Featherweight Mark Dickman (9-1) expects he’ll take a big step in his career if he’s able to beat UFC vet Justin Lawrence (5-2) on Friday at RFA 17. Perhaps, he wonders, he’ll receive a contract offer from the industry-leader UFC.

“I feel I’ve been ready, and a win over a top-10 prospect like (Raoni) Barcelos, and then a win over a UFC vet is definitely going to put me in line or put me on (UFC matchmaker) Sean Shelby’s radar for an upgrade,” he told MMAjunkie Radio.

I think he's right. I think most of us picked him to lose his last fight and for the most part he's the consensus underdog here again tonight.

A win over Justin Lawrence would definitely have Dickman under the radar. In fact the UFC is basically using RFA as one of their primary sources of getting their next talent. Notice it seems like every event there is a Vacant Title Fight.

Also not too long ago Lawrence was suppose to beat Max Holloway in the UFC.
