100 Fighters Who Could Soon Be in the Big Show

Here are 100 guys to keep any eye on.  It is likely that many of these guys will find their way to one of the sport’s larger promotions before too long.  These guys have paid their dues in the local circuits and smaller shows and they are probably being closely scouted by the premiere talent watchers.  Remember these names because some can not only make it to the big show, but also compete.   By big show we mean UFC, Strikeforce, WEC, DREAM, Sengoku and Bellator.  Current fighters from those promotions are not listed nor are big name free agents who have competed under those banners in the past.  This is a prospect watch list.
