    155 is no challenge for Khabib. In 6-12 months when his mind is a little more clear, offer him Usman.

    I thought Khabib's pressure would wear him down and he'd finish him in the 4th or 5th. Gaethje was gassed in the first. Didn't see that coming. He had his way with him both times they went to the ground. Khabib is/was just on another level.

    He took a pretty big hit like it was nothing. Then took a kick and turned it into a submission. What an absolute beast and completely likable dude.

    Maybe, but he seems like the guy that sticks to his word, especially to his mom. Maybe she changes her mind.

    it is crazy how khabib can stand with mcgregor and gaethje easily. obviously they have to be always looking for the takedown but still..khabib can take a punch

    i think Khabib just wanted to beat the fuck out of Conor. he never tried to advance much, just wanted to pummel him.

    Nah, Poirier still rocked Khabib pretty good but was too tired to finish.

    Because Connor is so extra outside the cage, people forget how damn good he is when he’s on his game. Just an elite striker

    Khabib not in the greatest of all time competition until he does it at 2 weight classes

    I'd go with Tibau. The one guy Khabib could not get to the ground. 0-13 on takedown attempts in that fight.

    Ton of folks thought Tibau won that fight as well, including most online scorers. Crowd hated the decision. But the judges gave him a UD.

    He just loves to compete. He wasn’t much different after the Alvarez and Poirier fights.

    His interview right now with Megan Olivi just enforces how much he fucking loves fighting.

    Tony Ferguson enters the chat.

    I mean, at the end of the day is he the only guy who welcomes the takedown and whatnot?

    Yea he's still GSP but id like to see him get a couple fights before jumping in with Khabib. 3 years is a long time and 1 fight in 7 years is tough.
