    I think you mis-read my post. I'm talking about more recently, not before his first fight in the UFC, you dilly dilly.

    Booo. This guy sucks and doesn't do anything to help Zabit gain more exposure.

    Zabit and that guy that just fought...forget his name...he's a middleweight I believe..he also had incredible standup...reminded me of anderson silver...but more precise...but his ground game probably needs work. he just fought last week...made his debut.

    Conor can’t kick for shit. Glad he stopped those “fancy spin kicks” aka useless capoeira kicks that didn’t come close to landing.

    1. i got to give respect to those guys who would've taken or are willing to take this fight!
    Lobov and Brown...

    Zabit is the hottest prospect right now and a nightmare match up for everybody at 145...

    2. Today, as a hot prospect and massivley talented fighter in all areas...this is what you get when you absolutley run through you first two opponents.

    You get noticed...but you get avoided by the guys with better names and a higher rank...



    I don't think most of them are afraid to fight those guys...they are more afraid of losing their spot and losing to a guy with a name they or a lot of people probably can not pronounce the right way...
    High hisk...low reward for them.

    Fuck no Zabit deserves a step-up in competition.

    Give him at least a top 20-15.

    He landed some...and he has some good basic body kicks...which he used very effectively against mendes...but he seemed to use his kicks to set up his punches...He's actually a very good kicker...isn't a knockout kicker...but still has some good kicks.

    That's bullshit, dude.

    I hate Conor, but he has a great front leg side kick among other kicks.

    zabit meaning "kills" or "he kills"

    He called out people months ago. Yair and Artem both.

    this. I'm not interested. It's the same shit with Mairbek Taisumov. The UFC just keeps wasting their prime talent.

    I do know about that fight. It was the finals of the Russia MMA Union National Championships. Winners then go on to fight in the WMMAA World Championships.

    The two had to go through like 5 fights across 2 days just a few days earlier before making it to the Finals.

    Edit: That's the amateur loss he had.

    Brown is tough mf, but i agree with u
    he has nothing to lose and if he can really get the w he could avoid to get cut

    I seen the Artem call out after he won one of his fights and there was a picture of them squaring off in what looked like a night club in Russia, so thought they would inevitably fight. Artem said he was all go to fight him, despite Abdelaziz and whoever Tweeted that Kavanagh said 'no' Didn't hear that about Yair before - but when it's a fighter managed by Abdelaziz, I tend to be skeptical of him.

    He's a good fighter from what we've seen, but probably aiming a bit too high at this stage, though I'd watch him in any of those fights.

    So skeptical that he must be bullshit yet the fighter's he's tagged haven't called him out for being bullshit if you were remotely correct about your assertion.

    Its evident they were approached but didn't want it for whatever reasons.

    I read some Tweets from Artem saying it wasn't true. Just because the others didn't write anything back doesn't necessarily mean they were approached or are scared to fight him. That's the impression I got from Abdelaziz when he went on his rant on Helwani's show.

    From reading the stuff that's being out there about him, to the random Tweets by his fighters telling everyone what an amazing man he is, to threatening people to 'shut their mouths' when they'd slaughter him - it's hard not to be skeptical of him.

    What isn't true? Artem did want the fight, but his team didn't want it. Why else do you think it didn't happen.
