Just thought I would see what people think of this fight coming up at UFC 159?

Perhaps this fight is flying under the radar a little? My money is on Yancy and him moving to 10-0.

He has been working with the right people. And before anyone has a go, yes he has been working with the diaz brothers but lets be honest thats a good thing for his overall fight game.

Thoughts? Phone Post

you fight a guy from dagestan and that region and your fighting a savage from 600 years ago... not the pussified version of men today.

Yancy looks pretty small next to Shields, Melendez and Nate considering he used to fight at LHW and MW I was thinking Rustam may not be able to man handle him, but now I'm not so sure. Really excited for this fight though, two really exciting prospects with great records and they're both young.

I don't know much about Yancy, but Khabilov has looked like a beast. I'd be impressed if Yancy wins it
