The new year has commenced, and a new crop of fresh talent appears on the verge of breaking out. Here are nine names CBSSports.com believes will become the biggest breakout stars in the upcoming year.

yeah props to that list for sure, King Mo is def' making an impression, Pat Berry I think will be a beast in the HW division, Kiril "baby fedor" is going to get more known when he wins by KO this weekend.
Ishii coming to the UFC, Dan Miller is already off to an excellent start as well

Agree on Lashley,Lawal,Miller,LC Davis, im not sold on barry yet because of his height in HW. But I hope he proves me wrong.

My pick to break out in '09 is Davis' opponent this weekend, Bao Quach. I have a feeling that he's going to beat Davis and then make some noise in DREAM's FW GP later this year.

Not until he fights/beats somebody with some sort of a record.....

Hopefully that will be soon though.

IMO he has better credentials than Bobby 1 fight Lashley
