Top Five MMA Prospects Fighting This Week

Middleweight, Roland Dunlap (3-0)

Fighting at: NAFC: Colosseum on April 16, 2022.

Dunlap is an undefeated middleweight prospect with a 3-0 professional record. The 29-year-old out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin trains with Roufusport alongside fighters like Emmanuel Sanchez, Raufeon Stots, Brendan Allen, Gerald Meerschaert, and many more top talents. The 6’3″ wrestler won two state titles in high school and had a career record of 159-9. He went on to be a three-time All-American and wrestled D3 in the University of Wisconsin Whitewater

Even with his extensive wrestling background, you’ll see him in the cage fighting out of a classic karate stance. “The Dream” fights very loosely and very long. He’ll throw a lot of kicks and he’ll attack with both legs. Fighting with his lead right leg forward he will create a lot of action with long straight punches, but it’s his left cross that is very sniper-like. Where Dunlap shines is when he uses his wrestling. Dunlap does nice work changing levels as his opponents come forward to engage. He sneaks under punches to get a hold of the legs to lift guys up and slam them to the mat.

Dunlap is getting a layup on April 16 against Mike Johnson who sits at 1-2. He is a big guy as well standing at 6’3″ and coming down from light-heavyweight. Johnson is also a wrestling coach so it’s probably gonna be a wrestling match or a fight where Dunlap can let loose on the feet.
