hahaha what a ******* joke. Goes from supposedly fighting Tony to a title fight back up for his potential first UFC fight....... Chandler must be able to suck a golf ball through a garden hose to be pulling this kind of **** off

Khabib probably sell so much in muslim country and in russia that they change the time sacrificing some north american west coast viewer.

they said UFC 242 did 26 million in russian views alone. If that is the case then yea its a no brainer to accommodate their time.

for what its worth Damien I don't believe it for a minute that he's the back up. Just yesterday the world was convinced he was fighting Tony.

nobody has put forth the possibility of justin winning. then what? we get a tony/justin rematch? i think khabib beats justin but how would tony deserve a rematch? justin put a serious beatdown on tony.

Absolutely nothing about the first fight or the shellacking Justin put on Tony warrants a rematch.

Two weight cuts back to back and it still took Justin four rounds to get it done. Hopefully Tony pulls down his pants and says his balls are hot after his next win. Also khabib the chicken nurmagomedov dodged Tony and let Justin do his work for him. Chicken **** probably planned it that way.

You say that like Tony had been stopped before. Gaethje dismantling him was way more telling than a quick finish.

yeah free, im sure khabib let justin win. tony ****** up by fighting justin instead of waiting for khabib. i can see tony not getting a shot at khabib at all now. if khabib beats justin he has one more fight to make his 30-0 and retires. unless dana can salvage the dustin/tony fight and tony wins, i dont see khabibs last fight being tony.

I wish Tony had never taken the fight, and all I can do is hope UFC pays it forward some day if whoever is champ at the time is scheduled for a bout and their opponent pulls. Or they just fast track him to a title shot.

yeah, i kinda agree i would rather be watching tony/khabib this time. but justin laid out the blueprint for beating tony. stay patient, dont engage in the chaos that tony loves and thrives on and just pick him apart. it might be harder for tony to win fights from now on.
