    Sucks Yair pulled out I was really looking forward to that fight with Zabit! Once again we can’t get anything we want as fight fans... so who y’all wanna see fight Zabit now? I wouldn’t mind seeing Cub vs him

    Hopefully they can find a replacement for 228. Then he can fight Moicano.

    Makwan Amirkhan, Jason Knight or Alexander Volkanovski if it's not too short of notice.

    Also where's Dooho Choi at?

    I think we have a good chance to see Michael Johnson taking this fight.
    I think he has a good chance to knock Fili out in the first and to come out of the fight without a scratch.

    Now what an impact it would be for him, if he beats both Fili and Zabit...

    I didn’t know that. That’s lame. Probably his last chance

    I hope someone competetive. I want to see him tested, as he is certainly talented.

    excellent suggestions Bravo choke! I think Volkanovski would be the best choice. The guy just ran over the very tough Darren Elkins and hasn't lost since May 2013. 15fight winning streak.

    But.... maybe the UFC doesn't want anyone to stand too good a chance of beating Zhabit. Jason Knight is great but is now on a 3-fight losing streak so I think at this point Knight NEEDS a win and Zhabit is unlikely to give him that.

    Volkanovski would be great but he only fought in mid-July and.....who wants to fight Zhabit on 2weeks notice??
    Someone brave seeing a big opportunity will take it. I expect a decision very fast given it's just 2 weeks away. i'm guessing tomorrow perhaps we will know.

    another thought....(Heel_Mark1410 suggested it first) : Jeremy Stephens just IS that guy who will be like "don't care that it's short notice and that Zhabit is meant to be the Next Coming of Christ, I'll fight him".
    Stephens campaigned hard to fight Ortega a few months ago on like zero notice.

    Plus he's the right weight class, and he should be in shape as he only fought about 4weeks ago.
    I think also that UFC probably need someone relatively well-known given that right now the UFC 228 main event card could certainly do with some pizzazz.
