Dont sleep on Michael Johnson. He has the perfect style to beat Khabib with good wrestling and fast powerful hands. If he can stay on the outside, keep circling and not back up straight while countering Khabib he definitely stands a good chance.

Hope he does it! I dont like Khabib at all.

Agreed. Johnson is building a career on spoiling.

Khabib will definitely be the best fighter Johnson has ever faced, I think Khabib wins by decision.
