MMA Sun 2014 Prospect Spotlight: The Welterweights Recap

The welterweight division in MMA has always been stacked with talent. 2014 is no exception. Our list took a hit about a week before the reveal. The UFC signed Alexander Yakovlev, Mike Rhodes and George Sullivan, all of whom were scheduled to be in our top 5. Thankfully, there were suitable guys to jump into our top ten.

A few of the guys really stood out to me on this list. Marcin Bandel really stood out and he could be the guy most likely to get signed to the UFC next. I also really enjoyed watching the fights of Vlad Popovskiy. Tom Breese may have the most long term potential on this top ten.

There were also a few guys that did not make the top 10 that you could make a strong case for…
1. Marcio Alexandre – 12-0
2. Aslambek Saidov – 15-3
3. Matus Laincz – 13-2

All three of the above fighters have very strong resumes and could end up in the UFC sooner rather than later. The list goes on. The welterweights seems to replenish with talent as fast as any division in the sport.
