The MMA Prospectus: UFC Dublin, Bellator 144, and more bantamweights

New, comment

Zane Simon & T.P. Grant are back with the MMA prospectus to look at all the young talent on UFC Dublin, including Steven Ray, Scott Askham, Tom Breese, and Darren Till. We'll also look at BW prospects Toni Tauru and Isaiah Chapman and give a brief overview of what we've missed over the past couple weeks.

With events from MMA's two largest promotions this week, there's a lot to talk about in terms of developing talent. UFC Fight Night: Holohan vs. Smolka may have lost its headliner and its co-main event, but the card is ripe with young fighters looking to prove a point. Whether it's Steven Ray and his possible claim to being the most talented fighter out of Scotland, or Darren Till's quest to become a breakout talent in the welterweight division. Or even just Tom Breese's hope of getting by the monolith that is Cathal Pendred, there are a lot of small stories to talk about. On the Bellator side, Michael Page is returning, Isao Kobayashi is making his debut, and Brandon Halsey is looking to get his belt back.
