Brok Weaver 2019 Dana White Contender Series fighter makes his debut against Rodrigo Vargas in the main card of the Anderson vs Blachowicz. Major opportunity for Brok Weaver to make a statement and to show him as a Welterweight Prospect.
Brok Weaver Regional Career
Weaver pre UFC fought for Southeast Regional MMA promotion Island Fights fighting regional prospects. High level prospects like Sean O’ Malley, Geoff Neal and Edmen Shabazyan most of the time run through the regional circuit but Brok Weaver struggled.
Fighters would give up with losses, Not winning any titles but Weaver kept training and fighting.
Eventually having a six fight winning streak that attracted UFC!
Weaver UFC career begins on February 15th vs Rodrigo Vargas. Weaver will he part of the successful Dana White Contender Series alumni, Be a rising prospect in the UFC Welterweight division or a bust that goes 0-3 in the UFC.
Geoff Neal Dana White Contender Series alumni impressed his way to victory in his last fight against Mike Perry. Fighting on the UFC 245 spotlight and was one of the stand out fighters at UFC 245. Finished 2019 right and time to start 2020 better and fighting Michael Chiesa is best way to start!!
Geoff Neal time to fight TOP TEN – TOP FIFTEEN opponents and Chiesa is one of those opponents. Chiesa best win of his career was his latest by defeating Rafael Dos Anjos. Two of the hottest Welterweights in UFC Neal vs Chiesa definitely a fight people would watch!!
Neal Calls out Chiesa
Geoff Neal at the UFC 247 Media Scrum took advantage of the MMA media attention given to him and called out Michael Chiesa.
Trash talking build the fight, Ask and you should receive. Demanding the fight and time for Neal to be rewarded of the fight against Michael Chiesa.
Most fighters wouldn’t have the courage to fight Michael Chiesa but because Geoff Neal is confident in his skills having Sayif Saud as Head Coach at Fortis MMA to help guide this man to becoming a UFC Welterweight Champion.
Part of the journey to UFC Welterweight Gold is against Michael Chiesa.
Arman Tsarukyan 14-2 Lightweight at 23 years old 1-1 with the UFC. Fighter from Armenia is a fighter to be excited for in 2020. Promising future ahead of in the UFC Lightweight Division and will all watch that promise in 2020.
Last win was against Olivier Aubin-Mercier at UFC 240 Holloway vs Edgar showcased his wrestling, Developed striking and UFC Lightweight Champion potential. Dominating Olivier Aubin Mercier with his grappling. At UFC Russia debut Arman Tsarukyan lost to Islam Makhachev but was really impressive against the next Khabib Nurmagomedov..
2020 Arman Tsarukyan will let MMA fans know who he is rising up the UFC Lightweight rankings defeating fighters such as Drew Dober, David Teymur, Yancy Medeiros in his 2020 campaign.
Arman end of the year potential to be top fifteen UFC Lightweight because of the UFC Lightweight’s he’s previous beaten. Talked about by the end of the year as one of the next Lightweight Champions in the next couple years.
2020 what I’ll like to see from Arman is a well developed striking game fight by fight and stand up game as well. When facing top 10-15 Lightweights being a one dimensional fighter will not cut it and 2020 developing a stand up game is a MUST.
No reason to work on it when he has talent of greatness. Nothing sadder than waste of talent and Arman has all the talent in the world!!
Nathaniel Wood 16-3 Bantamweight UFC prospect at 26 years old is on the rise and his upcoming fight against John Dodson is a fight I can’t WAIT to watch. Wood is a potential UFC Bantamweight Champion training out of Great Britain Top Team.
Nathaniel Wood coach is former Bantamweight legend Brad Pickett, Pickett and Wood are the right relationship. Pickett coaching a potential UFC Bantamweight Champion.
Wood upcoming fight is against a solid Bantamweight John Dodson moving up from Flyweight. Dodson fought for the Flyweight Title against Demetrious Johnson. Toughest fight so far… In Nathaniel Wood’s career.
“I was watching Dodson on The Ultimate Fighter when I was just a fanboy,” he said. “He’s been in there with the best, he’s fought for the belt twice, so to go against him, not only is it quite surreal for me, but it would one hundred percent put me in the top rankings. The names of the people he’s fought, no one could finish him, so if I can go in there and either A) knock him out or B) submit him, where does that put me in line compared to everyone else? It’s a lot of pressure, but it’s very exciting as well. It’s a big fight for me, but there will be a lot of reward come the win.”
2019 Nathaniel Wood fought once because of injuries but now in 2020 will see the RISE of Nathaniel Wood!! Ranked 5-10 by the end of year becoming one of the exciting Bantamweights will see.
Must get pass John Dodson who spoil the show and prove to people he’s still here to stay but however Nathaniel Wood is a world class hungry fighter desiring for that title shot in 2021. Becoming one of the best Bantamweights of all time.
Dan Ige defeated Mirsad Bektic on the UFC 247 Main Card. Dominating Bektic in the striking game. Best opportunity for Ige to showcase his talents. Super Sodiq Yusuff beat Andre Fili at UFC 246 Prelims, My opinion was the stand out fighter for UFC 246 showing his potential as a future champion. Dan Ige vs Sodiq Yusuff UFC 249 Fight!!
Both fighters fought the full three rounds but wasn’t a lot damage considering they fought three rounds. Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard schedule this bout for UFC 249. Definitely a fight that fans want to see.
Ige beating former #1 2014 MMA Prospect Mirsad Bektic showed the world who Dan Ige is and deserves tougher opponents. Yusuff 11-1 record 4-0 with the UFC is the perfect opponent for Dan Ige.
Sodiq Yusuff #14th ranked UFC Featherweight while Dan Ige is close to being a top 15 UFC Featherweight.
Impressive win for Soqiq Yusuff defeating Dan Ige will raise his stock, More fans will acknowledge Yusuff as a POTENTIAL UFC Featherweight Champion. Win for Dan Ige shows the world he’s a future Featherweight Champion who has been under looked but not anymore.
UFC 249 Dan Ige vs Sodiq Yusuff definitely a fight I want to see.
Juan Adams, 28 years old lost to Greg Hardy and Arjan Bhullar in 2019 but in 2020 will see a reborn Juan Adams and become a Heavyweight prospect in 2020. Adams fight Justin Tafa in the main card of UFC 247.
Juan Adams left Paradigm Training Center and now had Jackson Wink MMA Academy one of the best Gyms in the world. One of the best decisions he’ll make in his life. Greg Jackson fix the errors in his game during training and he’ll be fighter of the night for UFC 247.
UFC is hungry for young Heavyweight Prospects and Juan Adams because of switching gyms, Different mindset see a new and improved Juan Adams.
“I feel extremely confident entering this fight. My whole outlook is I’m excited to get to practice and work with people,” Adams said. “I’m surrounded by high-level athletes that force me to be on my stuff. Always.”
“I’m either going to knock him out or get a TKO. Once he feels my power, he is going to try and do something stupid. I’m going to capitalize on that. My wrestling, my positioning, all that is superior to his,” Adams concluded. “So, when he feels my power and tries to close the distance and get into a clinch he is going to end up on the ground and on the ground, my ground and pound is game-changing.”
