Tony put his mind and body through the ringer. Interesting to see how, or if for that matter, he recovers. He took the high risk tough style match up for him and extended his camp and made two weight cuts in a short time at his age with wear and tear levels.  I don’t think Dana was wrong in noticing that.  I thought he looked off, though I’m not taking anything away from Gaethje. He’s a stud and whooped ass. I’m Just sad for Tony. I hope he pulls himself up again like the savage he is.  However, his age and wear and tear....it may be a rough road ahead. Any road that doesn’t lead to a title shot I consider rough for him. I’ll forever be an El CuCuy fan either way.

Let’s say OK he won so fair is fair, Gaethje gets the Champ!


Khabib vs. Gaethje 

Khabib isn’t going to stand in his face & exchange punches like Tony did. Khabib will put him on his @ss over & over until he sub’s him out in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th round. I don’t see Gaethje being any different then any1 else he’s fought b4. Only a punchers chance, imo.

At least Tony had a wicked ground game for Khabib, oh well, guess we’ll never see..
As Swain said above.. always a El CuCuy fan!
