    Um, does he forget that he's 2-2 in the UFC? Seriously?

    Correction, he's 3-2.

    it floors me how these guys get a big win in less than a handful of fights and think they're shot callers.

    Nate was 2-3 in his last 5 when he got his first shot at McGregor.

    I'm a BIG Justin Gaethje fan,seriously how can you not be? There is something Gaethje has been saying in recent interviews that I ten to agree with,and that is that out of everyone in the top 10,Gaethje presents the biggest stylistic problems to Khabib. He's an elite wrestler who can scramble like hell and he can wear Khabib down with his wrestling,take down defense, and scrambles until Khabib is forced to stand on front of him,and Gaethje standing in front of Khabib while he is trying to recover and maybe just had 2 or 3 straight takedowns stuffed is probably the last person in the world Khabib wants to be in front of him. Gaethje will brutalize his legs with leg kicks and throw a tornado whirlwind of pressure and chaos and possibly knock Khabib out. He may be 3-2 but he just knocked out both of his last top level opponents one of them being Barboza,with a new more reserved and smart technical and strategic manner. He's learned to fuse the chaos with fighting smart,and I think Gaethje may be going all the way to the belt. Mark my words.

    But it's also what the rankings look like. Iaquinta is booked. Khabib (should) is fighting Poirier next. Those are the two guys left above him and a spectacular knockout deserves a higher ranked opponent.

    Justin vs winner of that fight makes sense. Winner of that can even get a title shot.

    Great fight, I'm picking Al.
    I've been on the Al bandwagon for a long time.
    Wish he wouldn't have went part time for a while.

    I would LOVE to see that fight. There are very few McGregor fights left I’d be excited for, but that is definitely one of them.
