pride fighter, Former Dream Lightweight Champion, Former One FC Lightweight Champion. Revenge his loss to MMA veteran, Luis Santos.

Choice is Abbasov but can’t pass up an opportunity to fight Shinya Aoki. Win against Aoki builds up his legacy, Earning the respect from the MMA world(Joe Rogan, Ariel Helwani, Luke Thomas, Brendan Schaub, Weighing In Podcast and many more MMA media). Impressing everyone with a dominant performance, Three title defenses in 2021. Showing his all around skills.

LOOKING forward to 2021 for Kiamrian Abbasov. Underrated fighter who hopefully gets a lot more recognition this year.

Breakout Fighter in 2021 Ludovit Klein

Ludovit Klein Slovakia’s own can be the first UFC Champion from Slovakia. Ever since I watched Ludovit Klein’s UFC debut, I became a fan of his. Truly blown away by his performance against City Kickboxing Shane Young.

Took advantage of the short notice fight and had a stunning UFC debut at UFC 253.

“This is always my style – the high kick and demolish my opponent. I am very, very happy for everything. Maybe problem because yesterday I didn’t cut weight – I just had one week from the call from the UFC to come here. Short notice, (so) there was not so much time to cut the weight. Next time, (I will) 100 percent make weight and win the fight – everything.”

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/lists/ludovit-klein-dream-head-kick-knockout-ufc-253-video

Stellar striking as Ludovit was a Slovakian Amateur Boxing Champion. Shows as he pieced apart Shane Young.

After UFC 253 highly positive he got more recognition globally as back home he’s Ireland version of Conor McGregor.

Both Ludovit and Conor have the A+ striking, Conor was the UFC Featherweight Champion and in the next five years will see Ludovit Klein become a UFC Featherweight Champion. Conor’s breakout year was in 2014 and Ludovit Klein’s year will be in 2021.

Hopefully Ludovit Klein returns to the Octagon in the next couple months, Fights guys like Billy Quarantillo, Charles Jourdain, Damon Jackson in his second UFC appearance.

Defeats, Dominates all three of those fighters. Ending the fight early with a first round knockout. Earning extra fifty thousand dollars from a performance of the night bonus.

Bump up in competition in his third fight with UFC, Potential opponents can be UFC Veterans Darren Elkins, Cub Swanson, Mawkan Amirkhani. Fighting the top 16-25 Featherweights. Elkins and Swanson fights I take with no hesitation. Featuring prelim on a UFC Pay Per View, UFC Main Card on ESPN +. Defeating Cub Swanson whose been fighting since the WEC days, Been in so many great fights. Recognizable name will only build up the name of Ludovit Klein.

MMA Media, Joe Rogan, Brendan Schaub, Ariel Helwani, Weighing In podcast, Luke Thomas, Sportscenter to start talking about him. “Mr. Highlight” Ludovit Klein.

End the year as a top 15 Featherweight with a win against Andre Fili (Team Alpha Male product), Hakeem Dawodu, Edson Barboza. All three fights are GREAT fights for fans and for Ludovit Klein. Win against any of the three will radically improve his name globally, Earning the respect of Dana White. If he was able to knock out Barboza for example, Sky rocket him to Pay Per View fights. Becoming a UFC rising STAR and fan favorite.

Awarded Breakout Fighter of the year in 2021. Remembered as the year for Ludovit Klein as 2022 challenges for the UFC Featherweight Title.

Archuleta vs Horiguchi Bellator/Rizin 2021

Bellator and Rizin(Japanese Promotion) cross promoting since 2018. Kyoji Horiguchi defending his Rizin Bantamweight Title against Darrion Caldwell twice(former Bellator Bantamweight Champion. Horiguchi can now fight the NEW Bellator Bantamweight Champion Juan Archuleta.

Horiguchi vs Archuleta better happen in 2021. Bantamweight Title Fight, Champion vs Champion. Dream matchup for HARDCORE MMA fans. Besides fighting Demetrious Johnson, My opinion is the toughest opponent for Horiguchi.

Archuleta is one talented fighter, When Bellator signed him I was more than excited. Archuleta was the King of the Cage Bantamweight, Featherweight, Lightweight, Light Welterweight Champion. Easily one of the best Bantamweights in the world with a 25-2 record, All-Around savage who trains with TJ Dillashaw.

Archuleta intrigued by the matchup against Horiguchi, Legacy fight for him.

“Who else is [Horiguchi] going to fight in Japan? You tell me,” Archuleta demanded. “Who else comes to mind with an 18 fight win-streak now. [I’ve] been dominating in and out of every fight I’ve been in. I’ve only lost one round in my whole career. I’ve only been taken down once in my whole career. Who else is he going to fight that will bring some excitement to the table?”

Juan Archuleta calling out Horiguchi since his rise with Bellator. Building up the fight best as possible, Millions of viewers will be watching this fight.

When it comes to Bellator’s former bantamweight champ, Horiguchi, Archuleta was especially enthused. “HORIGUCHI!!” he bellowed during Saturday’s post-fight press conference. “I’m still coming for you baby, where you at? I’m hope you’re ready, Horiguchi. I want that fight, baby! I want that RIZIN belt! Let’s go!”

http://Bellator 246: Juan Archuleta Ready for Responsibility of Being Champion

Horiguchi on the other hand defeats Juan Archuleta, Keep adding to his legacy. Mike Brown( American Top Team) says “Horiguchi is the most underrated fighter in the world.” Definitely support Mike Brown’s opinion. Ever since Kyoji Horiguchi signed with Rizin, He radically improved but hat’s off to him. King of Japanese MMA and the face of RIZIN.

“I think he’s grossly underrated, but that happens a lot when you’re fighting outside the UFC,” Brown told MMA Junkie in a phone interview. “But if you look at his record, his pedigree – I mean, it’s incredible. He’s got a great record, and now he’s fighting at 135 where he’s much smaller than guys – I think he can fight at both weight classes (flyweight) fairly easy – but with a few extra pounds, I think him fighting at 135, it’s given him more power.

“My priority is to go get back the Bellator belt I returned. I got my Rizin belt back, and now it’s time to go after the other one,” Horiguchi said.

Horiguchi displayed a Leonardo Da Vinci masterpiece against Kai Asakura at Rizin 26. First round knock out against Asakura, Earns back his Rizin Bantamweight Title.

Scott Coker(Bellator Promoter) and Nobuyuki Sakikibara (Rizin Promoter) better happen in 2021. Dream matchup between two of the BEST Bantamweights in the WORLD.

Miguel Baeza Ends 2021 as a Top 15 Welterweight

Miguel Baeza Alumni of the Dana White Contender Series, Finished 2020 as one of UFC Welterweight Prospects to keep an eye on. Knocking out UFC Vet Matt Brown, Spoiling his return to the octagon than defeating Takashi Sato.

“Now I’m ‘The Guy Who Beat Matt Brown,’” he said with a laugh, acknowledging that he’s getting recognized more, just not by name quite yet. “It’s not Miguel Baeza just yet; it’s ‘Hey — you beat Matt Brown, right?’

“I thought the ‘Caramel Thunder’ thing would stick too; that’s kind of one of the reasons I went for it, you know?” he added, still chuckling at his new standing as a “unknown known guy” within the MMA community. “I definitely have a little more notoriety, people see me more now — again, not as Miguel Baeza, but when you beat somebody, they recognize you a little more, so that’s a step in the right direction.”

https://www.ufc.com/news/rising-miguel-baeza-his-own-harshest-critic-blaydes-lewis-vegas-15

Caramel Thunder will stick in 2021 with more siginifcant wins such as Tim Means, Cowboy Oliveira, Jake Matthews to start off 2021.

Tim Means vs Miguel Baeza would be a FUN Fight to watch. Means impressed me a lot with his fight against Mike Perry. His jabs were doing work. Baeza facing a UFC Veteran like Tim Means will only help in the long run. Means doesn’t have the biggest name in the world but a learning experience fight, Test to see where he’s truly at.

Big win against a fighter like Tim Means will earn Dana White’s respect even more as Dana White envisions Baeza as the Puerto Rican Star. Success, Big finishes will lead to Dana White loving Baeza even more and Baeza better take advantage of that oppurtunity.

“10-0, Puerto Rican. When New York opens up again, you know what I mean? Get him fighting in New York. I’ve been talking about Puerto Rico, too. We talked about going to Puerto Rico a long time ago, I talked about building a Performance Institute in Puerto Rico, so he could be the guy. … He could be our Puerto Rican star.” Dana White

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/11/ufc-news-dana-white-praises-miguel-baeza-after-win

After a fight against Means or a UFC Veteran, Fights those top 15-25 Welterweights like Belal Muhammad, Niko Price, Robbie Lawler. With no hesitation if Sean Shelby or Mick Maynard offers the Lawler fight to Baeza he better accept the offer. PERFECT fight to build your name against one of the best Welterweights of all time. Everyone knows who Robbie Lawler is.

Disappointed that not many people know who he is… Well facing Lawler would be the right fight to build your name. Passing of the torch moment as Baeza is one of the next UFC Welterweight Champions. Breakout fight for him.

However Baeza should do what’s in his best interest but if Lawler is on the table please take it. Defeating Lawler would rank as Baeza as #15 Welterweight.

Possibly facing Belal Muhammad, Michael Chiesa, Santiago Ponzinibbio, Neil Magny by the end of 2021. Facing these WORLD CLASS fighters, All around fighters. Fights against 7-14 Welterweights, All great fights for Baeza. Pick your poison but Baeza can compete against the best of them.

Baeza is training partners with Colby Covington, Love him or hate him hes’s one of the best fighters in the world. Former Interim Welterweight Champion, Dominated Tyron Woodley, Rafael Dos Anjos and the stand up striking war with Kamaru Usman.

Baeza can train with Colby Covington than he can fight the top 15 Welterweights.

“The short-term goal is to get that ‘W,’ but the long-term goal is to be champion,” he said. “So whoever is in front of me is in front of me. It doesn’t matter if it’s top-15, top-10. Whoever it is, I’m coming after you.”

https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/11/30/21754427/ufc-vegas-15s-miguel-baeza-on-next-opponent-training-with-colby-covington

Baeza can end the year as top 15 UFC Welterweight, BREAKOUT YEAR for Miguel Baeza as a fighter and becoming the Puerto Rican star if Uncle Bobby Dana keeps his promise.

Parnasse Finally Signs with UFC in 2021?

Salahdine Parnasse arguably one of the best Featherweights in the world is the KSW Featherweight Champion. KSW is the European Version of the UFC. Selling out 40,000 seated arenas. Jan Blachowicz, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Mateusz Gamrot all fought for KSW in the past.

Parnasse is the next UFC fighter to sign with UFC and accomplish many things in the UFC. Parnasse was offered a UFC contract in the past but rejected the offer because of a low offer.

“We had longer negotiations. Of course, money was a full motivator, but we talked also about his further development.”

https://inthecage.pl/salahdine-parnasse-odrzucil-oferte-z-ufc/

However in 2021 may be different with couple title defenses. Starting off the year fighting Daniel Torres 11-4 European Featherweight(KSW 4-1) at KSW 58 on 1-30-21. Looking forward to this Featherweight clash. Two of the best Featherweights facing each other in the KSW 58 Co- Main Event.

See if Daniel Torres is a challenge to the 23 year old French Prodigy Salahdine Parnasse or Parnasse dominates the fight. Impressive win will continue to build his worth.

Third title defense in the Spring of 2021 can be against KSW Fighter Max Coga. Former PFL Featherweight, GMC Featherweight Champion. 22-7 record. Fighter with lot experience. Second toughest fight in Parnasse’s career.

Another option is for KSW to sign a European Featherweight champion from Oktagon FC, GMC, Venator FC. Parnasse fighting a top ten European Featherweight prospect.

Last option is signing a former UFC fighters like Diego Brandao, Marcin Held, Steven Siler, Pat Healy. Ending 2021 fighting former UFC fighters, Winning in impressive fashion that leads to UFC having no choice to sign Parnasse to a life changing offer.

Salahdine Parnasse without a doubt will succeed in the UFC, Deserves to fight for the UFC. Fight for the UFC Featherweight Title one day, Become one of the pioneers of French MMA. Main Event in a UFC event in Paris.

Potential Parnasse has with the UFC to build his brand and be one of the best fighters in the world is endless. Many opportunities for Parnasse. I hope UFC does the right thing and offers Parnasse the right contract.

Title Shot for Arnold Allen in 2021

2020 was a year that sucked for a lot of people including Arnold Allen. Only fought once in 2020 against Nik Lentz. Cancelled fight with Jeremy Stephens. No luck for Arnold Allen as 2020 was an important year for him.

“Before everything shut down, I was trying to fight in June,” Arnold recently told MMA Junkie. “I fought in January and was like, ‘All right, I’ll take a little break, then get back, get ready to fight.’ Obviously, everything shut down. I didn’t get to train for like, I think it was eight weeks that I didn’t step foot in a gym or train or anything. That’s when they started doing ‘Fight Island’ and all that. We started making plans to work around it so we’d be able to train.”

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/12/ufc-news-arnold-allen-tough-2020-wants-ranked-opponent-2021

Climb to the top of the UFC Featherweight division in 2020 but 2021 is a new year, #9th UFC Featherweight can end the year as a Featherweight title contender.

Hope that happens for Arnold Allen as he’s part of the next generation of UK fighters. Ever since I started getting obsessed with MMA, Arnold Allen is a UFC fighter always kept an eye on.

Trains at BKK fighters in England but travels to Montreal to train at Tristar Gym with George St Pierre, Rory MacDonald, Kevin Lee, Mirsad Bektic, Ryan Hall and many more world class fighters. Coached by #1 MMA coach Firas Zahabi. Master of MMA. Arnold Allen one of the next fighters from Tristar to become a UFC Champion in the next couple years if everything goes as planned!!

Earned the sponsoring, Respect from UK MMA pioneer Dan Hardy.

“He’s going to be one of the pioneers of the sport one day – he’s only scratching the surface of his skills and potential so far.” Dan Hardy

“Most definitely,” he said, when asked if Allen could reach the top. “And if he does get to that belt, it’s going to be very hard for someone to take it off him.” Dan Hardy

https://www.eadt.co.uk/sport/dan-hardy-tips-suffolk-s-arnold-allen-as-a-future-2456902

Arnold Allen is one of the most underrated UFC fighters on the roster, 16-1 record, #9th Featherweight. Earned the respect from Dan Hardy but in 2021 can earn respect from thousands of new fans.

Finally fighting Jeremy Stephens in 2021 on a UFC PPV Main Card or a Featuring Prelim. UFC promoting Arnold Allen on UFC Embedded, UFC content as the NEXT GEN of England Fighters. Showing a impressive performance after a long wait, Starting off 2021 the RIGHT WAY.

“(Stephens or Josh Emmett) make sense,” Allen said. “I’ve done a camp for both of those guys. They both obviously fell through. (In) 2021, I’ve got to get busy. I can’t be waiting around over here fighting once a year. I’ve definitely got to get busy.”

https://47sportsclub.com/struggling-to-find-fights-arnold-allen-hopes-ufc-ranked-opponent-kicks-off-2021-schedule/

Fight against Gilbert Melendez was a breakout performance, Fight against Josh Emmett or Jeremy Stephens is the rising STAR fight.

Interesting fight to make after a win against Emmett or Stephens is facing “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung. Korean Zombie former UFC Featherweight title challenger and fan favorite is the PERFECT fight for Arnold Allen to build his name. Talks about not having the biggest name, Well Korean Zombie is well known to casuals because of his fighting style.

Defeating a top Five Featherweight will place Arnold Allen as a title contender. Deserving a title shot in 2022, Close to making his DREAM a REALITY.

Mandy Bohm Bellator Flyweight Champion in 2021

Mandy Bohm German Assassin, former TKO Flyweight Champion is 1-0 with Bellator. Showing a masterful performance in her Bellator debut at Bellator 247 defeating Griet Eeeckhout.

Smooth striking displayed in the three rounds, Added with her grappling ability.

Bohm only fought once in 2020 but potentially can fight three times in 2021. Fighting and winning the Bellator Flyweight Title. Mandy Bohm is one talented fighter and I don’t see no one defeating her.

Mandy Bohm is the next version of Joanna Jędrzejczyk. Bohm will reign over the Bellator Flyweight Division but 2021 is the beginning for something special.

Liz Carmouche vs Mandy Bohm can be booked for 2021 as this fight was cancelled in 2020 because of the coronavirus. Perfect opportunity to fight former two time UFC Women’s title challenger. Build her name off a former UFC fighter. Discussed as a future Bellator Flyweight Champion.

” I step into the Bellator cage when I say I’m ready I mean I’m ready I’m focused I’m count and I’m professional enough to um to everyone in the division it’s a game I’m not here to swim around or something like this I’m here to compete I’m here to fight the best girls in the division. That’s what I need to do I’m not just here.” Mandy Bohm

“It’s my journey, My wish to go to the top that is what I want go to the top, I know I have a lot of work, I have a lot to do but I do it everyday I never stop working and I’m sure I can I’m good but every day I’m getting better.” Mandy Bohm

Defeating Carmouche will lead to fighting Kate Jackson, Kana Watanabe or Vanessa Porto (Former Invicta FC Flyweight Champion). Fighting Vanessa Porto would be the best option for Bohm.

Carmouche vs Porto would be fun flyweight fight to watch, Porto 22-8 veteran and Amateur Boxing Champion in Brazil. Main Card Bellator fight or Co-Main Event fight. Defeating another former Flyweight Champion will help out a lot moving forward.

Mandy Bohm ends the year fighting the Bellator Flyweight Champion if it remains Juliana Velasquez or llima Lei Macfarlane wins the Bellator Flyweight title back.

Either way Bohm will make her dream a reality, Becoming a Flyweight World Champion. Will defeat Velasquez or Macfarlane. Coach John Kavanagh will have the PERFECT game plan for Bohm’s opponents. Leading to winning her title fight, Becoming the 2nd SBG Ireland Champion.

Austin Vanderford Challenges for the Bellator Middleweight Title in 2021

Austin Vanderford building his own reputation, Instead of being Mr. Vanzant. Vanderford fought on the Contender Series but didn’t get the UFC contract. Second best option was signing with Bellator.

Since signing with Bellator in 2019 currently has a 4-0 record, Fought Vinicius De Jesus former CES Welterweight Champion on November 5th 2020. Best win of Austin Vanderford’s career so far as CES is one of the best regional promotions in the world.

Right way to end 2020 and end 2021 as the Bellator Middleweight Title challenger.

“I want people to know that I deserve it and I’m ready to fight for the title. I’m ready whenever. But we’re just going to keep on the pace and do what Bellator wants me to do. They’ve done such a great job so far. I’ve had opponents fall out and they were quick in getting me someone.”

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/11/bellator-251-austin-vanderford-american-top-team-move-pays-off

2021 with the right fights such as …. John Salter(8-1 Bellator record) NAIA Wrestling Champion at 147 pounds would be the perfect matchup for Vandferford. Challenging himself against a high level grappler, Second degree black belt. Gold medalist at the ADCC North American Championship in 2017.

Vanderford defeating a quality opponent like John Salter in the middle of 2021 will earn himself a contender fight against Anatoly Tokov or Costello Van Steenis. Both fights would be very interesting to watch.

Tokov currently has 29-2 record(5-0) record, #1 Bellator Middleweight. Waiting for the opportunity to fight Gegard Mousasi but Mousasi might be a participant in the Bellator Light Heavyweight Grand Prix.

Tokov vs Vanderford is the Bellator Middleweight contender fight for the winter of 2021. Anatoly Tokov the heavy handed first round knock out power vs Vanderford stellar grappler. Hopefully this fight happens because MMA fans will be excited to see Tokov vs Vanderford. High level Middleweight fight.

Win against Tokov will change his life forever, Defeating one of the best Middleweights non UFC. #1 Contender for the Bellator Middleweight Title. Anticipating the fight of his life against Gegard Mousasi in 2022.

Arman Tsarukyan Earns a Contender Year in 2021

Arman Tsarukyan UFC Lightweight prospect, By far is one of my favorite MMA fighters in ANY promotion right now. One of the best UFC prospects with potential to become UFC Lightweight Champion in the next five years.

Before becoming UFC Lightweight Champion has to become a top ten Lightweight, New Years resolution for Arman Tsarukyan is being ranked in the top ten of the Lightweight division.

Starting 2021 facing off against another favorite prospect of mine Nasrat Haqparast at UFC 257, January 23 2021. Nasrat is part of the next generation of fighters from Tristar Gym. World class fighter. Haqparast vs Tsarukyan is gonna be an interesting fight to watch.

Win against the Tristar Gym prospect will start 2021 the right way. Showing off his skills at UFC 257 that blown me away in his fight with Khabib’s bestfriend Islam Makhachev. Even though he lost, Impressed me with his sprawls, grappling in his UFC debut.

Since Arman was successful against Islam fighting Nasrat Haqparast is going to be a cake walk maybe but will see at UFC 257.

Defeating Nasrat will lead to matchups against top 10- 15 matchups.

“I want to fight with [Al] Iaquinta,” was his initial reply. However, before explaining why, he switched up his answer, simply saying he wanted any ranked opponent. “I want to fight with top 15, top 10. I want to let everybody know who I am.”

https://cagesidepress.com/2020/07/20/ufc-fight-island-2-arman-tsarukyan/

Arman deserves a top 10-15 Lightweight, Helps with the recognition. Fighting “Raging” Al Iaquinta. Lasted five rounds with Khabib.

Arman Tsarukyan fight “Raging” Al Iaquinta is the perfect for Arman. Be interested to see if he has what it takes against a tough fighter with wins against Kevin Lee, Jorge Masvidal, Nassau Community College Wrestler. Main Card on a UFC Pay Per View, Showcasing Arman as a future UFC Lightweight Champion.

However because of how talented Arman he can defeat Al Iaquinta. Leading to more recognition and respect. Replacing Iaquinta as the #10 Lightweight.

End the year fighting the top 5-10 Lightweights, Hooker, Rafael Dos Anjos, Paul Felder. Depending how everything goes. All of those 5-10 matchups are all very exciting. Imagine fighting Rafael Dos Anjos, Sick that would be. Facing against “El Cucuy” Tony Ferguson, Old vs NEW.

Watch out for Arman Tsarukyan in 2021, Future UFC Lightweight Champion. 2021 is the breakout year for him. Finish the year as top eight Lightweight.

Special Year For Aaron Pico in 2021

Coaching the next George St Pierre as GSP was a former fighter at JacksonWink before moving to Tristar.

“I feel really good being out in Albuquerque. I really, really enjoy it,” Pico said. “I love Greg Jackson, ‘Six-Gun’, Coach Wink, they’ve done a really good job of breaking things down for me.

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2019/10/bellator-aaron-pico-benefits-jackson-wink-mma-training

100 % FUTURE Bellator Featherweight Champion, Talent Pico has and coached by Greg Jackson only a matter of time before the Bellator Featherweight title is wrapped around his waist.

“My favorite fighter right now is Kamaru Usman, and I really, really watch a lot of stripes on him,” Pico said. “Yeah, he doesn’t get a lot of knockouts, but he wins. He’s winning, he’s coming out of the fight and he’s healthy, and that’s something I put in my head. Of course, I want to be exciting, but I want to win. This is the most important thing. I want to get the W and whatever it takes to do it, I will. I want to be smart. I don’t want to be touched and I want to go home, have no marks on me and be healthy.

https://www.fr24news.com/a/2020/07/bellators-aaron-pico-inspired-by-ufc-champion-kamaru-usman-just-won.html

Pico can be the Kamaru Usman of the Bellator Featherweight Division for years to come. All- Around skills but by far his BEST is the world class wrestling.

Rematch year in 2021 calling out Adam Borics & Henry Corrales in his interview with MMAJunkie Journalist, John Morgan.

Both exciting matchups for him, Both he can defeat with ease as Aaron Pico is a changed man. Wants to fight in February, Hopefully Henry Corrales or Adam Porics accepts the offer and fights Aaron Pico. Many of us want to see those two matches.

Defeating either of them in a successful one sided butt whooping can lead to even better matchups like Daniel Weichel, Daniel Straus, Darrion Caldwell in the Spring of 2021. Displaying his best skills even his striking that KO’d John De Jesus. Respected boxing even from the likes of Freddie Roach.

 “Aaron Pico is a good enough boxer to be Miguel Cotto’s sparring partner for two of his title fights. I’m not saying just his sparring partner, his number one sparring partner. That’s how good he is in boxing.”

https://cagesidepress.com/2019/01/12/freddie-roach-talks-training-georges-st-pierre-aaron-pico-says-gsp-might-have-one-more-fight/

Possibly joining the 2021 Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix if Scott Coker decides to create one again, This time Pico better accept a slot in the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix.

Either way fighting 2-3 times in 2021 against top of the food chain Bellator Featherweights will LEAD to fighting for a title in 2022.

Impressing all the MMA fans, Earning his respect back as the Lebron James of MMA, Gaining up to a million followers because of Aaron Pico name being discussed across sports media. Mentioned on the Joe Rogan Podcast, Ariel Helwani show, CBS Sports. Showcasing his highlight reel knockouts.

“She’s ranked 12 in the UFC women’s flyweight division, so it also aligns with what I want. It was an excellent offer.”

Displaying impressive striking performance against the VET will lead to tough fights against Joanne Calderwood, Jessica Eye or Roxanne Modaferri. Any of the three will have a difficult time fighting Sabina Mazo,

Nasty fighter in the clinch, Pieced apart JJ Aldrich she can piece apart the 6-8 women’s flyweights.

Magomed Magomedov 2021 Title Shot Year

EXCITED for Bellator when they signed Magomed Magomedov, ONLY fighter to defeat Petr Yan. Magomed one of the best Bantamweights non UFC/Bellator before signing with Bellator.

Now 1-0 with Bellator after a dominant wrestling performance against respected Brazilian Bantamweight prospect Mattheus Mattos.

2021 Magomed Magomedov can remain undefeated with Bellator and RISE through the Bellator Bantamweight division in 2021. Ending in 2021 Title Shot year.

Watch him beat Leandro Higo, Patchy Mix, Brett Johns, Josh Hill on his route to the top of the Bantamweight division. 100 % capable of defeating all the top Bantamweights on any given day.

2021 WILL be a full year to show what Magomed Magomedov is truly capable of.

Performance against Mattos is only a glimpse. Post fight Magomed stated “Shown 60 %.” Magomed in his fight against Mattos was dealing with injuries, Ring rust but even with that still dominated.

“I think maybe ring rust played a factor; I had some injuries in camp, but I really wanted to take the fight,” Magomedov said. “Also, it’s a new organization, my first fight here. I wanted to make sure that, you know, you have nerves and everything, so now that I’ve passed that, I think it went well.”

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/12/magomed-magomedov-i-was-only-able-to-show-about-60-percent-at-bellator-254

Earned his way to fighting tougher opponents after defeating Mattos, Love to see Magomed fight Josh Hill, Leandro Higo or Patrick Mix in his first fight of 2021.

Show the complete arsenal of his skills against a top Bellator Bantamweight, Even Magomed Magomedov himself said…

 “I wouldn’t mind having one more fight just to kind of open up more and really get going — and then I’m definitely ready for a title.”

https://cagesidepress.com/2020/12/13/bellator-254-magomed-magomedov-fight/

For example fighting a world class Bantamweight like Patrick Mix former KOTC Bantamweight Champion in the MAIN CARD of a Bellator event, Putting on an All-Around winning display will earn himself a title shot. However Magomedov vs Mix would be a GREAT fight to watch.

Impressive him against Mix or top of the food chain Bellator Bantamweight will earn him a title shot or being a title contender.

Recognized as a rising Bellator Bantamweight, Rising star that all MMA fans start to recognize.

Continue to recognize as he can challenge the Bellator Bantamweight Champion if it’s Juan Archuleta or Sergio Pettis at the tail end of 2021.

This is only a vision of how Magomed Magomedov’s 2021 season can go, May not go exactly as planned but capable of ending the year as the Bellator Bantamweight Champion.

Troy Worthen Earns Top 5 Bantamweight Ranking With a Win against Saadulaev

Troy Worthen 7-0 One Championship Bantamweight Prospect former All American Wrestler at University of Central Florida is fighting Yasup Saadulaev #4th One Championship Bantamweight at One Championship Collision Course on Friday.

Worthen with a win against Saadulaev earns himself a top 5 One Championship Bantamweight ranking.

 I think it will probably be a first or second-round TKO. I bring pressure, my striking gets to him, he starts taking bad shots, and then I end up clipping him in the exchanges and finishing the fight. I’ll say a first or second-round TKO.

https://mmasucka.com/2020/12/16/troy-worthen-im-going-to-bring-pressure-from-the-opening-bell/

Ending 2020 as a rising Bantamweight contender. Definitely will be the toughest fight of Troy Worthen’s career but training at powerhouse MMA gym Sanford MMA coached by Henri Hooft, Training with Burns, Michael Chandler, Aung La Nsang, Martin Nguyen, Logan Storley and many more talented fighters.

Learning from these great fighters, Former champions that will help Troy Worthen maximize his potential and become One Championship Bantamweight Champion.

First step in become Bantamweight Champion is defeating Yassup Saadulaev.

I’m very well prepared and I’m very confident my preparation and I believe I’m one of the best guys in the world and I’m looking to go prove that.” Troy Worthen

Fight to watch at One Championship: Collision Course is Troy Worthen vs Yasup Saadulaev. Exciting fight to stay tuned for but I believe Worthen gets the win Friday.

#1 MMA Free Agent on the Market 2020

Remember the name Rustam Kerimov? Who is he? Rustam Kerimov former ACA Bantamweight Champion 14-0 record at 28 years old. ONLY reason he’s the former champion is because his ACA contract expired and interested in testing free agency.

My opinion Rustam Kerimov is the #1 free agent on the market right now. Yes that’s my opinion, He’s a world class fighter in the prime of his career.

Displaying masterful performances against talented Bantamweights like Abdul-Rakhman Dudaev. Best performance of his career. First round finishes against respected Bantamweight Takeya Mizugaki.

Defeating Russian savages like Oleg Borisov, Tural Ragimov, Alexander Peduson. International fighters like Francisco Maciel and Takeya Mizugaki.

Now time to fight against the best of the best Bantamweights in the world from the UFC, Bellator or One Championship. Best offer possible. Major promotions are lucky to have him as he can become there promotions champion. Argued one day as one of the best Bantamweights in the world.

A + fighter, All around skills with volume striking, Strong right hand. Addition to his outstanding grappling that impressed me the most against Dudaev.

Love to see him face guys like Jimmie Riviera, Patchy Mix, John Lineker. Show the world he can compete against the BEST Bantamweights in the top promotions.

2021 curious to see where #1 Bantamweight free agent signs than prospers to the top of the Bantamweight division.

Yusuf Raisov Future UFC/Bellator fighter Guarantee!!

Yusuf Raisov NEXT GENERATION of Russian Fighters to sign with UFC or Bellator, High level Lightweight with technical striking adding to the grappling that ALL Russians are known for. Raisov is an all around talent, One of the best Russian Lightweights and top Lightweight non UFC/Bellator.

Says a lot for a 25 year old Russian Lightweight to be #1 Russian Lightweight, Competing against a bunch of savages.

Raisov fights for #1 Russian Promotion Absolute Championship Akhmat, Lots of success there as 90 % of his fights been with ACA. Now time to continue his success with either UFC or Bellator, No way Yusuf Raisov does not get signed by UFC or Bellator.

Bound to happen, Maybe with winning the ACA Lightweight title in 2021, Revenging his loss against Artem Reznikov than fight for the ACA Lightweight title against Abdul-Aziz Abdulvakhabov.

Win against Abdul Aziz, Raisov should get the offer from either UFC or Bellator. MMA fans will love the way he fights, Talented striker who throws his combinations well but needs to work on his takedown defense as he got dominated in the wrestling department in his loss to Artem Reznikov.

However Raisov is a savage and kept fighting, Relentless mindset even though he lost all three rounds because of the takedowns. Will get the respect from Dana White and Scott Coker because of his SAVAGE mentality. Equipped with his striking ability.

UFC/Bellator Lightweight contender. Success in either promotion, No doubt in my MIND.

Expect Big Things from Rafael Fiziev 2021

Rafael Fiziev the new version of the Matrix and the newest UFC Lightweight prospect riding high on a three fight winning streak to end 2020. 2021 be a special year for Rafael Fiziev, Becoming a UFC Lightweight contender.

Since watching the Marc Diakiese fight, Fiziev has become one of my favorite fighters to watch. Blown away by his striking ability.

Continue to gain more fans pulling off performances similar to his three fight winning streak.

Fighting top 15-top 20 Lightweights to start off 2021 against fighters Al Iaquinta, Gregor Gillespie, Alexander Hernandez, Bobby Green. Handful of fighters to choose from.

 “It doesn’t matter who and where, I just want to stay busy next year. I’m not like a really top guy now. If you give me someone to kill, I’m ready to kill him, I’m not like Figueiredo and I’m not like Superman. No. I just want to rest a little bit and then next year, maybe three months? Just give me three months and I’m ready again.

https://cagesidepress.com/2020/12/13/ufc-256-rafael-fiziev-busy/

When the Matrix decides to return, Definitely be looking forward to him having a great fight. Earning another 50k in his bank account from a beautiful five punch combination that he learnt from Valentina Shevchenko, Petr Yan and Head Coach George Hickman.

Tiger Muay Thai high on Fiziev to become the next champion out of the world class Thailand gym.

https://cagesidepress.com/2020/12/08/bellator-254-magomed-magomedov-yan/

Magomed can compete with the best of the best Bantamweights. Now can fight in the STACKED Bellator Bantamweight division.

Matteus Mattos 12-1-1 record at 28 years old, Former Ultimate Fighter contestant Brazil Season 4. Fought in the ACB promotion, Only loss to Petr Yan which is 100% understandable. Trains at the Pitbull Brothers gym, Training with Patricio Pitbull, Patricky Pitbull, Leandro Higo, Henry Cejudo and coached by Captain America himself Eric Albaraccin.

Learning from two of the best MMA fighters of all time in Cejudo and Patricio Pitbull will help him tremendously moving forward in his Bellator career. Mattos is a very talented fighter and Bellator is lucky to have him.

Mattos looking forward to challenging the only fighter to defeat Petr Yan. Great fight for a Bellator debut, Co main Event Slot.

ACA 118 Azam Gaforov Prospect to Watch

ACA 118 Murad Abdulaev vs Abubakar Vagaev is the headliner but on the prelims is a specific prospect to watch who can sign with UFC or One Championship. Azam Gaforov is that prospect to watch, World class flyweight prospect born and raised Tajikistan fighting one of the best MMA promotions in the world.

Azam Gaforov 27 year old 12-1 record, Wushu Sanda fighting style. High level Flyweight is the #8th Flyweight in ACA. Fighting the 6th ranked flyweight Charles Henrique. Competitive fight, Gaforov defeats a really tough Braziian flyweight that will help him move up the rankings.

Gaforov reminds me of Brandon Moreno because of his pressure stand up striking. Looks like a pitbull, Keeps going at you!! Sweet hands, Solid takedown defense but needs to work on his stand up defense because he’ll get cracked against Moreno, Kape, France if he ever fought in the UFC.

However Azam Gaforov is VERY VERY good, Expect big things from 27 year old who will be signing with the UFC, One Championship in the near future.

Expect a significant win for Gaforov that will lead to a 2021 title shot!!

ACA 2021 Goncharov vs Zulaev

ACA Featherweight Division top 5 Featherweight division in the world. Leading the charge is Felipe Froes ACA Featherweight Division. Featherweight division has young hungry lions looking to sign with UFC, Bellator, One Championship, PFL to improve there lives for the better.

Featherweight fight I’d love to see is Andrey Goncharov 15-3 record, #7th ACA Featherweight. Extremely talented, Exciting fighter to watch. In for a treat. Faces Askhab Zulaev 8-1 record at 23 years old. Zulaev is one of the most underrated Russian prospects in 2021. Impressive with his performances in his ACA career.

Featherweight clash between Andrey Goncharov vs Askhab Zulaev would be a GREAT fight to watch. World class featherweights, Future fighters who will one day sign with UFC, Bellator.

Goncharov striking fighting style, Consistent on standing up as he cracked Adlan Bataev in the second round.

Zulaev on the other hand shoots for the takedown and executes his striking when seeing an opening.

Two different fighting styles make a GREAT fight to watch for ACA in 2021.

Jaleel Willis VS Shamil Nikaev Bellator Summer 2021?

Jaleel Willis former LFA Welterweight Champion, One of the best Welterweight prospects before signing with Bellator. Congratulations to Bellator signing Willis rather than UFC.

Willis defeated former Final Fight Champion Mark Lemminger in a three round Unanimous decision. Looking forward to Jaleel’s next fight as he’ll have a successful run with Bellator.

Shamil Nikaev Bellator Welterweight prospects, Former Welterweight fighting for ACA is 1-0 with Bellator and 10-0 overall. Nikaev trains at powerhouse gym Sanford MMA. Respected by his coach Henri Hooft. Trains with Burns, Michael Chandler, Logan Storley, Vicente Luque.

Bunch of killers at Sanford MMA. Nikaev is currently rehabing and couple months he’ll be healed. Ready to go.

Shamil Nikaev first Bellator fight was a GREAT WAR against Kemran Lachinov. However the mentally tough Nikaev fought injured but pushed through the pain.

Jaleel Willis from selling T-Shirts at a carnival to now fighting for the #2 Bellator promotion.

Jaleel Willis is a DAWG in his own right, World class fighter. Well accomplished regional fighter. Motivated to be a provider for his family, Grinding at the gym and at work. All in on becoming the best fighter he can possibly be.

Jaleel Willis former high school wrestler in his hometown fighting Chechen wolf Shamil Nikaev. Pressure fighting style like Yaroslav Amosov on paper would be a GREAT fight to watch this summer of 2021.

Willis vs Nikaev on Bellator prelims or first bout on a Main Card.

New era of Bellator, Switching networks to Showtime. Bringing back the nostalgia of Strikeforce. Fights like Willis vs Nikaev is what will bring Bellator to the next level. Top to bottom cards with GREAT fights instead of Tito Ortiz vs Chael Sonnen.

Mateusz Gamrot vs Bobby Green Spring of 2021

Mateusz Gamrot former KSW Featherweight and Lightweight Champion lost his first fight in the UFC but the sky’s the limit for Gamrot. Before signing with UFC was one of the best Lightweight prospects in the world. Now he can show he’s one of the best UFC Lightweights.

Gamrot vs Bobby Green

Gamrot last fight was in October 2020. Time for a fight soon!! Fight against Bobby Green, UFC Lightweight Veteran. One of the fighters who took advantage of Covid-19 with quick turn around fights.

Bobby Green wins over Lando Vanatta, Josh Thomson, Clay Guida. Green is one of those fighters who always come out and puts on a performance, Win or lose. He’s a name and Mateusz Gamrot defeats Bobby Green, Man that would really help.

UFC is high on Gamrot and I completely understand, One of the best Lightweights in the world. Judges screwed him out of a loss and scheduled bout… Fighting Bobby Green April 2021.

– It wasn’t mine fight. This is nonsense, “no 1 bulshit”. I am an honest man, you know. Both me and this guy worked hard, but when it came to that verdict … it wasn’t my fight. How many times has this guy brought me down? I am sorry to say this, but it was not my match. I don’t know how the judges scored this fight. Thanks a lot of course, but I’m not happy because it’s not what I expected. Gamrot brother, you are a fighter, thank you very much. I’ve already told you this, you won this fight, it was yours – said Kutateladze after the fight.

https://www.world-today-news.com/a-scandal-at-gamrots-ufc-debut-the-pole-lost-even-though-his-rival-admitted-that-it-was-nonsense/

“January, March I’ll be Ready.” Mateusz Gamrot

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvsceQBosBs

Gamrot doesn’t need to fight UFC fighters with 10-0 records, Lower ranked opponents. Match him up against Mateusz Gamrot and see what he does!! KSW Featherweight and Lightweight Champion for a reason. UFC sees the talent there and fighting a tough as nails fighter like Bobby Green will see what he’s all about.

Aaron Pico vs Adam Borics 2 Spring of 2021

Aaron Pico rejuvenated since switching gyms to Jackson Wink MMA Academy. Three fight winning streak leading into 2021 wants to revenge his losses against Henry Corrales vs Adam Borics.

Adam Borics is highly touted trains out of Sanford MMA, Bounced back strong after the hard loss to Darrion Caldwell.

Henry Corrales is a solid fighter but Adam Borics is even better. Aaron Pico vs Adam Borics in April, May of 2021 would a GREAT fight for both fighters.

Aaron Pico REVENGES his loss to Adam Borics, Showing the continued haters and doubters that he can DEFEAT world class Featherweights.

“I would love to fight Adam Borics.” Aaron Pico interview with MyMMANews

” I wanna start making my revenge tour for sure, I’m not a good loser, I don’t like losing. I grabbed my nuts and fought those guys when I knew nothing I fought Henry Corrales when I only had what six fights I fought Adam Borics only had like seven fights these guys had way more experience.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnM19xdFj9A

Adam Borics can continue his winning streak and ends.. Aaron Pico’s. On paper this a sick fight to watch, Storyline behind this fight would be entertaining to watch if Bellator markets and story tells correctly.

On the other hand Aaron Pico is a monster and finally now reaching his potential. Next George St Pierre and with a revenge win against Adam Borics is a win in the right direction.

Spring of 2021 Aaron Pico vs Adam Borics two of the best Bellator Featherweight prospects.

Stamp Fairtex Step up in competition

Stamp Fairtex #5 ranked Women’s Atomweight for One Championship is the main event fighter for One Championship: Unbreakable 3.

Step up in competition as Stamp Fairtex faces Alyona Rassohyna 12-4 record one of the best Women’s European prospects. WWFC Atomweight Champion before signing with One Championship.

Chatri Sityodtong believes in Stamp Fairtex as she’s part of the future for One Championship. Test fight for her, See if Fairtex has what it takes to become a Atomweight Champion.

Fairtex wins this fight against Alyona she’ll fight the top five atomweights such as Mei Yamaguchi and Lin Hiquin.

Definitely capable of winning this fight as Stamp Fairtex easily one of the best strikers or the BEST women’s striker in the world, Not even One Championship. One Championship Muay Thai and Kickboxing Atomweight Champion.

Motivated more than ever because of losing her One Championship Muay Thai title. Looking to return gain more confidence defeating one of the best Atomweight prospects in the WORLD.

Stamp Fairtex is an assassin and one of the next MMA stars, Definitely will be watching One Championship Unbreakable 3 especially for her. Step up in competition but I’m sure she accepts the challenge.

Logan Storley vs Neiman Gracie Spring of 2021

Loss is a loss but Logan Storley loss to Yaroslav Amosov really impressed me. Toughest fight Yaroslav Amosov ever had and Storley continued to challenge Amosov till the last second. Winning sprawls, Stuffing takedowns. Hitting Amosov in those three rounds.

Looking back at that fight you’ll see the improvements in Storley and one day he will challenge for the Bellator Welterweight title.

Logan Storley vs Neiman Gracie

Logan Storley vs Neiman Gracie would be the perfect fight for both fighters. Storley coming off a loss doesn’t need to fight a guy like Lorenz Larkin or Andrey Koreshkov. Neiman Gracie a world class Jiu-Jitsu player, Next generation of Gracies would be a challenge to Storley.

Challenging Storley’s Division One Minnesota Grappling to the best of his ability.

Neiman Gracie facing a highly respected Logan Storley, Trains at Sanford MMA with Gilbert Burns, Vicente Luque, Derek Brunson. Stories of Storley winning wrestling practices, Winning spars against Sanford MMA fighters. A lot of hope with Storley.

Neiman can stop that hype down in Florida and start a winning streak that can lead to a title shot. Neiman one of the most underrated fighters Bellator has!!

Win over Ed Ruth, Jon Fitch and a decision loss to Rory MacDonald. No easy customer. Neiman Gracie is leading the next generation of the Gracie Family.

Days of UFC old timers, Circus fights with Bellator are done. New era of Bellator with Scott Coker, Neiman Gracie vs Logan Storley would be a Main Card fight on a UFC Event and would be a sick fight on a Bellator Main Card as well.

Sign me up!! Neiman Gracie vs Logan Storley Spring of 2021

Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix 2021

Bellator Bantamweight division number one or number two most talented division in Bellator. Leading with Juan Archuleta Bellator Bantamweight Champion, Sergio Pettis, Magomed Magomedov Former ACB Bantamweight Champion, James Gallagher, Patchy Mix and many more talented Bantamweights.

Since the division is STACKED top to bottom, Many dream fights to schedule in 2021 why not have a Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix?

Time to create one since the Heavyweight division and now the Featherweight division is almost done with there tournament.

“I’ll tell you, I think we have some choices here,” he said when asked what weight class might get the nod for the next tournament. “I think that everybody’s in contention as far as weight class. I think we have two or three different divisions, we just haven’t decided yet.” https://cagesidepress.com/2020/12/14/bellator-254-scott-coker-grand-prix-next/

Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix finals are next with AJ Mckee waiting for the Patricio Pitbull vs Emmanuel Sanchez fight. After the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix Finals is over, Scott Coker should announce the next Grand Prix… Bantamweight Grand Prix.

Broadcast move to CBS Sports Network help the Bellator tremendously in the next five years, Most importantly help the fighters BRANDS. Many of the Bellator Bantamweights don’t have the recognition and all eyes on them with a Grand Prix. Headlines of surprising upsets and the stories behind the fighters.

To be honest with you it’s a no brainer from Bellator’s standpoint. MMA fans will be watching high level fights from Juan Archuleta fighting Magomed Magomedov, Brett Johns vs James Gallagher, Sergio Pettis vs Raufeon Stots. I can literally make a LONG list of matches because how stacked the division is.

Casual fans, Yes even them will truly appreciate the talent of the Bantamweight fighters. What they bring to the cage. High level fighting at it’s finest.

Depending on the Covid-19 situation invite Kyoji Horiguchi Rizin Bantamweight Bantamweight Champion, Kai Asakura Former Rizin Bantamweight Champion to the Grand Prix which would be SICK to watch. Makes the Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix even more interesting… Seeing who the #1 Bellator Bantamweight is and one of the best Bantamweights in the world.

Keep An Eye On Sung Bin Jo PFL Newly Signed

Professional Fighters League fast rising MMA promotion 2020 season was stalled because of Covid-19, 2021 is a new year and PFL returns. Peter Murray PFL Chief Executive Officer and Ray Sefo PFL Promoter. PFL signed new fighters to add to the 2021 roster such as Fabricio Werdum, Cezar Ferreira and Anthony Pettis.

Underrated PFL signing is South Korean MMA star Sung Bin Jo. 9-1 record at 28 years old, Released after one fight in the UFC. Confusing to me because he’s a world class Featherweight, Competing in a stacked PFL Featherweight division.

Sung Bin Jo is one of the best Asian prospects pound for pound and this a great signing for PFL to build long term. Picture seeing Sung Bin Jo build the brand of the Professional Fighters League in Asia.

“I understand that the PFL is broadcast not only in English, but also in Spanish in the United States, so I plan to show everyone that Asians can compete at this level as well,” Jo said. “I will try to make Asian-Americans interested in the PFL after they see my performance there.”

“I am the first Korean to sign a contract with the PFL. I will set a good precedent by succeeding in the PFL, so that other Korean fighters can also dream and aspire to be on this stage and say ‘I want to be on big events like Sung Bin Jo’,” he concluded.

https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/professional-fighters-league/south-koreas-sung-bin-jo-hopes-to-draw-in-asian-american-fans-as-he-takes-his-talents-to-pfl/

South Korean successful fighters like Korean Zombie, Dong Hyun Kim, Doo Ho Choi and now Sung Bin Jo.

Sung Bin Jo definitely capable of having a successful 2021 PFL season with wins against Alex Gilpin, Sheymon Moraes but defeating the elite wrestlers like Lance Palmer and Bubba Jenkins. Reaching into the PFL Featherweight semi-finals.

Top striker out of the PFL Featherweights and the entire PFL roster.

Will see what happens possibly can challenge for the PFL Featherweight Title because of his athleticism, Powerful punching power. Overall PFL signed a star and in the next couple years can be argued as one of the best Featherweights non UFC.

Fighting is in our DNA
