Aiemann is a highly rated bantamweight prospect fighting out of the Tristar Gym in Montreal, Canada and is the younger brother of world-renowned coach Firas Zahabi.
Aiemann Zahabi has been creating waves on the Canada local scene and has three KO/TKO finishes and three submission finishes in his six wins.
With a few spots left to fill on December's UFC 206 card, Zahabi could be within a shout of making his debut in his home country when the UFC returns to Toronto for the first time since 2013 on December 10.
Also noteworthy this week is the testing data concerning the fighters on this weekend's UFC 205 card in Madison Square Garden.
Conor McGregor is the most tested man in UFC history and has provided 18 samples since testing began. In comparison, his opponent, Eddie Alvarez, has provided a total of 13 samples making him the third most tested fighter on the card behind Yoel Romero (15) and McGregor.
Interestingly, the biggest disparity between number of samples provided by two fighters set to meet on Saturday night is eight tests, with Jim Miller having provided just 3 and Thiago Alves 11.
