10 Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020

Martin Buday

28 | 6’5″ | Trnava, Slovakia | 7-1 | 6 Finishes | 5 KO/TKO’s, 2 Submissions (Kimura) | Combined opponents record- 31-32 |  Best win- José Rodrigo Guelke (21-17)

Martin Buday is a prospect that’s stood out in the last two years. He is the current arguably the best prospect out of the Europe Eastern. Besides being 7-1 as a pro he went 3-0 as an amateur. Outside of MMA, Buday is a 2x IBJJF European NoGi champion and an ISFA European grappling champion. His sole loss is to The Ultimate Fighter Season 28 winner Juan Espino.

Buday doesn’t have any special qualities, but his forward pressure and ability to cut off angles has served him well. He doesn’t hit hard but has good timing when he throws. He’s not fast but uses effective footwork. While he’s not the most explosive heavyweight, he is still on a six-fight win streak with all six being finishes.
