10 Bantamweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022


Christian “CeeRod” Rodriguez

24 | 5’7″ | Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US | 7-0 | 5 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs, 2 Submissions’ (Armbar, RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 19-13 | Best Win – Junior Cortez (5-1)

Rodriguez fought last season on the Contender Series and had an impressive showing and got the win. Unfortunately, due to missing weight he didn’t get the contract. It was also the same week Jake Hadley missed weight and still got a contract. Rodriguez is a bright young star training out of Roufusport that has a high ceiling.

Rodriguez is an accomplished high school wrestler that has adapted to a well-rounded fighter. On the feet, Rodriguez is all volume that favors the one-two, has constant forward pressure, throws combinations frequently, and strikes to wrestle very well. Rodriguez is a strong grappler and has endless cardio to fight his fight all day.
