MMA Sun 2014 Prospect Spotlight: The Welterweights – #6 – Walter Gahadza

Our number 6 welterweight prospect is British fighter Walter Gahadza.  The 26-year old fighter has a perfect 13-0 mark.  In those 13 wins, GahadzaGahadza has finished 11 of his opponents.  Nicknamed “The Sniper”, Gahadza is one of the most promising prospects in England right now.  Born in Zimbabwe, Africa, Walter trained as a sprinter before making the transition to mixed martial arts.  Training under the likes of Royce Gracie black belt, Daniel Burzotta, Gahadza is bound to improve.

The current UWC welterweight champion has shown the ability to win fights in various ways.  Gahadza has a  good ground game which is seen by his five wins via submission.  He also has a good overall grappling game.  He has decent takedowns, especially from the clinch.  His top control is very solid.  One thing that stood out was his knees from the clinch position.  He is big and strong for the weight class.  He also seems to hit very hard.  His game could really be defined as explosive.  It is our observation that on pure athleticism and natural talent that Gahadza could go very far.  He is a guy that probably doesn’t realize how good he is or can be.  He somewhat reminds of Jimi Manura in his style, but he probably has a better ground game.  Gahadza has not fought the stiffest of competition.  He has stepped it up some as of late, but I am curious how he will do against tougher fighters.

He will get his chance to get a signature win, as he is scheduled to take on fellow MMA Sun welterweight prospect Ryan Scope in February.  I believe the winner of that fight could be on the cusp of a UFC offer.  Gahadza is a guy with loads of potential and if that potential is going to be realized 2014 is the year.
