I really hope the Korean Zombie gets his title shot! He's won two in a row in amazing fashion, including knocking out a previous #1 contender in seven seconds. I have a feeling he gets one more fight before a title shot. If he was Urijah Faber, instead of someone who occassionally trains with him, that title shot would be booked by now.
I agree. If Zombie was Faber himself, he would definitely be in line for a title shot already.
I seriously doubt Zombie will win against Aldo but I like him to get his opportunity.
Correct me if I am wrong but Zombie strikes me as a man with no fear. Unlike other Asian fighters from the East, Zombie has no fear of the stand up. I am not saying Asian fighters have fears. What I am saying is many Asian fighters fear the stand or at least - are too passive in that department. Zombie, IMO, has mediocre stand up but it is his will and fearless spirit which have caused problems for some of his opponents.
We all knew - going into the Hominick fight...that Hominick was the better striker and that Zombie was likely to be knocked out one way or another...well, at least I knew that....
But anyway, I like the Zombie. He is fearless, wild, and above all, entertaining. He is a real treat to watch and I agree he has improved tremendously. I just hope he does not succumb to the same plagues e.g. lack of cardio and gameplan, both of which have crippled many fighters from the East.
