Scouting Report Review - Heavyweights

If there is one fighter whose profile among mixed martial arts fans benefited the most due to his inclusion in the 2011 World MMA Scouting Report, it was M-1 Challenge Heavyweight Champion Guram Gugenishvili.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #1 - Magomed Malikov

Claiming the top spot on the 2012 World MMA Heavyweight Scouting Report is none other than Russia's Magomed Malikov (6-1). The Dagestani fighter has recorded an impressive 4-1 record in five appearances in 2011

HW Scouting Report: #2 - Magomed Abdurahimov

On December 24th in the Dagestani city of Makhachkala, a small, prestigious one-night mixed martial arts tournament took place at the Ali Aliev Sports Complex. No, this isn’t the cheap version of Warrior.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #3 - Alexei Kudin

Junior dos Santos' dominating rise to the top of the UFC's heavyweight division has caused many fans to re-think what weapons elite heavyweights need in order to compete at the highest level.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #4 - Levan Razmadze

None of the fighters saw MMA action before Sengoku's demise, but in 2011 another member of the Georgian Olympic Judo team, Levan Razmadze (4-0) emerged as a result of the experiment and can currently be seen wreaking havoc on any Japanese heavyweights unlucky enough to cross his path.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #5 - Chris Birchler

Birchler was a two-time NCAA Division I national qualifier during his wrestling career at both East Stroudsburg University and Edinboro University.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #6 - Ruslan Magomedov

One shared experience for many of the fighters on the scouting report is a common career path that includes competing in established, well-organized regional promotions such as Atlantic City's Ring of Combat and Jungle Fight in Brazil.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #7 - Adam Parkes

Surprisingly, the United Kingdom has been absent so far on the 2012 World MMA Scouting Report. Considering the fact that it was one of the UFC's first international destinations, it's difficult to believe the region isn't producing quality talent in numbers by now.

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #8-Richardson Moreira

If you think about it, Brazil hasn't produced heavyweight talent in massive quantities over the years. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Junior dos Santos, Fabricio Werdum, and possibly Antonio Silva are the names most fans would know

Heavyweight Scouting Report: #9 - Jan Jorgensen

Jan Jorgensen (1-0) is no stranger to the sound of two burly heavyweight athletes clashing in the midst of a heated battle for real estate.
