I put $50 down on Tony as a 200 underdog.

“I’m going to put him on his back, I’m going to take him down. You think he’s been preparing any rubber guard? I hope so, but I don’t think so. He’s got no flexibility, his right knee is a bum knee,” Ferguson said. “His conditioning is weak and his body, he’s really had a lot of problems with his weight cut. So where do you think I’m going to go with my punches? There’s no secret, I’m going to punish his body. Then I’m going to go upstairs, I’m going to take him down, I’m going to go knee-on-belly, I’m going to put my hand on his throat and I’m going to hold my hand up like a [expletive] wolverine claw and I’m going to tell him to [expletive] quit.”

It is. He will treat him worse than he did RDA and it will not go five rounds. The commentary will be begging the ref to stop the fight.

There are too many variables at play here for me to use a word like destroy to describe how either guy could win.

I think I'm gonna put money on Tony. Have to watch more of their fights but Khabib has never gone past three rounds, Tony is a legit wrestler and has insane cardio, and has the better standup. Khabib is great at what he does, but people talking about him hanging with DC in the wrestling room is a bit much in the hype department for me.

Sometimes people have a hard time understanding how big these guys actually are. That pic circulating earlier this week where Holloway looked bigger than DC being a good example of that. Also lol man who needs hype department when you have VIDEO





Do you see how big this guy is compared to DC? They're like the same size.

On top of that, Tony was taken down multiple times by Abel Trujillo and Danny Castillo, so I have no qualms with my pick. There is no defending what Khabib can do. Tony's standup is really good but so is Barboza's and that dude was getting fucked up by Khabib. If MJ couldn't blast Khabib out of there and keep him at range then Tony sure won't.

If anything people aren't hyping up Khabib enough considering the variety of styles in this sport and that he's still undefeated after getting in there 25 times. It's practically impossible too, plus he beat a champ prior to their becoming a champ and before they claimed that weight issues were ruining their body.

He's a better striker than Tony and he's huge. I'm gonna put down $50 on him. These short notice fights are dangerous as fuck for the guy who was training to face someone else.

Wait I thought Max had to pull out of a fight not too long ago due to injury? I thought Conor said he would step up if either guy pulled up and oh wait he's silent ever since this announcement happened. God damn and I just noticed 221, 222, and 223's original main events have all been cancelled. Tremondous.

I think Max was not that hurt and that dude walks around really big. More than that he hasn't been taken down in AGES and is a better distance striker than Tony, can give out  that punishment without being hit. I'm so hyped because skill wise this is a better version than what we were gonna get.

Holloway is at +330, so if you have a good feeling about that fight, that's a great line to see.

I put $150 down on Max at +375. I think I might be cashing in. You can’t stay undefeated forever.

If Max can't beat him nobody can. He is the best defensive fighter in the UFC, I can never underestimate his defensive movement. Hasn't been taken down since 2014 and we all know he's hard to hit. The gangster attitude is some shit I'm never able to look past when these short notice matchups against beasts go down. Look at what TJ did to Barao man, THIS IS HOW LEGENDS ARE MADE

Max is gonna follow the Yoel and Ortega path of stepping in on short notice and destroying his opponent?

Honestly, if it was anyone but Max, I wouldn’t consider it. But we’ve seen how “short notice” fights end for the guy who was booked ends (upset losses), followed by Max not being the type of opponent to take a fight for money. He has been talking about building his legacy for a long time, has been on one of the biggest tears in MMA history and has the tools to stop Khabib.

Same shape Nate was in when they pulled him off the boat to go fight Conor.

George Lockheart is helping Max with his cut and said that this is going to be the most challenging cut he's supervised as a nutritionist......along with the time he's helped Khabib.

So that makes me feel good about things.

If Max pulls this off, I’ll be a #Blessed fan for life. But if he comes in out of shape BJ Penn shape, I’ll pray for Ortega to pop his head off.

Those seem like kinda unfair conditions to impose on a guy winning considering he's moving up in weight while at the same time having to do a brutal cut while still hurt to face a guy nobody wants to fight.

The angle of how far he's got the UFC bent over is about to be tested. Cause he should 100% be arrested for this and if Chiesa can't make the fight on Saturday because of the cuts he sustained he should 100% sue Conor.

Lobov is off the card on Saturday, per Dana. I imagine he was involved in Conor's insanity somehow.

Also the NYPD has issued a warrant for Conor's arrest.

I'll say it again.  I find it ironic that all of a sudden Dana is the concerned parent.  Sooner or later, it was going to lead to something like this because Conor was essentially treated as untouchable.
