10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022

Murtaza Talha Ali

24 | 6’0″ | Al-Muharraq, Bahrain | 4-0 | 100% finish rate | 3 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 14-5 | Best Win – Cameron Meintjies (6-1) 

Young as a pro, Ali is one of the highest-level light heavyweight amateurs in a long time. Ali is a two-time IMMAF world champion which is the biggest accomplishment out there as an amateur. Now, Ali is 4-0 as a pro and has looked outstanding fighting mainly for Brave CF.

Ali is a good striker and is an excellent wrestler. He’s had no issue closing the distance and powering guys to the mat. Ali has solid ground and pound and can grab the neck at any time. Ali has the blueprint to be the next big thing at light heavyweight and I think he will real soon.
