Future Fighters

Saturday 5 April 2008

Ok, Nightmare of Battle had this awesome post a few days ago. It really got me thinking about who are the best fighters under 25, in other words the next generation. NOB has pointed out Kirill Sidelnikov, Shoji and Kwang Hee Lee.

For mine, I think there are lots of talent out there. But I would like to add 3 names to the list, just because I think they deserve it.

Simeon Thoresen (24) 6-0-0 - Norwegian, trains with Joachim Hansen (who is quick to point out this young man's talent). Simeon is currently undefeated in Ultimate Worrior Challenge, look for him to make a move to a bigger organization soon.

Here is a highlight video.

Eduardo Dantas (19) 4-1-0 - His only loss is by disqualification. This 19 year old kid fights out of Nove Uniao and beat BJ Kojima at Shooto - Back to Our Roots 6, he was very impressive in that fight, a good tactical win. He is a featherweight, so I look forward to seeing him back in Japan. Currently most of his fights are in his home country, Brazil. Look for this kid to make a big impact in Shooto soon.

I have been unable to find any of his fights, I used to have one but its been removed.

Shinya Murofushi (24) 4-0-1 - This guy makes Shinya Aoki look fat and muscular. But it also makes him very call for his weight division. At 1.70m (5'7) he weighs about 52kg (115lbs). Last year he got promoted to A-class shooto fighter and he should have a bright future at flyweight in Shooto.

Simeon Thoresen is very very talented. Hoping to get him on cage Warriors very soon. Seen all his fights on UWC and although he is looking to step up alevel, it will be very difficult to find people willing to face him
