While struggling to find an opponent, "The Eagle" rejects an invitation from Johnson saying "I'll wait for you at the top."

Cant say I disagree. Johnson is a few fights removed from losing to Madadi

Weird, sometimes I wish fighters would just leave the match making to Joe Silva.

On Fox Sports 2 before the weigh-ins today Karen Bryant asked Gil Melendez what was next and Melendez said he planned on fighting around mid year. She asked against who? Melendez said the fans want him and Khabib to throw down and that they need to make the fans happy.

What are you high again?

Seriously though, who would you guys match Khabib up against?

The guy's having trouble finding an opponent, and as soon as someone who's actually available and wants the fight steps up and accepts it, Khabib turns it down?

I guess he's learning from Gil and Diaz, although Gil has every reason not to fight Khabib. I don't know what makes Khabib think he's too good to fight Johnson.

Johnson would be a perfect fight to warm Khabib up for Gil. Let's see it happen!

Tell him to sign a bout agreement or cut him. Sick of this garbage diva crap and Fight Pass is bullshit.

As uncool as it is to dismiss another fighter's challenge and look for more profitable matches, Khabib does have a point. He's entirely undefeated in his career and 5-0 in the UFC while Johnson is just two wins removed from a two loss streak. Simply from a merit perspective, Nurmagomedov should be one win (or two at at the most) away from a title shot, and Michael is much farther down in the pecking order.

I, for one, respect fighters who aren't afraid to tell it like it is and not pass that off to their agents/managers.
