We're back for another round of the MMA Prospectus the sportiest (maybe) MMA talking head show in MMA talking head shows. All we're interested in is new, fresh UFC talent, and potential future UFC fighters out on the regional scene. Oh and some Bellator guys too, but when it comes to talent acquisition, the UFC is far and away the industry leader. This week, with UFC 197 upon us, we've got a two big names in the prospect world to talk about: Henry Cejudo and Yair Rodriguez. Both men are storming their way up their respective divisions, with Cejudo already having earned his shot at the flyweight title. Of course we're also talking about a few other young stars on this week's UFC card and a few performances from last week too. And as always we'll be giving a quick shoutout to the top non-UFC prospects fighting this week as well.
