Gets subbed in Round 1
MiddleweightUFC
September 5, 2020
Fabinski lost to Andre Muniz via submission (armbar) at 2:42 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fabinski's game has always been just to grind away with control grappling, but that is asking for trouble against a submission artist like Muniz. We saw evidence of this right away, as Muniz worked a guillotine choke before climbing his legs up and snatching the armbar. After years of smooth sailing, it seems Fabinski has hit a wall in his career, having lost two of his last three fights by stoppage. This makes one wonder if Fabinski's style is viable against high-level competition. He falls to 15-4 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
Fight booked for September
MiddleweightUFC
July 20, 2020
Fabinski will fight Andre Muniz in a middleweight matchup at the UFC event on September 5, Marcelo Barone of Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
There is not a location announced yet for this event. Fabinski was supposed to fight at UFC London before the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the event. Fabinski has not fought since 2018, when Michel Prazeres snapped a three-fight winning streak. Having previously competed at welterweight, Fabinski will be moving up a weight class in a move that's become common with shorter-notice fights during the pandemic. Effectively, he'll also give up an inch in height and three inches in reach to Muniz, who is also the younger fighter.

Fabinski will no longer face Shavkat Rakhmonov on Saturday following the relocation of UFC London, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The UFC will be relocating the weekend's event, per an official statement, which leaves fighters like Fabinski unable to secure travel plans on short notice, especially given the recently-imposed restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19. It's unclear if this matchup will be rescheduled for a later date.

Latest addition to Stockholm card
MiddleweightUFC
May 8, 2019
Fabinski will take on UFC newcomer Sergey Khandozhko in a welterweight matchup at UFC Stockholm on June 1, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
Fabinski has compiled a 3-1 record with the UFC, most recently losing to Michel Prazeres via first-round submission last November. In those four fights, he's landing just 2.22 significant strikes per minute, but is averaging more than seven takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time. That number may be unsustainable, but gives fantasy owners a good clue as to how they should expect to compile the majority of points. He'll take on a fighter in Khandozhko that will be making his UFC debut with a record of 25-5-1, though four of those losses have happened in the last four years.
