    He should get more.

    He actually has an advanced well-rounded ground game.

    You could make that argument but I’m a hardcore.

    Ask the casuals this question.

    He looks more well rounded.

    I say we wait and find out. Stephens will be a good starting test.

    lol @ hardcore


    Yes, Zabit right now has more potential than we've ever seen in anybody before. I've said it previously that he is a Goat in the making and that we should all be keeping our eyes on him. Everybody in the mma world knows that his hype is the real deal

    Zabit reminds me of what the authentic Jesus probably looked like. Zabit "Stigmata" Magomedsharipov. Easier to spell than Joanna at least. Ill see myself out now.

    Not comparable.

    Adesanya is a specialist from kickboxing.

    Zabit is trained cage wrestler (wushu/freestyle).

    Both are prospects, actually contenders at this point.

    I think they both have great future, I don't see a fight they aren't competetive in.

    No. That's why I mentioned " given their skills set alone" .

    There's many more barometers we will be able to measure by but those will have wait for now.. Also, I lost that AV bet, still waiting on your malicious instructions sir haha

    Given Jesus, peace be upon him was middle eastern, he potentially was darker than Zabit. I feel you though.

    Definately not a blue eyed white guy though lol...

    lol ok well if I'm being real, I think they have similar skill sets, but I think Zabit has higher potential, I'm worried Izzy is too thin at 185. Zabit's height is an advantage at such a low weight class at 145.

    Dude don't even worry about the bet man. You are a good dude, I don't care... I will say if you truly want to honor it... use this as your sig "@YOLOGOGOPLATA has the GOAT AV and Ben Askren is the funkiest dude in MMA"
    keep that up until the Lawler fight. I don't care either way tho haha

    Theya re both overrated in precisely the way all good prospects are overrated. People are looking at their potential, which they have yet to reach. Both guys seem to have high ceilings.
