Khabib, Split Decision  

I know Justin is a D1 all american, so I think as the fight goes on he'll get a couple of rounds in, but Khabib is ************* Khabib. I'm probably gonna be wrong though.

@pie Tony Ferguson has been really vocal about fighting on this card for the right to fight the winner of khabib Gaethje. He said he wants McGregor or poirer.

I will be extremely surprised, because I don't expect Gaethje's strategy to be anything other than "please don't take me down, because I can't get back up once I've been taken down".

Khabib has crushed every opponent that thought they could defend against his constant pressure.  I don't see this fight with Gaethje being any different.

Every time Khabib has ever fought I have always said he will smash his opponent but Gaethje is the one.
