10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021


Nasrudin Nasrudinov

29 | 6’0″ | Moscow, Russia | 9-0 | 5 Finishes | 4 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (Armbar) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 51-16 | Best Win – Cory Hendricks (6-2) 

Nasrudinov is arguably the best kept secret from in ACA right now. The Russian has beat opponents like Cory Hendricks and Jorge Gonzalez but you never hear his name as a top 205-pound prospect. He’s not a big 205’er and I think a cut to middleweight is in his future.

Nasrudidov is a good pocket striker. He has a sneaky good uppercut he uses and is really good at hitting the chin coming over the shoulder. Not a huge power puncher but he picks his shots and is super clean. He’s more of a grinder against the cage and a very strong wrestler in the same sense. The grappling along with scrambles is high-level from Narudinov. Not sure about his contract situation but it seems like if the UFC wants him they can maybe get him.
