10 Bantamweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022


Francesco “Berserker” Nuzzi

25 | 5’6″ | Altamura, Italy | 9-1 | 6 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs, 3 Submissions’ (2 Guillotine’s, RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 32-24 | Best Win – Bernardo Sopai (8-1)

Nuzzi is from Italy and is one of the country’s brightest up-and-comers. Nuzzi has won his last seven fights winning a regional title along the way. He had his first real step up in competition last fight when he took on Bernardo Sopai. Nuzzi impressed in that fight beating a really good opponent. Fighting for Brave CF, he’s real close to a UFC shot.

From a technical standpoint, his stance kind of resembles Stephen Thompson’s, keeping his opponent guessing as to what his next move will be and counter-striking with precision. Unlike “Wonderboy,” though, he’s not afraid to move forward, looking for an opening to put somebody to sleep. “The Berserker” is constantly improving on his wrestling while on the ground; he’s getting close to being a polished product.
