Gunnar Nelson Perfect Home One Championship

Gunnar Nelson , UFC Welterweight and we’ll known as a teammate of Conor Mcgregor has struggled of late. Unable to get a solid win streak since 2014. Maybe it’s time for a different scenery and heading over to One Championship.

One Championship will be perfect for Gunnar Nelson since he’s more of a grappler Fighter, Looking to control where the fight goes with the least amount of damage.

One Championship and Asia MMA Fans in general appreciate Mix Martial Arts. Won’t boo if a fight goes to the ground. Gunnar Nelson will never have to appease the fans when he can be himself.

Gunnar Nelson can be himself as well by not trash talking, Nelson is the exact opposite of his teammate Conor Mcgregor. No need to trash talk and hype a fight up when it’s all about Honor and Respect.

Hope Gunnar Nelson heads to One Championship, Becomes the Welterweight Champion over there and makes a better living than fighting in the UFC.

Phil “Heartbreaker” Caracappa Dana White Contender Series Season 3

Phil Caracappa, Ring of Combat Bantamweight Champion one of the best Bantamweight Prospects in the United States and the World should get an offer to fight on the Dana White Contender Series for Season 3.

Caracappa defended his Bantamweight Title Three Times for Ring of Combat. Ring of Combat one of the best Regional promotions.

“Pressure makes diamonds and that is how I perform.  I’m best in those pressure situations.  I’m ready for the challenge in front of 20 or 30 thousand fans. Every one of my fights have been considered fight of the night.  My energy and will cannot be stopped.  Of course I would like that contract, but if it is a shot on The Contender Series, I am very confident that I will get it done.” https://mymmanews.com/louis-neglia-bill-algeo-phil-caracappa-ufc/

Caracappa is well deserved of the Contender Series contract. Caracappa beat the best fighter in his young career in John Sweeney, Sweeney had a record of 6-1 at that point.

Caracappa toughest fight of his career should be on the Contender Series as he faces another top Bantamweight Prospect. Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard should give Caracappa manager a call and offer him a fight on the Contender Series.

Prospect to Watch #2 Brett Martin

Brett Martin is my Second Prospect to Watch for the Week because Martin is one of the best Heavyweight Prospects in the United States. Brett Martin is making his Legacy Fighting Alliance Debut against Renan Ferreira, LFA 70.

“He’s a very game opponent,” said Martin of Ferreira. “I’m getting a chance to fight a guy from another country it kind of jumps you into the world level. That’s why we do this to fight the best in the world.

“I’ve got a good resume, he’s got a good resume, and we’ve got a chance to do it for one of the best feeder leagues for the UFC, so it doesn’t get much better than this for a small town guy like me coming from Michigan.” https://mmacrazies.com/the-sky-is-the-limit-for-brett-martin-as-he-takes-aim-at-lfa-heavyweight-title/

All these guys have been with me since the beginning. Most of them came to me 1-0 or 2-0. It is really an organic thing. We are a gym where accountability is real thing. Everybody is there, everybody is at practice and because of that, we have put double-digit people in the UFC in the past year or 15 months. I don’t know anybody else who has done that. Not only are they going into the UFC but they are winning. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/exclusive-interviews/exclusive-sayif-saud-and-fortis-mma-are-no-longer-flying-under-the-radar/amp/

“By the end of 2017, we had five and then I said, ‘By the end of 2018, we’re going to have 10.’ I said that in January of 2017 and at the end of December 2018, I looked at everyone and said, ‘We now have 10 in the UFC.’” https://www.ufc.com/news/camp-update-fortis-mma

    Issac Hardman

    • 9-0 record
    • 23 years old

    • 6 KO’s

    Hardman is arguably the most UFC-ready prospect coming out of Australia right now and he’s somehow only 23-years-old. Hardman is a killer with all seven of his finishes by TKO/KO. The power in his hands is ridiculous along with impeccable hand speed and accuracy. Hardman is predominantly a striker, but he has solid takedown defense and has showcased big ground-and-pound. He’s the reigning XFC and Australian FC champion and with a win or two, Hardman will make his debut in the UFC. He was on my list last year but was sidelined for the duration of 2018 due to an injury. https://cagesidepress.com/2019/01/18/10-lightweights-ufc-sign-2019/2/

    Issac Hardman at 23 years old probably will be signed by the UFC it’s impossible for the UFC to let Issac sign somewhere else!!

Hopefully after this fight some doors will be opened for me.” https://www.mmaweekly.com/solo-hatley-sets-sights-on-ufc-or-bellator-by-years-end-as-he-heads-into-lfa-67

    If Hatley gets signed by the end of the year UFC or Bellator will have a star on there hands, Hatley is only 22 years old and has so much room to grow. At 25 or 26 years old Hatley will have add so many skills to his fighting craft!!

    Don’t hear Eric Del Fiero’s name a lot in the mma world!! His name should be talked about a lot more, Coaching some of the best MMA Fighters in the world that became UFC/Bellator Champions!!

    Chula Vista’s Alliance MMA team is more than a team. It truly is an unbreakable unit thanks to Del Fierro which has only motivated several of the very best fighters in the world today to strive towards their goals in ways they possibly wouldn’t have been able to do so without. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/exclusive-interviews/exclusive-eric-del-fierro-defining-alliance/amp/

    Eric Del Fierro Fighters

    Eric Del Fierro coaching stable speaks for itself, Dominick Cruz and Brandon Vera been training at Alliance MMA since the beginning.

    Del Fierro being one of the most underrated coaches in the game has become somewhat a common opinion amongst MMA pundits. So if that’s what everyone thinks, does that really mean that he’s still underrated?

    “I actually never really think about it,” Del Fierro told BJPenn.com when responding to whether or not he feels he gets proper recognition. “It all goes back to why you do what you do. We all have our own things that make us tick and whether I’m coaching an amateur fighter or whether I’m coaching a pro at the highest level, the satisfaction comes from seeing these guys reach their goals and just win by win, just watching them create these results. And that’s where I get my satisfaction from. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/exclusive-interviews/exclusive-eric-del-fierro-defining-alliance/amp/

    Time to show that Eric Del Fierro is one of the best MMA Coaches in the world, Coaching a UFC/MMA Legend in Dominick Cruz and a Bellator Legend in Michael Chandler. Don’t coach champions without being a world class coach and Del Fierro is definitely is one!!

    Cross Promotion KSW vs One Championship Partnership please

    Bellator and Rizin are cross promoting starting with Kyoji Horiguchi vs Darrion Caldwell. Kyoji Horiguchi beating Darrion Caldwell twice, Kyoji is the Bantamweight Champion!!

    Cross-promotion and talent sharing is a big part of Rizin’s philosophy, which is why Sakakibara said he named it Rizin Fighting Federation. “Federation,” by definition, is a group of entities. Sakakibara’s ideology is that MMA will be able to advance only if promotions work together. His end goal is a World Cup of MMA every four years, where all of the big companies’ athletes compete to truly determine the best fighters in the world. He would like to get the athletes’ countries involved in directly supporting them. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.espn.com/mma/story/_/id/26951089/bellator-rizin-proving-cross-promotion-healthy-mma%3fplatform=amp

    Cross Promoting Trend…

    Hope Cross Promoting becomes a trend because it will make MMA a lot more GLOBAL and promotions a lot more POPULAR. Bellator vs Rizin is a MAJOR moment for MMA History for it being the first of its kind!! Truly hope this Cross Promoting won’t be the last!!

    One Championship vs KSW

    One Championship vs KSW will be perfect Cross Promotion to make. KSW is a SUPER Underrated MMA Promotion in POLAND and One Championship a Top 3 MMA Promotion. KSW has the top fighters not in the UFC/Bellator as you can watch KSW on DAZN.

    Helps out KSW attract millions of new fans who have no idea what KSW is. KSW will leverage this opportunity to grow there promotion WORLDWIDE. One Championship brings there fighters to Poland and Europe to gain notoriety over there, Seeing If they gain interest over there!!

    Fights you can Make!!

    Phil De Fries KSW Heavyweight Champion vs Brandon Vera One Heavyweight Champion

    Tomasz Narkun KSW Light Heavyweight Champion vs Aung LA N Sang One Light Heavyweight Champion

    Mateusz Gamrot KSW Lightweight Champion vs Eddie Alvarez

    Mateusz Gamrot vs Christian Lee One Lightweight Champion

    Roberto Soldic KSW Welterweight Champion vs Yushin Okami

    Salahdine Parnasse KSW Featherweight Champion vs Martin Nyugen One Featherweight Champion

    Scott Askham KSW Middleweight Champion vs Vitor Belfort

    Norman Parke vs Yushin Okami

    Summary

    One Championship vs KSW should Continue the trend of cross promotions. It will be a major success with Champion vs Champion, DAZN will increase subscribers. One Championship gets a new market in Europe and KSW gets one in Asia!!

    One Championship Should Build Up There Heavyweight Division

    Heavyweight Champion of the World are always the stars when the Heavyweight Champion are pound for pound best. Fedor Emelianenko was a GOD, King of Japan and King of Russia when he was the Pride Heavyweight Champion. Pride when they were around had the best Heavyweight Division with Fedor, Cro Cop, Nogueira, Heath Herring and Dan Henderson. One Championship should do the same.

    One Championship should build the Best Heavyweight Roster possible because MMA Fans and casual fans love a Heavyweight Clash when we see one. Nothing is better than watching two Heavyweights in the prime of there career fighting for the Heavyweight Championship.

    One Championship signs the top Heavyweight Free Agents from UFC/Bellator and sign the top Heavyweight Prospects they’ll create the best Heavyweight Roster in the world. One Championship can will increase there popularity dramatically by having world class Heavyweight matches between former UFC Heavyweights and Heavyweight Prospects.

    Brandon Vera the One Championship Heavyweight Champion for example fights Junior Dos Santos in the Main Event that would be a huge fight for One Championship. Attracting to UFC Thousands or Millions of fans to watch the Heavyweight Clash!!

    One Championship should take advantage of what UFC is lacking right now which is a top Heavyweight Division. Do the best they can in creating a #1 Heavyweight Division which will increase there popularity dramatically and try to beat UFC.

    Joe Giannetti Ultimate Fighter Finalist 27 should be signed by Bellator, One Championship, PFL or Rizin!!

    Joe Giannetti was the Ultimate Fighter 27 Lightweight Finalist, Lost to Mike Triziano in the finale. Joe Giannetti would get released by the UFC never having the opportunity to fight in the UFC, Since being released has fought for Cage Titans three times. However is times to stop fighting in the regional mma scene and return fighting for a major promotion!!

    “They [the UFC] made a mistake letting me go,” Giannetti told FloCombat in an interview Monday. “I can’t talk anymore. All I can do is train. Everybody else, I ask them if they want to see me back in the Octagon, tag the UFC, tag Sean Shelby, tag Dana White. I’m going to train as hard as I can and put on badass fights. https://www.flocombat.com/articles/6240056-joe-giannetti-discusses-ufc-release-they-made-a-mistake-letting-me-go

    Joe Giannetti was the Ultimate Fighter Finalist for a reason because he’s a Stellar MMA Fighter with a lot of potential. Giannetti is only 23 years old not a 32 year old Journeyman Fighter with no more room to grow. If UFC( Dana White) unable to see Giannetti‘s potential another promotion will!!!

    No brainer for One Championship, Bellator, Rizin to sign Giannetti to a long term deal and build the KID into a Lightweight Champion.

    Joe Giannetti if he signed with Bellator can fight Michael Chandler, Benson Henderson, Pitbull Freire.

    Be sick to see Bellator, One Championship, , PFL, Rizin to have one of the best Lightweight Fighters in the world. Really hope these PROMOTIONS sign Giannetti!

    Regional MMA Promotions should Cross Promote !!

    In the United States and around the world there’s so many really good MMA Regional promotions, Having a stable of fighters that will become future UFC or Bellator Champions!! Regional Promotions won’t get the popularity like UFC has but they can definitely gain more interest, One of the ways is by Cross Promotion

    Bellator and Rizin are cross promoting and it’s going well for them!! Kyoji Horiguchi the Rizin Bantamweight Champion vs Darrion Caldwell the Bellator Bantamweight Champion fought each other!! They’re fighting again on Bellator 222.

    Be so smart for regional promotion to follow what Bellator and Rizin are doing. Benefits both promotions to showcase there Champions!!

    For example Legacy Fighting Alliance is the best Regional Promotion in the United States and Cage Warriors is the best Regional Promotion in Europe. Be an incredible accomplishment for MMA, For LFA and Cage Warriors. MMA fans would love to watch these two promotions cross promote!! LFA Champions fighting the Cage Warriors Champions.

    Cage Warriors would sell out a stadium in England in minutes!! Millions of people would watch the LFA vs Cage Warriors event because it’s something new in MMA never really seen before with Regional MMA promotions!!

    Benefits the fighters completely showcasing there talents in England for example or in the United States. Most mma fans don’t know who the LFA Champions are but if LFA or Cage Warriors would cross promote I think millions of people would!! Benefits the fighters as well to impress UFC or Bellator when the fighter beats one of the top Prospects in Europe or in the United States.

    Cross Promoting can help Regional Promotions gain more popularity, Helps the fighters getting millions of fans and the possibility of getting signed by UFC or Bellator.
