10 Featherweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021

Salahdine Parnasse

23 | 5’8″ | Aubervilliers, France | 14-0-1 | 6 Finishes | 2 KO/TKOs, 4 Submissions (RNC, D’Arce Choke, Arm-Triangle) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 141-66 | Best Win – Ivan Buchinger (37-6)

Parnasse didn’t really become noticeable until he signed with one of the biggest European organizations in KSW in late 2017. Still with the promotion today, Parnasse quickly jumped into the pool with tough competition. Before signing with KSW, the best record Salahdine beat was 14-8. Now in his five KSW bouts, he’s fought a combined record of 85-25. He has also become KSW’s featherweight champion.

Parnasse would prefer to keep the fight on the feet where he can use his effective movement and a good kickboxing base. On the feet, he does a good job at moving in and out and really loves to attack with leg kicks, which really set up his strikes better. One of his best attributes is his cardio, as he can fight at the same pace for three to five rounds.
