Mikkel Parlo - 5-0-0 - Middleweight - Danish – 20 years old
The young muay thai specialist is Denmark's biggest prospect. He made his MMA debut at just 19 years old with a first round knockout, and has raked in 5 wins (4 by KO, 1 Submission) in his young MMA career. His opponents have a combined record of 21-8, so he has been fighting good opposition. His last 2 victories have been a 1st round submission of Vincent Del Guerra (9-3) and a 12 second knockout of Dan Edwards (8-3).
Jack Marshman - 9-0-0 - Middleweight - English – 21 years old
This 21 years old has achieved so much in his young career already. Firstly, he is a Private in the British Armed forces and requires permission from his regiment in order to compete in MMA. He is a former Army boxing champion, and as you would expect, has 8 knockouts in his 9 wins (the other being a submission). He has recently stepped up in competition, submitting Mark Ling (8-1) in July, before getting a TKO victory over Carl Noon (7-1) in September to become the BAMMA Middleweight champion.
Jean N'Doye - 5-0-0 - Featherweight - French – 24 years old
The 24 year old Frenchman is a stand-up specialist and has finished 4 of his 5 fights. He is from and trains in France, but fights for English organisation CWFC. He burst onto the British scene in June when he got a 3rd round TKO of Brit prospect Dan Hope (8-2). He has competed at Lightweight in his entire 5 fight career so far, but recently announced he will drop to Featherweight for his next fight, which will do the undersized Lightweight the world of good. Unfortunately injuries have prevented him from fighting since, but he should be back early next year.
Chris Fishgold - 6-0-0 - Featherweight - English – 19 years old
The jui-jitsu ace has had a perfect start to his MMA career – as well as being unbeaten as an amateur, he has racked up 5 submission wins in his 6 fights. The youngest fighter on my list at just 19 years old has been training in martial arts just 4 years, and has already amassed a purple belt in jui-jitsu. After fighting for British organisation OMMAC, he recently got signed up by larger promotion BAMMA, where he should get a much needed step up in competition. His wins havn’t come over the greatest of opponents, but he is just 19 years old and in his BAMMA debut in September he got a nice win over Jeremy Petley (5-2).
Habib Nurmagomedov - 16-0-0 - Welterweight - Russian – 23 years old
The man with the most impressive record on this list has mainly been competing for Russian organisation ProFC. The 23 year old Russian has finished his last 6 opponents (who have a combined record of 45-39) in the 1st round. He has however got a very padded record, with the majority of his wins over fighters with 5 fights or less. Nevertheless, 16 wins and 0 losses is a very impressive record. Time for him to move to a larger European organisation like BAMMA or M1 and fight some better fighters!
Andreas Stahl - 6-0-0 - Welterweight - Swedish – 23 years old
This young Swede trains with another Swedish prospect in Tor Troeng. He’s been fighting on the Swedish circuit, picking up 3 wins in 2011 over fighters with a combined record of 16-7. His most impressive victory recently came in a Unanimous Decision over Domingos Mestre (8-3) in September. He needs to improve to make waves in the MMA world, but he’s still young and has plenty of time to develop.
