First Week of April MMA Prospects to Watch 2022

First week of April has some talented fighters with potential to make a impact and win with a top promotion like UFC, Bellator, One Championship and PFL.

Bunch of fighters all over the world fighting for Cage Warriors, Legacy Fighting Alliance, Fury FC and many more promotions.

Djati Melan

New Cage Warriors Middleweight Champion is defending his title for the first time against Christian Leroy Duncan one of the best England MMA prospects right now.

Hometown crowd will be cheering for Duncan but I think Melan will get the job done with the strength and grappling ability.

Melan focuses is takedowns and look to control the fighter on the ground.

Dominated Matthew Bonner to take the title from him with his wrestling the entire 5 rounds. Watched his ARES FC, Cage Warriors fights and does same strategy.

Melan must be ridiculously strong to successfully wrestle and control position for remainder of the round.

  • 8-0 record
  • top ten UK Middleweight prospect
  • Cage Warriors Middleweight Champion

Gerardo Fanny

Dutch native one of the best flyweight prospects in the world looking to climb up the Cage Warriors Flyweight rankings by defeating Wales fighter Aaron Aby.

Gerado Fanny right now on a two fight winning streak and will look to extend that streak with a leg kick heavy controlling the pace of the fight and being calculated with his strikes.

Honestly reminds me of Manel Kape. Kape when he decides to move forward and become aggressive he’s very dangerous.

Win over Aby I expect Fanny to fight for the Cage Warriors Flyweight title.

Igeu Kabesa

By far the #1 African MMA prospect. The face of Extreme Fighting Championship or EFC.

2 time EFC Featherweight Champion, Notable wins over Danny Henry, Peter Queally.

Sadly lost in his last fight against Reinaldo Ekson, Losing his EFC Featherweight title.

Win over Ashley Calvert definitely will help regain his title.

Not only is Kabesa is the best prospect out of Africa but is a top 15 Featherweight prospect. The talent Kabesa has from the explosive power, takedown defense and the well accomplished wrestling pedigree.

Talent mixed with raw athleticism he can defeat UFC, Bellator Featherweights any given day.

  • Former EFC Featherweight Champ
  • wins over Danny Henry, Peter Queally
  • 23 x national wrestling champion

Lucas Clay

Rising Lightweight prospect gonna try making 2022 a impactful year for him. Becoming one of the best Lightweights in the United States.

Fighting the respected Aaron McKenzie for the vacated LFA Featherweight title.

Clay red hot on a four fight winning streak defeating some real good fighters like JJ Okanovich.

Lucas Clay heavily into wrestling and ground & pound. His striking is a disguise just for he can shoot for the takedowns or look to clinch than takedown.

Definitely his bread and butter but stick to what got you to the dance.

Trains out of St. Charles MMA with Julius Anglickas, LFA Flyweight Champion Charles Johnson, Elmar Umarov.

  • 8-1 record
  • Win over JJ Okanovich
