Last week was a wild one for prospect development in MMA. We saw a bunch of young stars take their first big swing at the tops of their divisions and most of them succeeded. Aljamain Sterling put a hurting on Takeya Mizugaki, Beneil Dariush smothered Jim Miller, and Paige VanZant showed Felice Herrig the door. Unfortunately young LHW talent continued to struggle as still developing Patrick Cummins and Corey Anderson both hit hard walls. This week, we’re looking forward to Thomas Almeida and Kyoji Horiguchi and hoping to see some more big flashes of potential from Olivier Aubin-Mercier.
We’re also talking recent TUF performances from Kamaru Usman and Nikolas Motta, as well as ACB 15 which saw Rahman Dzanaev, Abdurahman Temirov and many more of our scouted Russian fighters show up and put on a show. So, check the whole show out, and if you can’t watch it on Ooyala, it’s also available on YouTube. While you’re there, give the show a “Like” and remember to subscribe to MMANATIONDOTCOM for more BE interviews and analysis.
