Featherweight Talent

Featherweight is loaded with young talent. It just is.

The past few years the UFC has signed a lot of young featherweights.

Who would you want each fighter to fight next? Also who are the ones you think will be the most successful in the ufc.

Brian Ortega
Age: 26
Record: 12-0. UFC Record: 4-0 (4 third round finishes, first person to ever have 4 in a row in ufc history)
Who he should fight next: Ricardo Llamas
Potential: A-

Jason Knight
Age: 25
Record: 20-3. UFC Record: 4-2
Who he should fight next: Denis Bermudez
Potential: B+


Grant Dawson
Age: 23
Record: 13-1 (all finishes) UFC record 0-0 (1-0 on Danas Tuesday night Contenders)
Who he should fight next: Enrique Barzola
Potential: A-



Humberto Bandalay
Age: 23
Record: 14-4 UFC Record: 1-0
Who he should fight next: Some random jobber he can crush because he needs a bit more time to develop.

Ortega is a future contender.

He is famous for his slick submissions but striking was his first sport. He had been boxing since he was a little kid.

That not only makes a bigger threat on the feet than most high level bjj guys, but he is also really composed standing, he isnt going to get panicked when things get tough.

Plus he has the dreamiest eyes of any Mexican

Makwan Amirkhani is also a good FW prospect.

He lost to Allen but it was close.

My cut off was 28, which I believe Makwan is. However I do agree he is quite a talented fighter

If he learns some standup, how to be comfortable on the feet, and sets up his takedowns well with camouflaged strikes he can really improve leaps and bounds.
