This fight needs to happen
It would be fun but Moicano should be fighting a top 5 guy. Zabit should fight someone like Cub or Stephens.
I’d like to see Zabit vs Ricardo Lamas or Darren Elkins, someone in that range before he jumps up and gets a top 5 guy.
They should book the cub fight. I think Zabit will make easy work of him and it's a good name to have on your resume. He'd be one fight away from a title shot after a Cub win.
One of zabits toughest fights for sure
I think Zubaira would love a rematch with Moicano
That's what I want to see as well, perfect step up. I think Cub can do fine standing with him but it will depend how he deals with Zabit's grappling.
nah, too soon. moicano should be in a title eliminator. zabit can't go from brandon davis to moicano. at least fight a ranked opponent first before taking on a title contender
Moicano doesn't need to be fighting lower league guys like that Russian
Moicano's only loss is to Ortega.
He belongs right into the title-picture after Holloway vs Ortega has or hasn't happened (because Max maybe won't fight at FW again)
Yep, the grappling would be a big problem for Cub, despite his long time black belt. In terms of striking, I don't think Cub is anything special. He is creative but he ends up being off balance when throwing strikes. He isn't a huge puncher like Stephens either, so there's not that threat of getting slept from a mistake.
Moicano is one of my favorite fighters currently in the UFC. His striking stands out, it is so crisp.
That's a pretty big jump for now. I'm not saying he isn't ready, but he isn't that proven yet. Let him get a couple more fights because Moicano might do to his buzz what Cody did to Almeida.
If so, it should be on 231 for when Max pulls out.
But i would rather see Moicano/Mendes & Zabit/Bektic
