Scouting Prospects for the Contender Series Season 5: Part 2

Eduardo Matias Torres

Bantamweight | 25 | Santiago, Chile | 11-0 | Win streak: 11 | 3 KO/TKOs, 3 Submissions

In all likelihood the best prospect out of Chile, Torres holds an impressive undefeated record. The competition Torres has beaten hasn’t been great but he’s disposed of his opponents the way he should. Just like Ignacio Bahamondes from last season on the Contender Series Torres is an unproven young talent with a lot of potential. It would be fun to see Chile represented on the show this year.

Christian Quiñónez

Bantamweight | 24 | Zacatecas, Mexico | 15-3 | Win streak: 3 | 8 KO/TKOs, 3 Submissions’

The UFC lately has signed a slew of former Combate fighters, many of which would have been a good fit on Dana White’s Contenders Series first. Although Quinonez only went 1-1 in Combate he is on a three-fight win streak. He has some solid wins including one against Vinicius de Oliveira who is a top Brazilian prospect. In fact, the combined record of the opponents he’s beat is 98-36. He’s paid his dues to get a shot.
