The Beaten Path: The Top 25 MMA Prospects for 2014, Part 2

On Monday, we experienced Part 1 of The Beaten Path's top 25 MMA prospects of 2014. And it was good. 

Now it gets gooder. From No. 12 all the way to the top overall prospect of the year, we are strapped in and ready for lift-off.

As a reminder, any current or former UFC signee is ineligible, as are Bellator tournament competitors. The word "prospect" means "someone who is likely to succeed or be chosen," and that's our guideline. We look for fighters, young in age and to the sport alike, who have a chance to do big things. 

Additionally, this is a no-repeat list. So as noted in Part 1, no one from the 2013 list is eligible this year.

Finally, is this a definitive list? Yes, it is. Is it possible we left people off or got the order wrong? Nope. But if you can't suppress the urge to kid yourself, go ahead and vent it out in the comments. I don't want you carrying that vitriol around with you. Let's get it on.
