10 Featherweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021


Jonas “Shiva” Bilharinho

30 | 5’11″ | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | 8-1-1 | 7 Finishes | 6 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 49-12-1 | Best Win – Mario Israel (9-0)

In 2016, Jonas Bilharinho was one of the best prospects out of Brazil, but suffered a disappointing loss to Valdines Silva. Following that loss, Bilharinho took a layoff of a little over two years. He came back in October of 2019 and scored a highlight-reel flying knee knockout. Jonas was supposed to fight last year in LFA but the pandemic held that back. If that was to happen he could’ve been fast-tracked to the UFC. He’s such a good fighter that I think can go right into the UFC and make noise.

Bilharinho is an absolute sniper with an incredible sixth-sense like ability to finish the fight. He’s a master of the range being able to control the distance. Bilharinho throws laser straight punches and a very quick left kick to the body. He just throws a lot of snapping kicks and long punches to commit on bigger strikes. Bilharinho is very technical and still explosive when he wants to be.
