I still think 165 needs one more main card fight.
Maybe Ryan jimmo vs thiago Silva

Healy needs to score the takedowns because if he doesnt I see a bad night for him

I really like this fight. Pat impressed the shit out of me against Miller, so that really makes this a hard pick. Not sure who im takin but i hope Bam Bam takes this

Good fight here. Khabib doesn't get who he was asking for but he still gets a nice step up in competition. This should be fun.

this is a big fight for both these guys, this will showcase or expose Nurmagomedov and this is the perfect step up for him.

I agree this is match making at is finest.
Nurmagomedov has proven he deserves a step up in competition.
And Healy is coming off a very impressive finish over Jim Miller. A fight where most people had Healy counted out before the fight.

Potential Hot Bout, I'd say.

How come everyone talks shit about GSP and Bendo and the way they fight, but then they love Nurmagomedov?

because Nurmagomedov is awesome, he has finished 14 fights 7 by TKO 7 by Sub, 6 decisions in the UFC he has 2 fights finished 2 decision so im not sure what comparison you are trying to make.

also im not sure anyone is talking shit, personally i have no problem with bendo or GSP grinding out decisions. and even with that i dont think the its right to attack them GSP has more finishes then decisions, and he does try to finish fights it just works out that lately he doesnt.

as far as bendo he also has more finishes then decision. of course his UFC time is another story but its not like he isnt just sitting on people he is working them over with GNP and looking for subs, he also uses his taekwando very well standing.

NONE of those three fighters are boring if anything i find all three ultra exciting.

It's because GSP and Bendo fight like they are scared of being hurt or taking risks.

This is a good fight but bad matchup for Healy imo, who won't get the takedowns due to Khabib's reach and speed.
