We're alive... Really and truly. After a couple of off weeks to deal with family stuff the MMA Prospctus has returned. Since we've missed a bit, this week we're looking back over the last four UFC events for the highlight prospect performances. Fighters like Doo Ho Choi, Gilbert Burns, and Lando Vannata all got a chance to really shine under the spotlight. We're also talking about some of the not as flashy fights, Will Brooks debut UFC win and Sage Northcutt's continuing career being notable among them.

Then we're bridging over to this week's fights and most notably the blue chip trio of Francis Ngannou, Kamaru Usman, and Darrion Caldwell. Ngannou and Usman are fighting on the UFC on Fox 20 card, Caldwell is over headlining Bellator 159 and all three men should be looking to put on highlight performances.
