It's hard to keep up with all the MMA action these days. Why, I remember when there was only one event each month, for the entire sport. For a nickel, you could take the streetcar into town, watch old Frank Shamrock tear someone's ankle off, get yourself a frankfurter and a fizz pop and still have enough left over to take in the latest matinee film.
But I'm going to tell you something: The times have changed. Believe you me, it can be a full-time job just following the UFC, much less all the other promotions out there, including those where the stars of tomorrow are forming.
That's where we at The Beaten Path come in. We want to make it easy for you to find and follow the sport's top prospects. As such, here are five up-and-comers in action this month, including coordinates for where and when to watch them. Keep the change, you filthy animal.
