10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021

Anton Turkalj

24 | 6’4″ | Göteborg, Sweden | 6-0 | 6 Finishes | 4 KO/TKOs, 2 Submissions (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 17-9 | Best Win – Ibo Aslan (9-0) 

Turkalj is someone that’s had my attention for a while. It was when he beat Ibo Aslan in his last fight was that I knew he was a serious prospect. Aslan was someone who I had on this list last year and Turkalj finished him. Turkalj is a raw talent fighting out of Sweden. He’s a big guy standing at 6’4″ and is super athletic.

On the feet, Turkalj fights long with a jab and kicks. He’s explosive throwing spinning kicks and flying knees as well. He puts together punches and knees well and can finish the fight at any moment. The Swede has an array of submissions dating back to his amateur career. He’s well-rounded and although he’s still raw he’s got the skillset to go far in this division.
