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!
