Bantamweight rising prospect, Saidyokub Kakharamonov displayed a MASTERPIECE against Tycen Lynn. Winning the CFFC Bantamweight Title. Winning a Cage Fury Fighting Championship Title is a well accomplished title. CFFC one of the best run regional promotions in the world.
Kakharamonov cracking Tycen Lynn in the second round, Showing his powerful right hand. Seriously impressed with the win as Lynn defeated Phil Caracappa at CFFC 88. Tycen Lynn was no cake walk but Saidyokub showed he’s ready for the Dana White Contender Series or a short notice fight.
“I can fight next week, tomorrow, anytime. I’m not even injured, I can make weight in three days. Short notice, long notice, it doesn’t matter. If they call me, I answer the phone. Contender Series, that’s like one step closer. If you go to Contender Series, you don’t want to go to a decision. You want to impress, Dana White is there.”
Finished watching Lux Fight League 12 Main Event Diego Lopes vs Masio Fullen on UFC Fight Pass. One man domination by Diego Lopes. MASTERFUL Performance by the Brazilian Featherweight prospect.
Lux Fight League Featherweight Champion Diego Lopes risen in value, Brazilian prospect rankings with that performance. Not exaggerating it was a GREAT performance.
Impressed me with his striking, Picking the right shots mixing with the pressure!! Pressuring Fullen to the cage with jumping knees. Diego Lopes on the ground looks like a world class jiu jitsu artist. Leading to a beautiful armbar in the third round.
Best performance by Diego Lopes, Defending his Lux Fight League Featherweight title for the 2nd time.
Diego Lopes born in Brazil, Hot bed since the beginning of MMA, Diego Lopes is part of the next generation of Brazilian MMA fighters. Future UFC/Bellator Featherweight Title contender.
After that performance time for Dana White and his matchmakers, Scott Coker and his matchmakers to sign Diego Lopes. Wish Bellator signs him but whoever pays more is what I’m for!!
Exciting fighter to watch, STAR written all over him as Diego Lopes continues to make a name for himself in one of the best Latin American MMA promotions.
Manel Kape one of the biggest free agent signings for 2020, Many hardcore fans extremely excited for Manel Kape UFC debut. Former Rizin Bantamweight Champion.
Now Kape with all the hype is on a two fight losing streak, However Kape in my opinion won his second bout against Matheus Nicolau. Lost first round but finally decided to throw a little bit, Leading to Kape winning the second and third round. Stuffing the Nicolau takedowns, Showing his takedown defense improved since his UFC debut.
“It was a close fight. I’m not here to judge, my job is to fight here until the end,” Nicolau sad. “I’m just happy to be here with the victory – flyweight division, I’m back.
“I feel that I could do a lot more, but he caught me in the second round, it was trouble for me.”
However Manel Kape NEEDS to throw more, Kape is talented. Must be nervous about fighting for UFC, Afraid to get hit. I don’t know what his deal is but he can beat these guys no doubt about it. Lack of confidence in the Octagon, Biggest stage as possible!
I hope he listens to his head coaches Javier Mendez, Mike Swick(AKA Thailand) about pushing the pace more because one more loss and the UFC will cut him. Not like he’s an exciting fighter. Doesn’t throw a lot of punches.
On the other hand if Kape actually throws like he did in the 2nd & 3rd round he can 100% fight for a Flyweight Title. Drives fans like myself and hardcore fans crazy that he doesn’t push the pace and attack.
American Kickboxing Academy speaks highly of him, All believe he can be a champion.
“He works so hard and deserves this. Not only is he one of the hardest workers at the gym, but also one of the most loyal. That’s hard to find these days,” Swick added.
“We have no doubt he will be a UFC Champion one day,” he concluded.
That being said Manel Kape former Rizin Bantamweight Champion, Main Event Attraction. Early finisher for Rizin can transfer those early finishes to UFC.
Make it or break it time for Manel Kape. Fight this summer or spring against two tough opponents. Tyson Nam or Jordan Espinosa. Both fighters coming off losses. Tyson Nam fighting for UFC since 2017. Last fight was against Matt Schnell while Jordan Espinosa lost against Tim Elliot at UFC 259.
Kape vs Espinosa fun fight to watch on the prelims. Jordan Espinosa alumni of the Dana White Contender Series.
Give Kape some confidence against TOUGH flyweights, Learning from his mistakes. Key is throwing more strikes, Earn an obvious unanimous victory from the judges or knockout his opponent. Leading to 50k bonus for Manel Kape.
I hope Manel Kape learns his lesson and looks his best since his Rizin 20 performance against Kai Asakura!
Major win for Nasrat Hapqarast, Defeating a world class fighter in Rafa Garcia… Combate Americas Lightweight Champion. Showing his heavy hands, Hearing the pop every time he hit Rafa Garcia.
Nasrat looked GREAT in the first round but Garcia is a DAWG!! Continued putting pressure on Nasrat. Leading to a unanimous decision. Overall a great fight as Rafa Garcia was one of the best prospects from Mexico.
“My team, we are always like this. When we get the name, it doesn’t matter his record, doesn’t matter his experience, we always take him very seriously,” Haqparast said. “He had nothing to lose. He had five days’ notice, six days’ notice, stepped in … It was a good experience also for me to fight a guy like this: tough, a little bit shorter than me, in a smaller Octagon … It was a good experience.”

Boost up in competition, UFC believed in him. Now time to take a step back and face a top 15-top 20 Bantamweight…. Face Nathaniel Wood.
Nathaniel Wood vs Casey Kenney happened at UFC 254, Prelims bout. High paced, Constant action fight that went three rounds. My opinion Nathaniel Wood won that fight by split decision, Judges scored it wrong.
Time for a rematch, Two HIGH LEVEL Bantamweight rising stars facing each other in the summer of 2021. Pay-Per View Bout or UFC Fight Night. Rewarded a fight of the night bonus.
UFC definitely can tell a story about the controversial fight, Wood and Kenney trash talk on social media, MMA interviews. Building the fight MUCH AS POSSIBLE before the fight happens.
UFC commentators, UFC analyst definitely will be excited for this fight, FIGHT of the NIGHT potential.
Nathaniel Wood remains one of my favorite fighters. Yes he lost to John Dodson but was winning the rounds till he made a mistake in the third round, Dodson being a veteran took advantage of the opportunity and knocked out the “Prospect”.

On the other hand Casey Kenney, Rising star. Former LFA Bantamweight Champion can hand the “Prospect” a sixth loss.

Medic asking to fight in Texas in front of a sold out ARENA, Hope Medic Alaskan attorney gets the job done and allows Medic to fight in Texas. Let the man earn his money, Extra cash from 50k bonuses.
Barely any damage in the fight, Quick turn around in Dallas, Houston if Uncle Bobby Dana… A.K.A Dana White persuades the Mayor to allow fans back in the arena. Maybe hand the Mayor a sweet envelope under the table, “Giving the Mayor an offer he can’t refuse. “
Medic will be the perfect fighter on the prelims because of his fighting style. Becomes a fan favorite I guarantee. Treat Medic the same way the UFC managed Khamzat Chimaev, Kevin Holland, Bobby Green in 2020. Dominant wins with barely damage than scheduling him to fight few weeks later.

Professional Fighters League 2021 season begins on April 23rd. PFL signed free agents Anthony Pettis, Bubba Jenkins, Fabricio Werdum. Underrated PFL signing Jordan Young!
Jordan Young Bellator
Jordan Young youngest fighter in the PFL Light Heavyweight division. Before signing with PFL was a hot prospect for Bellator. Defeating tough fighters with undefeated records. Six fight winning streak with Bellator.. Before losing to Julius Anglickas.
Submission specialist, Choking out his opponents to victory. Leading to a current record of 11-1.
Crazy that Bellator allowed Jordan Young to leave and test free agency. Good for Jordan Young to test the market and now can make a career with Professional Fighters League. Felt disrespected by Bellator after being a hot prospect for them, Finishing fights early. Not being a boring fighter. Unfair treatment from Jordan Young’s side.
“A lot of people don’t know who I am across the MMA community because they haven’t had the opportunity to see me,” Young said. “At 25 years of age and with an 11-1 record, I think that’s kind of absurd. If you take a couple steps back, I’ve only fought two or three times a year. A lot of those fights are first-round finishes. I’m fresh. I’m healthy. I make my check and then I sit for six months and you don’t hear a word about me. That’s like the worst treatment I think you can give an up-and-coming fighter who has star potential and is winning his fights in the fashion I’m winning them, which is without being touched.
American Top Team prospect, Jordan Young can prove his worth. Showing the world he’s a world class fighter defeating tough fighters. Former UFC Light Heavyweights.
Jordan Young on Pub Sports Radio asked for Chris Camozzi for his PFL debut. Definitely should be rewarded the opportunity to fight a UFC veteran. Seeing what he’s made of. Young believes himself and PFL confident in his skills as well. Signed Young for a reason, Young hungry lion looking to murder the Light Heavyweights.
“When I signed with the PFL, they put a belief in me and I put a belief in them. They’re saying the 2021 season is going to be a go, so I’m just looking at staying focused and being the best me that I can be physically and mentally so when 2021 hits and that new season hits, I’m going to be in a great position.
Winning by submission in the early rounds. Entering the PFL tournament and leading himself to the final against expected finalist Emiliano Sordi. Pulling up the upset by defeating the PFL 2019 Light Heavyweight Champion.
Discussed as one of the best Light Heavyweights in the world. Upcoming Light Heavyweights. Building his brand, Name value radically sky rockets because of one year!! Crazy but that can happen in this wild combat sport.
Stephen Loman signs with One Championship. Underrated MMA Free Agent signing this winter. Reason why it’s a big signing because Stephen Loman was the BRAVE CF Bantamweight Champion. The King of Brave CF for a while and now it’s time for a change.
Signing with One Championship is a smart prizefighter move, Now becoming a One Championship Star and earning a lot of money.
14-2 record, 29 years old. Loman signing with One Championship at the right time. All-Around technical fighter that you appreciate to watch. In for a treat with Stephen Loman one of the best Bantamweights in the world.
Stephen Loman began his career at Brave CF 1 fighting current Frans Mlambo. Taking control of the fight with pressure but through his Brave CF career you can see the radical difference till his last fight at Brave CF 30 defeating Louie Sanoudakis.
In his Brave CF career defeated Frans Mlambo twice, Gary Mangat(One Championship current fighter) Elias Boudegzdame (Former Brave CF Featherweight Champion) which ended in a 4th round knockout. Defeated a tough Felipe Efrain who trains at Chute Boxe in Brazil.
Not like any of Loman’s opponents are off the couch, Lesser opponents. Loman matched up against really talented fighters. For Example Frans Mlambo is 3-1 with Bellator.
Loman entering One Championship is on a 8 fight winning streak.
One Championship Debut Fight….
Loman One Championship debut isn’t easy, Throwing the wolves. First fight is against John Lineker. Yes John Lineker former UFC Bantamweight who was a top ten UFC Bantamweight!! Defeated Marlon Vera, John Dodson, Rob Font. Lost to a split decision with Sandhagen… Controversial loss.
Now Lineker is 2-0 with One Championship, Pursuing a title shot with a win against Stephen Loman.
Loman better be training six hours a day… Three times a week because Lineker is one of the best Bantamweights in the world. Training at Team Lakay with Kevin Belingon, Eduard Folayang and coach Mark Santiago.
However if Stephen Loman can defeat Lineker man that will radically change his career for the better!!
Place the name of Stephen Loman on the map, Earning the respect as one of the best Bantamweights in the world. Talked about on Joe Rogan for a minute clip, Luke Thomas, Ariel Helwani, Danny Segura, Weighing In Podcast. MMA Media will be buzzing if Stephen Loman can shock the world defeating John Lineker.
Yes of course Loman can win, All-Around talented fighter. Overall grappling is his best skills that can lead to a Lineker win. Lineker is the better striker but controlling the fight as the bigger fighter helps in this case.
If Loman losses which can happen but gives John Linker a real challenge he can be truly proud of himself that he fought a decision with one of the best Bantamweights in the world. Fighting on the Main Card of One Championship.
Fighting in front of millions of viewers on TNT, Building up his name. Showing MMA fans that there’s so many talented fighters that people aren’t aware of and Loman is one of them.
“I’m excited to enhance my skills on this platform and showcase my style to millions of viewers across the globe.”
“My plan is to train hard, to prove myself that I am the best. I want to fight the best fighter and I want to stay on the top. If I get a chance to fight for the belt, I will do my best to capture it”.
Magomed Magomedov former ACB(ACA) Bantamweight Champion ONLY fighter to defeat Petr Yan. Fought Petr Yan twice and in the second fight, Fought even better but lost because Yan improved. However Magomed Magomedov is an assassin, One of the best Bantamweights in the world and congrats to Bellator signing him.
Dominant grappling performance in his Bellator debut against Mattheus Mattos.
“I felt great, but I feel like I was basically about 60 percent,” Magomedov told MMA Junkie through an interpreter at the Bellator 254 post-fight news conference. “I basically just showed that I could wrestle, but what I didn’t show was how I mix it up in the standup and so forth.”
Only showing 60% of his ability, Second fight against Justin Scoggins , UFC Flyweight Veteran, Former Rizin Bantamweight. Scoggins now signed with Bellator.
Exciting matchup to make, Definitely one of the toughest fights for Magomedov and Scoggins will be in a rude awakening. Seeing how Magomedov ranks amongst the opponents he fought.
Magomed Magomedov vs Justin Scoggings in for a treat folks… Bellator 255. Sweet fight on paper but will see how good Magomedov is or will… Scoggins will pull off the upset and move up the Bantamweight rankings.
However Magomedov can completely dominate Scoggings start to finish, Showing a full display of striking, Faster paced fight, Smart Fighter IQ. Masterful performance against a super tough Scoggins.
“I wouldn’t mind having one more fight just to kind of open up more and really get going — and then I’m definitely ready for a title.”
ACA 118 Murad Abdulaev vs Abubakar Vagaev is the headliner but on the prelims is a specific prospect to watch who can sign with UFC or One Championship. Azam Gaforov is that prospect to watch, World class flyweight prospect born and raised Tajikistan fighting one of the best MMA promotions in the world.
Azam Gaforov 27 year old 12-1 record, Wushu Sanda fighting style. High level Flyweight is the #8th Flyweight in ACA. Fighting the 6th ranked flyweight Charles Henrique. Competitive fight, Gaforov defeats a really tough Braziian flyweight that will help him move up the rankings.
Gaforov reminds me of Brandon Moreno because of his pressure stand up striking. Looks like a pitbull, Keeps going at you!! Sweet hands, Solid takedown defense but needs to work on his stand up defense because he’ll get cracked against Moreno, Kape, France if he ever fought in the UFC.
However Azam Gaforov is VERY VERY good, Expect big things from 27 year old who will be signing with the UFC, One Championship in the near future.
Expect a significant win for Gaforov that will lead to a 2021 title shot!!
Tom Aspinall Newest UFC Heavyweight prospect riding high since his UFC debut. Significant win against Andrei Arlovski. Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and one of the UFC legends. Second round submission win.

Few more fights away from being a Heavyweight contender, Dana White desperate for young Heavyweights that move the needle and Aspinall definitely will as time goes on.
‘I know for a fact one day I am going to hold the title’, he said last week. I don’t know when that is going to be, it could be in ten years I don’t know, but I’m just taking it as it comes.
“I want to be fighting more veterans like that because you can learn from them. I was hitting him with some clean shots. But because he’s (taken) so many shots, he knows how to ride the shots and close the distance, so you don’t land them clean. All kinds of stuff I haven’t really dealt with before, so I’d like to fight someone like him again.”
Aspinall looking to fight twice in 2021. Looking to fight Chris Daukaus or UFC Veterans. Select the matchup with the veteran and hold the matchup with Daukaus for the future.
Marcin Tybura high level striker, Murdered Greg Hardy in the standup. Fighting for the UFC since 2016. Four fight winning streak after consistent wins & losses streak. Tybura looking the best he’s ever looked.
Right fight for Tom Aspinall right now. Tybura former M1 Heavyweight Champion, UFC Veteran vs Tom Aspinall UFC Heavyweight prospect. Main Card throw down.
“If” Aspinall defeats Tybura during the post fight interview call out Chris Daukaus who looked fantastic in his last fight against Aleksei Oleinik.
Aspinall vs Daukaus would be a GREAT Heavyweight prospect fight that can be a Main Card fight. Both fighters in there prime of there career. One of many fights for them. Defeated the veterans of the MMA world, Now looking to see whose the FUTURE UFC Heavyweight Champion.
As for when he wants to return, and who he wants to fight next, he said: “I want to fight in the summer. I’d love to fight in June. I’d like a bit of Fight Island — that would be lovely.

Christian Lee, MMA prodigy. One Championship Lightweight Champion. Reigning the Lightweight division at 22 years old.. Dominating his fights in stellar fashion. Scary to think Christian Lee is only 22 years old, Defeating world class fighters from Shinya Aoki and Iuri Lapicus.

Christian Lee’s older sibling and sister is a killer. One Championship Women’s Atomweight champion. 4 title defenses. Not the biggest finisher but wins fights in dominant fashion. Attempted and failed to fight in the strawweight division, Losing two fights.
However Angela Lee has some tough future matchups against Alyona Rassohyna who impressively defeated Stamp Fairtex(Multiple time Muay Thai Champion). Angela Lee vs Alyona Rassohyna is a sick Atomweight fight that will show how talented Angela Lee is.
Chatri Sityodtong, Matt Hume continues to sign Atomwieight prospects and stack the division. Future opponents for Angela Lee.
Angela Lee will be a star, Role Model and heroine to little girls all across Asia to become aspiring fighters. Following there dreams.
Troy Worthen One Championship Bantamweight prospect, University of Central Florida All-American Wrestler. 3-1 record with One Championship. Last fight was a loss to Yasup Saadulaev, Dagestan savage with a 19-8 record. More experience inside the ring will see Worthen defeat world class fighters from Leandro Issa, Rematch with Saadulaev.
One Championship needs young hungry lions from North America and Worthen gives the North American market. Bibiano Fernandes reigned over the Bantamweight division for a long time, Time for a fighter to take the throne and Worthen potentially can do that.
Only 27 years old, Prime of his athletic career. Looking forward to Worthen’s 2021 season. Returning back in full form.

World class talent, All-Around fighter. One of the best Featherweights in the world.
AJ McKee’s Bellator contract is expiring but Scott Coker needs to do whatever he can to sign McKee to a long term fight deal. Bellator has a star on there hands, Amount of sponsors McKee can attract for Bellator. Pay-Per View headliner with Showtime/Bellator.
Labeled “Lebron James of MMA” Aaron Pico is the next version of George St Pierre. MMA fans, MMA journalist were doubting his talents but now on a three fight winning streak defeating talented fighters.

“Expect Usman to be the Luke Rockhold of Dagestan because the guy has got it all.”
