Dustin is a real test
I think Khabib can pound on him
interested to see how drained from the cut Khabib is
Solid main, good matchups and I've heard of most of the fighters. So am I bringing positive vibes for once? Absolutely not.
You can judge the strength of a card based on 2nd and 3rd biggest fights, and this card fails that test badly. Barboza-Felder is a good fight but it's a pointless rematch and has no business being a co-main. The whole card has 'fun' fights, but no major implications for any division.
And let's be honest, even Khabib-Dustin is overshadowed because of Ferguson.
Ferguson better get the next shot
I think Khabib's discipline is on point since his daddy is there, his dad couldn' show up to the fights in the states due to visa issues
looks like Khabib and Dustin are kissing Dana White
Conor deserves it more
Hahaha fuckn lying dog faced pony soldier
I Give up. cant figure out technology anymore
Just tap the little giphy icon in the post box and search for your gif that way.
lol that was the first guy to refuse a drink from Conor and the...……..oh wait
Thats why he hit the little oul lad, ptsd kicked in.
Been watching some of the buildup this week and correct me if I'm wrong But I get the feeling that DP is a bit nervous around khabib and I get the feeling that Khabib knows it.
Hope he brings his best cause he has a lot of potential to win and keep winning, needs to make sure he doesn't give khabib too muc respect tho
LOL, I never facking tapped ya cunt! (imagine in irish accent)
Conor deserves it in terms of avenging his loss, as for the belt, he should wait in line.
that being said, I wonder if Conor will still rematch Khabib if Dustin takes the strap.
Khabib feels uber confident since his daddy is in his corner this time.
If there is any type of factor it's how jet lag will effect Khabib's weight cut imo.
Both should have came 2-3 weeks earlier to get acclimatized to the weather (Werdum vs Cain although that was more about elevation)
