Is that poster insinuating khabib vs poirer. Even though  poirer made me a believer in that Holloway beat down.
I still think it's Tony vs khabib all day long. Anything else is silly.

dustin beats up a feather weight to earn the title shot. ok, whatever. people who think dustin's striking is so much better than khabibs are prolly the same people who thought the same thing about conor. kahbibs striking is way better than he gets credit for.

when you add in the constant threat of the take down as part of the striking, which it is, that makes his striking very good. ask conor.

Poirier is 100% a better striker than Khabib. He has some of the best boxing in all of MMA.
Ask Conor??? Who gives a **** about Conor??? The more time passes the more it becomes clear that he has turned into a joke so beating an deluded addict whiskey salesman isn't that much of an achievement! Even them Khabib hugged his crotch all night and he never dropped him! 
I hope Dustin KTFO's Khabib because his fans are becoming worse than McGregors!  I'll only be sad that it isn't Ferguson who gets to end him!

its mma and of course anyone can win on any given night. but i just dont see dustin beating khabib. the point i was making is that lots of people were saying conor was going to light khabib up on the feet and that didnt happen. i agree that conor is nothing now but a cokehead whiskey drunk and imo never wins another ufc fight. imo kahbib will maul dustin just like he has everyone else. dustin doesnt have one punch ko power and if khabib gets in trouble standing he'll just take him down.

and for the record i'll say that i think tony has the best chance to beat khabib because of his guard game.
