    Not if you take into consideration that guy looks like he was created in a cauldron of PED's.

    Until he pops out, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    Really? You could do a cycle just by looking at him too long.

    I considered him, given he's only had 3 UFC fights but he's had an extensive career outside of the UFC. Bellator and M-1 champion. Almost 40 pro fights. I think most would be hard pressed to call him a prospect at this point.

    Erik Silva is the prospect of the decade...






























    Because at his age it will be 10 years before he truly hits the scene.

    Alexander Volkov? He's got 35 pro fights. Definitely shouldn't be considered a prospect at that point.

    Hard to pick because all of them are beasts. Looking forward to all of their future fights.


    But the only correct answer is Erick Silva.

    Some great options, and a tough choice. I've gone for the guy who is likely to go the furthest in his division, IMO......Zabit Magomedsharipov.

    Went with Zabit, not sure about Borrachina passing drug tests.
