Europe’s MMA prospects to Watch 2021

Salahdine Parnasse

Salahdine Parnasse KSW Featherweight Champion, One of KSW biggest stars is EASILY one of the BEST Featherweights in the world. Only 23 years old 14-0 record will continue to get better and show why he’s one of the best fighters. Gained my attention and respect when Parnasse defeated Ivan Buchinger(Former M1 Featherweight Champion, Cage Warriors Lightweight Champion). What’s exciting is Parnasse loves fighting for KSW because of the treatment as a star. KSW will have a loyal fighter showing the world he might be the best Featherweight in the world. Next fight for Parnasse is against Daniel Torres(Top 10 European Featherweight) at KSW 58.

Khusein Askhabov

Khusein Askhabov why in the world he isn’t a UFC or Bellator fighter is beyond my imagination. Impressive undefeated of 23-0 , Number one European Bantamweight prospect. WWFC Bantamweight Champion defeating some tough fighters with his all around skills. Finishing opponents in the early rounds with his world class grappling. Khusein Askhabov trains at both Tiger Muay Thai and American Top Team, Maybe Mike Brown, Dustin Poirier or Masvidal can spread the word. Love to see Askhabov sign with UFC, Compete against the best Bantamweights in the world.

Muhammad Mokaev

Muhammad Mokaev next generation of MMA, Future UFC Bantamweight Champion. Before fighting for UFC is fighting for Brave Combat Federation and Celtic Gladiator. Mokaev 4-0 at 20 years old, Looking forward to his 2021 campaign. Excited to see him fight high level opponents.

Mochamed Machaev

Mochamed Machaev Brave CF Featherweight prospect, Top 5 European Featherweight prospect will an exciting future ahead of him with a record of 10-0 at 21 years old. Successful career at XFN and Brave Combat Federation. Impressive last win against Shoaib Yousaf(7-2 record) at Brave CF 40. Grappling machine with B + striking. Only get better as time goes on. In for a treat watching Machaev in 2021.

Uros Jurisic

Future KSW Welterweight Champion Uros Jurisic, Former Titan FC Welterweight Champion. 11-0 record at 28 years old. Don’t be surprised if he challenges for the KSW Welterweight Title and defeats one of the best Welterweights in the world in Roberto Soldic. Finding a new home at KSW.

Jonas Magard

Jonas Magard 12-4 record 28 years old, One of the most underrated European prospects. Born and raised Denmark, Not really a hot spot for MMA talent but Magard can make Denmark MMA known. Wins at Cage Warriors, ACB, BAMMA and current FEN Bantamweight Champion.

Benoit Saint Denis

Benoit Saint Denis nickname is the God of War for a reason, 6-0 record. Grappling machine, Built like a tank. Trains at one of the most underrated gyms in the world at Bulgarian Top Team. Fights at Brave Combat Federation. Don’t expect Benoit Saint Denis to be in the UFC in 2020 but next couple years will move up the European Welterweight Rankings.

Mateusz Legierksi

Mateusz Legierksi Czech Republic, Eastern Europe Welterweight prospect 7-0 record at at 24 years old. Former Oktagon Welterweight Champion and now fights for KSW. One win under the KSW banner.

Niko Samsonidse

Niko Samsonidse 9-1 record German Featherweight prospect that’s very underrated. Watching his fights on YouTube. Very nasty left hand. Volume striker. Only 26 years old, Maybe a year and a half will see Niko fight for the UFC or Bellator. Fighting for promotions like Cage Warriors, KSW, Oktagon, Brave CF will help build Niko’s recognition. Bet few people know about him, However he has that potential to be a UFC or Bellator Featherweight Title contender. Switching to a top European gym or heading to American Top Team, Kings MMA will help with his progression.
