Brett Martin

Heavyweight | 26 | Hesperia, Michigan, US | 9-1 | Win Streak: 5 | 2 KO/TKOs, 2 Submissions

It’s odd that Martin isn’t already signed to the UFC, and has yet to be on Dana White’s Contender Series. Being a heavyweight and only 26, and also considering his solid record, it’s downright puzzling. Martin carries a lot more weight than most fighters but that doesn’t stop him from being a solid prospect. His last two wins, which came against Daniel James and Renan Ferreira, were won via DQ but nonetheless, those go down as wins and that’s two really good wins. Along with those names, he’s also beat current UFC fighter Josh Parisian. Based on his level of competition alone he deserves a shot on the Contender Series. Young successful heavyweights don’t just come along every day.

Brant Moore

Lightweight | 27 | Marshall, Texas, US | 9-1 | Win Streak: 7 | 5 Submissions

Moore first jumped out to me when he beat a good prospect in Nation Gibrick in 2019. He’s become a staple of LFA, fighting for them in his last three fights. In his last fight, he appeared in the main event of LFA 89 and dominated TUF 27 finalist Joe Giannetti. His sole loss was to a good prospect in Lucas Clay. Moore most likely will take his next fight on the Contender Series.
