5 More United States Prospects to Watch

Rodney Kealohi

Rodney Kealohi Next Generation of Jackson Wink MMA, Flyweight at 26 years old with a 5-1 record is a rising Flyweight prospect who made his Legacy Fighting Alliance debut at LFA 92. Under the radar prospect but will breakout in 2021. Exciting kickboxing fighting style that will lead to UFC marketing a sweet leg kick knockout from a LFA fight.

Matt Dixon

Matt Dixon one of the best United States prospects last couple years, Fought on the Dana White Contender Series but lost to Orion Cosce. Definitely will return to the Dana White contender series in 2021. Win the LFA Welterweight Title or defeat a talented Welterweight prospect, No doubt he’ll get an opportunity. Reminds me of Kamaru Usman, Robbie Lawler, Colby Covington because of his world class wrestling. Add some smooth striking and he’ll be a problem for everyone.

Adli Edwards

Adli Edwards, Former All-American wrestler at Ashland University that shows in his fights as he dominates his opponents with wrestling. Adli Edwards is one of the best Featherweight prospects in the United States. Defeating Lance Lawrence for the HRMMA Featherweight Title. Yes he’s a dominant wrestler but his striking is underrated and it will get better as time goes on.

Nate Richardson

Nate Richardson world class Kickboxer who fights for Glory Kickboxing while doing MMA. One of the best Featherweight prospects from the Midwest who fights for Legacy Fighting Alliance. 8-2 record. Will see Richardson get an opportunity to fight on the Dana White Contender Series.

Richard Palencia

Richard Palencia undefeated flyweight with 8-0 record at 30 years old. Trains out of the MMA Lab, One of the most underrated MMA gyms in the world. Most impressive win was against Kevin Wirth at LFA 44. Winning the LFA Flyweight Title definitely help on the road to the UFC, Bellator or One Championship.
