MMA talent consistently improving on a yearly basis, Fighters showcasing there talents on the regional scene, Dana White Contender Series. Made a list of MMA prospects from North America that under the radar instead of the Matt Dixon’s, Andre Quintana’s of the world. Really is so many under the radar prospects from here that will sign with a Top 3 Promotion in 2021.

Evan Elder

Evan Elder, Sanford MMA prospect. Elder 4-0 record at 23 years old. Three wins with Shamrock FC and latest win was at LFA 88. 2021 will be a significant year, Displaying impressive performances at whatever promotion he fights at. Coming from a wrestling and grappling background, Training his jiu jitsu at Nick Diaz Academy in Stockton. Evan Elder transition striking really improved in his LFA 88 fight.

2021 will be a breakout year for Evan Elder. Fights for Dana White Contender Series or signs with Bellator!!

Whether it be Shamrock or another organization, I’m going to conquer whoever they put in front of me until I get seen.”

Mo Miller

Mo Miller Strong Style Fight Team(Stipe Miocic Gym) Bantamweight prospect with 5-0 record at 28 years old. Division 2 All American wrestler at Notre Dame College. Dominant wrestling performances that lead to a viral slam knockout at LFA 96. Picture seeing the Bantamweight prospect fighting in the Dana White Contender Series or awarded a UFC contract.

Christian Rodriguez

Roufusport MMA Academy one of the best MMA Gyms in the world. Christian Rodriguez only 23 years old, 4-0 record. Two back to back wins with Legacy Fighting Alliance. Early finishes. Watch Rodriguez latest LFA 93 fight on https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=343759470064817&ref=watch_permalink. Rodriguez in his fight against John Pham looks like a seasoned veteran in there as he displayed an impressive performance.

2021 will see Christian Rodriguez hopefully fight on the Legacy Fighting Alliance Main Cards or any top regional promotion. This kid is really talented and will only improve from here. Breakout year in 2021.

Daniel Zellhuber

If you don’t know now you know Daniel Zellhuber is the next Mexican Superstar. Ryan Garcia of MMA. Everyone pays attention to top prospects from United States but pay attention to Mexico because of one name Daniel Zellhuber. Zellhuber 10-0 record at 21 years old built his recognition at Combate Americas. Muay Thai fighting style but incredibly raw just needs to train at a TOP MMA GYM like Sanford MMA, Kings MMA, Tristar Gym. Zellhuber is bound for greatness.

Zellhuber takes that next step in 2021 training at a top gym, Fighting for UFC/Bellator.

Kyran Cameron

Kyran Cameron All-Around Welterweight Canada prospect at 27 years old. One of the upcoming Welterweight prospects in CANADA. Fighting for BTC Fight Promotion(Ontario Promotion). Trains at rising Canada gym, Parabellum MMA with Anthony Romero, Aaron Jeffery.

Troy Green

Troy Green 4-0 Welterweight Northeast prospect, All wins fighting for Ring of Combat promotion. Leading to Troy Green becoming the ROC Welterweight Champion at ROC 71 after defeating John Ramirez. Even though Troy Green is the ROC Welterweight champ, He’s not ranked highly on /https://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/fighters/64128-troy-green. However in 2021 with big ROC wins against Northeast Welterweight prospects we can see him get recognition, Opportunity to fight for Dana White Contender Series.

Andre Bargquero Morera

Andre Barquero Morera Bantamweight prospect from Costa Rica is under the radar but watch out for him in 2021. Became aware of him when he fought Sean Santella(21-7 flyweight) for the CFFC Flyweight Title. Morera got dominated but showed me how courageous he was to accept that fight against a veteran. Morera now fights for Combate Americas but moved up to the Bantamweight weight class.

Morera in 2021 hopefully fights couple times, Rising up the Combate Americas Bantamweight division and wins the Bantamweight gold. 25 year old Costa Rican Bantamweight prospect keeps getting better as time goes on, No doubt in my mind will see Morera sign with the UFC or Bellator in the next couple years.

Carlos Matos

Carlos Matos #1 Caribbean Welterweight Prospect 8-0 record at 24 years old. One of the most underrated Welterweight prospects in North America. Long lengthy welterweight similar to Randy Brown and Michael Chiesa. Matos manager should do his best to schedule him fights with Combate Americas or a regional promotion like CFFC, LFA, ROC, Titan Fights, XFN to build his reputation more.

Elijah Johns

Elijah Johns, Miles Johns little brother is slowly making a name for himself. 5 fight winning streak with Legacy Fighting Alliance. Elijah is a Featherweight PITBULL, Leading to finishes under the LFA promotion. Right now has a 7-1 record but record will improve in 2021. Maybe winning a LFA Featherweight title by the end of 2021 or beginning of 2022.

Elijah Johns will be getting the call to the Dana White Contender Series for sure it’s just a matter of time but love to see him fight for LFA once or twice.

Jamie Siraj

One of the most under the radar North America prospects is Jamie Siraj who fights out of Canada. Yes trains at Tristar Gym with the Phil Jackson of MMA coaching…. Firas Zahabi. Fights for Rise FC promotion, Last time Siraj fought was in 2019. Cancelled fight with Chad Anheliger, Top Canada Featherweight prospect. Hopefully at Rise FC 6 we can see Siraj return and fight Chad Anheliger.

Genaro Valdez

Mexico always producing talented fighters and Genaro Valdez, 28 Year old Genaro Valdez is a rising Mexican Lightweight with a 6-0 record. Submission & grappling specialist that lead to rear naked choke wins. Valdez in his last two fights fought for Mexican promotion Lux Fight League. LFL you can watch on UFC Fight Pass. Valdez will be winning the Lux Fight League Lightweight Title in 2021.
