10 Lightweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022


John Mitchell

 26 | 6’0″ | Cork, Ireland | 4-0 | 2 Finishes | 2 KO/TKOs | Combined Opponents’ Record: 10-5 | Best Win – Konstantinos Ntelis (6-1)

Out of Ireland, Mitchell is a bright prospect in this lightweight division. He’s the greenest among anyone on this list but has shown enough in his short career. His first two fights were for Cage Warriors and his last two have been for UAE Warriors. Mitchell did have a long amateur career going 11-2.

On the feet, Mitchell fights very well on the outside. He throws a good knee up the middle and has a strong straight jab. Even making guys pay when they plant their feet he’ll lunge in with lead hooks. Mitchell is an even better grappler. I have no complaint about his jiu-jitsu at all. He can open you up with constant ground and pound or take the back and secure the RNC. Really well-versed is the Irishman.
