2014 MMA Sun Prospect Spotlight Breakdown

We decided to look back through our prospect spotlight to see how it all played out.  We wanted to see a few things.  First, we wanted to see what countries and what established promotions produced the most top level prospects.  Second, we wanted to see how those guys have done since being featured.  Several have been signed to the UFC and many others had opportunities with other promotions since our publication.  Here is how it breaks down.
