Last Fight: Decision win vs. Marat Pekov
James Brum was a hard sell as a top prospect for me. However, given his recent performances, there is no doubt that the Brit is a UFC-worthy fighter with a bright future.
Brum is just 26 years old and has only been a pro since 2009. In that time, the grinder has fought 16 times, showing that he is a busy man.
Most of his wins are hard-fought decisions, where he uses a mixture of technical striking and heavy top position to wear men out. He has been a force in Cage Warriors and currently holds an eight-fight win streak over the likes of Marat Pekov, Olivier Pastor and James Saville.
The UFC will be in Ireland later this year and looking for local talent to feature on that show. Brum would be an excellent choice for the company to ink and place on that show.
