3 Under the Radar UFC Fighters to Watch in 2013
The UFC is primed and ready to have a big year in 2013.
Much of that will be on the backs of their fighters. They will need to pair the right fighters together to produce exciting bouts that fans want to see.
This year there are some fighters who announced themselves to fans in their bouts last year, that are poised to make some noise in their divisions.
They are flying under the radar right now, but are ready to rack up some more wins and climb their way up the ladder this year.
Let's see three under the radar fighters coming into 2013.

Canadian Ryan Jimmo is the first fighter to make this list.
Jimmo had as impressive a debut as as they come when he knocked out Anthony Perosh in seven seconds.
Jimmo has been fighting professionally since 2007 and owns a total of 17 wins on his resume with only one loss.
The Canadian has shown wicked power and also has championship experience on his side. He is the former MFC Light Heavyweight Champion.
His next fight will come against James Te-Huna at UFC on Fuel TV 7.
He also does a killer robot and showed everyone at UFC 149 after he won his fight.

Jimi Manuwa brought his perfect record into the Octagon against Kyle Kingsbury when he made his UFC debut.
At the end of two rounds, his record was still perfect and he had another technical knockout victory to his credit.
Manuwa has excellent striking and this has led to 11 of his 12 wins coming by some form of knockout.
Manuwa is a former UCMMA Light Heavyweight Champion who defended the belt five consecutive times.
His next fight will be against Cyrille Diabate at UFC on Fuel TV 7.
We'll see if the "Poster Boy" can become a force in the UFC in 2013.

Siyar Bahadurzada made one heck of a UFC debut when he put Paulo Thiago to sleep with a big right hand.
Bahadurzada showed that he has insane power and should be a threat to anyone in the welterweight division.
He earned himself "Knockout of the Night" honours for his debut win.
He is a former Shooto Middleweight Champion and holds a record of 24 wins, 4 losses and 1 no contest. His last loss came way back in 2008.
The Afghani born fighter has shown scary power and is a true veteran of the sport, as he has been fighting since 2002.
Bahadurzada is expected to face Dong Hyun Kim at UFC on Fuel TV 8.
