    Keep an eye on Karl Reed.

    Ranked NCAA D2 wrestler, current coach for the Limestone College D2
    wrestling program. Wonderboy’s main training partner and Ray Thompson’s
    main prodigy (aside from his son of course). He also does training camps
    with Chris Weidman. He’s been training under Ray for a few years now,
    so his karate kickboxing is evolving fast. He weighs in at about 230,
    and moves like a WW. Basically he’s a super athletic wrestler with
    Wonderboy’s striking.
