I know the narrative of "he's Khabib toughest fight to date" is spewed around a lot, but I genuinely think that this is.

None of Khabib's previous opponents have been able to efficiently fight the takedown and I feel that Gaethje's experience and background could prove tricky.

Expect Khabib to do exactly what he has done in all of his other fights.
Hope that Justin knocks him out.

In two minds now. PPV is €30 and bit more awkward too because I will have to buy on a different device to cast or connect by HDMI. Only £20 in the UK as well which is a nice paddy tax they’re charging.

I don’t see replays anywhere either. Be difficult to avoid the result anyway.
You can't buy it to stream as far as I know, only available to buy for BT supscribers

I thought that until I watched the first round of his fight with Brian Cobb.

Khabib to get cocky with his standup and get knocked out in second or third round

I'm in the UK and I'm not paying £20 for it. I pay enough for BT Sport already. I can't do dodgy streams coz the quality bugs me but I'll find a recording of it somewhere afterwards. Not difficult to avoid the result imo, lockdown means it's not like someone will blurt it out in the pub before I get to see it.

It's a lot closer to his amateur wrestling peak. I've seen nothing to suggest he's improved that aspect of his game since.

I actually think this has a chance but surely he won't do this.
Hoping its Khabib time as usual!!

Looking forward to Whittaker against Cannonier too - I think Whittaker KO's him

I'm hoping Gaethje can make a fight of it but over the years there's been too much talk about him having not a lot of interest in wrestling/grappling anymore. Have a feeling he'll be put on his back and be stuck there, ground out and maybe submitted late. Anyone know anything about his submission ability, defensive ability really.

I just want to see Khabib challenged, watching greatness is great but it needs to be challenged sometimes so hopefully Gaethje can provide some but I think it'll be more of the same from Khabib. 

But MMA has had plenty of greats look unbeatable until they get a whooping you don't see coming.

I'd be so ****ing happy if Justin won. He's come a long way from his ufc debut and he's looked incredible the last few fights. Usually don't get excited for a Khabib hug fest but this could be great!

Someone went for Gaethje by submission. Imagine.

Love watching both guys fight and like them both as well.

Khabib will do what he does. Relentless chain takedowns and try and control Justin on the ground and pound him into oblivion. If a submission opportunity presents itself if Justin gasses he will take it.

Justin will use distance and range to try and land his vicious leg kicks and punches. The key will be can he avoid some takedowns and when he gets taken down can he pop back up before getting damaged and tired or will the constant pressure be too much like it has been for everyone before him. Will his fabled wrestling be enough to give him confidence to go for his strikes without the fear of being controlled for the round.

The two top guys in the world both at the peak of their powers.

It’s the most exciting fight it’s possible for the UFC to make, literally cannot wait to see it.
