Top 20 MMA prospect update: the case for Dmitriy Sosnovskiy, Jan Jorgensen & Satoshi Ishii entering UFC heavyweight fold

April 17, 2014


Over the next eight weeks ULTMMA.com (www.ULTMMA.com) will review their 2013 prospect rankings and ratings of 160 prospects from heavyweight through flyweight. While reviewing last year's rankings we will also reveal the top 20 prospects in each major MMA weight class to "watch out for" in 2014.

A barren wasteland of large human beings with subpar cardio. The UFC employs roughly 30 heavyweights on its roster. Outside of the UFC it's not a barren wasteland but most athletes weighing over 225 pounds tend to gravitate towards other sports that don't involve face punching inside a cage. At the back end of the UFC roster there are some questionably signings with room for better fighters to get their shot.

Regional heavyweight MMA fights are mostly difficult to watch. Entering 2014 there are at least 20 heavyweight MMA prospects with UFC or even Bellator aspirations. Is there an athletically blessed big man flying under the UFC's radar?
