Regional MMA has been at a near stand still for the past couple months. Some of the big hitters have still been out putting on shows, but what was (over the first few months of the year) somewhere between 60-75 events a week has been trending more toward 30-45 in June and July. But that doesn't mean there aren't some top prospects to talk about, just a few less than normal. This week, we're looking at Teruto Ishihara, Yair Rodriguez, and Joe Gigiliotti all fighting on UFC Salt Lake. We're also looking at a great run of top shelf unknowns who could make a big impact. Most notably, Leonardo Silva and Casey Kenney, alongside Prospectus favorite Ricardo Lucas Ramos.
