10 Best MMA Featherweight Prospects of 2014

#4: Marat Gafurov

Marat Gafurov is the reigning M-1 Featherweight champion, having recently defended his title against American prospect Lee Morrison. Gafurov has a grinding-type style similar to Khabib Nurmagomedov. He recently switched camps from Legion Fight Team over to the lesser known Fighting Eagle. Gafurov used to fight at 155 lbs., and holds a split decision win over current UFC Lightweight Mairbek Taisumov. Ever since Gafurov dropped down to 145 lbs., he has looked more and more impressive. He is well-rounded in all areas of the fight game. His striking is still limited, but it’s enough for him to close the distance and get his opponent to the ground where he can attack with a wide arsenal of submissions. Gafurov will likely be tied down with M-1 for the next couple of years, but it would be no surprise to see him find immediate success in the UFC or Bellator.
