New fan favourite Zabit faces the gate keeper of the featherweight division Jeremy Stephens. With an impression striking arsenal and effortless flow into dominate wrestling, his impressive win steak and flashy style has gave Zabit the opportunity to make the world take notice this weekend in Las Vegas.
Zabit is the younger, fresher more talented fighter between the two for sure and I expect him to impress UFC fans once again with a TKO or submission victory.
I’m very shocked that the book maker decided to make this line so far apart, you can get a UFC veteran in Diego Sanchez at huge underdog prices vs a guy who has had 7 professional fights.
This will be a learning curve for Micky as he will soon realise calling out a fighter with as much experience as Diego this quick into his career will back fire and see him take his second loss in the UFC.
Weili Zhang has shown since her UFC debut that she is not to be messed with, dominating performances in both of her UFC scheduled fights she has propelled herself right into the women’s straw weight division shark pool. Her opponent this weekend will be UFC veteran Tecia Torres who does whatever it takes to grind her opposition and get the victory.
Tough fight for Zhang but I can’t see Tecias approach working with Zhang here, I think Zhang can one day get a shot at the straw weight belt and she knows this herself and will be over confident coming into this fight. Zhang might be the name on everybody’s lips by the end of UFC 235.
The light heavyweight divisions recent insurgence of new talent has gave us some great highlight reel moments. Both Johnny and Micha have been included in those said highlights but with Micha having the weaker chin, I see Walker adding to those highlights this weekend with a tko finish.
Micha has a dangerous submission game, yes! But every fight starts standing and I don’t think Johnny will need more than one round to land the finishing strike.
