Nah, now that Gaethje learned patience and timing he’s a new animal. Still absolutely savage but calculated..scary. I’m excited to see him scrap Khabib.

@peace you're right IMO. Justin isn't going to have anything for khabib. Tony is a much more dangerous fight for him.

Hard to push the pace when every time you do you eat a shot that would put a normal human being out.

He should have been KO'ed about 8 times in that bout....it was ******* incredible.

I agree Tony is a tougher match up for Khabib but there is hope. Now he has the patience his gas tank is improving. Maybe he can avoid being smothered.  But yea, I’m still picking Khabib.

This card brought a lot of emotions out of me. Great performance by Justin. Holy crap I feel devastated for Tony. Henry being Henry. A lot of cool knockouts and questionable decisions. What a way for the UFC to come back.

Yeah the lack of pressure is what really surprised me tonight.  I knew Justin could piece him up without massive pressure and it just wasn't there for whatever reason.

Anyone who thinks Gatchje doesn’t have a chance against Khabib is STUPID!! This is MMA, and Justin CAN wrestle also.. and he has one of the BEST teams in the spotter imo with Whitman at the helm.. he will have justin ready for SURE!! And Justin will have NOTHING to lose really

I'm sad though. Tony always delivered and took a super dangerous fight, it cost him the title. If only every top ranked fighter had his heart and will.

Conor Mcgregor is comparatively a ******* disgrace. I hope they make him fight Tony.

Tony may never be the same after that. I don't want to overreact or be a drama queen but jeez he took at least 50 clean hard left hooks and overhands. Also the head shaking, blinking always freaks me out, after Gerald McLellan. Tony is 37 and even though beating up all his opponents he has taken shots.
I love Gaethje but I can't help but feel for Ferguson. 1 of the greatest win streak in UFC history and doesn't get to be UFC Champion. Thats rough

Ehh maybe but Gaethje is a better wrestler than DP but not as submission savvy. But I been saying Tony was toughest match up for Khabib for years. You tell me nothing I don’t know. I think Gaethje beats DP now.

We missed out on Fedor vs Couture, missed out on GSP vs Silva, now we have to miss out on Tony vs khabib...

**** Ali abdela****...

Tony work so hard for this and risk it all again Gaethje. Its very sad that it didin't go well.

I think Gaethje will have wait for khabib at is place. I'm certain  Khabib, Mcnugget, Diaz would all have wait and not take Gaethje as a replacement.
