Who’s Next… Hybrid Pro Series 4

By:

Hybrid ThumbHybrid Pro Series held their fourth event this past weekend showcasing some of the best young and upcoming talent the province of Quebec has to offer. Here we will look ahead to see what could possibly be next for some of the more impressive winners.

Keep in mind, in most cases the matchups listed here are hypothetical and have not been announced or rumored to be taking place unless otherwise noted.

Let us know your thoughts on who should be up next for the big winners and the rest of the card.

Alex Morgan (4-2) vs. Maxime Dubois (5-2)
Alex Morgan headlined this past weekend’s card and won a clear cut unanimous decision over late replacement Lou Casenaz. Now training at Tristar full time, the native of Montreal, Quebec has now won three in a row – two of which came by way of devastating TKO. It’s now time for Morgan to step up and face some stiffer competition and Maxime Dubois is the perfect choice. Dubois, known as “The Gladiator”, has been a mainstay of the Quebec scene since 2011 and brings a lot of experience to the cage with his only two losses coming against Kyle Nelson and Mario Pereira. With Dubois being a very durable brawler with sneaky BJJ skills, Morgan will need to slow the fight down and use his wrestling to bring the fight down to the mat where he can use his powerful ground and pound to is advantage.

Jo Vallee (3-1) vs. Jason Bissonette (4-2)
Jo Vallee scored a big upset this past weekend serving Marc-Andre Bariault his first professional loss. Fighting out of Tristar South, Vallee may only have four paid bouts under his belt, but he also brings a wealth of amateur experience as well going 8-2-1. With the biggest win of his young career now behind him, Vallee should take a step up and fight someone with a bit more experience. It’s been almost 12 months since we last saw Jason Bissonette in the cage, where he earned a first round submission over Kevyn Thouin putting together a two fight win streak. This is a great match up for both men where Bissonette is more aggressive and Vallee is known to slow down the pace of the fight and pick his shots with accuracy. Who ever can achieve their preferred pace would be the one to come away victorious.

Aiemann Zahabi (5-0) vs. Andrew Cseh (6-4)
Aiemann Zahabi finally faced a fighter with a winning record, but it did not change the outcome as the Tristar prospect continued to decimate opponents in the first round.  This time he dismantled the previously undefeated Jeremy Dichiara in just 18 seconds. It is obvious that Tristar is trying to groom their star by wisely picking the correct fights to allow the young prospect to grow. Now 5-0, Zahabi needs to face someone with some experience and the 10 fight veteran Andrew Cseh is a perfect choice. Known as “Animal”, the native of Welland, Ontario has not fought on Canadian soil since 2012. Cseh had a his four fight win streak snapped when he returned from a two year layoff and lost via TKO to Josh Robinson at NAAFS: Caged Fury 21. It’s a not a far stretch to have Hybrid bring in fighters from Ontario and Zahabi has run through all worthy Bantamweights in Quebec.  Cseh would be a perfect test for Zahabi before stepping up against some of the country’s best.

Xavier Alaoui (4-0) vs. Denis Puric (6-3)
With guys like Aiemann Zahabi, Madel Nallo and Ilias Sanoudaksi training along side him, it’s easy to see how someone as talented as Xavier “The X-Men” Alaoui could fly under the radar. With his impressive leg lock victory this past weekend, Alaoui avenged his only amateur defeat dispatching Samuel Moisan early in the first round. Having only turned pro in May of last year, Alaoui has an extensive amateur record going 9-1 in unpaid bouts. With three of his four professional wins coming by decision, fans have yet to fully see the plethora of BJJ skills Alaoui hides under his hat. What do you do when you have a very tricky undefeated BJJ wizard? You need to test him against an accomplished striker and Denis Puric fits that description to a tee. Having recently returned from a trip to Thailand where “The Bosnian Menace” was sharpening his Muay Thai skills, he brought his current win streak to three with a split decision win over Josh Rich this past May. With all the Bantamweights in Quebec outside of Tristar below him, Alaoui needs Hybrid to search out of province for some stiffer competition.
