Jeremiah Labiano

He's fighting tomorrow night for Tachi Palace Fights in the Co-Main Event for the Bantamweight Title. His opponent is Joe Soto who many of us already know from his fights at Bellator a few years ago. It'll be interesting to see where Labiano goes if he's able to pull this victory off. He's probably gonna be considered an underdog to Soto but I think an upset is very possible. Labiano has a slick ground game. He's a BJJ instructor for Bara Brothers.

Jeremiah Labiano came up short tonight. But it was fun to watch.

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.



Irene Aldana just signed with Invicta. That makes me believe that Pacheco will be in the UFC sooner rather than later.

After last night's event, I'll add Tuhugov and Tumenov to my list of fighters I'm watching as up-and-comers.

I'm also eager to see more of Aljamain Sterling (who is making his UFC debut at UFC 170).

It took me a while to find this thread. I felt this one could use a bump. Interesting to see so many of these up and comers now in the UFC.

I'm gonna add Marat Gafurov (9-0) to this list.

He will be headlining the One FC 21 card against Rob Lisita.

Another guy to check out tonight is Alexandre Pantoja.

He's headlining the RFA event for the vacant Flyweight Belt. He's 14-2 overall with a 7 fight win streak. He fights out of Nova Uniao and his last defeat was against Jussier Formiga. I'd like to think with a win over the tough Matt Manzanares he'll head right on over to the UFC.

He's part of our L2 combo as well and the fight is on AXS TV.

fuck good call, wish I saw this before I made my pick.
Was a great fight, and he did look solid. Very nice sub!

Konstantin Erokhin 7-1

He's a Russian HW Ko artist. Currently riding a 7 fight winning streak since losing his debut. Of his 7 wins 6 have been KO's in the 1st round with only 1 fight going toa Decision.

If he wins, I think he'll have a very,very solid chance at getting signed by the UFC. He's Russian and the UFC has been all over signing Russian fighters and he's fighting Richard Odoms who was signed by the UFC but was cut before his debut. The UFC needs HWs and he looks like a solid one thud far.

He's also part of our L2 combo this week.
