Here's the latest article on prospects.

As always, there are five fighters. The first one is above the fold, the rest is on the site.

Well, I don’t really have any sort of joining thread between these five up-and-coming fighters, but I figure they are all worth mentioning. So this is sort of a miscellanious selection of five solid prospects who are worth looking for in the future, and two who will definitely be making their way onto many TVs in Japan in the near future.

First up, there’s a fighter I ran into when I realized that he was fighting a world class jiu-jitsu coach. Augusto Montano (4-0 MMA) seems like he’s still in the early stages of his career, but with all of his wins coming by way of knockout or submission (three by the former) he’s definitely going to make a mark. With a recent win over Team Quest resident Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt Joao Assis (5-4-0-1 MMA), Montano has left a mark on the sport already, by stopping the return of a very well respected competitor. Montano has also locked up an impressive win over well respected small-circuit veteran Miguel Carrasco (7-4 MMA), TKOing Carrasco in 1:11 last November. While no one on Montano’s record is really a legendary opponent, they are all respectable opposition, and only one of the four opponents has a losing record, Alberto Lopez (2-3 MMA), though Lopez had picked up his first two wins back-to-back going into their bout. What’s most impressive, perhaps, about Montano’s record, is that the guy has only been fighting professionally since November, when he made his debut in an eight man tournament in Mexico City, defeating Carrasco, Lopez and Jorge Serratos (2-1 MMA), finishing all three. I can only imagine that Augusto is somehow related to Erik Montano (2-2 MMA), a recent opponent of the bizarre character known as War Machine (9-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC), as Erik also fought in the eight man tournament Augusto won in debuting.
