10 Bantamweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2023

Manuel Exposito

22 | 5’7″ | Alta Gracia, Cordoba, Argentina | 9-0 | 8 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs, 5 Submissions | Combined Opponents’ Record: 30-15 | Best Win – Darlan Ferreira (8-1)

Exposito burst onto the scene in 2022 fighting and winning five times. Darlan Ferreira was a prospect on my radar and Exposito stopped him quickly in round one. The young man from Argentina won the Demo Fight featherweight title. He fought more so at featherweight but has lately been competing at bantamweight.

Exposito is a better wrestler/grappler than anything. On the feet, he is precise and is a good kickboxer. He throws good combinations as his right hand is usually on point. He’s good at getting under guys and slamming them down. Exposito is very dangerous at submissions in scrambles.
