Scouting Prospects for the Contender Series Season 5: Part 3


Victor Martinez

Lightweight | 29 | Pharr, Texas, US | 12-4 | Win streak: 6 | 8 KO/TKOs

Victor Martinez was supposed to fight last Summer on the Contender Series against Tucker Lutz but had to withdraw. So it wouldn’t be surprising to see him back. Martinez has been in the sport for a long time and is someone that’s never got the respect he deserves. He’s on a nice six-fight win streak and is a Fury FC champion. He almost got that shot last time out so he should be looked at again.

Richard Palencia

Bantamweight | 31 | Phoenix, Arizona, US | 9-0 | Win streak: 10 | 3 Submissions

At 31-years-old, Palencia is in the prime of his career. He’s undefeated and trains out of the MMA Lab. He hasn’t had the best of competition but has fought inside the Combate and the LFA cage. Palencia is in fact 3-0 under the LFA banner. In the last few years, he hasn’t been too active but that’s the only thing you can hold against him.
