    Gaethje v Khabib, a fight I never knew I wanted. Make it happen. He has a chance imo

    Actually a pretty amazing main card, so many great scraps and last minute rallying.

    Can you imagine a Gaethje Ferguson fight? I mean Ferguson would almost certainly win but it'd be one hell of a scrap.

    My money would not be on Ferguson, that ship has sailed...

    And a perfect backflip too.....

    Got to be the biggest draw in the UFC now.

    For a split second I thought he was going to land on the doctor who'd just rushed into the octagon!

    Just watching the prelims now. The judge who scored 30-27 for Kenney seriously must have been smoking crack.

    Sure has
    I think khabib would find Justin as hard to beat as anyone in the division right now
    What a division it is though right now

    Why do ye give him such a chance, based on his striking? No one's ever seen him wrestle in MMA

    Good point!

    I don't actually know how good his wrestling is

    From his wrestling pedigree if his TDD holds up he would make it an interesting fight with a real possibility of getting the finish. Great fight to make imo, lots of unknowns which will make it very interesting. Still a high chance of getting mauled though.

    What Khabib does best, other than the obvious wrestling, is getting strikers so paranoid that they can never get an offence going. Justin would be pretty interesting, at least he has good wrestling to fall back on. Would really like to see Justin v Khabib as well, or else Askren v Khabib at some point. Though Askren is an amazing wrestler, unlike Khabib who has competent striking, his stand up is seriously lacking.

    I mean that IMO Furguson has slipped from the focus of the UFC, other fighters, and fans his legal and mental issues have taken their toll, and I don't see a way back.
