    What do you think this means? Khabib vs Conor? No way right? they wouldn't fuck Tony over like that would they?

    Khabib vs Ferg.

    Conor wants no part of Khabib.

    Conor wants no part of anything that's not hookers or blow.

    man i fucking hope so big time. this would be one of those fights that would answer a lot of questions and establish one of these dudes as the god they are.

    my question stems from tony saying he's being overlooked (noticed that in a comment on reddit) and con or has been posting pics of himself training. so i wonder...

    EDIT: heres the post

    but an injury could explain it.

    I would be impressed if Nurmagomedov could make it to 2 fights in a row

    If the UFC overlooked Tony (interim champ) and made Khabib vs Conor first, it would be a fucking joke.


    I dont really see the incentive for the UFC to give Khabib the first shot over Tony unless it had something to do with the logistics of the event it would happen at (eg. in Russia).

    I gotta say, I think Khabib can beat either of them. i can't believe I'm saying that, but that's what I think

    it would be incredibly fucked up, and wrong, and it would also not surprise most people.

    also let's not forget either rogan or dana claiming conor said he wants khabib, in russia......

    seems pretty plausible

    No one wants to fight Khabib. Tony doesn't. I rewatched the Kevin Lee fight and two things stuck out to me...

    Tonys awful striking defense. Conor lights him up something fierce.

    And how Kevin was able to take him down a multiple times. Khabib takes him down and makes paste out of him.

    I really enjoy TFerg but his 2 biggest flaws are the two top guys strengths. If Khabib can stay healthy he wins the title this year.

    I agree, but I think Tony's chin can hold up against Conor, allowing him to counter punch. That would be a great fight, and the one we're being robbed of the most.

    After watching nurmagomedov beat barboza and johnson I think the guys that were leery of him are now legit concerned.

    I think you're right that nobody wants to fight him. Especially the way he beat barboza

    he's brutal. i mean he doesn't just win, he destroys. yes I know he has 9 decisions but he also has 16 finishes in his career and when he subs or KO's someone it just seems fucking violent. more so than other fights. maybe it's just me, or the last couple

    I think Tony could beat Conor. but @Sakara=Excitement made a really good point about his defense

    The one thing that scares me when fighters rely on their chin holding up. even if a strong crack doesn't take you down, it saps cardio out each time and even if it doesn't knock you out it really affects people down the stretch.

    whatever the case I want to see that fight. unfortunately as for the fight itself I'd rather watch Conor vs Khabib. But I think Tony absolutely deserves it. For Christ's sake he's the real belt holder right now.

    to be fair those two should fight and conor take the winner. but this isn't about being fair now.

    I think Conor picks Tony apart and I think Khabib smashes both of them.

    In a perfect world, on the same card, we would get Conor vs Tony and Nate vs Khabib #1 contenders. Thats a 1.5 million card.

    I could see them matching Knobby up with Conor.
    It would bring Conor back down to earth a little to be dominated on the mat for 5 rounds.

    Then maybe Conor won't play the big shot in negotiations. They could still get some big fights outta him, but it won't ever be against Knobby again.

    We can all hope.

    As much shit as he catches, rightfully so, he's still exciting to watch (in my opinion).

    The scary thing about the beatings Khabib throws down, I'd rather just be subbed in the first, put me out of my misery. He just fist fucks guys. His striking is a tad bit sloppy but his wrestling more than makes up for it.
