Fabinski lost to Gerald Meerschaert via submission (guillotine choke) at 2:00 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fabiniski falls to 1-3 in his past four fights, with all three defeats coming via submission. Fabiniski has had issues on the mat for a while and this was a terrible matchup for him considering Meerschaert entered the evening with 23 career submission victories. He now has 24. Fabinski has proven to be a capable striker who can more than hold his own in a kickboxing match, but there is a massive hole in his game and it's difficult to see him improving much in that area given the fact he turns 35 years of age in a little over a week.
Fighting Meerschaert in April

February 3, 2021
Fabinski will face Gerald Meerschaert in a middleweight bout at a UFC event scheduled for April 17, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Fabinski has dropped two of his last three fights, most recently losing to Andre Muniz via submission (armbar) in September. He'll attempt to return to the win column against Meerschaert, who lost to Khamzat Chimaev via KO (punch) at 0:17 of Round 1 in September. Meerschaert has advantages in both height and reach.
Gets subbed in Round 1

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

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.

March 15, 2020
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.
