Apti Bimarzaev

Wins over Luis Palomino( Fought Justin Gaethje WSOF) #6 ACA Featherweight Tural Ragimov. Riding high 13 fight winning streak and now close to challenging the ACA Featherweight title.

Sambo fighting style, Easy avoiding shots but needs to be careful when fighting for a MAJOR 4 promotion where he’ll get hit hard.

However he’s a world class fighter and will give many fighters problems because of his grappling ability, Defensive striking. Pressuring the center of the ring.

Andrey Goncharov

Gradually rising up the Russian ranks now an upcoming Featherweight prospect. Riding high on a five fight winning streak. Knocking out opponents or putting on dominant impressive performances.

“I know it wasn’t the best performance, but I did that same thing with Yaroslav and made him the most exhausted he’s ever been,” said Storley. “That’s kind of my style, is grinding and adding more implements to it, to be more explosive and get damage. But he knows how deep I took him into those waters, and had him in trouble, and [Douglas] Lima didn’t do that to him.”

https://cagesidepress.com/2021/08/22/bellator-265-logan-storley-welterweight/

“I’m not looking to fight him for 15 minutes. I’m looking to finish this kid. I want to go out there and make a statement. Normally, I like to beat the hell out of guys. I’ll grind them out and make them regret taking the fight, as you saw with Jim Miller. I tried to finish him, but Jim Miller is a hard guy to finish. I wasn’t able to finish him, so I just bruted him like I normally do. ” https://mmasucka.com/2021/08/15/vinc-pichel-vs-austin-hubbard/

38 years old facing off the former LFA Lightweight Champion… Austin Hubbard the 29 year old fighter.

“I believe this is going to be a three-round war and one of those fights that has Fight of the Night potential,” he continued. “I’m confident where I’m at that I’m going to win that three-round war, but I’m definitely not taking this challenge lightly. From the fights I’ve watched and the things I’ve seen, he’s going to be there, he’s going to be bringing it, and I’m just really looking forward to this challenge.”

Kai Kamaka Testing Free Agency

Kai Kamaka testing free agency after his UFC contract expiring. Smart move for the young Featherweight who had a tough go fighting for UFC. 1-2-1 UFC so far.

Fight of the Night against Tony Kelley, “Loss” against TJ Brown. Judges messed up the scoring on this fight many people think Kai Kamaka won, Kai Kamaka looked very good.

“Tomorrow we will be filing an appeal for the blatantly horrible decision against Kai Kamaka,” Kamaka’s manager Brian Butler wrote in a statement released to MMA Fighting. “I don’t believe I have seen one media outlet that gave that fight to TJ and from what I understand even TJ and his team say they didn’t win. There is little to no recourse on these judges not being able to do their jobs properly and for a fighter like Kai who moved his entire household from Hawaii to pursue this career, it’s simply not right.

https://www.mmamania.com/2021/5/2/22416506/kai-kamakas-team-plans-to-appeal-split-decision-loss-to-tj-brown-ufc-vegas-25

Bad luck against Danny Chavez deducting a point because of a low blow in Round 2. Judges messed this one up too, Kai Kamaka won this fight as well. Congratulations to the GREAT judges.

Finish 10-3 with UFC right now if judges scored it right but anyway time for Kamaka to test free agency and see his real value.

Any MMA promotion can sign this talented Hawaiian Featherweight, Building up the featherweight division and become a promotional rising star.

If I was Brian Butler(Kai Kamaka manager) I’d have him sign somewhere besides UFC. Time to win a Featherweight title outside the UFC and make a high earning salary as well.

Attracting the UFC to sign him seeing the radical improvements in his GAME.

“I mean on a legit update I would say it’s between Bellator and PFL right now.” I’m just gonna say I have a deal done and it was done literally the same day that the UFC decided that they weren’t gonna renegotiate.” Kai Kamaka answers on the Touch Em up podcast

Sign with Bellator or PFl facing TALENTED Featherweights every fight. Returning to Bellator in the STACKED Bellator Featherweight division, Building his name on SHOWTIME. Making money fighting in the cage and earning extra money from sponsors.

I called him out and then I’d seen him in an elevator, and then I was like, ‘Hey, man, I called you out a couple of weeks ago. I’m just trying to get in. Whoever I could fight.’ He hit me up on social media and was like, ‘Would you be interested in some cross training?’ And I was like, ‘F*ck yeah.’

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2021/08/bellator-264-raufeon-stots-trained-for-magomed-magomedov-fight-with-cory-sandhagen

“I’m going to go out there and prove it.”

Before ever stepping inside the ring Stots was a NCAA D2-All American wrestler at Nebraska-Kearney for 2012 and 2013. Defending Magomedov’s wrestling, Grappling ability.

I genuinely have NO CLUE who WINS this fight, Both fighters have there advantages in some aspects but the matchup is perfect. I can’t wait for this fight sit on the couch and watch a high level fight. Two ferrets fighting inside the cage!!

Rafael Fiziev

#1 choice is the rising Lightweight, Former Muay Thai Champion Rafael Fiziev. Entering this featuring prelim fight on a three fight winning streak and facing a MMA veteran Bobby Green. Fighting since the Strikeforce days and made a big name for himself during COVID.

GREAT TEST for Fiziev to see what he’s truly made of. Fight in the right direction. PERFECT spot for a young hungry fighter to build his name on a Pay Per View card.

“This guy is very tough. He started to fight a long time ago and he has big experience. I respect all this and I respect him. But I don’t think that he has more experience than me because I have big experience in amateur fights, won them all. I’m on a good road.”

Manel Kape

Former Rizin Bantamweight Champion is 0-2 with UFC. One more chance for Kape to impress the UFC or he’s gonna be CUT from the UFC. One of the biggest UFC signings in recent years, Being the Rizin Bantamweight Champion is an accomplishment that easily attracted the UFC to sign him.

Kape has all the talent in the world but he needs to have the same confidence he had fighting for RIZIN as one of there biggest stars. Kape isn’t getting dominated biggest problem with him is striking more, Not being afraid to let it GO.

“I love watching him fight, He’s a savage, He’s a beast he’s gonna be a problem I just hope that that he gets used to the cage.” Muhammad Lawal interview with Mike Swick

“Everybody say that they can stand with me but when they feel my hands they want to shoot some takedowns… I don’t believe that we are the same level. I need to respect his left hand. He has power in his left hand, he has shown already at featherweight. But I’ve been fighting with fighters who have a lot of power in hands and nobody never knocked me down. I’m really focused for this fight and I believe I will knock out him.”

Miles Johns

UFC prospect I’m high on fights in the Bantamweight division. Explosive Bantamweight tank built like Chad Mendes. Trains at the Texas Powerhouse Gym Fortis MMA owned by former NBA All-Star Deron Williams and ran by Sayif Saud.

Facing the experienced 21-8 Anderson dos Santos. Hopefully with a win with against dos Santos there’s a winning streak and a rising year for Miles Johns. Rewarded with a bonus tonight definitely deserves the 50k’s.

Johnny Munoz Jr

Former King of the Cage Bantamweight Champion “lost” to Nate Maness in his UFC debut. I disagreed with the decision really believe Munoz Jr won the fight, Shocked by the decision but tonight we can see FIRST UFC win.

He sees plenty of advantages for himself in this fight and is envisioning a big finish to get himself in the win column.
