10 Lightweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020

Jai Herbert

 31 | 6’1″ | Wolverhampton, England | 10-1 | 9 Finishes | 8 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 59-17 | Best Win – Cain Carrizosa (11-3)

Jai Herbert is one of the best prospects out of the UK at the moment. He’s a former BAMMA title challenger and the current Cage Warriors lightweight champion. He’s beat former UFC fighter Cain Carrizosa and solid UK fighters like Jack Grant and Joe McColgan. His only loss is to Rhys McKee who appears on our welterweight list.

Herbert has decent wrestling and good jiu-jitsu to fall back on but he is much more talented on the feet. He does a great job fighting long with an excellent tool set of kicks, punches, knees, and elbows. Herbert is dangerous in all aspects on the feet but his right hand is his money shot.
