Eastern Europe region is a thriving talent pool of killers hungry to rise from the poverty areas looking to bring there families to way better lives. Fighting from the streets to the cage. Gradually becoming some of the best prospects in Eastern Europe.

Vladimir Mineev

Every hardcore MMA fan knows whose this Elite Russian Kickboxer is… The Israel Adesanya version of Russian Kickboxing. 24-2 Kickboxing Record, Multi-Time Kickboxing Champion. Currently 31 years old in the prime of his career.

Right now is the Fight Night Global Middleweight Champion, Mineev definitely should sign with UFC, Bellator, One Championship or Rizin in 2021. Compete against the best Middleweights or Light Heavyweights.

Imagine Vladimir Mineev vs Aung La Nsang!!

  • 31 years old
  • 15-1-1
  • Fight Nights Global Middleweight Champion
  • WAKO Kickboxing Champion

Roberto Soldic

Every hardcore fan and there mother aware of Roberto Soldic, He’s one of the best Welterweights in the world. KSW Welterweight Champion. Croatian Sensation, Biggest star since Mirko Cro Cop.

Why on earth he isn’t fighting for UFC or Bellator is beyond my understanding but maybe next few years can see Soldic sign with a top THREE PROMOTION.

Defeated current UFC fighter Driscuss Du Plessis, Decision loss to current Yaraslav Amosov.

  • 18-3 record
  • 26 years old
  • 5 Fight win Streak

  • 13-1 record
  • 28 years old
  • FEN LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION
  • 2x ADCC Polish BJJ champion
  • 5x FEN Lightweight Title defenses

Major Promotions definitely should sign this man, 28 years old, Finishing fights by KO or submission in the early rounds. Defeating quality opponents, Defending his title multiple times. He deserves a opportunity to show his skills to the world.

Khusein Askhabov

IMPRESSIVE undefeated record of 23-0, Russian Monster. One of my favorite MMA prospects around the world. Finally getting his opportunity for the UFC fighting on the Dana White Contender Series facing off a top Brazilian prospect Joanderson Brito.

All-Around SPECIAL Talent, Aggressive, Smart fighter whose going to kill everyone in the UFC Bantamweight Division.

Adrian Bartosiński

Rising 11-0 Polish Welterweight, Newcomer for KSW #1 Polish Promotion and European Promotion. One of the best Eastern Europe Welterweights, Future KSW Welterweight Title contender.

Vugar Karamov

Continue to keep talking about this fighter from Azerbaijan. Fighting for Rizin right now building his name out there. Lost his last fight against Yutaka Saito 15-4 record at Rizin 28 by split decision but I think Vugar won the fight by decision after winning the fight multiple times.

Before fighting for RIZIN fought for Bellator defeating a fighter Gustavo Wurlitzer. Impressed me when he defeated Kyle Aguon.

  • 14-1 record
  • Rizin Fighter
  • Bellator win
  • Four Time World Champion, Three Time European Champion Pankration

Vojto Barborik

Rising Slovakian Featherweight prospect, Successful career fighting for Oktagon, XFN and last fight was at KSW 60. Definitely underrated European Featherweight who has a major matchup in front of him!! Facing off against Ivan Buchinger former M1 Featherweight Champion, XFN Featherweight Champion.

Vojto is a talented fighter, Defeating Ivan Buchinger would catapult his career moving forward. Major promotion matchmakers would hear about Barborik defeating a respected European Featherweight with a 38-7 record.

  • 13-1
  • 28 years old
  • Six submission wins

Shamil Musaev

Rising KSW Lightweight with a undefeated record of 15-0 record. Shamil Musaev is a KSW Lightweight Title Contender after defeating former Titan FC Welterweight Champion Uros Jurisic at KSW 58. Next fight for Musaev is facing against Marian Ziółkowski the current KSW Lightweight Champion.

Few Title defenses if he defeats the KSW Lightweight Champion and a MAJOR promotion will sign him.

Khasan Askhabov

Khasan Askhabov twin brother of Khusein Askhabov is a beast in his own right, WWFC Featherweight Champion. Impressive talent, All around skills just like his twin brother.

His low kicks are lethal, Puts pressure on his opponents. Plenty tools in his toolshed as he trains down in Florida at American Top Team.

  • 26 years old

Love watching his WWFC Fights on YOUTUBE, I hope he signs with UFC, Bellator or One Championship. He definitely deserves it.

Valeriu Mircea

Moldova #1 Prospect, Formerly was Eagles Fighting Championship Featherweight Champion. Now 1-1 with Brave Combat Federation, Hope he has a successful career in Brave since it’s the biggest Middle Eastern Promotion.

Now looking to be a Brave CF Lightweight Champion to attract bigger better promotions.

“Our goal is to get the long-awaited UFC contract, obviously, but as for now, I’m more than happy. My primary goal is the BRAVE belt. Who knows what will happen next.” Valeriu Mircea
