Storley will eventually come up against the same thing, but it’s not likely to be this weekend in Uncasville, Connecticut.Welterweight is easily Bellator MMA’s deepest and most competitive division, so if he runs his winning streak to double digits on Friday night, Storley should get a chance to prove himself against more proven talent in his second appearance of 2019, at which point we’ll be able to get an even better read on where his ceiling truly rests.As of right now, the unbeaten “Storm” stands as one of the top young talents on the company’s roster and someone you should be tuning in to see at Bellator 215. Join DAZN and watch Paul Daley vs. Michael Page at Bellator 216 on Feb. 16The 26-year-old is the protégé of Brock Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion who hails from the same hometown — Webster, South Dakota — as the undefeated upstart, who wrestled collegiately at the University of Minnesota, just like the mayor of Suplex City.A four-time All-American, Storley has made a smooth transition to MMA, debuting in the summer of 2015 and collected nine consecutive victories and seven stoppages as he readies to take on Ion Pascu this weekend at Bellator 215.Though he’s faced limited competition for the most part — as all newcomers do in their early days — Storley has shared the cage with a couple seasoned foes along the way, earning a unanimous decision win over TUF veteran Matt Secor at the end of 2017 and pounding out a finish against AJ Matthews last time out. Pascu represents a step up in competition — a seasoned veteran of the European circuit who is 0-2 inside the Bellator MMA cage, but earned a unanimous decision victory over Alex Lohore last year under the BAMMA banner.Just as a win over Pascu propelled Ruth to a new tier of competition at the start of last year, a win on Friday for Storley should do the same.As much as the sport has taken major steps forward in recent years in terms of styles and training and the level of athletes being drawn into the cage, collegiate wrestling —or any high-level wrestling for that matter — remains the best base for success in mixed martial arts and that’s a huge part of why Storley’s ceiling is so high.You don’t earn All-American honors four consecutive years while wrestling in the Big 10 without being ultra-talented and when you combine that with years of experience dealing with weight cutting and tough, physical training, you have an outstanding starting point for a career in the cage.On top of his pedigree on the wrestling mats, Storley has also hooked himself up with an outstanding team, working with the crew at Power MMA in Gilbert, Arizona, home of Bellator “Double Champ” Ryan Bader, C.B. Dollaway and former UFC welterweight kingpin Robbie Lawler. Learning from that collection of accomplished veterans with an excellent coaching staff shepherding his development should keep Storley making steady progress as he works his way up the ranks and through this period of his career.The key will be how he transitions to the next level — how the dominant skills he’s displayed thus far hold up once he gets into the cage with opponents he can’t simply overmatch physically or “out athlete,” which is often the first major hurdle for competitors who have taken the same path.Bader ran into it with Jon Jones. Phil Davis faced it against Rashad Evans. Ruth encountered it with Neiman Gracie. Prior to every event, Under the Radar will cast the spotlight on an up-and-coming talent who shows the potential for growth in their division and isn’t getting enough attention as they head into battle.Name: Logan StorleyRecord: 9-0 overall; 4-0 Bellator MMADivision: WelterweightTeam: Power MMAWhile he hasn’t garnered the same kind of attention as rising stars A.J. McKee, Aaron Pico or Ed Ruth, unbeaten welterweight Logan Storley is another youngster on the Bellator MMA roster that people should be following closely in 2019.
