If it were anyone else I wouldn’t believe it. But Khabib hangs out with billionaires and is a national hero.

Isn’t Nurmagomedov a Central Asian Muslim? Seems like an unlikely alliance with Putin.

Wouldn't believe it? Why the change of heart? You usually believe people who hang with billionaires and think they're national heroes.

Juiced up Bader is cool.

Fedor is still insanely fast.

Chael Sonnen is a meme.

I can’t recall any big fights recently going how they’re “supposed to” outside of DC/Lewis maybe. So while I’m tempted to say “Holloway by cardio” or “”Ortega by BJJ mastery” it’ll end up being an Ortega knockout or something lol

Holloway is something special. doesn’t get tired, crazy boxing. Just a savage.

I’d like to see him avenge his loss to McGregor. Idc the weight class.

I think Holloway vs Ferguson could be one for the ages. However, Ferguson should get a crack at Khabib first. But who knows when Khabib will be back.

I wonder if Ortega will ever be the same. That fight is a good example why I'm conflicted about combat sports.
