If I'm not mistaken King Mo is only 3-0 right now. I'd say that still qualifies him as a prospect.

Well one of our prospects "Brett Cooper" just racked up another impressive victory at Affliction, so I will update his record and post his most recent fight shortly...

One of the top camps in Brazil right now Nova Uniao has a ton of hot prospects especially at the lighter weight divisions, so expect to see a lot more coming to the WEC, here's a few guys who you'll probably hear about in the next couple years...

Leonardo Santos
Record: 6-2

Another ADCC vet (who had an awesome flying armbar over GSP), started off his career losing a decision to Takanori Gomi but in late 07' got a huge win over former Black House member Rafael "Manteiga" Bastos, and has been winning ever since...

Leonardo Santos vs. Georges "Rush" St. Pierre ADCC 2005
Leonardo Santos vs Alan Lopes

Eduardo "Dudu" Dantas
Record: 6-1

He is listed as being from Brazil, but I am pretty sure he is actually from Argentina. Only 19 years old and a high level BJJ BB, his only loss came via DQ. He has a great build for a 135lbs, and I expect we'll see him in the WEC very soon.

Jeff Lawson
Record: 13-2

An early favorite to win this seasons TUF as a lightweight. His only losses have been one due to a cut, and another loss to another early favorite to win TUF 9 Andre Winner. He does a ton of crazy acrobatic moves, and also practices capoeira. He's one of my favorite UK fighters and by then end of TUF 9, will be a favorite of many others.

11-0 Amateur Record – Defeated Alex Owen and Paul Jenkins
On British Sport Jiu Jitsu Team
Former National Judo Squad Member as a judo 3rd Dan.
Has international medals with the IJJF, ISJA, and WCJJO.
Was added to UFC 95 vs Shannon Gugerty but the fight was removed from UFC.COM, as was his profile.

Jeff Lawson
Record: 13-2

i would really like to seem him pull off a capoeira move or two on the show...maybe get some more unorthodox striking in the UFC like Jon Jones.

Haven't updated this for a bit so I thought I would pick out a couple more upcoming prospects that are on the verge of making it into the big shows. Specifically there are a few more big prospects at Team Noguiera. So we're going to see a lot more than just Junior Dos Santos coming out of this camp.

Andre is one of the most skilled submission stylists at 185lbs, and while you would expect him to be a BJJ practitioner, he is actually a Luta Livre fighter. He needs to work on his hands (but they are improving) and takedowns, but his submissions are dangerous, and he is well known for his trademark move--the anaconda choke--which he has achieved six victories with.

Andre "Chatuba" Santos
Record: 14-1

Andre Santos Highlights

Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante
Record: 7 - 1

Very well rounded, and has yet to be challenged. He absolutely steamrolled through the competition at Pro Elite, and should he move over to Strikeforce I don't see anyone who can challenge him except for the champ Ranto Sobral. His only loss was due to a DQ. The one negative is he needs to get in better shape, but certainly has all the tools to be a top LHW.

Evan Dunham (7-0)

Make that 8-0
2/25/09 6:10:35PM
Looks like another one of our prospects is getting a shot...Ricardo Lamas will be stepping in to face Bart Palaszewski...unfortunately it seems like someone has suddenly removed all of the film on youtube of him.
