10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020

Jamal “The Stormtrooper” Pogues

24 | 6’2″ | Victorville, California | 7-2 | 5 Finishes | 4 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission | Combined Opponents’ Record: 21-3 | Best Win – Kyle Noblitt (9-0) 

Young in both age and experience, Jamal Pogues is still an established fighter. His only two losses are to Jordan Young and Taylor Johnson who are both good prospects. Last Summer, he fought on the Contender Series and beat Marcos Brigagão but didn’t earn the contract. He has a scheduled fight against Alex Polizzi coming up for LFA and the winner may get fast-tracked to the UFC.

Pogues is a good wrestler whose grappling would be his weapon of choice. He would be described as a grinder being able to wrestle/grapple the entire duration of the fight. Pogues though isn’t a hold and stall type fighter as he’s always transitioning looking for the finish. On the feet, he’s improving with good right and left hooks as well as heavy leg kicks.
