10 Lightweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021


Mehdi “Iron” Ben Lakhdhar

 30 | 5’11″ | Paris, France | 5-0-1 | 3 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs | Combined Opponents’ Record: 15-6 | Best Win – Stevie McIntosh (6-1)

Mehdi Ben Lakhdhar may only have six professional bouts but he has four fights in Cage Warriors, and all four were memorable performances. It would be nice to get another fighter from France in the UFC and being with Cage Warriors he’s very close to that goal. He is 30-years-old so the push to the top has to be now.

Lakhdhar is a Muay Thai fighter with all-around skills on the feet. He’s good at picking his shots, flipping the jab, and firing uppercuts with just a nice flow to his output. His takedown defense does need some improvement but has already shown some, developing rather quickly.
