Anyways, you can read more about it in the link, but I profile 10 fighters from each major weight class, 80 fighters in all. Thus far, I have completed Flyweight and Bantamweight, and am at the midway point of Featherweight.
I realize my site is small beans, but I am hoping my Prospects Report gets its fair share of readers. If you end up liking the coverage and report, please pass on the word.

As for Lance Palmer being the No. 1 prospect, I wouldn't argue strongly with it, but I personally scored his last fight for Demon Eyes Downing.

There isn't any hate being directed at Birchak. He's a great talent, and I'm sure he's going to make it to the UFC or Bellator one day.
I stated that Birchak's loss to Clay hurt him while I was compiling my Prospects Report. He probably shouldn't have accepted the fight against Clay in the first place, since it was at 145 lbs., required him to travel last minute to Brazil, and he had to face someone so experienced. Hopefully his management will do a better job booking him fights that will lead him to the UFC or Bellator.

As of today, 6 prospects featured have signed with the UFC, 5 additional have made The Ultimate Fighter 18, and 2 have signed on with Bellator.
I am almost halfway through the LHW division, and then will conclude with HW.
