During our FanHouse UFC 99 live chat, we got an interesting question from a reader: Who is the best young fighter in MMA? Mike Chiappetta and I discuss below.
Michael David Smith: I like Jon Jones a lot.
Mike Chiappetta: Jones is very good, I also think Ryan Bader has the chance to be something special working with the Lally brothers, who are excellent striking coaches to add to his top-notch wrestling.
Michael David Smith: Jones vs. Bader for the light heavyweight title in 2012.
Mike Chiappetta: Cain Velasquez is probably the best prospect in MMA right now.
Michael David Smith: Josh Grispi is a very talented young fighter.
Mike Chiappetta: Gegard Mousasi is another top prospect, though it's hard to call him a prospect since has over 20 fights.
Michael David Smith: Mousasi is a great fighter. It's easy to forget Mousasi is only 23 years old. He might be the best in the world born 1985 or later.
