The Top 100 Unbeaten, Unassigned Fighters **Version 2**
 
I did another list around this time last year and people enjoyed it, so i'm doing the same again this year.

Of last years 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 were probably Chris Weidman, Lorenz Larkin & Lloyd Woodard.


This year....
The 2 rules are that fighters:
- Must not fight 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.

This year, i've made a few improvements - This year it includes the fighters ages, nationalities, and the record of the opponents they've faced - so its easier to see if they've attained their record through fighting decent fighters or bums.

Just 16 fighters remain from last years list, meaning 84 new fighters, so its pretty much a new list.

Without further ado, the list is after the jump, i hope you all find it interesting!

Great work mate, awesome post.

The two that stand out for me are both Russian.

Alexander Sarnavskiy 15-0 at lightweight and Khabib Nurmagomedov 14-0 at Welterweight.

Good stuff, mate!
Dan Pauling looks pretty impressive. 18 years old, all stoppages and 5 of 6 were in the 1st round. Probably didn't have any quality opponents, but the guy will be already pretty experienced when he's only 20, and if the skill set comes along, he could have some serious potential.

Joe Ellenberger the brother of Jake?

Yup. He got offered a contract by the UFC a couple of years ago, but he got a serious blood disease soon after. Only returned a couple of months ago after 2 years out, won 2 fights since, so i would have thought he'll get the call from UFC again pretty soon, especially with his bro nearing a title shot.
