I have only seen two of Michel Page's fights but this guy really looks good. With a few more impressive wins I see this guy fighting in the octagon real soon. He looks like Anderson reincarnated he's 5-0 now all first round finishes. Just wondering if there are any other fighters out there that some of you are really looking forward to seeing move up to the big show?

2013 was a great year for prospects. Hopefully 2014 is just as good. But here's some guys I've been keeping an eye on. (Didn't include guys like Lima and Pendred who have big opportunities coming up.)

- Josh Hill (9-0)

- Sean Strickland (13-0)

- Jumabieke Tuerxun (14-0)

Tyrone Spong (2-0) Light Heavyweight Currently with WSOF
Henry Cejudo (5-0) Flyweight Currently with Legacy
Chidi Njokuani (10-4) WelterWeight Brother of UFC fighter Anthony
Joe Ellenberger (14-1) Lightweight
Ian Williams (8-1) Welterweight Our very own training partner of Tyson Cunningham.
Mamed Khalidov (27-4-2) Middleweight He's not really a prospect but he's probably the best Middleweight outside of the UFC.

Stephanie Eggink-(4-1)Strawweight Champion at XFC. I also think she might get on TUF 20.
Jinh Yu Frey-(2-0) Atomweight Champion at SCS. Also contender for Women's KOTY against Darla Harris.

another fighter to look for is a teammate of mine names Justin "ruckus" Harrington. justin is 6-0 and just won the cage sport LW title. He's got some big opportunities coming his way so look for Justin on the TV

Justin "Ruckus" Harrington

Ian "The Mule" Williams is on his way to the big show too. He's coming off a big win over Damarqous Johnson. he's currently 8-1


Ian "The Mule" Williams.

And the last guy to watch out for is Josh "Killa" Calvo. He's been tearing it up in Guam at the PXC events. He'll be fighting for the title in early 2014. He's a legit BJJ black belt.

Josh "Killa" Calvo

I'm pretty bias towards my teammates but in all honesty these guys are legit.

This

As well as:

Mirsad Bektic (7-0) - Kpro is right. This kid is a beast and he's probably UFC ready, coming off the win over Pearson. I'll be surprised if he isn't in the UFC by the middle of next year.

Pedro Munhoz (9-0) - If he wins his next fight in January there is no way he doesn't get signed to the UFC. He's coming off a decision win over Jeff Curran (should have been a UD) and he's an exciting fighter to watch. They need Bantamweights and he's a solid one.

Carlos Diego Ferreira (9-0) - He's coming off a 5 round war with Jorge Patino where he won the Legacy Lightweight title. He's a solid BJJ guy that is probably ready for the UFC. He's another guy I wouldn't be surprised to see in the UFC soon.

Anthony Birchak (11-1) - He just won the MFC Bantamweight title and he has a fairly recent win over Ryan Benoit, who made his UFC debut last month.

Graham Spencer (11-1) - He's the MFC Lightweight champion. He also has a win over UFC vet, Shane Nelson. He's a very good wrestler who's developing a solid submission game.

Scott Holtzman (6-0) - XFC has been grooming this guy to be a UFC fighter since his pro debut. He owns their Lightweight title but he still needs a signature win to really get himself noticed by the UFC.

Luke Sanders (6-0) - He's another solid XFC fighter. He recently took out fellow prospect, Zach Underwood in the 2nd round and has quietly put together a decent 6-0 record. He's ready to make a push for the UFC and a quality win or two might get him there sooner rather than later.

Larissa Moreira Pacheco (9-0) Women's Bantamweight. She just won again today at Jungle Fights 63. Ko over then undefeated Irene Aldana to win the Title.

Giovanni da Silva Santos Jr. (13-1) He's a Flyweight that is currently fighting out of Jungle Fights and he's challenging for the Title next week. After losing his professional debut he's won 13 in a row. Could end up seeing him in the UFC since the UFC is always recruiting and especially at 125lbs. But first he's gotta get past JF Flyweight champ Rayner Silva.

He got inured and won't be fighting this weekend.
