    So how many of you guys believe Yaír doesn't stand a chance in hell, and or do you believe he can beat Zabit? Zabit has a very high level of hype behind him. Yaír did at one point as well. I am a Yair fan but for some reason I'm afraid for the dude. Your thoughts about this fight gentlemen

    Will it be

    I want to believe he can do it, and if he does I'll be amazed. Yaír that is

    Great fight for sure , Can't wait .
    with the quality of the other fights announced for this card IMO it should be the main event .
    Personally I would like to see Zabit win this fight.
    but as long as they put on a great fight I don't mind who wins either way .

    Zabit is better everywhere. Physically stronger too.

    This is going to be a bad night for Yair, but a fun night for everyone else.

    I can't count Yair out at all because he's got a lot of weapons that can pose problems for anyone. That said, styles make fights and I think Zabit is a bad match up for him.

    This should be a great fight regardless

    Zabit seems ok, he has some skills, but I will say when I watched him vs Bochniak, I felt he really had to use everything he had to be in the fight. He was dominating, but it seemed like it was giving his all on a guy I've never really heard of. He'll probably win because Yair seems very limited on the ground.

    Incidentally he also doesn't do himself any marketability favors by looking like he's on the no-fly list.

    Zabit needs mix it up and take Yair to the ground and dominate him there

    The key is that Zabit can wrestle too. He'll no doubt mix in some takedowns.

    Either way, I have a bad feeling this is putting Yaír up as a sacrificial lamb being given to a fkng alpha tiger, Yaír can hurt any man but Zabit is something else!

    I don't give a shit, I'm still going Yaír in this fight by head kick

    yeah im taking zabit.

    nothing against yair, most of the time he does have some stylish hair. but i dont think that looks alone will help him get by that goofy looking zabit and he will get outmatched in every aspect of the fight.

    I'm sure he's considering facial reconstruction surgery to make him more appealing to you

    Zabit Wins on account of his ground game.

    lol i wasn't aware Yair was still in the UFC. Go Yair.

    Also, Zabit is highly overrated.

    Makes sense; he gets punched in the face for a living, which I pay for. So he's kind of doing that already.

    This is the first time zabit's facing actual competition so i'll wait and see.
    I'm not all that convinced by the hype, sure he's flashy but has he really shown any exceptional qualities?
    His last fight with the screeching manlet sure didn't
