Lucas "Mineiro" Martins flies under the radar as a prospect, but does the kid hold promise as a name to watch in the lightweight division? You better believe he does.
Martins will present his skill set to the MMA world on the Fuel TV portion of UFC on FX 7, when he combats 10-1 phenom and fellow Brazilian prospect Edson Barboza. The bout marks the first of 2013 for both fighters, and we already know plenty about what Barboza brings to the table.

"He's fighting Barboza" won't suffice, folks, so let me educate you, if I may.
