New, 5 comments

Zane Simon & T.P. Grant look at this week's top MMA prospects around the world, focusing especially on the WMMA side with Rose Namajunas, Alexa Grasso, and an Invicta FC 18 card. We're also looking at WSOF 32's Phil Hawes, Hakeem Dawodu, and Lance Palmer.

We're back with another episode of Bloody Elbow's scouting show, the MMA Prospectus. And this week we're looking at a number of top flight prospects spread out over a number of promotions. In the UFC we've got Rose Namajunas (and Justin Scoggins who isn't fighting). Over in Invicta Alexa Grasso, Jodie Esquibel, and Aspen Ladd are all looking to put on a show (among a host of other up and coming talents). And in the World Series of Fighting, Phil Hawes, Hakeem Dawodu, Marat Magomedov, and Lance Palmer all seem headed for big things. Throw in a Jungle Fight Card and a Shooto Brazil card and you've got a lot of potential top talent on offer.
