Igeu Kabesa is the Top Featherweight Prospect Africa has right now. Igeu besides being one of the top African Prospects is one of the top Featherweights in the world!! Igeu Kabesa without a doubt will be in the UFC, Bellator, One Championship or Professional Fighters League. Igeu is something special, The next future CHAMPION to come out of Africa!!

2 submission wins
#1 ranked South African Featherweight Champion
“My biggest test I would say was Peter Queally. He was bigger and I think his training with Conor makes his game hard. But I love hard fights.” Igeu Kabesa
Igeu Kabesa back in 2015 beat Bellator Fighter Peter Queally and Conor’s SBG Teammate.
The Congo’s Igeu Kabesa (12-1) defended his EFC featherweight title for the sixth time at EFC 79 last night against Croatia’s Karlo Caput (8-1),Croatia’s Caput entered the bout with an impressive undefeated 8-0 record, and a sensational five second knock out at his last outing. The featherweight champion Kabesa, with only one defeat in his career, was confident throughout the build up to the bout, and backed his word inside the fight.
Give it a couple morefights and Igeu Kabesa will be getting a call from Dana White, Telling Igeu your going to fight in the Dana White Contender Series. Maybe Scott Coker calls Igeu telling him he wants to sign him!! Igeu has so many options as he’ll have a bright future ahead of him, in the future Main Eventing an event in South Africa for UFC or Bellator.
Overall check Kabesa out on YOUTUBE becausehe’sgoing to be somethingspecialI truly believe that!! Future UFC or Bellator FeatherweightChampion!!
Lance Palmer and Andre Harrison are the top Featherweights the Professional Fighters League has. Lance Palmer is last years PFL Featherweight Champion and Andre Harrison has beat Lance Palmer in the past. Palmer is the #1 PFL Featherweight and #2 is Andre Harrison. I see Palmer vs Harrison as the PFL Featherweight Title Fight, Fighting for the Million Dollar Prize again!!
“We said it a million times but it bears repeating. Wrestling is the greatest skill to have in MMA because wrestling dictates where the fight takes place. On top of that, amateur wrestling training is so unbelievably grueling that the guys who get through it are the guys who rise to the top are the elite of the elite when it comes to mental toughness. That is a huge part of fighting. Mental toughness and focus and the ability to work hard to achieve goals under exceedingly insurmountable circumstances.” Joe Rogan
LancePalmerwrestled for Ohio State and he was a 4 Time All American while at Ohio State. Palmer has the ability to control the fight because of his world class wrestling. LancePalmerdominates his opponents in the PFL Ring and he’ll continue to do that. By far has the best wrestling on the PFL Roster.
Lance Palmerhas won the PFL Featherweight Twice and he’ll be looking to make it a third!!! However Andre Harrison is no joke, Harrison beat Palmer on WSOF 35 in 2017.
“In my mind, anyone that knows me in the sense that, anyone that’s trained with me or fought me or whatever the case may be that’s been there throughout the course of my career, they know that I am one of the best featherweights on the planet,” Harrison said. “That’s just hands down. There’s no way you can tell me if you turn up the rankings that there’s gonna be 20 other guys that can beat me. There’s no way you can tell me that. In my mind, I’m the best featherweight on the planet hands down. I don’t care which fight league you’re talking about, I am the best featherweight, period. Every time I go out there I show that.” Andre Harrison
Harrison beat two future UFC Fighters in Desmond Green and Kurt Holobaugh and Harrison’s only loss of his career was against Lance Palmer.
Lance Palmer vs Andre Harrison Ibelieve will be the PFLFeatherweight Title Fight, Two of the best Featherweights on the planet fighting, Great for the fighters to showcase there talents and skills on ESPN andgreat for the PFL to have TWO of there best fighters going at it for the million dollar prize.

One Championship is trying to compete and be the #1 MMA Organization in the world instead of the UFC. One of the ways One Championship is able to be the best MMA promotion in the world is to sign the best talent in the world, Started doing that already with signing Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez. What are some PERFECT fighters for ONE Championship?
I don’tthink until Jon Jones moves up to lightheavyweight, He’ll neverbe UFC light heavyweightchampion. Perfect for him to head to One Championship and become the One Championship Light Heavyweight Champion.

Barboza vs Folayang

In the evening’s co-main event, KSW Welterweight champion, Roberto Soldic (15-3), looks to defend his title against the undefeated, Krystian Kaszubowski (7-0). https://whoatv.com/roberto-soldic-talks-ksw-title-defence-du-plessis-and-training-with-
“Soldic is a mirror image of Cro Cop but a far more finely-tuned and well-conditioned athlete in my opinion.”
Hardy describes the 22-year-old as “a big, powerful welterweight” and draws another comparison to current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
In Croatia, they think they have found the second coming ofMirko Cro Cop, but despite the great respect Soldic has for the Pride legend, he wants to forge his own path in the sport.
“Now, more people talk,” he explained.
“In Poland, now they talk about me. In USA, in England and in my country, in the Balkans and Croatia, I see my name in the papers. They say I am young Cro Cop but I don’t like this; I do like Mirko Cro Cop a lot, but I want to be myself.
UFC Heavyweight Division is not how it used to be with Cain Velasquez, Junior Dos Santos, Fabrício Werdum, Randy Couture, Brock Lesnar and Tim Sylvia. Don’t get me wrong there’s great heavyweights like Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou but not like the good ole days. Brett Martin a 25 Year old, Top 10 Heavyweight Prospect!!
25 years old
Lights Out Championship Heavyweight
Total Warrior Combat Heavyweight Championship
#1 Michigan Heavyweight
#15 U.S Heavyweight
Brett Martin made an impression when he beat former Contender Series winner and TUF 28 competitor, Josh Parisian. Martin stopped Parisian in the first-round by submission. He is first and foremost a wrestler and has displayed his strength by being able to lift guys and slam them to the mat. Once on top, he is staying there as he knows how to use his weight but avoids lay and pray. Martin has very good ground-and-pound, and on the feet, he does have knockout power but relies on his wrestling
Miranda Granger is fighting for the Cage Fury Fighting Strawweight Championship on May 25th against Heloisa Azevedo. Cage Fury Fighting Championship is one of the best regional promotions in the world. Miranda Granger is one of the best women prospects in the United States.

This is a great fight with history at stake and Spotlight 29 is the perfect venue for a bout of this caliber.”
Nate Andrews, CES MMA Lightweight Champion making his PFL Debut on the second event for The Professional Fighters League. Nate Andrews has been in the fight game for a long time, Fighting for regional promotions but never got his big show fights until NOW!!
“Dana White, UFC: Give me my contract,” Andrews said. “I earned it. I’m 15-1 with 15 finishes. Nobody on your roster has that. Give me my shot. Give me my chance at the 155 division. And I promise you I will continue to keep doing the same thing I do in the CES cage. And that’s come out, perform, finish fights, and hype the crowd up.”
Sadly Dana White never gave Andrews the title shot but Andrews has the chance to win the million dollar prize. Nate Andrews is my pick to win the PFL Lightweight Title. He’s the best lightweight fighter PFL has.
35 years old
Andrews is the co-main event for PFL #2. He’ll definitely put on a show!!
AJ McKee Jr won his 14th fight against Pat Curran on Bellator 221.
The 24-year-old phenom improved to 14-0 with a shutout decision over former champion Pat Curran on the main card of Bellator 221 in Rosemont, Illinois. It was hardly a scintillating performance in terms of action, but it was a composed, complete showing from McKee as he landed the better strikes and did more damage on the ground. Curran was busted up from elbows from the bottom in round two, and just didn’t have answers for McKee’s control of range and ability to cover distance so quickly.
AJ McKee on the main card for Bellator 221, Scott Coker build this young hungry lion as AJ is arguably #1 Contender for the Bellator Featherweight Title!! AJ McKee has beat everybody he’s been put up against and it’s definitely time to match him up against Patricio Pitbull!!
“I’ve been calling out [Freire’s] belt since day one,” McKee said during the Bellator 221 media call last week. “I don’t know why Patricio is fighting Chandler. That don’t really make sense.”
Pitbull beat Michael Chandler, Knocking him out in the first round in the main event at Bellator 221. AJMcKee is next in line Ibelieve and the Bellator Commentators believe as well.
McKee vs Pitbull will be a fantastic main event for Bellator in 2019!! Make McKee a HUGE STAR!! Bellator Definitely needs themright now!!
In the fall of 2019 this fight can happen!!
24 years old
19 win streak counting amateur fights
4 submission wins
The sky is the limit for McKee, Already at 24 years oldhe’s a number one contender for Bellator and has 14 wins with Bellator. Scott Coker knows he‘ll be a star and McKee knows as well.

Sage Northcutt was this STAR in the making in the UFC, First Fighter signed on Dana White Looking for a fight. The first episode got a million views and Dana probably visualized a UFC Title wrapped around his waist. Sage instead of UFC Title a ONE Champion Title will be wrapped around his waist. The climb to the title starts now against Cosmo Alexandre!!!
“I’m always looking to go for the finish. I love striking, and Cosmo Alexandre is a great striker, so it will be fun getting to strike with a great striker. I know ONE Championship will love that, and I’m looking forward to putting on a great show doing that. I’m going to fight smart, too,” said Northcutt. “I’m so excited, and it’s going to be so much fun. I can’t wait to get out there.”
The fight against Cosmo Alexandre is a decent fight for him as Alexandre is a world class Muay Thai Fighter!! Fight to watch to see how far Sage has progressed since his last fight in the UFC. See if Sage has the potential, The Skills and the Talent to be a One Championship Welterweight Champion.
I hope Sage maximizes his potential with One Championship as they have a real star in there hands!! Be sick to see that happen and GREAT for One Championship.

“I called out Christian [Lee]because I think he is the best, not only in Asia, but also in the world. He is a hungry young lion and very dangerous,” said Aoki.
“Now is the best time to hunt the lion down. I’ve trained with him in the past and we know each other well. He’s very strong, fast and explosive. Our styles match up quite well and I think this is going to be a good challenge for me.”
Jeremy Kennedy had a 3-1 record with the UFC before being cut, Losing to Alexander Volkanovski. However Jeremy is 26 years old with a lot of potential and The PFL snatched him away from Bellator or One Championship!!

The Canadian competed twice for Brave in 2018, picking up two knockout wins; his incredible one-punch knockout over Marat Magomedov in December highlights his ability to finish a fight.

Tony Ferguson hasn’t been fighting since UFC 229 because of mental issues. His wife filed a restraining order on him because she was worried for his safety.
“Tony Ferguson is a good husband and good father to our son. The current legal proceedings are part of a process to ensure that Tony will receive the help necessary to continue being the best possible husband and father, as well as to pursue his passion and career as a UFC champion fighter.”
Tony Fergusonrecently had a meeting with Dana White and he’s medically cleared to fight. Dana White recently had a meeting withConor McGregor in Las Vegas. Wondering if Conor vs Tony is a fight that will happen, Dana setting this up for a huge main event in Las Vegas.
Fight makes sense as Conor hasn’t fought since UFC 229 as well because of suspensions, Getting arrested and running his proper whiskey business. Both Conor and Tony occasionally trash talk to each other on twitter, Tony calling Conor “McNugget.”
Khabib vs Poirier is happening in September, UFC 242 in Dubai. In October that’s when Conor Vs Tony will happen or maybe will happen. Gives Conorand Tony enough time to promote the fight and train. The winner of Conor vs Tony faces the winner of Khabib vs Poirier. It’s a 4 fighter tournament without being declared one.
Helps the Lightweight Division out as it’s in chaos right now and maybe these 4 fights will help the Lightweight Division. Understanding where Conor is at right now, How many fights does he TRULY have and is Tony medically healthy!!
Overall hope Tony vs Conor will happenbecauseit’s a fight lots of mma fans have been waiting for and without a doubt will be a funfight to watch.
According to Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz, he’s been tasked with setting up a very busy bout schedule with the UFC for his client.
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s agent said the star fighter wants to defend his UFC lightweight title three times in the next 11 months, reports ESPN.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is a star nowafter beating Conor McGregor. Khabib is one of the fewstars in the UFC and the UFC needs to be active, Luckily he wants to be. In Seventh Months he’ll fight three times. Who Should Khabib Fight ?
Khabib vs Tony Ferguson
Khabib vs Tony is a fight that needs to happen. Fans want to see it as Tony will be a incredibly tough fight for Khabib. Tony is actually a college wrestler and has the cardio to compete against Khabib. However Tony Ferguson is going through mental issues right now, He needs to be cleared to fight.
Khabib vs Cerrone
Khabib vs Donald Cerrone will be a fun fight to watch as Cerrone is a killer. Cerrone on a nice three win streak beating “Raging” Al Iaquinta. Top 5 opponent.
“My name’s in the hat for [Nurmagomedov or Poirier] for sure if one of them fall out. But like I said, I left here [ranked No. 2 at lightweight] and I didn’t go anywhere,” Cerrone said. “So people ask me where should I be ranked, I don’t care about ranking. I should beat these guys, I feel like I’m the best in the world. I feel like that’s where I belong and for the UFC not to give me a title shot, I would step back and I would be thoroughly disappointed. Like, wow, a guy who’s done all this for the sport, I don’t trash talk, I go in there and I deliver every time and you’re going to overlook me for somebody else. I’d be really upset like, wow, that’s the company work for?
Khabib vs George St Pierre
“He said he wants to fight Sept. 7, and again in December. And if Georges St-Pierre can figure things out with the UFC by April, that’s the deal. He would like that fight in April.”
Khabib vs GSP is a dream fight. Watch Khabib fight GSP arguably the greatest mma fighter of all time. See how good Khabib truly is. Hope this fight really happens. Without will be a box office success.
Khabib vs Justin Gaethje
Khabib vs Justin Gaethje isn’t a easy fight for Khabib. Justin has a high motor and a NCAA All American Wrestler. Justin enters that Octagon to put on a war for the fans and kill. This is a incredibly tough fight for Khabib I don’t know what the end result will be. Khabib can lose against Justin!!
“My ability to stop takedowns (would make me a bad matchup),” Gaethje said. “I am a Division 1 wrestler. I was a Division 1 All-American, I placed seventh in 2010 and my ability to scramble and avoid takedowns is something he’s never faced. And the power. He’s faced the power, but never with the ability to stop takedowns and scramble. The combination of the two.
