MMA Prospects Rankings FAQ    
MMA Prospects Rankings are comprised of any undefeated fighter that has not fought in the UFC.
Fighters are ranked in order by their record, with tiebreakers going to strength of schedule.

Here are some additional rankings criteria:
*Fighters must be active within the last 15 months.
*Fighters will be ranked in their primary divisions, even though they may have temporarily fought in a different weight class.
*If a fighter signs with the UFC, they will not be removed from these Prospect Rankings until they have officially debuted.
*Rankings are updated weekly.

We use the Sherdog, Tapology, and Fight Matrix for fighter results.
All fighters are linked to their Sherdog profile by clicking on their name.

    There is a Guy tearing through all of his competition out of Manhattan Ks. Names Jake “the Librarian Lindsey”. He trains with Joe Wilk and Dave caveman Rickels who just won the last lightweight bellator title.. currently Lindsey is 8-0 having never lost a fight at the amateur level either so his personal streak is at 15-0. BTW hey Brock. Im currently training Jiujitsu with your old high school pal Anthony Nelson

    • D.C. Ross

      Yes, Linsdey is on my radar for the LW portion of the Prospects Report. His last win over Freeman really got my attention. Thanks for the heads up. If you have any other names let me know. Also, Rickels is a beast. I think he’s going to give Chandler all he can handle.

  • Brock Larson

    Tony Martin 6-0 just beat Philip Nover who just won in bellator and has finished all opponents up till Nover which was a unanimous dec

      I had Martin as my #26 lightweight prospect, but seeing as Nover just beat top prospect Darrell Horcher, Martin will be moving up a spot and officially listed. Thank you for the update, just curious, I don’t see his 6th win listed on Sherdog. Thanks Brock, and good job on your recent 4-fight win streak. Wins over Manhoef and Pamplona are as solid as they come.

    • S.E.G SD

      Brock is exactly right! Tony beat one of my guys pretty handily and has beaten many good fighters on their way to 8-0.

      • D.C. Ross

        Martin’s stock is on the rise. I wish there was more video available on YouTube of his fights. There’s only his submission win over Ellis (12-53 overall), and the win over Kuchlong. I would like to see his Nover fight.
