Over the last couple of years i've been keeping record of and researching around 400 unbeaten MMA fighters.
The 2 rules are that fighters...
- Must never have fought for UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator or Dream.
- Must have fought in 2011
Therefore you probably wouldn't have heard on 90% of them, which is the idea, as to give you a good insight into future prospects.
I did a similar thing around a year ago which can be seen here: http://www.mmaforum.com/general-mma-...-fighters.html
Of the last list, 20 out of the 100 fighters have since been signed by one of the big 4 promotions (7 UFC, 6 Strikeforce, 5 Bellator, 2 Dream). The biggest names perhaps include Chris Weidman, Lorenz Larkin, Lloyd Woodard, Ramsey Nijem & Edwin Figueroa. So its a good way to find out about future prospects.
New list features:
- 10 more fighters this time out (5 less in Heavyweight, 5 more in Middleweight, Welterweight & Lightweight)
- Just 17 guys from the previous list, so 93 new fighters
- The country of which each fighter is from
- 25 smaller organisation champions
- Fighters from 20 different countries
- Strength of opponents they've faced
- Fighters with records from 15-0 to 3-0
- Top 5 records include 15-0, 14-0, 12-0, 12-0, 11-0, 11-0, 11-0, 11-0, 11-0, 10-0, 10-0, 10-0
I'm going on holiday on Wednesday for 11 nights, so i'll be posting the list on here in around 2 weeks!
Hope you guys look forward to it
