Big chance for Tony here. A little bit of a let down for Khabib perhaps but I think this fight could be very good. Tony really shocked everyone against Thomson, he has a lot of momentum going in while Khabib has the long break to return from, I hope he is hungry because Ferguson is intense. Working with Josh could be very helpful in Khabib's prep for this.

I'm scratching my head on this one. I don't see the need to knock off a future contender with this match-up.

Let's hope he doesn't then, unless his comeback is miraculously like Cruz's and he manages to finish an opponent.

This is a sick fight, I just hope we get to see the old Khabib before he left and not a lesser version of himself since the injuries......should be a great scrap if so.

Too bad it's only 3 rounds.

Not doing kabib any favours giving him this fight after being out this long. This is very winnable for ferguson and he showed against Thompson just how dangerous, dynamic and exciting as fuck he is off his back and just about everywhere else too. I don't see why either could not get the shot with a convincing win or a fight with Pettis at least.

I don't see it as this. I see it as a punishment for this..

If Ferguson can stop Khabib from grapple-fucking him then this will be very interesting...Ferguson has looked like an absolute beast in almost all of his win streak and was downright brutal in his most recent win over proven vet Josh

Let's hope the Russian doesn't injure himself again. Ring dust could play a factor in this fight.

Ferguson will need a knockout to win this...this could be a real snorefest if Khabib chooses to keep it on the ground.

Impossible for it to be boring with ferguson off his back. Kabib kept dos anjos there for most of the fight and I thought that was super impressive in itself but I just can't picture him doing it to ferguson for longer than a minute the way he is moving right now. fuck I haven't been high for months and I'm just impressed with everything right now! Especially ferguson off his back... It's like fucken poetry. One thing I will say that may work in kebabs favour is that ferguson sometimes just sometimes seems to go for subs that leave him open to be countered via a sweep or pass, he just moves so fast and is so dynamic as well that it's hard to predict what he will do, but like I was saying kabib could capitalise on those occasional moves that ferguson does that leave him open for a glimpse of a second. Kabib after all does not fuck around on the ground and is very straight forward and efficient not going for much or giving much away.

So yeah I'm pretty high I think that all made relative sense though.
