Thomas de Almeida is the greatest fighter you haven't heard of

The term prospect is utilized far too much in the world of MMA. You’ll see commentators and promoters using this term to describe a fighter that’s in their 30’s. Speaking as a baseball fan, if you called a 30-year-old player a prospect, you would be laughed out of the room -- it’s as simple as that. MMA does have unique situations such as guys coming over from Olympic wrestling, or any athletes that are elite in one discipline. Still, the term is overused and we as fans of MMA should learn how to use the word properly.

Thomas de Almeida is a prospect in every sense of the word. He’s a mere 22-years old, with a record of 14-0 finishing every one of his opponents, ten by the way of TKO, four by way of submission. Before September 21st, he never went out of the first round and the longest time he spent in a cage was in his first professional fight lasting 4:00. If you don’t know who he is, familiarize yourself with the Chute Boxe product, because pretty soon, he’ll be delivering liver shots on cable TV.
