IFL guys that didn't come to the UFC but should have (not previously mentioned):
Chris Horodecki 13-1 (6 KOs 6 Decs)
Tim Kennedy 10-2 (losses to Mayhem Miller and Scott Smith)
Antonio McKee 22-3-2
John Gunderson 21-6
Delson Heleno 15-5
Chad Griggs 7-1
Deividas Taurosevicius 10-3

Not an IFL guy: Kyle Jensen 39-10-2 (since 2002) dudes problem is that when he fights "known" fighters is when he losses, but hopefully his luck has changed as he just TKOed Rich Clementi (injury broken clavicle)



That wasn't an impressive win. It was on the same card I saw Phil Davis fight on. Kyle went for a takedown and it broke Rich's clavicle within 20 seconds of the fight. It didn't prove anything and everyone was really pissed off and left before they announced the winner.

Jared Hamann I know how "Unknown" he would be considered. But I still think he is on the bubble of great talent that isnt well known.

after randomly searching sherdog for fighters that I never heard of with real good records, I found myself noticing that alot of the guys I came across that seem to be off to promising MMA careers, current fight in the Bellator Championships

most noteworthy was their 170 lbs champ-Lyman Good -only 10-0 but his last 3 he finished and has 5 ko/tko out of the 10 wins and he definitely looks the part of a successful fighter

again Bellator, has alot of talent

Daniel "The Epidemic" Farmer

Tough kid from Southern Indiana. Huge MW, 6 foot 5 inches. Very well rounded, extremely entertaining. Has a ton of potential, not to much seasoning though. One day he could be great though, keep an eye out for him.

Seeing as he won the Dream WW GP i geuss he isn't unknown but less known. Marius Zaromskis is a bad ass. The way he ran through the GP was amazing. Hope to see this kid in the near future in the UFC



That's who I came in to say.

some great names are one here and i think a lot of them have bright futures. ill add joe warren to the list although most of us know him at this point due to his win over kid yamamoto. this guy has a fantastic wrestling pedigree and is an incredibly hard worker(like most wrestlers) so i see no reason why he cant make it in the bigs, although until the wec/ufc merger happens he wont be able to be in the ufc due to the weight class hes in.

Fights out of Spokane, WA; seen him fight a couple times and seems pretty well rounded. Also, apparently used to be into drugs pretty heavy but has since cleaned himself up.

Seeing as how the 1st page of this thread was loading for 10 minutes and never completed, I don't know if he's already been mentioned. If so, I apologize...

He's relatively unknown to anyone outside of hardcore fans.
