Jeff Monson vs. Moise Rimbon
Monson(ranked #36 HW) recently celebrated his 40th birthday, and despite rumors swirling about him monthly of signing with a big promotion or cutting to light heavyweight, he continues to plow on through the independent scene. Monson has gone 17-5 since his last fight in the octagon(UFC 65) defeating Roy Nelson, Sergei Kharitonov, and Ricco Rodriguez along the way. Monson is still a stud on the ground, but he has dropped some fights as of late because he does not want to engage on his feet.
Rimbon is a well-traveled veteran, who would best be served fighting at light heavyweight. Unfortunately for Rimbon, visa issues and opponents backing out of fights has been the norm. Rimbon will have a very difficult time escaping Monson’s takedowns and submission game, so he will have to work on his conditioning in order to stay light on his feet and bring this fight to the later rounds in hopes of securing the win.
