Muhammad Mokaev, Manel Kape

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of the flyweight division. A parade of top fighters have started to break through and now, there’s an argument to be made that it’s one of the most exciting divisions in the entire promotion.

On July 27 in Manchester, England we will see another high profile match-up take place at 125 pounds. It’ll be Muhammad Mokaev going head to head with Manel Kape, with both men tipped to be future world champions – or at least challengers for the belt.

In a recent interview, Kape made it crystal clear what he plans to do to Mokaev this summer.

“There is no other fighter,” Kape said in an interview with Grind City Media. “If there was, it’s (Amir) Albazi, but Albazi is injured, so maybe he’s going to have one more fight. Mokaev is the youngest fighter right now. He’s been making a lot of noise, he’s (on a) six-win streak.

“So, there has to be someone. That someone is me that has to shut down this. …I’m going to do my job. I’m going to do my work, and my work is never boring. Everything I’m going to do is a masterclass, everything I do is special. Everything I do is perfect.”

“I’m not focused on the wrestling. I’m not focused on his strength of wrestling,” Kape said. “How many fighters have you seen take me down? Even Pantoja the champion when he fought me, he didn’t take me down, you think Mokaev is going to take me down? If he takes me down, I’m going to do what I did to David Dvorak, I’m going to take his arm off.”
