  1. 1

    Islam Makhachev
    Islam Makhachev
    1991 - Russia - UFC Champion

    Not as dominant as Khabib used to be but the couple of times he's been dragged into deep waters he's toughed it out and come through with the win. Mixes striking with his wrestling beautifully and whether it's because his striking is that good or whether it's because of the threat of the takedown he's capable of mixing it on the feet with high level strikers now. He's also started using knees in the clinch really well although the way he goes for the Thai plum to deliver them does leave him a little open to body punches.

    Grappling is obviously top class, brilliant from the Khabib position where they look to slide a hook in between the opponent and the fence. Great at taking the back and attacks constantly with subs too, also very good at using ground and pound from any position to open things up. Absolutely insane squeeze when he gets a choke locked up, makes legit BJJ black belts tap extremely quickly. Utter nightmare on the mat.
  2. 2

    Arman "Ahalkalakets" Tsarukyan
    Arman Tsarukyan
    1996 - Armenia - UFC

    Very hard working and seems to be consistently improving at a rapid rate of development. Seems to have all the intangibles you want in a fighter, chin is there, desire to fight out of deep subs, great cardio and workrate. Add that in to really good grappling and wrestling and vastly improved striking and you've got yourself a problem.
  3. 3

    Charles "do Bronx" Oliveira
    Charles Oliveira
    "do Bronx"
    34-10-0, 1 NC
    1989 - Brazil - UFC

    Former UFC champ still has it for me. Striking very improved offensively, sits down on punches well and connects hard. Defence not quite to the same standard and can be tagged. One of the most ruthless sub artists ever on the ground, dangerous guard but that does seem to be able to be negated to an extent by people who are really solid on top although even then he tends to have his highly threatening moments.
  4. 4

    Eduard "Lionheart" Vartanyan
    Eduard Vartanyan

  5. 5

    Max "Blessed" Holloway
    Max Holloway
    1991 - USA - UFC

    Looked superb in step up to 155. Looks unstoppable in general against anyone not called Alex Volkanovski. Just insane levels of output and with accurate striking it's so hard to keep up with. Obviously the master of the point to the ground 10 second war. Not sure if he's going to fight much at 155 going forward but he seems to have a future at the top end of the division if he wants it.
  6. 6

    Justin "The Highlight" Gaethje
    Justin Gaethje
    "The Highlight"
    1988 - USA - UFC

    Former interim UFC champ, lost BMF title to Max in an absolute war. Found the pace and volume of Max difficult to deal with, tends to fair better in fights where he gets to set the pace. Obviously great chin, great leg kicks and striking in general. Loads of pressure and still going to be a hard fight for most people. Bad KO against Max, don't know if his style will start to catch up with him soon.
  7. 7

    Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier
    Dustin Poirier
    "The Diamond"
    30-9-0, 1 NC
    1989 - USA - UFC

    Undoubtedly one of the best fighters never to be undisputed champion, put up a really good effort against Islam but who knows if we'll see him again. If he doesn't retire he still looks elite though, obviously he has some of the best boxing in the sport and his killer instinct when he has someone hurt is great, when you get some decent slow-mo footage you can really see how focused he is on picking the right shots to end someone's night. Seems to have improved his TDD in the open mat, was doing a good job turning and kicking out of singles against Islam but was still getting dragged down against the cage. Tends to give up back when taken down but generally survives okay there unless he's against someone who's great from that position.

    BSD - Poirier kept pulling ******* gilly again, had to go through the mire in the first round, TDD not great, gets in trouble on bottom but hard to actually finish and counter boxing when people try to pressure him is second to none.

    Mateusz Gamrot
    24-2-0, 1 NC
    1990 - Poland - UFC

    RDA - seemed to find the physicality of RDA a bit difficult sometimes. Might be something to watch against people with really good TDD. Timing on entries very good, also good at sucking in a single leg and turning the corner when it looks like a takedown has been defended. A little more tired than usual but a lot of hard work to try and hold RDA down.

    Salahdine Parnasse
    Salahdine Parnasse
    1997 - France - KSW Champion

    Former KSW double champ, not where he'll choose to fight in another promotion but he's a threat wherever. Fights more sensibly now so seems unlikely to get caught easily. Very smooth on the feet, mixes wrestling in really well and has a great back take and top game. Was competitive in the clinch with a beast like Bartosinski up at welterweight, so that doesn't bode well for smaller guys.

    Poirier - too concentrated on offence, fought at an insane pace, grappling great, back takes great, tried to pile into Dustin one too many times and found that there's certain shots you can't take clear on the chin.

    Diego Ferreira
    Diego Ferreira
    1985 - Brazil - UFC

    Fanstastic grappler who only loses against top competition. Also a really good pressure boxer who can walk guys down well and get good volume off because he's not bothered if you take him down, super good at posting and getting up when he decides to stay on the bottom. Solid power when he connects clean too. Cardio looks good despite advanced years. Rolled back the years with an excellent performance against Rebecki.

    Gamrot - still looks good, caught Gamrot early, tough to hold down, does everything well technically. Used butterflies well to get up. Cardio still looks really good.

    Renato "Money Moicano" Moicano
    Renato Moicano
    "Money Moicano"  |  19-5-1
    1989 - Brazil - UFC

    One of the better grapplers in the division. Not an amazing wrestler but manages to find ways to get guys to the mat. Really good back taker and aggressively attacks subs but usually maintains positional control when doing so. Offensive striking kind of serviceable but wants to grapple, can be caught on the feet but very tough, got to take him out properly to get him to stop.

    Jalin Turner
    "The Tarantula"  |  14-8-0
    1995 - USA - UFC

    Huge for the weight class, uses length well and gets concussive power on the end of long punches. Generally good killer instinct when gets someone hurt. Height can make him quite tough to take down but a little prone to getting stuck on the bottom against really good top grapplers.

    Bobby "King" Green
    Bobby Green
    "King"  |  32-15-1, 1 NC
    1986 - USA - UFC

    Very experienced and awkward to fight. Fast as ****, throws from the waist which combined with the speed makes it hard to read. Chin open but some of the best torso movement in the game which makes him tough to catch clean. Good takedown defence, a very tough opponent for anyone who's not at the very top level. Late 30's so speed could drop off at any time and probably likely to fall off quickly once that goes.
  30. 29

    Grant "KGD" Dawson
    Grant Dawson
    "KGD"  |  21-2-1
    1994 - USA - UFC

    Not a good striker, his striking is all a bit loopy and forced but he knows he's not a good striker so he's only doing it to get into the clinch or into shooting range which to be honest probably works better than grapplers who are a bit more advanced with their striking games and have deluded themselves into thinking they can strike with strikers.

    Very good at bodylocks, trips and backtakes and sticky with very good control too. When I've seen people drop for guillotines etc on him he looks very calm defending them and it feels like them giving him a free takedown. Solid on top, probably not going to beat anyone he can't take down but he showed against Madsen that his persistence with his wrestling can get guys who are more accomplished there than him on paper to the mat.

    Drakkar Klose
    Drakkar Klose
    1988 - USA - UFC

    Underrated dude generally but finally seems to be getting some recognition now. Activity is the only thing you can really hold against him, he's been competitive with the top level guys he's been with and comfortably beaten the guys he should be beating. Strong, good wrestler, solid striking, faded against Joaquin but generally okay cardio wise. Good when can get educated presure on and keep his range, not as good when forced to be on the back foot.

    Mateusz "Rebeasti" Rębecki
    Mateusz Rębecki
    "Rebeasti"  |  19-2-0
    1992 - Poland - UFC

    Offensively a tank in the early going, piles forward with offence, dangerous with hands, has good explosive flying knees and good takedowns and even good BJJ from the bottom. Gas tank has looked questionable in the UFC a couple of times, never did in FEN but different testing there. Very tough but quite open to being countered coming forward if the opponent is sharp like Ferreira was. Definite heart and will keep coming even if hurt.

    Ľudovít Klein
    "Mr. Highlight"  |  22-4-1
    1995 - Slovakia - UFC

    Moises - Looking better and better with each fight at the moment and starting to look like someone who can trouble the rankings, especially in the way he dealt with a solid upper-mid division gatekeeper in Moises. Really fast hands with power in them and that left high kick is always super dangerous although it's harder to land on better people as consistently as he used to. Takedown defence looks really good, dealing with cage attempts well and getting his hips back quickly to sprawl in the open mat. Good at holding his ground and not being pushed backwards by guys that want to try and pressure him.

    Cunningham - able to tee off at will really, nice boxing, solid power, would have put a lot of people down multiple times. Always has those head kicks. Nice combo selections. Ripped to the body with front kicks and hard hooks when couldn't knock zombie opponent out. Looked very good albeit against someone he shouldn't have been in there with.

    1985 - USA - PFL

    Former Bellator champ is getting up there in age but still looking pretty good. Has generally been very inactive throughout his career but is surprisingly keeping up with the PFL season format so far.

    Renfro - Striking still pretty average, didn't look particularly comfortable when he was on the back foot with Renfro coming at him. Offensive grappling and back takes very good and sets up his RNC's well.

    Ali Bagov
    "Hulk"  |  34-11-0, 1 NC

    Shaikhaev 2 - Looks even more jacked than usual, no idea how he makes 155. Terrible fight to watch but just about the stickiest and strongest of the two sticky and strong grapplers. Not really having to worry about any power coming back standing and won the battle for control in most of the rounds.

    J Silva - incredibly tough and incredible chin. Hopped in and out well, throws and lands hard but can hop into stuff and Silva throws hard as ****. Cardio and battling spirit looked great. Stopped on a nasty cut, felt was behind anyway but always competitive.

    Ismael "Marreta" Bonfim
    Ismael Bonfim
    "Marreta"  |  20-4-0
    1995 - Brazil - UFC

    Really good volume striker with crisp technical boxing and explosive flying knees, hard to take and hold down and has decent quality BJJ. Very good when gets on the pressure, keeping guys driven back and landing consistently while keeping cardio up throughout fight. Loss to BSD doesn't look bad at all in retrospect.
  44. 43

    Artem "Spartan" Reznikov
    Artem Reznikov

    Kokov - Back to being big juggernaughty grappler Reznikov here. If you can't stop him taking you down you're getting dominated. Outclassed a decent wrestler in the wrestling. Looked very strong from back bodylock and constantly mat returning.

    1998 - Kyrgyzstan - UFC

    Sets a ridiculous pace, struggled to keep it a little at this weight in the third against Brener. Cracks super hard, doesn't always seem to believe in his striking enough. Very good wrestling, some guys able to work up against him and make him work hard. Very good at keeping forward pressure and staying in his opponents face constantly. Can be taken down himself especially from back bodylock, relies on wrestling up and that seems to fade as fight goes deeper.

    Elves Brener
    1997 - Brazil - UFC

    Credit where it's due, this dude keeps beating people I think he has no business beating. I would never in a million years have picked him to beat Guram. Dude is just an absolute dog, seems to love nothing more than getting absolutely covered in blood while opponents stare in disbelief as he still comes at them. Good power on the feet and can put people out there, does end up in bad positions but just doesn't ******* give up. Cardio really good, always seems to have a strong third round no matter who against.
  51. 50

    Thiago Moisés
    Thiago Moisés
    1995 - Brazil - UFC

    Very solid all round guy, good enough striking, pretty careful defensively and really good leg kicks. Very quick to attack things on the ground from the bottom and very tight on top when he can get there. Recovers well when hurt. Struggles with more athletic, fast guys but a very good gatekeeper for a place around the rankings in the UFC.

    Klein - Found Klein way too fast for him. Pretty careful defensively but just couldn't keep up when exchanges got going and wrestling not good enough to get through Klein's good defence although he did make a decent variety of efforts.

    Ramirez - Solid performance from Moises. Usual grappling, good at forcing back. Good leg kicks when opponent heavy on front leg. Levels above Ramirez

    Alibeg Rasulov
    Alibeg Rasulov
    1992 - Russia - ONE Championship Interim Champion

    Seemed to have a padded record on the Russian regionals but then beat Cezary in his first step up and dropped to "lightweight" in ONE and won the interim belt in a close fight in his first bout there.

    Ok - used striking a bit more in this one, mainly to get inside and get into the clinch and strike a bit from there. Cardio held up well to fight a pretty grueling fight style for 5 rounds.
  54. 53

    Raul Tutarauli
    Raul Tutarauli
    1992 - Georgia - GFC Champion

    Very solid fighter, really experienced, puts good pressure on throughout a fight. Good at getting in close and mainly landing hooks, seems to be good at landing them all over the body and keeping confusion as to where they're going to land, rare to see someone be as effective with one type of punch. Wrestling and top grappling pretty solid, has subs in the arsenal, but most of his losses are also by sub so possibly a concentration thing.

    1991 - South Korea - ONE Championship

    Won the title at ONE in a pretty debateable decision over Lee but win over Alvarez was more convincing. Either way he's a solid due with some good wins over major league champions on his record.

    Rasulov - looked fine just didn't have the power to keep Rasulov off him. Takedown defence and pummeling looked fine as did his cardio over 5 rounds. Pretty competitive in defeat.

    Al-Selwady - piles forward, sometimes a bit reckless in the way he jumps into things. Good power and can get guys to back up. Solid trips, was taken down a couple of times but generally pretty good at getting back up. Seemed to be slowing a bit but found huge shot to win.
  59. 58

    Ali Abdulkhalikov
    Ali Abdulkhalikov
    1994 - Russia - ACA

    D Ramos - One of the best back foot strikers in the sport in my opinion. Very fast with good snappy jab and spin kicks. If he decides to flip the switch and go forward he's got very fast flurries. He can be clinched a little bit but his TDD is fine and if he does get taken down he's got urgency to get back up quickly. Solid cardio which allows him to drift back in fights and when the opponent comes into range he usually gets off first.
  60. 59

    Gadzhi Rabadanov
    Gadzhi Rabadanov
    1993 - Russia - PFL

    Full fledged member of team Khabib who ended up in Bellator like a lot of Russians the UFC didn't want and moved over to PFL after the takeover and is on an 8 fight win streak.

    Espinoza - Striking quite a bit early, slings punches pretty hard. Can always use the wrestling if he decides he needs to but took a while before he started going for it here. Had a bit more trouble establishing control than I expect from team Khabib guys sometimes.

    "Tarzan"  |  21-6-0
    1992 - France - Bellator

    Great grappler with the best half guard sweeps in the games and a good array of submissions. Has a really good style of BJJ for fighting wrestlers just because I don't think his style of half guard sweeps and back takes is something they're really used to so he gets it on them. Has been shut down a bit more by guys who come from more of a BJJ background and understand that position a bit more. Not really much of a striker but comes forward to engage and has some decent clinch elbows.

    Makarenko - Just a good pressure fighter, marches forward and puts plenty of volume out there, good mixture of work with the hands and feet but primarily the boxing is where he shines. Very good at just walking through **** to get to the range he wants. Did get a couple of takedowns but didn't really establish control that well on the ground and fell off the back once. Fairly clear win over game opponent.

    Very solid dude, short and stocky but very quick and with good boxing combos, can mix some nice spin kicks to the body in there well. Seems more comfortable since moving up to 155 with his only loss being to a very good Yusuf Raisov with him looking great against everyone else.

    1993 - USA - PFL

    Fantastic hands and cardio, fights at a ridiculous pace with great volume and just breaks most guys that stand with him. Grappling is kind of throwing up loose subs, keeps people honest but guys with decent BJJ should shut it down without too much trouble. Doesn't ever check leg kicks.

    Burnell - Wild volume as usual even when being put on the back foot. Body punching is excellent. Defence isn't as good as offence on the feet and does take shots but solid chin. Takedown defence kind of sucks but get ups getting better and Burness had to walk through volume to get to the clinch. Does risk back to get up and he's not so good at getting up in the open mat where he can't use the cage to assist him. Lost a close fight.

    Jared Gordon
    "Flash"  |  20-7-0, 1 NC
    1988 - USA - UFC

    Good pressure fighter who's been on the wrong end of a couple of bad decisions. Pretty good at picking up single legs when he presses forward and good at dirty boxing in the clinch although not the most technical striker. Good gas tank and makes the opponent work. Does have to be willing to take damage when he's coming forward with the way he fights.

    Haqparst - Thought got should have got this one although probably not really a robbery. Committed to pressuring really well and was paying off in the second but just wasn't hitting quite hard enough to get Nasrat out of there. Maybe guilty of allowing Nasrat into the fight more than he should have in the 3rd. Was using untidy but very effective clinch boxing a lot when pressing into range.

    Gordon - Though he should have lost this one. Started pretty well on the back foot but started taking more and more shots as Jared pushed at him. Looked like he might get finished in the 2nd but managed to rally to have a better 3rd to get a controversial decision.

    Levy - looked fine, clearly a couple of levels above Levy. Seems to have improved back takes, would like to attack chokes more from there but turns out prefers arm triangle. Got good pressure on early to assert control of the octagon, knock his man down and go from there. Just needs to get in there more often.

    2001 - Serbia - FNC - Prospect (A+)

    Big prospect who's in the crushing journeyman Brazilians stage of his career but he's doing so with style right now. Really good power on his left hook, almost Conor like in that regard. Dangerous with kicks and big powerful knees up the middle too. He's a little bit reckless in his defence at the moment as he fights with a bit of disdain for his opponents offence which might be something he learns about the hard way at some point. Strong against the cage, good top grappling, nasty ground and pound when he gets on top, really good killer instinct when he has someone hurt, has all the makings of a future ranked UFC fighter if everything goes well for him.

    A Ribeiro - ******* nasty fighter, some of the most brutal ground and pound I've ever seen, absolutely beating the **** out of the dude, throws hard **** from on high. Snapped on an armbar to get a decisive win. Only slight concern is he has a complete disregard for his opponents offence as he comes in which he might have to tidy up at a higher level

    Pereira - Immediately crushes Brazilian journeyman with a hook. No test here.

    Paixaio - Very physical, little bit reckless maybe. Strong against the cage, just took the guy down when he got turned. Top grappling looks solid, keeps solid output of high energy stuff. Really nice flying knee and killer ground and pound for finish. Elbows on ground very nasty.

    Dude looks a problem at 155. Very fast at the weight, manages distance really well, cracks very hard and throws a good variety of free strikes. Leg kicks very good, finishing instincts very good. Will have to see what cardio is like deeper at this weight.

    Collard - Solid chin walking through a lot of Clay volume to try and get his own stuff. Likes to try and double not able to stop Clay turtling up early, isn't that great at establishing control off takedowns and better when he sweeps guys. Did do a better job establishing control in the open mat, really good cardio to keep up with a guy like Clay and take a hard fought victory.

    "Buakaw"  |  24-6-0
    1992 - Brazil - Centurion FC

    Fighting at 170 at the moment but basically fighting other lightweights so he doesn't have to cut weight and can fight more often so I'm still considering him a lightweight.

    Anyway he got caught by a head kick by Kaue Fernandes at basically the worst possible time for his career when he was on a solid run and looked like he could be on the brink of the UFC, but he's got back to work an looks like he could be there again.

    P Gomes - As a striker he's very, very hard to read, excellent at feinting and pops his shots off at times when the opponent isn't really expecting it. Very good body kicks, uses hands over face shelling defence which works well for him. Takedown defence is solid and hits hard elbows if held against the cage, good at turning round from there and getting his own takedown. Top pressure is heavy and throws constant damage until he can either get a guy out of there or force them to give him a choke. Really good fighter.

    Pitbull - A bit of a mirror match for him really as he fights fairly similarly to Patricky although he's younger and quite a bit less shop worn. Decent straight punches and had pop on them and is pretty quick. Worked body quite well, threw a lot of leg kicks but a few of them were naked. Decent cardio in a fight where both guys had been busy early but got stuck on his back a bit in the third.

    1986 - Brazil - PFL

    Veteran former Bellator champ who's kind of been pushed into the season format in PFL but it doesn't really seem to suit someone his age that well. It'll be interesting to see if he's back in it for year 2 after going 0-2 in his debut season.

    Miranda - Had to win in the first round to progress and fought like it. Got wobbled and wobbled Miranda early but being much more aggressive than usual. Eased off as he realised he couldn't qualify and got outworked to a decision loss. Pretty fast turnaround from being finished against Collard but looked past his best here.

    Super dangerous on the feet, especially early. Murdered the vast majority of his opponents in the first round and even had Radzhabov hurt. Did get taken down a lot by Loik which cost him the decision but he was working up pretty well, so if he can improve that by just a little he could become a factor.

    1997 - Guinea - Oktagon Champion - Prospect (A)

    I think 145 is really Losene's weight class but he's fine at 155 until he gets to a high level I think. He did get rocked badly in the 3rd in the Sadari fight but that's just going to have to teach him to have slightly more respect for what's coming back at him going forward. He did show a lot of heart to stay in the fight and had the instincts to wrestle to recover when hurt even if his defence never quite came back. Was solid at using hips well when hurt to shrimp out of mount and get good defensive positions back.

    Offensively he's a monster, loads of pressure, walks dudes down throwing good volume, not extreme but throws at the right times. Good sprawl when he isn't hurt, athletic get ups and explodes out of positions. Can use his own wrestling effectively and catches just about every body kick people throw at him. Cardio is good enough to keep it up for a long fight and he's really good at cutting off the cage to not give his opponent a break.

    Really good wrestler who's very athletic and has some power on the feet. Dominating everyone so far with a wrestling based and positional holding approach. Very good cardio and seems able to push a high pace for a full fight. Seems to be able to try and strike for a bit and take opponents down at will. Does do damage with ground and pound. Hasn't really run into much resistance yet so we'll have to see what occurs when that happens but looking like a great prospect at the moment. Keeps going sideways in terms of competition at the moment for some reason.

    All action fighter with a great tache who went on a mini regional tear after losing a close split decision to Prepolec. Beat a couple of UFC vets and ended up catching the attention of the PFL. Qualified for the playoffs in his first season there.

    Piccolotti - A little bit of an untidy fight for him here. Getting taken down more than usual, trying to play off the guillotine and get ups but losing control time on the bottom which cost him a close fight. Put good pressure on as usual but just not quite tight enough with the striking here.

    Getting on the old side for a lightweight but still looks competitive. Left the UFC when he was still up there on the borderline of being ranked and has done fine in ACA since.

    Abdulkhalikov - Edges forwards to get into range but sometimes just waits when he gets there which was a problem against a faster fighter like Abdulkhalikov. When he does decide to shoot he's got a solid double, I'd like him to do it more but maybe he's wary of his gas tank as he's getting older. Looks for the back well from standing positions. Solid chin so able to be persistent with the pressing forward.

    1997ish - Ireland - PFL - Prospect (A-)

    Former Cage Warriors Featherweight champ was a top tier prospect at that weight class. Whether that will translate fully to lightweight remains to be seen. Finished everyone at the weight class so far but hasn't had the same level of competition he had at 145. Looking to enter the PFL season in 2025 where he'll likely find those tests.

    King - Striking looked mostly fine with good boxing and leg kicks while putting pressure on. I do think he falls into the clinch a bit too much when he doesn't need to and he gets clipped a little bit on exits which is something he needs to tidy up. Wrestling works okay at this level but jury is out against good wrestlers. Really good when gets top position, got plenty of output with the ground and pound and got good posture to get the finish.

    Now a different proposition from the skinny kid who came in as a featherweight. Chase is becoming a man, hell he's even starting to look like he can be competitive on the feet and he dropped Slava. Top BJJ just looks excellent, maintains position beautifully through transitions and mixes ground and pound while going for subs well, definitely out of his sub hunter phase. Does really barrel into overhands which leaves his head completely exposed at times, so that could be exploited by someone at some point. Despite this he's a rapidly improving fighter.

    1993 - USA - UFC

    Seems to have limitations which are going to stop him ever getting out of the middle of the pack mire in the UFC. His grappling from top and back takes and work from there are all really good, the problem is how does he get there against anyone decent? He's good at using the guillotine to try and sweep and will jump it a lot but it only seems to work up to a certain calibre of opponent. Was very easy to pressure into the cage against Dawson, doesn't really have any TDD because he doesn't mind being on his back. Is fairly good at avoiding damage on bottom so long as he doesn't get slammed on his head.

Tough as always even if he's taken a lot of damage over his career. Reasonable power, good finishing instincts and good grappler. A little slow compared to younger strikers on the feet, always going to stay in there and keep trying.

    A nightmare for guys early, hits very hard and comes out very aggressive, throws head kicks a bit wildly to the point where he tries to put so much power on them he sometimes falls over. Good grapper early too, strong squeeze and can muscle guys down. Much less dangerous when guys survive the initial onslaught, fades quickly and tends to lose if the fight goes long.

    Finally got a shot at the regular season in PFL after 4 exhibition fights with them. Impressive flying knee victory over Piccolotti but then lost his second fight to just miss out on the playoffs.

    Rabadanov - Worn down by the wrestling over the course of the fight but his get ups were good for a lot of it. Usually likes to grapple but didn't look like that was an option for him at all against a good class wrestler like this. Used an omo plata well to create some space on the bottom before one of his get ups. Punches were fairly solid but output not great but that might just have been due to fear of the takedown.

    I kind of think of Gordeev as like Rafa Garcia at home. Same kind of style, likes to push forward primarily with boxing and try to mix in level changes though more prone to trying to crash into cage clinches. Wrestling not anything special from there but he'll stick at it and often get guys down eventually. Chin pretty solid, dropped against Artiom but that was a good shot, gassed pretty badly after that but could just be a mixture of being hurt and tired.

    Very good offensive striker with good accuracy and power. Does get clipped more on the feet by people you'd think would be worse strikers than him and dropped a bit though. Not as polished on the ground but he is very tough there and always keeps moving and trying to get out and does a good job of not staying still long enough to be stopped which will usually give him a chance at getting back into a fight.

He does push a decent pace, keep decent volume with his strikes and mix level changes in pretty well though. Just tends to get destroyed by people superior to him and chin liable to completely collapse soon with the damage he takes.

    Doesn't look the same fighter he used to be but he's had a lot of fights at this point of his career and been through multiple tournament formats.

    Szymanski - Striking is a bit stiff but does usually commit to walking people down to throw and get a hold of them. I really think his takedowns should be a bit better after all this time. Happy to attack legs etc from bottom to try and sub or sweep with them. Once he gets on top of someone his top control and back takes are a real problem, he's just not always able to consistently get there.

    One of the best fighters at having a terrible performance then pulling a win out of his arse in the world. He's explosive and powerful but extremely gassy, however when he seems gassed beyond belief he still has power on his punches and a squeeze on his chokes and quite often seems to get people to fall into them. Weirdly sometimes he performs much better against higher class fighters and gives them a decent run for their money as he did with AJ McKee.

    Kim - Looking pretty stiff and garbage for a lot of this fight, behind on the cards and then pulls out a back take and rear naked choke with a strong as **** squeeze. He can't keep getting away with it!

    Very impressive looking BJJ top player. Likes a body lock trip against the cage, if he doesn't get it he'll stick with it until he can get the turn and trip. Easily passing against decent Brazilians, getting to mount and dominating. Throws subs on fast in transition if opponent makes mistake.

    1997 - France - Ares Champion - Prospect (B-)

    Had to come through a tough test to salvage a draw against Imavov after being hurt very badly early, showed a lot of toughness to come through bad drop and keep moving and staying just about active enough for the ref not to stop it before getting back into the fight.

    Imavov - Good all round fighter generally, good cardio and decent striking although not a lot of power. Solid enough wrestler with a good double against the cage, likes to try and grab hold and back sag and hook and try little sweeps which he's really good at. Sometimes pulls guys on top of him when he goes for chokes which he needs to stop doing. Wrestling can get a little ragged as gets tired and crammed himself up a few times against Imavov by shooting and persisting with the takedown when it wasn't really there.

    Not sure he can make lightweight under normal weight cutting rules but it's where he fights in ONE so I'll list him here for now. Better offensively than defensively, good scrambling with the grappling, decent entries and finds ways of wrestling up and getting on top if he ends up on his back generally. Does risk giving up back sometimes but pretty athletic and has potential.

    Lengal - nice and aggresive early, came forward hard mixing leg kicks in with aggressive hooks. Managed to injure Lengal to the leg. Fairly safe for the most part when Lengal swinging wild at him. Superior in the grappling, pretty strong in the clinch, managed to ride top positions well and stay safe when occasionally ended up on back. Pretty easily tamed wild dude.

    Unlucky to lose the Hubbard fight, good pressure boxer but a bit limited in his offence, mainly just basic punches and leg kicks but he's good at them and good at walking dudes down to land them. Wrestling isn't that effective against actual wrestlers, ends up on his back a bit but does commit to getting up quickly.

    Galiev - His output on the feet isn't the best, tends to throw one at a time and that can lead to his entries being telegraphed. When he does get people down he's pretty solid on top and a good back taker and is good at riding rounds out in those positions.

    Brother of Nassourdine and a good fighter in his own right. Recently fought to a draw in a good fight against top prospect Axel Sola.

    Sola - Has a powerful left hook which he used to drop Sola with. Good control from top positions, likes to try and set up arm triangles. Boxing not quite as crisp as his brothers and more power based but still technically decent. Got a bit tired against Sola but that was in a 5 round title fight in which he'd put out a lot of energy early after he hurt Axel.

    Went undefeated in Belarussian regionals before moving to ACA and putting in a good run through the lower part of the division there. Lost in test against an upper echelon fighter in Adaev but was competitive.

    Adaev - I thought he put in a competitive shift against a very good fighter in this one. Was getting pressured all fight but did a good job throwing **** back. Punches pretty hard and straight and got a lot of good work done with the kicks even when had little space. Ultimately just out volumed a little bit but did enough to show me he can hang with the upper echelon of ACA guys going forward.

    Good fighter but has an unfortunate habit of pulling defeat out from the jaws of victory.

    Carlyle - He's got good straight punches and short, hooks and is fairly fast and aggressive and can mix up offensive wrestling against some opponents too. Struggled a little bit in the back bodylock against Spike but mainly just seems to suffer from the odd lapse in concentration which puts him in bad spots sometimes. Choked in a fight he was probably losing to when didn't really need to lose the back when he did.

    High level college wrestler who's won the LFA belt while maintaining his undefeated record which should put him on the cusp of the UFC although they might think he won it in too boring a fashion.

    Gennrich - Sets a high wrestling pace and gets straight on his opponent, as soon as he gets connected to a guy he's on them with takedowns and mat returns. Very good at scrambling to a good solid position on top to avoid the guy on bottom being able to get up quickly, gets his hips down quickly when he gets to where he wants to be. Solid pace of GNP but not destructive as prioritises the position. I don't think he'll ever be a good striker, his punches are a little bit short and don't have much range on them and his head movement isn't great, but so long as he doesn't start thinking he's a striker and stays committed to grappling it should take him reasonably far.

    Former Cage Warriors champion is a pretty solid hand. Pretty calm fighter who seems to have improved his ability to fight under pressure when you compare the Keita fight to the Figlak one. Accurate punching on the back foot, throws in combo and finds the target well. Decent single leg entry with a good back take too, although sometimes wrestles when he shouldn't. Had a guy as good as Keita pretty hurt and beat solid top Euro regional guys like Jack Grant and Donovan Desmae. Kind of guy who could do a job at the mid to lower end of 155 in a big promotion if he ever got the chance.

    Glass cannon, dropped to lightweight to chase a big promotion opportunity. Found one in the PFL but first season didn't go well as a weight miss left him on a negative points total. Did have extremely tough competition in all fairness to him.

    Primus - Edging forward to get into the range he wants to throw hands in, good at getting into that range. Only issue is his chin is still poor and even Primus can hurt him. Good double leg when he committed to it. Survived a period of back control against a decent level grapple but got choked in the end.

    Held - The good Szymanski is on a bit of a bad run at the moment but this fight was pretty close. He likes to peek his head around a bit and throw leg kicks but he's not a particularly dynamic striker. He's fairly decent at cage pushing and sagging and has some decent subs and is solid on top. Got stuck on the bottom against Held but that's a high level top grappler. Doesn't do so well when pressured backwards.

Good long strikes when stays calm and doesn't rush things. Likes throwing spins when gets excited.

    Really high level grappler transitioning well to MMA in a Benny Dariush style. Excellent at chokes and getting everyone with them, good enough to be finishing guys with RNC's with one arm. Striking looks fine, seems fundamentally solid defensively with a high guard and has even dropped people with straight punches. Has a nice single leg and is very strong in the clinch. Once he's on the mat he's very fast at transitions, hits passes super quick, hits back takes super quick and slaps on the aforementioned chokes quickly too. A late starter in the game but looks like he can go far, got to think the UFC will be all over how marketable a good fighter of Indian descent could be.

Fed his hips and got taken down too easily once but insta scrambled or tried to set up a triangle or use the leg game to reverse position. Good idea to use GNP to body when opponent tiring and easy mount and arm triangle. Had some slight issues with kicks up the middle early but soon adapted

    Seems determined to make a last push to have a run in the UFC but I'm not sure how well it'll go as he doesn't look like the same guy who challenged for the Bellator FW title to me. He doesn't push the pace he used to but he does still have some solid grappling. Left Bellator on a 5 fight skid but against solid competition other than probably modern day Yancy. Win over Daniel Salas was a solid win over a decent regional guy. I dunno if the UFC would give him a shot, I'd like to see him get one to top off his career if it's what he wants though.

    Petties - Not doing too much for a lot of the fight, getting to body lock and not doing a lot with it. Certainly not pushing a pace like his prime version but locked up a nice d'arce.

    Was in the UFC very young and has now kind of solidified himself as a very solid higher level regional guy. Has a good body kick on the feet, likes to try and pressure guys back if he can. Fairly good timing on double legs. Top grappling is good, he's methodical and patient, passes well but not afraid to go back to guard and start again if he needs to, doesn't panic, rush and allow the other guy to get up or reverse. Waits until he gets to a good position to open up and unleash some damage. Does drop heavy shots from mount and back once he gets there. I did think he was on the way to losing to Sardinha before the no contest but that guy looks really good.

    Kazakh training in Canada where he's fought his way to the top of the regional scene. Powerful striker and a decent grappler.

    O'Connor - He's got good blitzes and good power when he sits down on an accurate shot. Snipes shots then picks moments to blitz and landing at a decent clip, landing down the middle well. A bit frustrating how he fell into the clinch after a flurry a lot against a guy that clearly wanted to grapple with him which probably killed his chances of a finish here. Takedown defence and get ups against the cage solid but would like to see him avoid the cage clinch more as a more athletic grappler than O'Connor might give him issues there.

    Cortti - easy night, caught kick and dropped brutal ground and pound for finish.

    Kind of the poor man's version of his brother but still solid enough. Good enough hands and takedown defence to hold off mid level guys but as soon as he runs into someone with really good wrestling or striking towards the top half of the division in ACA he tends to lose.

    1990 - Mongolia - Tuff-N-Uff

    Man, this one is a mouthful to pronounce. Was in ONE years ago but has since relocated to the US to train and is looking pretty solid. He's got a good prodding front kick which he uses regularly and he's got a good variety of kicks in general. Nailed Jaynes with a beautiful spinning heel kick which Edson Barboza would have been proud of. Good killer instinct to follow up with good ground and pound. Loss to Egli isn't a great look but I haven't seen that one.

    1993 - Kazakhstan - Naiza FC

    Weirdly inconsistent fighter. Loses to some guys who on paper are much lower level than him and then has some pretty decent performances to beat some solid, experienced guys. Difficult to know what you're going to get from him. Just needs to find consistency, not sure how you beat guys like Abbasov, Manchinha and Limberger and lose to random 6-4 guys in between sometimes.

    Abbasov - He's fundamentally fine, with decent level changes and decent hooks and leg kicks. He does get stuck in the back body lock position for a while.Just about did enough in a close fight, didn't get caught in a brawl with Abbasov which was smart.

    "Bayraktar"  |  29-6-0
    1994 - Azerbaijan - Fight Nights Global

    Had a great run leading up his Contender Series fight with Ismael Bonfim but things have gone a bit off the rails for Nariman since. He's good if he can get into a bit of a brawl as he hits hard enough to cause accumulative damage and he's got a very solid chin and the cardio to keep fighting that way. Problem is people seem to have figured out that if you don't engage him in that style of fight he runs out of ideas a bit and his punches are a bit too winged for him to win a technical fight at range.

    Rafikov - seems a bit short on ideas if he can't brawl, not bad at hanging on back bodylock but not doing much with it, good at making sure he's doing something, bit slow, keeps coming, punches a bit too winged to land consistently. Fairly close fight.

    1993 - USA - LFA

    Lewis - Former LFA champ found a good wrestler with good base like Lewis too much for him. He's a black belt in BJJ but doesn't have the athleticism or strength to make much happen against someone who's also a good grappler who's strong like that. Tough and looked hard to finish though, not really ever in major trouble. Good cardio and good at peppering on the feet even if he lacks power. Lack of athleticism probably gives him a ceiling but he's game.

    Bobby King
    Bobby King
    1983 - Bellator - USA

    Veteran who had a late career run in Bellator which went better than expected but his prospect derailing seems to have stopped and he's now crossed the 40 barrier so as a lightweight he's probably not going to make a resurgance.

    Hughes - Did okay early on against top prospect. Chin is still there as ate a couple of decent shots on the feet and clipped Hughes once too. Happy to fire back when under assault which Hughes had to respect. Fairly strong when has his back to cage but not so good when actually ends up on back and more tried to survive until he lost posture control on Hughes and got finished.

    Cossio - Just outworked and out hustled in this one. Dude just doesn't do enough unless he's against someone low-mid level.

    Torres - did a bad job defending leg kicks early which caused him issues all fight. Swings wild, don't like the way he bobs and weaves going backwards into the cage. Solid heart and kept trying. Dunno why he was trying to wrestle in the third when he needed a finish with open scoring.

    Pretty famous in Korea having appeared on Physical 100 with Sexyama. Parlayed that into a decent run on Road to UFC before getting eliminated by Rongzhu in the semi finals.

    Sasaki - fighting a dude in his mid 40s, going the wrestling route, singles, doubles and mat returns all working well but opponent has very poor takedown defence. Easily able to press into wrestling range when the opposition is old and slow. Feels more confident coming forward and unleashing the hands a bit when the guy is tired and backed up against the cage. Dominant performance but really should be getting a finish.

    Decent Dutch style kickboxer with a good high kick, doesn't have a lot of power on his punches but technically fine. Not very good at staying off the cage when people try to pressure him for clinches. TDD and get ups both suck, tries to engage in BJJ from the bottom. Does have some sneaky chokes for low level guys who try and shoot too much on him but doesn't work on good level guys.

    Muay Thai guy with a bit of a weird career so far. Got finished a few times by low level dudes in Brazil but is now doing well on ONE FNF and looking pretty good doing it.

    Morozov - He's quite poised as a striker with a good jab, leg kicks and a high kick he tends to bring in later. He's not high paced but he's accurate when he throws and he has fast hands and decent combos when he does. Defends takedowns pretty well when he can get double unders and when he does get taken down he's got good urgency to get back up.

Easy defeat at the hands of Leavitt raises questions about future at this level. Struggled with a taller fighter in the Nolan fight, just doesn't seem to have the skills required to do much in the UFC.

    Nick Fiore
    1997 - USA - Combat FC

    Flitting between 155 and 170 since his UFC release to get fights but I'd say he's still a lightweight for now. Kept pretty active since his getting cut and taking on tougher competition than he did prior to his UFC stint which I think is a good idea as the step up last time was just too much. Striking and wrestling don't look great, doesn't level change or trip enough on the fence. If he does get on top he's very good there though, riding though positions well and doing good damage and looking for subs. Wouldn't rule out a UFC return one day as he had some tough matchups when he was there.

    Aggressive young guy who's trying to find the balance between his natural aggression and over compensating and being too passive. Competitive with Todynho before getting knocked out and bounced back with a decent win over a journeyman where he was a bit too patient initially but looked a lot better once he stepped things up. Cracks hard when he steps in.

    1983 - Belarus - ACA

    Solid veteran, uses a Philly shell type of striking defence, carries front hand very low. Pretty good at countering guys as they come forward, has some power if lands clean. Takedown defence against the cage pretty good but does get clinched there a lot. Decent body kicks in short range. Cardio pretty solid, withstood a lot of pressure against Gordeev to crack him in the 5th and nearly finish.

    Badly exposed in his UFC debut and really needs to go away and work on his get ups. Not that mad about his takedown defence as Padilla had a decent double leg, but he kept rushing up, ended up giving his back and then had awful choke defence. Good leg kicks and decent pressure boxing and still young so maybe he can turn it around, but not promising.

    Very solid striker who does well on the Aussie regionals. Tall for the weight and pretty quick, with nice long punches and kicks. Good when he gets momentum going forward but maybe not quite as comfortable on the back foot.. Has a nice standing guillotine he can use if guys are careless when clinching with him. Slight concern about his chin after the Webb KO and then taking a kickboxing fight and getting badly KO'd in that too.

Offered nothing off his back and got mounted and arm triangled but it looked like he didn't want to be there because he was gassed at that point and I think he pretty much gave it away

    Kamilov - Tried his best in this one. Tough because he was in there with a guy who hit much harder than him that he was finding hard to hold down. Got cracked a lot but hung in there and kept trying to get inside and take him down. Good commitment and pressure.

    Kickboxer who's better than his record suggests because he jumped in at the deep end when he started out in MMA. Didn't bother taking a step down in competition and has now evened his record out.

    Case - Activity is a bit low, maybe because he's worried about being taken down but his get ups are quite good so I'm not sure why. Striking is good when he throws enough. Good win over an experienced opponent who'd had a terrible weight cut.

    2000ish - Italy - PFL

    Not bothered about who he fights having signed on to fight highly regarded prospects Habirora and Ewen in consecutive bouts. Upset the apple cart against Ewen.

    Ewen - was getting picked apart when it was technical but when he decided to just go forward and start winging bombs at him he had much more success. Very good aggression and output, just throwing big shots and bad takedown attempts but it worked.

    Hyped prospect who was looking smooth until he got outhustled by a random bomb swinging Italian. Going to have to really rebound from the Pacella fight but has the ability to do so.

    Pacella - When he's going forward he looks very good, he's very good at feinting and uses it to keep pressure on and get a range where he can keep his opponent off beat and pick them apart with a good variety of offence. Started to really struggle going backwards when Pacella just decided to **** all that off and just go forward and wing overhands at him. Defence going backwards isn't good and was tagged and backed into the cage multiple times, chin seemed okay though. Slight worry about power as he couldn't manage to dissuade Pacella from just coming at him over and over.

    Sagliani - still insanely hittable, hurt very early but is a proper warrior and fought through to survive being very badly hurt to make the first quite close. Good cardio and poured it on his opponent as the fight went on, drowning him with volume on the feet and effective if kind of spazzy wrestling with active ground and pound.

Double legs looked alright but struggled to hold top position consistently, striking looking lungy, not really setting things up and just throwing wide hooks. A good fighter if he's taking the game seriously but needs to prove that he's doing that.

    Former PFL and DWCS guy is pretty much a once a year regional journeyman at this point. He's okay though.

    Sanchez - only throws one at a time but he's pretty athletic so his strikes are pretty fast when he actually puts some out there. Mainly tries to confuse people with hand movement to set the strikes up. Screwed up the D'arce/Anaconda defence against Sanchez but that was the first time he's been subbed.

    1992ish - England - Cage Warriors

    Seems to have decided to go all aggression now. Got clipped against the Polish kid but recovered and got back on the high pace and aggression and got him out of there. Very good work rate, but don't know if he could have kept that up for three rounds.

    1999 - Ireland - Combate Global

    Solid striker offensively, I like his 1,2s down the middle and he's scrappy and fights at a good pace. Not so hot in the grappling, got mounted very easily against Gonzalez. Can be a little bit hittable defensively. Fight IQ very questionable, seen him decide to shoot on a guy that he was getting absolutely dominated by on the mat in the previous round and then get subbed.

    Israel - LFA

    Renteria - takedown defence terrible but get ups pretty good so kind of made up for it here. Taken down three times in the round but didn't take any damage. Unleashed some pretty powerful punches on the feet to get the stoppage against an opponent with terrible striking defence.

    1995 - Brazil - Jungle Fight Champion

    Stiff and hittable, got dropped a couple of times in title fight but very tough and fought through it to manage to take over in the 2nd round after he looked pretty cooked to me. Seems like he's a bit too hittable to have much success at a high level though.

    Brazil - Jungle Fight

    Was looking pretty solid early on in Jungle Fight title fight, catching pretty stiff opponent and dropping and nearly finishing him. Seemed to run out of gas in the 2nd, and when he ended up on his back he lost the back easily and got choked quickly.

    1998 - England - Cage Warriors

    Cohen - Gut check fight for Cullen, dug deeper than I've seen him do before. Got taken down a lot, had some decent half guard sweeps, likes to go under the leg with them so at risk of damage and did get a bad cut. Cardio held up well in a super tough fight and won the third. Couldn't seem to keep opponent off him enough to work striking.

    Dorsainvil - totally outworked by a guy who I think was better than anyone was expecting, just driven back constantly and couldn't get past the high volume of opponent to get into the fight.

    1997 - Mexico - Lux Fight League

    Ruiz - Style is allegedly Olympic wrestler but I couldn't really see any evidence of that as his takedown defence sucked especially from back bodylock. Throws hard on the feet but overthrows a lot and ends up very off balance. Cardio and desire was there as came back from a bad first round to wear out an opponent who seems to be a bit of a quitter.

    1996 - France - Bellator

    Started his career 6-0 but then lost in a title fight to a streaking Brazilian. Given a fight in Bellator anyway where he got fed to Darragh Kelly in what was probably a one shot deal.

    D Kelly - Short fight, kept putting his head in a dangerous position when going for takedowns and got guillotined which everyone but him saw coming.

    "El Chévere"  |  9-0-0
    2001 - Ecuador - Samurai Fight House

    Kind of a sloppy brawler, not sure how seriously he takes his career. Took his last fight at 170 for some reason and looked like a fat dad at the beach, if he's in shape he's probably a bantamweight. Good chin, keeps coming forward and throwing, does do damage with wild hooks. When he fought at 145 he could push a real pace too, hopefully we get that version back.

    "The General"  |  6-1-0
    1997 - Russia - ONE Championship

    Pereira - Looked pretty awful in his FNF debut. Looks to be very much a grappler, mainly relying on upper body clinches as his lower body shots are awful and telegraphed. Not really that good in the bodylock either and struggles to keep control when he does get someone down. Terrible at striking from range, needs to pile in throwing overhands to get into the clinch. Striking defence no good, gets tagged constantly coming forward and doesn't defend calf kicks well. Also gassy when the fight is going against him.

    2000 - Nicaragua - Lux Fight League

    Corrales - had a good first round when he got given back bodylock and had some good takedowns from there. Took back okay but couldn't finish. Only seems to be able to wrestle from back and didn't make a push to get there, doesn't seem to like getting hit, faded had nothing off his back in the second round and got subbed in the third . Looked like he mentally gave up to me

    1996 - USA - Fury FC

    Dixon - very herky jerky, jumps into things seems to be trying to throw hard but leaving himself open to counters. Pretty terrible off his back, only got up or got on top when Dixon tried a triangle. Not an impressive showing.

    1987 - Japan - RIZIN

    Usami - Came back after a three year layoff against Usami and looked like he shouldn't have bothered. Looked slow going forward on the feet and defensively and was reaching badly for takedowns. Got KO'd by opponent swarming him as soon as he had the smallest bit of success.

    I think mentally he's still willing and still believes he can make it back to the UFC but his body just doesn't allow him to be competitive anymore. Losing much more than he's winning since getting cut and looks slower and more hittable than ever.

    2003ish - Benin - Ares

    Kind of spazzy but dude has heart, seems to be learning on the job and got stuck in a lot of deep subs against Baillot but was able to gut through them and put a pace on a very gassy opponent to get him out of there.

    Decent striker, nice high kick which he times pretty well and fairly sharp hands. Takedown defence pretty **** and get ups not great, can be pushed back into the cage pretty easily.

    Pretty limited, seems quite tough, likes to try and get on top and wrestle but takedowns not great and doesn't really get much damage off on top. Seems like he's a good guy to get some time in the cage against for prospects.

    Struggled with the aggression of Power in their fight. Did manage to land a good counter and clip him but then faded under the pressure and got finished when Power kept coming. Record doesn't suggest he's anything special.

    Struggled in step up to high level Euro regional competition. Did okay in the guard of Q-Bomb early on, but once he ended up on his back he couldn't do much except constantly give his back and then mount over and over.

    A Davis - somehow managed to get dropped by Alfie Davis. Stiking defence pretty poor, gets tagged a lot. Is game and keeps coming, top BJJ not too bad, uses front headlock to get snapdowns quite well.
