10 Lightweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2023


Dylan Salvador

29 | 5’9″ | Lyon, France | 5-1 | 100% finish rate | 1 KO/TKO, 4 Submissions | Combined Opponents’ Record: 30-17 | Best Win – Arman Ospanov (11-4)

Salvador competed in Muay Thai and kickboxing for years before he transitioned over to MMA. He’s 5-1 in MMA and 64-16-2 in kickboxing/muay thai. Salvador is a former two-weight WAKO World champion and fought five times for Glory. He won the Glory lightweight contender tournament in 2016. Salvador has a kickboxing win over UFC contender Giga Chikadze.

His sole loss in MMA was a split decision and he arguably won that. Unlike the majority of kickboxers, Salvador won’t shy away from wrestling and using his grappling. In fact, the majority of his wins have come by submission. On the feet, he brings the pressure and will chop away with his kicks over and over. Salvador has been fighting tough competition lately proving himself to be a UFC-ready fighter.
