The Colby Usman fight was one of the best title fights in recent times IMO. Was expecting a dull enough grappling match, but they just stood and traded the entire fight. Was very close until the KO. He definitely deserves a rematch most out of all of Usman's opponents.

That being said, I think the Masvidal fight was one of the biggest selling non McGregor PPVs, so can see why Dana would be interested in that one. They have the excuse that Masvidal didn't he a full camp, I suppose, but would a second fight really do huge numbers after how the first one played out?

Anyone see the video of khabib talking about the Justin fight ,
talks about the problems in training & that but the interesting part was the conversation during the fight,
Justin really was a deer in the headlights ,answering Khabib question in there is bizarre,

Khamzat retiring due to covid.

It's a shame if true, as while he was somewhat unproven he was a compelling presence in his short UFC career.

WOW! He must be ****ed and i know covid affects people differently with some suffering long term effects and i can't imagine how hard it must be trying to train with something like that. Hopefully it's something he can recover enough from to make a come back as he has so much potential. He's probably been trying to train through it, some complete time off might be what he needs.

Strangely that may be the case
If he retires and is taken out of the pool he could then go on a cycle to get himself back to where he was pre covid


What is the protocol with the testing pool on retirement and how long before he would be allowed to re-enter ?

6 months on re-entry I believe.

He was calling out Niel magny yesterday. Bit of a drama queen it seems.

Steroids are actually prescribed to some people suffering the initial breathing difficulties from Covid. My sister's boyfriend was given a course of them by his GP in order to keep him out of hospital. Ho took those in order that he wouldn't need supplementary oxygen and they worked for him and kept him out of hospital. He made a full recovery at home.

Khamzhat's condition appears to be more serious, judging by the fact that he's been coughing up blood. He may have suffered fibrosis to his lungs. There are some young people who require double-lung transplants after particularly severe bouts of the disease. Hopefully he doesn't fall into that category.

If Dana said that, it's 100% confirmed he's retiring.

That would have been corticosteroids not “steroids”.
