Another year, another edition of the infamous "5 Prospects the UFC Should Sign" series.

We as MMA fans are a little older and a little wiser. We're getting accustomed to more and more MMA popping up in the mainstream.

It wasn't long ago that the UFC and Bellator were seemingly the only options on TV. Now, in addition to the UFC being featured on the Fox networks and Bellator on Spike TV, CBS Sports has Titan Fighting Championship and NBC Sports has World Series of Fighting, among other things.
