10 Lightweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022


Ismael “Marreta” Bonfim

 26 | 5’8″ | Brasilia, Federal District, Brazil | 16-3 | 12 Finishes | 8 KO/TKOs, 4 Submission’s (Anaconda, Kimura, Triangle, Arm-triangle) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 101-52-2 | Best Win – Rangel de Sá (10-1)

Bonfim is a really good talent out of Brazil with a lot of upsides. Along with a good amount of MMA experience, he has competed in boxing as well. As an amateur boxer, his record was 24-3 and as a pro it’s 4-1. In MMA he was a regional champ and in his last fight, he made his LFA debut.

All his boxing experience has played dividends for Bonfim in MMA. His hands are super sharp and not only is his string good he has a ground game in his back pocket. His boxing skills show he’s a good counter striker, with frequent combinations, a good jab, and excellent bodywork.
