The UFC’s current roster is brimming with exceptional up-and-coming prospects. While UFC Glasgow (UFC Fight Night 113) has yet to announce any of the big name fights that we have become accustomed to, it is brimming with potential for notable young talent. Our prospects writer Shawn Bitter has highlighted some of that great talent he’d like to see called up for FN:113 in the paragraphs below.
Fly, Pietro Menga (13-0):
Menga is the more deserving for a UFC call up than anyone else on this list. With the UFC needing all the Flyweights they can get and Menga is one of the best outside the UFC. He has got a perfect undefeated record winning two separate titles in his career. Not sure why he isn’t already in the UFC by now but with all these Flyweight signings recently his name can’t be too far behind.
FW, Dean Garnett (9-0):
Garnett proved his last fight when he fought top prospect Michael Tobin that he is one of the best prospects out of the UK. He beat the hell out of Tobin looking amazing offensively and even better defensively at the same time finishing Tobin in the 2nd round. Garnett might just have the brightest future in his career from everyone else on my list.
WW, Lewis Long (15-4):
In the last 3 years Long has gone 8-1 with his only loss to former UFC fighter Andreas Stahl. Since that loss, he has won his next three fights including a win over top prospect Ryan Scope finishing him by RNC in the 1st round. Long’s win over Scope was for the M4TC title. He just recently beat Che Mills this past weekend in only 18 seconds due to a knee injury.
LHW, Karl Moore (8-1):
LHW is the weakest division in the UFC. Moore who just recently won the LHW Cage Warriors title back in March can’t be far from a UFC call up. Moore’s sole loss has been to UFC fighter Paul Craig which in my opinion Moore is the better fighter and has the brighter future he was just caught in their fight.
HW, James Mulheron (11-1):
Much like LHW, HW is a division in the UFC that is slim and needs all the talent they can get. Mulheron recently avenged his lone loss against Ruben Wolf beating him by unanimous decision defending his M4TC title back in February. Mulheron has been one of the most successful HW’s out of England and without a doubt is a no-brainer for a call up.
