The MMA Prospectus: UFC 193, Bamma 23, and Sao Paulo fallout

Zane Simon & T.P. Grant are back with more insights and analysis into the world of developing stars in MMA. We'll be looking at all the young fighters at UFC 193, most importantly those fighting for and defending their belts, as well as a scattering of good young fighters on other cards around the world.

A new week a new batch of young fighters to put under the microscope. This time around we're looking at all the developing talent on UFC 193 including those fresh unknown faces, Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm, and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. It's also time for Robert Whittaker to take the jump from potential to contender and Jared Rosholt's second crack at becoming a top 15 talent. Jake Matthews looks primed for a showcase fight down under and James Moontasri has an opportunity to show that he's really putting things together.

We're also looking at Legacy FC headliner and longtime BJJ ace Leonardo Leite as he continues his late blooming MMA career. And there's BAMMA's Night of Champions where five belts will go up for grabs in a series of three round fights. Rany Saadeh vs. Shajidul Haque is the premiere prospect battle as the two men fight for the BAMMA flyweight title. Saadeh has the look of a real prospect at 125, but Haque is a challenging action fighter with a well rounded game.
