  • EBobonis

    I am bit bias but “Shah Bobonis” with a streak of 7 wins with more impressive competition of some of the fighters you got in your list should be in.

    • admin

      Bobonis is on my radar, especially after his 3rd knockout of Marcos da Matta in Bellator. As for being ranked above the prospects I have listed, Bobonis has yet to defeat a “big name” opponent. He doesn’t have the unblemished record that some bantamweight prospects have, so he will need to make up for it by racking up some wins over stiffer competition. Bobonis’ manager needs to carefully book him in his next few fights so he can hopefully extend his winning streak and sign on with Bellator or World Series of Fighting. Bobonis would be a good fit for TUF as well.
