10 Bantamweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022


“Ferocious” Farid Basharat

23 | 5’6″ | England but from Afghanistan | 7-0 | 5 Finishes | 1 KO/TKOs, 4 Submissions’ (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 23-15-1 | Best Win – Janne Elonen-Kulmala (16-8-1)

Farid Basharat is the brother of recent UFC signee and Contender Series contract winner Javid Basharat. Just like his brother he has tons of upside being a really good talent with a high ceiling. He’s going to be in the corner of his brother in the UFC so eventually, the UFC will take a look as they should.

On the feet, Basharat fights comfortably with his hands low relying on counters and movement. He also switches stances frequently and uses a lot of backward movement. Basharat mainly fights in bursts when standing, throwing many flying knees. That said, he takes a lot of risks. Basharat has excellent kickboxing and a wide diverse attack. He’s stronger on the mat and to get it there he has a good single leg and trips along the cage. Jiu-jitsu is his best weapon even if that is just with control or winning important scrambles.
