Bellator continues their trend of collecting top Brazilian talent. Over at ULTMMA, the site reports that Bellator has agreed to terms with Phelipe Lins (5-0). A 6'3 light heavyweight out of Nova Uniao Kimura, Lins was the #2 light heavyweight on Bloody Elbow's 2012 World MMA Scouting Report.

LHW Scouting Report: #1 - Wagner Prado

If there is one prospect on our list most likely to successfully make the leap, it has to be Sao Paulo Muay Thai stylist Wagner Prado (7-0). Representing Praetorian MMA and Team Nogueira, "Caldeirao" looks to have the requisite combination of size, speed, and skills for the task.

LHW Scouting Report: #2 - Phelipe Lins

At #2 on the 2012 World MMA Light Heavyweight Scouting Report, fleet-footed Brazilian "Monstro" Phelipe Lins (5-0) claims this year's runner-up spot, bringing an exciting brand of pugilism that's sure to get fans talking.

LHW Scouting Report: #3 - Tom DeBlass

Tom DeBlass (6-0) is no stranger to the sweaty mats that fill every mixed martial arts gym in America. But that isn't because he's been part of the booming population of athletes in their twenties making the transition to the sport. He's taken a slightly different approach.

LHW Scouting Report: #4 - Misha Cirkunov

Is Latvia the next region to explode with quality mixed martial arts talent? Probably not, but for thirteen years - it was home to one of MMA's most talked about light heavyweight prospects in Misha Cirkunov (5-1).

LHW Scouting Report: #5 - Kyle Cerminara

The long, arduous journey of becoming a world-class wrestler is likely one of the most grueling goals, both physically and mentally, that anyone could ever attempt to accomplish.

LHW Scouting Report: #6 - Robert Drysdale

2007 Abu Dhabi Combat Club champion Robert Drysdale (3-0) hasn't been in any rush to dive into the sport of mixed martial arts. At 29 years old, he's a late starter in the sport, but he isn't new to one of the most integral parts of MMA, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

LHW Scouting Report: #7 - Artur Alibulatov

Despite these tumultuous circumstances, young Dagestani fighters like Artur Alibulatov (8-0) have flourished. With a strong national martial arts institution to draw on, he and his peers are poised to conquer the Russian mixed martial arts scene and beyond.

LHW Scouting Report: #8 – Thiago Perpetuo

The first Brazilian to claim a spot on the 2012 World MMA Light Heavyweight Scouting Report is Sao Paulo, Brazil-native Thiago Perpetuo (8-1-1).

LHW Scouting Report: #10 – Juha Saarinen

Beginning our countdown on the 2012 World MMA Light Heavyweight Scouting Report, 28-year-old Finn Juha Saarinen (7-1) claims his spot, proving that Sweden and Norway aren't the only countries with top notch talent.
