    Lamas is older and got flatlined in his last fight. Bektic looked solid in his last outing though his cardio is suspect and he got KOd by Darren Elkins. I think Bektic dominates him and wins 30-27. Who you got?

    Good chance of it happening but man Bektic has lost a lot of hype from that one loss, people barely talk about him now when he used to be Zabit before Zabit.

    Maybe we will see Bektic vs Zabit soon? :D

    Bektic has such potential!
    Elkins, what a warrior he is!

    Bektic is a younger, hungrier version of Lamas. Should be a good fight.

    He has finished his journey and evolved beyond journeyman form.

    Lamas is way better in terms of BJJ, wrestling should be even. Stand up = that is the question.

    Probably. Lamas is probably the least underwhelming top 10 featherweight, though. His only decent win in the last few years was against Jason Knight.

    I disagree.

    Tbh im not into the whole “ i get the shit kicked out of me for 95% of the fight and then somehow win” deal. Mostly because it never lasts.

    He is fun to watch tho

    Nah the Da Bronx win was impressive as well.

    Tapping him after he came in very overweight.

    Knight just isn't a good striker yet, Gabriel Benitez exploited that even more. He literally walks forward and hopes you gas out/wilt.

    Lamas got caught by Emmet, and that severely set him back, but I still got Lamas on this one. He’s too well rounded.

    Did he really have hype? I remember him being a -700 favorite against Elkins and I had no idea why. Then I saw Elkins beat his ass and I still have no idea why he was such a big favorite lol.

    He's chinny. Great overall skill set, but his durability is a concerning

    Yeah I still never saw anybody talking about him though, seemed really random that he was such a big favorite.

    I'd say yes. Seems like a changing of the guard moment

    I will say however, that Lamas is an excellent opportunist who will take any opportunity you give him and because of that he will be a good test to see if Bektic has really learned from the Elkins loss

    Good matchmaking here
