Laimon’s Terms: Marc Laimon works with top unsigned MMA prospect Jake Rosholt

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 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 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Here’s a look at Rosholt:

  • MMA SKOOL ™ says:

    Sam, is there any indication that the UFC does not want to deal with fighters with a Team Takedown form of management/representation?

    Just curious.

  • Sam Caplan says:

    MMA Skool, I don’t know the UFC’s official position. I think Fedor’s situation is very similar to Team Takedown in a lot of ways. At the end of the day, the reason why the UFC didn’t want to do a deal with Fedor came down to the demands, not the structure of the relationship.

    Ted Ehrhardt, who started Team Takedown, seems like a solid guy. If its in the best interest for the UFC and Ehrhardt to do business together, I don’t see a problem in a deal getting done.
