New, 3 comments

Zane Simon & T.P. Grant are back to talk about just what went down at UFC 196 and to look at all the prospects looking to make it big this week in MMA. Including Anderson Buzika, Abdul-Rahman Temirov, Abdul-Rahman Dzhanaev, Irene Aldana, Andrea Lee, Melquizael Costa da Conceicao, and more.

It's a non-UFC week, which means some heavy regional scouting on our end. We're talking the fallout from last week's UFC 196 and a run of top tier regional cards, including Titan FC, Ring of Combat, RFA, and of course Bellator 151. And then we're diving back into the sticks for a good look at the guys who are fighting on the small shows this week. Absolute Championship Berkut 31 put on a strong show on Wednesday Abdul-Rahman Dzhanaev, Abdul-Rahman Temirov, and Adlan Bataev.

There's also Invicta FC 6 (which we're giving it's own Vivisection this week), a surprisingly prospect heavy Imortal FC card (Rafael Nunes, Anderson Buzika), and a few other players kicking around on the regionals. So check it out while we scan around for the best young talent on the market.
