Flyweight Scouting Report: #1 - Dileno Lopes

We've finally made it. This is the end of the line for the 2012 World MMA Scouting Report, so without further adieu -- I present to you our #1 flyweight prospect -- Nova Uniao's Dileno Lopes (8-0).

Flyweight Scouting Report: #2 - Jose Maria Tome

In the flyweight division, the transformation hasn't begun in earnest just yet, but Ceara, Brazil's Jose Maria Tome (28-3) has the credentials to replicate Barao's ascent from diamond-in-the-rough beginnings to elite status.

Flyweight Scouting Report: #3 - Sergio Pettis

One of the trends we've noticed between this year's report and last year's report is the rise of siblings in the ranks of MMA's talent pool. The Lima brothers are the perfect example, but in a more broader sense -- siblings aren't that uncommon in the upper reaches of the sport. Why is that?

Flyweight Scouting Report: #4 - Rafael de Freitas

The latest edition of TUF featured two outstanding tournament victors in Diego Brandao and John Dodson, but inquiring minds want to know why Albequerque-based, Brazilian-born black belt Rafael de Freitas (5-0) was omitted from the bantamweight field

Flyweight Scouting Report: #5 - Alexandre Pantoja

After a brief trip back to the United States to conclude the latter half of our top ten flyweight countdown, we now journey back to Brazil to crack the top five. Surprisingly, we lead the second half of our climb to the summit with 21-year-old Alexandre Pantoja (10-2)...

Flyweight Scouting Report: #6 - Hector Sandoval

At flyweight, Team Alpha Male isn't without reserves. Ukiah, California's Hector Sandoval (4-1) is one of their most promising representatives, recording four wins in the last two years in the California mixed martial arts scene.

Flyweight Scouting Report: #7 - Jesse Riggleman

At #7 on the 2012 World MMA Flyweight Scouting Report, Virginia's Jesse Riggleman (11-2) finds his deserved spot on this year's countdown. After back-to-back losses in 2010 to The Ultimate Fighter contestants John Dodson and Louis Gaudinot...

Flyweight Scouting Report: #8 - Sean Santella

When New Jersey-native Sean Santella (9-3-1) looks back on his life decades from now, there won't be any notion that it was a walk in the park. For the most part, nobody really believes it is.

Flyweight Scouting Report: #9 - Claudir Dutkevis

Tata Fight Team member Claudir Dutkevis (10-0) is the perfect reason for our early journey to South America. The 28-year-old has recorded ten victories since his debut in 2006, and he's remained unbeaten in his six-year career

Flyweight Scouting Report: #10 - Kevin Belingon

Relegated to the honorable mention spot on this year's bantamweight report, Filipino striker Kevin Belingon (9-0) has finally convinced us that he's worthy of a spot on our countdown... at flyweight.
