10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2023


Murtaza Talha Ali

25 | 6’0″ | Al-Muharraq, Bahrain | 6-0 | 6 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs, 3 Submission’s | Combined Opponents’ Record: 29-8 | Best Win – Mikheil Sazhiniani (8-2)

Ali was one of the highest-level light heavyweight amateurs in a long time. Ali is a two-time IMMAF world champion which is the biggest accomplishment out there as an amateur. He’s been carving a path in Brave CF in the Middle East as a pro. Ali is personally one of my favorite prospects in all weight classes.

Ali is a good striker and an excellent wrestler. He’s had no issue closing the distance and powering guys to the mat. Ali has solid ground and pound and can grab the neck at any time. Ali has the blueprint to be the next big thing at light heavyweight and I think highly of him, being my #10th-ranked prospect.
