I don't necessarily think this guy will be a P4P talent but this is as good a place as any to post this, anyway:

Venezuelan lightweight Maximo 'Maxi' Blanco; 6-2-1 (6 KOs) with one loss by DQ for a hellacious soccer kick Wanderlei would have been proud of. A freestyle wrestler but he is really known for his explosive stand up. He is so unpredictable and possesses scary power, absolutely mauling guys and knocking them out cold. The guy is a total nutter.

Marlon Sandro deserves a shout as well. I think the WEC will come calling for him soon (well they should anyway).

So I watched Jones vs Matushenko and I have to say he is very athletically gifted. I was impressed.

Bones and JDS.. Head and shoulders above the rest. If Aldo gets some exposure, maybe he is for real. But I need to see him against a star like Edgar or Kenny first.

Aldo fights at 145, and could fight at 135 if he wanted, I don't think it's fair to say he needs to fight LW's. He has also beaten the best the 145 division has to offer, I would call him quite proven.

I would put forward two absoluely world class wrestlers in Bellator: Ben Askren and Joe ******.

Also another Bellator fighter, Russian Alexander Shlemenko

maybe not quite pfp potential, but great up and comer.

Dominick Cruz has looked impressive so far as well.

Definitely Jon Bones Jones and Jose Aldo. I think King Mo is worth a mention as well. He has a ton of natural talent including power and speed backed by a lot of heart.

jonez usez roman greco, judo, sambo, bjj, etc techniquez altogether as one really well

pretty adept striker overall as well. seemz to enjoy throwing the spinning back fist and has had some success with it as well as getting himself in trouble by leaving him vulnerable and out of position

lookz like a kid that could put on a fair amount of weight if that waz his goal should be interesting to see how this playz out as his current weight makez me wonder if in future he will grow SLIGHTLY out of the 205 division but not enough to have a easy time handling some of the 265lb monsterz he may then come up against

all and all a real fun fighter to watch. has real good speed and is LONG in the armz and legz without being too skinny whereby force is sacrificed

personally i never once said, "oh my god this guy is gonna be unstopable if he continuez to develop to his potential"

however

i did find myself saying that for 22 he no doubt has alot of the skillz that could take him right up to the top

kewl thread by the way. i guess itz the creation of lotz of future time expectationz that alwayz makez prospectz such a interesting source of thought. will be expecting to see more of him for sure in future. oh yeah has got some great kneez also!
whats with the "zs" at the end of every word with an s in it???****ing annoys me that much i dont even read your dribble ...

He just completely dominated the two best fighters the Featherweight division has to offer, I'd say that qualifies him as "for real".

JDS at HW. He clearly deserves a shot but the UFC are stalling him.

Bones Jones at LHW. He clearly could be positioned for a title shot but is being stalled.
These are the main 2 guys.

At 185, I dunno. At 170, I think Hathaway is the most intriguing but has a long way to go. At 155, I need to think. Not sure at the lower weights either.

Bones and JDS.

Amir Sandollah i like this kid. He has great bjj and a good chin. He just have to work on his stand up and he'll be a serious contender.

Jim Miller--needs to get a title shot soon

Phil Davis is still young and could improved.
