#1 — Smealinho Rama (10-3)
The 25-year-old is a former WSOF heavyweight champion but has yet to compete this year after recovering from an injury last year. Keep an eye out for Rama in the PFL Light Heavyweight tournament when that gets announced.
#2 — Ryan Spann (13-5)
Spann captured the LFA light heavyweight title by knocking out UFC veteran Alex Nicholson in the first round at LFA 32 on Jan. 26.
#3 — Kyle Noblitt (9-1)
Noblitt is coming off the first loss of his career to Jamal Pogues on Feb. 10. He slips to the No. 3 spot.
#4 — Alonzo Menifield (6-0)
Menifield kept his unblemished record intact at LFA 33 on Feb. 16 when he submitted Brice Ritani-Coe in the first round. Don’t be surprised if Menifield gets signed by the UFC this year.
#5 — Cameron Olson (9-3 NC)
The 27-year-old Roufusport product is coming off a second-round submission victory over Jaquis Williams at LFA 29 in December. He faces No. 19-ranked Teddy Ash on March 2 up in Canada for the vacant Prestige FC light heavyweight belt.
