Luke Trainer 

Pro record: 3-0
Amateur record: 7-1
Weight class: Light-heavyweight
Age: 23
Fighting out of Stevenage, England

Luke Trainer might be only 3-0 but he earned his way to the Bellator cage as he will debut later this year. John Kavanagh hosted an eight-man one-night tournament for the winner to get an exclusive deal with Bellator MMA. Trainer won the tournament and looked good doing it. The physical specimen standing at 6’6″ has all the tools to make an impact in the 205-pound division.

Oumar Kane 
Pro record: 1-0
Amateur record: 0-0
Weight class: Heavyweight
Age: 27
Fighting out of Dakar/Senegal

Oumar Kane made his MMA debut last December and looked darn good. Kane is an undefeated Senegalese Wrestling Champion and he displayed that in that fight. With obvious work to do when it comes to areas outside of wrestling, with the right push, he could develop into a good prospect.

Max Rohskopf
Pro record: 4-0
Amateur record: 1-0
Weight class: Lightweight
Age: 25
Fighting out of Las Vegas, Nevada, US

Max Rohskopf grew up wrestling and would become quite good at it winning the 2016 ACC Championship at NC State. There isn’t much MMA footage on him, but he has shown some good power in his hands and obviously good wrestling. In his latest fight he took out DWCS veteran Zach Zane so he’s already proven he can fight at the next level up.

“I’m the best there is the best there was and the best there ever will be.” -Max Rohskopf

Kyran Cameron
Pro record: 3-0
Amateur record: 4-2
Weight class: Welterweight
Age: 27
Fighting out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Among all the names on the list, Kyran Cameron is probably the least known. He trains with Para Bellum MMA with other top young Canadian prospects. He has fought for BTC, a good promotion out of Canada that will continue to build him. He’s a good athlete who has dabbled in many forms of martial arts.

Khasan Magomedsharipov
Pro record: 2-0
Amateur record: 0-1
Weight class: Featherweight
Age: 18
Fighting out of Saratov, Russia

Khasan Magomedsharipov is the younger brother of UFC featherweight contender Zabit Magomedsharipov. Khasan is only 2-0, although he has done some kickboxing as well. Not quite at the same level as Zabit but he has similarities to his older brother which is a great aspect. He has looked really good in his two fights so far.
