10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2023


Bogdan Guskov

30 | 6’3″ | Dukent, Uzbekistan | 13-2 | 13 Finishes | 1 KO/TKOs, 2 Submission’s | Combined Opponents’ Record: 57-37-2 | Best Win – Nurlan Toktobakiev (14-5-1)

Guskov is impressively 11-1 in his last twelve fights. Born in Uzbekistan, Guskov lives in Russia and has fought for various big promotions in the country. He’s been fighting since 2015 and all his wins have come inside the distance. If that loss to Vyacheslav Vasilevskiy didn’t happen in 2020 Guskov would probably already be in the UFC.

Guskov is a very dangerous guy with a lot of power. He throws knees, hooks, kicks, and fires something different every time he throws. He also has lights-out power and a nasty counter game. His looping right hook may be his best weapon but his ability to mix it up makes him dangerous. Guskov even has wrestling in his back pocket but it’s hard to tell the level that it’s on. He’s very interesting in light heavyweight and would make a good signing for the UFC.
