UFC Sao Paulo is chock full of fantastic matchups between prospects and the veterans who love to thwart them. On this week’s episode of Heavy Hands we’re talking about the process of becoming a prospect, and where we expect these standout fighters to go next.

First there’s Rashid Magomedov, a Master of Sport in both boxing and Russian hand-to-hand combat, who combines his precise hands with a stellar kicking game and excellent distance management. Magomedov, a finished product who has yet to break through, faces off against Gilbert Burns, a true prospect with massive potential but only three and a half years of pro MMA experience.

We also discuss Thomas Almeida, Corey Anderson, and the other young athletes that make UFC Sao Paulo such a fantastic card from top to bottom.
