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

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.

Ele nocautiou o considerado melhor striker do Brasil ( Gilmar China) em menos de 3 minutos , e o China nunca tinha sido nocautiado , tendo mais de 100 lutas entre Thai e MMA , inclusives lutas contra Buakwau , Amendoim, entre outros

As lutas são todas casadas em favor dele...nenhum adversário de expressão.
O diferencial é seu empresário e seus contatos.

Mano, vocês tem um puta lutador nas mãos ai realmente, mas que ainda não foi experimentado como deveria. Dos 14 atletas que ele enfrentou, nem metade tem cartel positivo, e os demais não são expressivos.

Renato Moicano aqui de Brasília seria o lutador ideal para ele enfrentar afim de saber seu real nível.

De qualquer forma torço para que ele chegue longe!

as in the case with a lot of brazilian fighters its more about who those 14 fights were against... 14-0 look good on paper and i think he def qualifys as a prospect but i subscribe to the wallid school of though on these matters.

Opponent before after

Cemir Silva 2-4 2-5
Willidy Viana 3-0 3-1
Valdines Silva 8-5 8-5
Jose Alexandre 6-3 7-4
Gilmar Sales 2-1 3-2
Cody Williams 3-4 4-4
Vander Correa 0-0 0-1
Michel Igenho 1-8 1-1 0 (!!!)
Samuel Lima 0-0 0-1
Ivonei Pridonik 4-2 7-4
Edmilson Atanasio 0-1 0-2
Jorge Fernando 0-0 0-1
Danilo Molina 0-0 0-1
Jackson de Padua 0-0 1-2


Out of the 14 he fought:

5 had never fought before when they fought him (4 of these never even fought again)

4 had negative records when they fought him (including the most recent one)

5 had positive records when they fought him


Only a third were, MAYBE, good opponents.
(I won´t look at their opponents records too)


He looks good, but he´s nothing special.

Completely overrated.
