It would pain me to miss this fight live, however the card isn't that good and its PPV.

Its a really poor card but could throw up some good fights. The return of Khabib is something I can't wait for though, he'll have too much Dustin. Hopefully we get Khabib vs Tony fight before the end of the year.

Tony has the only chance of beating him I believe but Khabib's style is just so difficult to compete with. He drags you down, ties you up, smothers you and just pounds on you. He proved in the McGregor fight he won't respect your striking, he has the confidence to stand there and wait for an opening.

I say Dana and the Ufc are banking on a Khabib victory. I can see Khabib vs Tony and a co-main event of Diaz vs Masvidal for the big end of year card.

I've SKY Ireland - But UFC 242 does not seem to be listed - even in pay per view.

Is it PPV - How do I order it?!

Thanks.

I’ll be watching it on my TV.
Is that an option?

Khabib on points for me.

I think Dustin has a chance alright and I am not writing him off but for me it is about 75%/80% a Khabib win. Dustin has a shot if it remains standing. If Khabib is rocked at all, I think he will shoot like he has never shot before in his life. Then he will grind out the win.

While again not impossible, I don't see Dustin being submitted. Khabib probably does enough to at the very least, ensure Dustin doesn't get the points victory.

Agree with all of the posters above who say that Tony has the best chance of beating Khabib.

as much as i would love to see dustin win and i think he has a good chance of doing it. in the end i see khabib winning by points.

If dustin does pull it off im sure khabib will want a rematch straight away and if the ufc grants him that does Tony sit out for another 6-8 months?

30 is enough for it considering outside of khabib a lot won't any interest in this event
If ever an event was priced up on one fight it's this one.
I think it's way overpriced for the uk tbh and would love to see
the uk figures for this one as I think it will bomb.
while most of us here will also look forward to felder barbosa I'd imagine 60% of the casuals won't be too familiar or won't have seen their first fight

McGregor destroyed Poirier so I can't see how Khabib won't easily take him out..
