10 Featherweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022


Edwin Cooper Jr.

28 | 6’0″ | Albuquerque, New Mexico, US | 5-1 | 3 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs | Combined Opponents’ Record: 6-3-1 | Best Win – Robson Junior (3-0)

Cooper is a three-time Illinois high school state champ, an NJCAA National Champ, a D2 finalist, and he was a national qualifier at the University of Iowa. His sole loss came by a submission where the ref made a mistake saying Cooper tapped. He’s a product out of Jackson-Wink MMA and a staple out of LFA.

Cooper is a top-level wrestler. To wrestle is his intention in every fight as it should be. He’s very aggressive, strong, and crafty. Cooper has a deep gas tank being able to impose his will on you constantly. He’s got lock-down top control and some good ground and pound when the opening is there. Cooper is destined for the UFC this year.
