Scouting Prospects for the Contender Series Season 5: Part 2

Juancamilo Ronderos

Flyweight | 26 | Las Vegas, Nevada, US but born in Bogota, Colombia | 4-0 | Win streak: 13 | 2 Submissions

Ronderos, before turning pro, was 9-0 as an amateur. He was a four-time Tuff-N-Uff champion which is a prestigious title to earn as an amateur. Now as a pro he sits at 4-0 and is the defending WXC flyweight champion. Ronderos in his most recent fight beat former UFC fight and TUF veteran Eric Shelton. To beat a guy like Eric Shelton with only three fights at the time is very impressive. Ronderos is a lock for the Contender Series this year — you heard it here first.

Tommy Aaron

Lightweight | 26 | Tampa, Florida, US | 7-4 | Win streak: 1 | 2 KO/TKOs, 2 Submissions

Aaron is one of the most underrated guys out there. 7-4 isn’t the best record but he’s always performed very well. He’s already fought for the likes of RFA, LFA, and twice for Bellator. In his last fight he had the performance of his life against Gerald Scott who is a top prospect. That win and performance alone should get Aaron on Dana White’s Contender Series this year. He’s capable of stopping some top fighters and will only lose to good opponents.
