6. Rick Glenn
“The Gladiator” has not lost a fight since 2010, and he has picked up a nice piece of hardware since then, winning the World Series of Fighting featherweight title from Georgi Karakhanyan at WSOF 10.
The 25-year-old Roufusport product competed in six different independent promotions before hitting his stride in the Ray Sefo-led promotion. Those who know him are familiar with his razor-sharp standup game, but Glenn has five wins by submission, as well. Plus, he has finished his opponent six times in the first round.
While a rematch with Karakhanyan looms due to the circumstances under which he won, Glenn figures to learn from his mistakes. In a weight class like 145 pounds, a fighter must constantly improve his game. With Glenn’s height and striking prowess, look for him to continue making noise and validating his spot on this list.
