MMALinker's Discovered Prospects List

MMALinker's Discovered Prospects List

Alright guys! I've been creating prospect threads for a while now -- since I believe November of last year, and now it seems Realidea and Jojo have found some great prospects as well, so this thread is going to link to each prospect discovered by our Linker's (organized by Linker member in alphabetical order and date discovered) as well as their records since being posted. Everyone is allowed in on the fun, so if you want in just get hunting for a prospect and let us know when you make the thread if we don't notice right away! Try and keep it legit - don't just make a thread for every guy you see, as we don't want our list to be filled with a bunch of cans :biggrin:

I'll keep this thread updated as much as possible and of course any help is appreciated for keeping track of the records.

DISCLAIMER:

Please keep all discussion about the fighters inside their respective threads. We do not want to highjack the original threads, this is simply to keep track of all of them so none get forgotten about over time.

I think Ryan Couture is gonna follow in his father's footsteps and be a mediocre fighter in the UFC.

I love the prospect list. With all the events and orgs left and right is more difficult to follow new fighters these days. Thanks.. Some of those mentioned are seasoned though.

This is a grand idea. Mikal jumped on that shit with the quickness. Cool thread. 8) Also I think that by adding the record to each individual's finds it will add a competitive aspect that will make people think hard before posting a prospect, and therefor filter out the noobs.

Randy Couture a mediocre fighter? :lol: His record is what is mediocre... look at his resume and accomplishments man...
Sure he had some gifted title shots towards the end there but hey, he managed to do some crazy shit before he retired :!:

His son will be the mediocre one. If that. I see him losing to anyone of importance in the UFC. Dismal may be a better word.

I figured by making it a competition it would keep Jojo interested in making new threads ;)


Also, for those who replied about guys they talked about. As a general rule of thumb, I don't consider just talking about the guy to count as scouting them out. Gotta make a thread or at least a pretty big post in another thread (and be able to link to it & prove you were first :twisted: )


Otherwise it doesn't count 8)

I think people are getting confused here. first No, talking about a guy thats in the UFC already doesn't count. he's not a prospect anymore. And second you cant just say this guy is good. Make a thread about him, with info on him. And don't just go to sherdog or any website and get the first name of a guy with a good record and post it here. That kinda of kills the purpose of this

and good thread. This way we can see who's the smartest :twisted:

Nailed it!

Real, should I add everyone you included in that thread you made or do you want to pick a few of them? I'm thinking about adding a cap on how many prospects you can have on your list just so someone can't have like 30 while other people have 5-10

ye ill pick a few. but where do we draw the line if he's considered a prospect or not? obviously if hes in the UFC or Top Fighter in Bellator it doesn't count. but if he's a champion of a top promotion i don't think he's a prospect either. Like Musa sure he isnt well know in the states but hes a top fighter imo already. And does age factor in? Ill pm some names

Hmm. Musa is a hard one because he doesn't have that many fights in his career but he's a decorated M-1 fighter. I'd say any major organization's champions or former champions (Bellator, WSoF, KSW, M-1, obviously UFC, etc) no longer count as prospects.

Update my list bro.

Also I think for these prospects they can't have ten or more pro fights. And can't have move than two loses. As well as not be a champ in their promotion.
