Frolov is a solid prospect out of Russia who has given glimpses of what he can be.  Frolov has shown that he can have power in his punches.  His striking has very much improved from his earlier fights to this point.  Frolov does not look incredibly explosive, but has shown himself to effective on the feet.  I believe that he can also get suckered into wild exchanges.  Oddly enough, he has done very well in those exchanges.There were moments on the ground where Frolov looked very solid.  He has some submissions skills to go with his solid grappling ability.  He is sometimes a bit quick to go for a submission without first securing his positioning.  One of the most impressive aspects to Frolov’s game was his ability to end in a favorable position during scramble situations.  However, it does seem like in many of his fights Frolov lands in a bad position at some point.  I would like to see him be a little more concerned about positioning.  Frolov has only been fighting professionally since 2014, so he certainly is a little green in some places.  However, I believe he is one of the brightest prospects at middleweight.
