10 Best MMA Flyweight Prospects of 2014

#1: Henry Cejudo

Henry Cejudo was my #1 Bantamweight prospect in 2013, but since then, Cejudo has officially made the move to Flyweight despite having some recent weight cutting issues. Due to Cejudo missing weight on more than one occasion, some questions are starting to arise on whether Cejudo is truly committing himself towards being a future UFC champion. There have been a few in the MMA media that have stated Cejudo treats MMA more as a hobby than anything else. Cejudo has a ton of outside the cage projects going on as he’s still trying to capitalize on his Olympic wrestling fame. If Cejudo can stay committed to MMA, he certainly has the skills to be a future top contender. His wrestling is unparalleled and you can quickly see that he’s made some strides with his grappling and positioning. His striking has gotten him in some trouble, but he’s proven to have a rock solid chin. Cejudo is currently signed to Legacy FC. In his last fight, he was able to grind out fellow prospect Elias Garcia. Yet, the biggest test of his career was recently announced as he will face heavy-hitter and former UFC and WEC fighter Damacio Page for the Legacy FC Flyweight Championship.

Hello everyone! I truly appreciate your support for RankingMMA and my efforts towards providing MMA World Rankings, UFC Rankings, Prospect Rankings, and Analysis. I started this site way back in 2006 (originally named MMAsurvival until 2009) as a huge MMA fan with absolutely no web design or blogging experience. Over 10 million page views later and 13 years later, the site continues on because of you! The first few years of the site I produced daily content from fight announcements, rankings, and fight card previews and analysis. That effort eventually slowed down as my career took off. Since then, I focused on some passion projects such as writing my first book, The World’s Top MMA Fighters in 2012 and the MMA Prospects Report in 2013. With a full-time job and family, my available time continued to shrink over the last 5 years. I do my very best to update all rankings sections weekly and will be working on new content for the site. It has been an amazing experience to see the sport globalize. Over 30% of my site traffic now comes from outside North America. You must know that your support is what has kept me updating the site all these years. Please feel free to email me at dcross@rankingmma.com or leave a comment on the site. Cheers, DC
