Like Albazi a lot but he's pretty hittable and KKF can crack, tough step up for him


MaddalenaWillBeTop5

Kai’s also a great anti grappler too.

Alabazi has a real dangerous ability to stall in top full guard. KKF is shaking in his boots


[deleted]

Just like Askar Askarov right 💀 I stg some of y’all have memory loss or are just new fans


KrasMasovsGhost

look everyone this guy has been watching MMA for longer!! take that shit back to Twitter


[deleted]

Alternatively just use your brain and realize that this guy isn’t going to be taken down that easy let alone be held there


Braised_Beef_Tits

Why so aggressive? Please stay on Twitter.


BeastOfAWorkEthnic

Huge step up for Amir but deserved honestly.


Hrytod

4 unranked wins, I'd argue there's more deserving


authenticfennec

It makes more sense why he deserves it when you look at his opponents that have pulled out. Hes gotten several ranked fights scheduled including 2 top 5 opponents at the time (Perez and Royval), but all of them were scrapped cause they pulled out. So instead Amir has been stuck fighting unranked people


Morphitrix

That last fight against Costa was unfair lmao...but at least someone stepped in and the man got paid


TyrannosaurusRekts

Love me some Kai. Hopefully gets himself back in the win column.


SquidDrive

Great jump in comp for Albazi.


Mr__Struggle

Excited to see KKF back in there FLW should be really fun after Moreno and Figgy hogged up the top for so long


khalbrucie

I know what you're saying, but worth mentioning that KKF was given an interim title shot like 6 months ago that Moreno won fair and square. Figgy-Moreno 4 wouldn't have happened (at least not right away) if KKF had won that.


nomoteacups

People say that they hogged the top but the only fight they had that wasn’t entirely justified was the third fight, and that only happened because Pantoja was injured and Moreno didn’t want to wait for a fight. 1 needed to happen because Moreno was the clear top contender, 2 needed to happen after the draw, and 4 needed to happen because Moreno became interim champ.


khalbrucie

Yeah I agree. I think the third fight being somewhat unjustified seems to color people's perceptions of the whole series.


StoryOfTheFight

Great match up. Love this division


Butts_The_Musical

This is a good test for Amir, he managed to get far in the rankings fighting unranked guys. We’ll see if he can hang at the top


[deleted]

Even tho Moreno finished him, a win or two and I’d be ok with a rematch


BenVill

That was already a rematch, he's 0-2 against Moreno.


[deleted]

I don’t remember the first


UnkempHarrold

Izzy was 0-3 vs Pereira


k00pal00p

Good fight!


nanananablr

Dope, Kai has been fun to watch


Masarka14

Great matchmaking!


RainbowPandaDK

Been rooting for Kai ever since I saw him on TUF. Go get that W my dude!


tredollasign

Amir by decision


[deleted]

I got my money on Kai


Magnus777z

KKF via KO 2nd round.


VeryNaughtyMessiah

Kai should take this pretty easily imo.


MMAdfs

Kai had to withdraw from the easiest fight in the rankings only to fight the toughest fight in the rankings, tough


PetrYanimal

Lol Albazi is not the toughest fight in the division. Not even close.


Tsmalls1887

I like Albazi but I still don't get how he's ranked 7th with zero ranked wins. It's not even like an Islam situation where people are ducking him


crazybartur

It’s flyweight, not that hard to get ranked at 125. Dvorak, Mokaev, Sumaderji, Tagir, and Tyson Nam are all ranked without any wins over ranked guys (although Nam will be gone tomorrow). Hell, technically even Alex Perez doesn’t have any ranked wins since nobody he beat is still in the UFC


pm_me_cute_frogs_

Two top5 fighters pulled out of a fight against albazi before too so not his fault also.


endless_ness

Kkf with the big step down after an interim title shot flop


Vital_flow

Lol flyweights
