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. This week, it’s undefeated bantamweight Patrick Mix.Name: Patrick MixRecord: 10-0 overall; Bellator MMA debutDivision: BantamweightTeam: WNY MMA & Fitness / JacksonWink MMA We are JACKSON WINK 🤘🏾A post shared by Patchy Mix (@patchymix) on Jun 8, 2019 at 5:03am PDT While breaking away from the routine of working with the people who were there for you from the start is always challenging, it goes without saying that a young prospect with potential is far more likely to grow and develop training alongside high-level fighters and world champions under the tutelage of coaches who have guided athletes to those heights in the past and Mix has clearly benefitted from being there.One of the cool things about this matchup is that it’s not the first time Mix and Bandejas have been scheduled to fight each other. They were initially paired off together at Ring of Combat 59, but the bout was cancelled prior to the event.(Sidenote: Looking back at it, Ring of Combat 59 was a really strong regional card, with three fighters from the event already graduating to the UFC and two more standing as top regional talents).From a stylistic perspective, this is an intriguing matchup because Bandejas is at his best when he can keep his opponents at range and dictate the action with his jab and long kicks, while Mix will absolutely be looking to get inside, get it to the ground and go to work with his grappling.It’s also a really compelling fight because after making a splash with his knockout win over James Gallagher, Bandejas acquitted himself well against streaking veteran Juan Archuleta last time out and a win over the Nick Catone protégé would immediately vault the unbeaten Mix into the thick of the title chase in the bantamweight ranks.And if you’re going to lose, it’s far better to lose to someone with Bandejas’ experience and reputation while fighting on the big stage than getting caught out by somebody on the regional circuit. The fact that Patrick Mix hasn’t fought in a major promotion yet is confusing to me.No disrespect to King of the Cage, which has been around forever and is a reputable regional brand, but given what the 25 year old has already done in both the professional and amateur ranks, it’s surprising that his pairing with Ricky Bandejas this weekend at Bellator 222 in New York City is his big stage debut.Join DAZN and watch Bellator 222 on June 14Mix went 11-0 as an amateur and is now 10-0 as a pro, with 15 of those 21 victories coming by way of stoppage. Just like with anyone who plies their trade on the regional circuit long and successfully enough, there are going to be some professional opponents and guys who are completely overmatched scattered amongst his conquests. But there are also a couple crucial names in there that really stand out.In November 2017, Mix needed less than half a round to choke out Andre Ewell. Six months later, he needed less than two minutes to do the same to Tony Gravely.Ewell earned four straight wins following that loss, got signed by the UFC and beat Renan Barao in his promotional debut. After losing to rising star Nathaniel Wood in his sophomore appearance in the Octagon, he’s scheduled to face Anderson dos Santos later his month in Greenville, South Carolina.Gravely is also unbeaten since losing to Mix, rattling off six consecutive triumphs to rise to the top of the CES bantamweight division. He’s already successfully defended his title twice this year and feels like another guy who should find his way to one of the bigger stages at some point in 2019.And Mix finished them in a combined four minutes and 12 seconds.A native of western New York, Mix has been doing his last several camps at JacksonWink MMA in Albuquerque, working with the outstanding collection of coaches and training partners assembled at the famed desert outpost. View this post on Instagram Bellator 222 is flush with exciting fights and intriguing matchups, but this one ranks right up there for me.This is a huge opportunity for Mix to get the biggest win of his career and catapult himself into contention right out of the gate and at the very least, he should prove that he has the chops to compete with the best bantamweights Bellator has to offer.In many ways, it feels like when Bandejas was paired with Gallagher, when the game regional talent rolled into the cage and emerged victorious. Only now, it’s Bandejas looking to avoid getting upset by the new arrival.
