Both posted ”see you soon” in posts and Khabib wants a quick turnaround and get that (easy) 30-0 record.

Always been a big fan of Chandler but him getting a title shot in the UFC straight away would be pretty laughable IMO

No way in hell Khabib is fighting Chandler.

Chandler just got KOed by a FW two fights ago and is 0-0 in the UFC.

Khabib cares so much about his legacy, he is not doing his 30th fight vs a 0-0 UFC fighter.

If Khabib is going to do a 30th fight then it will be vs either...

a. GSP

b. the Tony/Oliveira winner

or

c. the Conor/Poirier winner

I wouldn't say "no way in hell" just because you never know. But, I agree that it's far more likely to be these three options.

True.

"No way in hell" is just me projecting my bias against the matchup. I'd hate to see that be his 30th fight and can't see him wanting that option.

RDA Felder just happened, Tony Oliveira and Conor Poirier are booked. Its gonna be Chandler vs Geathje/Makhachev/Ferreira.

Chandler will likely fight Justin and Khabib will fight Conor or GSP (or Tony if he wins), he needs a big name for his 30th and likely last fight.

Conor is the LEAST deserving on that list

Chandler needs a win against a top 5 opponent. I'd like to see him fight Gaethje.

Good options for Khabib's last fight:

  1. GSP
  2. McGregor if he beats Poirier
  3. Chandler if he beats Gaethje
  4. Winner of Ferguson vs Oliveira

100% NOT happening. Only fight Khabib comes back for is GSP, or a Mcgregor rematch if he feels Conor deserves it by beating Poirier.

This.  There are like 10 fights better than Chandler.

 

I want to see Triple C fight Khabib over Chandler.  This generation's Fedor vs Shinya Aoki fight.

Jesus Christ you people don't understand that Khabib doesn't do marketing stunts. If he says something, he's the man of his word. It's not just a saying, it's fucking IMPORTANT in his culture. He can't come back after he said he retired.

Nobody said it was a marketing stunt.

Personally I think he will stay retired but it's possible that he comes back (his mother changes her mind, etc).

I like him coming back to fight either Ferguson or Chandler if they win their next fights.

Hate to say it but Conor is still the biggest money fight. Dana and co. will do whatever it takes
