Scouting the Globe 2022: The Five Best Prospects From The United States


Flyweight, Clayton Carpenter (5-0)

Young flyweight Clayton Carpenter trains out of a top camp in the MMA Lab under head coach John Crouch.

Carpenter has not only had success in MMA, he’s gotten some nice accomplishments in a bundle of disciplines. He was the USA Junior National Muay Thai champion, a four-time Muay Thai National Champion, a Junior Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, World Junior Grappling and Pankration medalist, and an IBJJF World Champion in gi and no-gi.

Carpenter actually has a win over one Bellator star Aaron Pico, defeating the top prospect in a 2009 Pankration tournament. Carpenter has been killing it in LFA as of late. He’s fighting this season on the Contender Series and I bet he wins and gets to the UFC.
