dos Anjos: I'm going to shut [Khabib] up


Khabib Nurmagomedov has been making a lot of news lately with his Twitter, claiming that nobody wants to fight him. A couple UFC lightweights offered to fight him, but in the end the UFC matched him up with Rafael dos Anjos, who is hoping to shut up all the talk:

He also pointed out that he wasn't a fan of a shirt Nurmagomedov wore before his bout with Thiago Tavares last year in Brazil that said "If Sambo was easy it would be called Jiu Jitsu":

"You can wait for me coming too prepared and I definitely will bring this win. I'm going to make Khabib stop this talking of nobody wanting to fight him because he is a guy who is talking a lot. I'm going to shut him up so he can learn to not bad talk jiu-jitsu and I'm going to make him throw that shirt in the garbage".

Has Khabib actually said anything (other than wearing that funny as fuck shirt)?Or is he just replying to Dana's promotional quips?

Just placed a bet on this fight in Vegas. If either fighters wins or loses then then I don't win anything...

This!!!! He knows what's going down. I'm going to take it one step further though and say it will defo end in a decision, or a submission or a tko/ko..... Although a injury wouldn't surprise me.

This water I'm about to drink should be refreshing, unless it's piss.

I predict Khabib will take him.However, if Dos Anjos fights better that night then I think Dos Anjos will win.

Either guy can win this, will be a good fight, but my $ is on Khabib. The guy's just too good and we clearly haven't even seen his best yet. I really wish the fight with Gil had come through though. That woulda been badass.
