Last week I was talking to a well-known MMA columnist and Internet radio host about top unsigned prospects in MMA that have never fought for a major promotion. I’m not naming this person so that I can protect his identity, but the guy knows his stuff. I asked him who he felt was the top unsigned prospect in MMA was and his response was Jake Rosholt.
I know a little about Rosholt having written a feature about him and his Team Takedown teammates for FIGHT! several months back. And I have to concur with said columnist/show host’s opinion. Just a few days after that conversation took place, our friends at RawVegas.tv released a video featuring Rosholt working with top jiu jitsu instructor Marc Laimon.
Incidentally, one of Rosholt’s teammates, Eric Bradley, will be making his EliteXC debut this Saturday vs. Mikey Gomez on the undercard for “Street Certified.” The bout will be available on ProElite.com at 7:30 p.m. ET.
