Record: 5-0 (Tynanes) and 5-2 (Edwards)
Age: 23 (Tynanes) and 24 (Edwards)
Promotion: One FC (Tynanes) and Sparta Combat League (Edwards)
I couldn't decide whom I wanted to kick off the list, as both Lowen Tynanes and Marcus Edwards are young prospects with big upside. So, they will tie for the 10th spot on this list.
Tynanes is one of the up-and-coming talents coming out of Hawaii who are beginning to show up more in this sport. He has been fighting in the Pacific for his entire five-fight career, including two fights with One FC and a fight with the Philippines-based URCC.
Four of his five wins came via knockout or submission, which show that he is a well-rounded individual. Add to the fact that he owns wins over notables Eduard Folayang (doctor stoppage), Vuyisile Colossa (rear-naked choke) and Felipe Enomoto (TKO), and you have a young, future contender.
Edwards is a product of FactoryX Muay Thai, the same gym that hosts Chris Camozzi, Gilbert Smith and Chase Hackett. This gym has prepared him in his seven-fight career thus far, which has seen him step in the cage against Justin Gaethje, Efrain Escudero and Dakota Cochrane.
He has finished all five of his opponents including three brutal knockouts. His biggest fight to date was against Escudero, which ended via a contentious split decision that could have easily gone the way of "Bad Intentions."
