He knows Barboza would tear that ass up worse than that tiramisu

Honestly I'm tired of his BS. He & his managers need to stop complaining & fight. Either that or retire & have all the tiramisu you can handle.

I'm a really big Khabib fan but this past year has been discouraging.

That's fine. He fights or fades into obscurity. He's only hurting himself.

Khabib has only faught twice in the last 3 years. He shouldn't be turning down a quality fight like this.

He can't be trusted to make weight right now so he's not getting a title shot anytime soon.

Khabib was at one time a great fighter. Somewhere along the way he lost his fighter spirit though. Maybe he's just not interested in the sport anymore. Regardless of the reason, it's getting pretty lame watching him pullout of and turn down fights as of late.

Doesn't take fight offers.

Doesn't fight in the summer for religious shit.

Gets injured a lot.

Khabib's manager should inform him of how quickly a fighters stock drops in MMA.

Agree with others, Kabib can't be rurning down any fight. He overplayed his hand calling out fighters than no showing for fight.

Same old song, just a drop of water
In an endless sea
All we do crumbles to the ground
Though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind...

Barboza is my favorite LW in the world. That said, I don't think he could stop the takedowns.

CRE - I want Khabib vs. Aldo @ 155 lbs.

Yeah I'd love to see that too. I think Aldo's speed gives him a chance but I'm not sure if he's use leg kicks and expose himself to takedowns. Would his great TDD work against a bigger guy like Khabib?

Very interesting match up.

It's funny how people were genuinely angry that Khabib wasn't given a title shot not that long ago. 

Who has he really beaten to deserve a title shot? RDA is his best win and that was years ago. Tibau got the better of him in their fight but didn't get the nod. That was years ago too but it meant that Khabib kept his 0 and its that 0 that had him and a lot of other people believing he should be the champ.

Don't get me wrong, I look forward to Khabib's fights when he actually fights but it's way too inconsistent for him to think he's entitled to a shot at the belt right now. If he had've beaten Tony back in Mar, fair enough but I don't think he'd be a good champion.

The undefeated record is a hugh selling point.

He isn't even Top 10 right now in a realistic rankings, a win over Johnson and Horcher is the past how many years? He doesn't deserve Barboza. About time he got let go, not like he's ever gonna be a draw anyway
