But he has signed to fight him multiple times so you are definitely wrong

He has already stated that Tony is next in line 100% - forget what that annoying rat said

He's already said that Tony is next and how is he ducking when he's already signed to fight Tony multiple times?

Arenyou aware that ali and khabib are not the same people?

I think Ali is just trying to get the bigger money fight. He's a piece of shit but that's really what he's supposed to do as the manager.

The terrorist snitch is just trying to hype khabib's negotiating position.

Well he is trying to make the most money possible while taking the smallest risk. He thinks GSP will be an easier fight with more money and legacy on the line. 

 

He has to know Tony is his biggest threat and doesn't want to lose the GSP legacy fight and then the Conor rematch money fight.

Can't wait until Khabib dominates tony. Who will be the ug's next savior to beat Khabib after he destroys turd Ferguson?

Yeah ducking tony to fight someone who is infinitely more of a tougher matchup.

A part of me likes it. MMA fans in general might be too far beneath a matchup of this stature.

Bro, Tony the tiger pulled out of their last fight and refused to fight for the interim, hence why Poirier was given the shot.  Neither are afraid of each other but get your facts straight. Khabib is going to 10-8 maul him too, and I want Tony to win.

So scared he wants to take the next 10 months off waiting for a retired welterweight who fought at middleweight to starve himself down to lightweight.

It's all about his legacy bro. He's defended the title 1x. Time to move on to greener pastures.


H'es defended it twice. Conor and Poirer.

I'd be hesitant to say that GSP would be an infinitely tougher match than Tony.

GSP is a great fighter, GOAT IMHO. That said, he's older now, has suffered from ulcerative collitis, never fought below 170, and did his last fight at 185. Cutting to 155, the physical/mental stress of training camp, possibility of a uc flair up....he might show up in poor condition to fight.

Khabib has said he'd only do the fight at 155. He's stacking the deck way in his favor there. I feel GSP is still a better fighter than Khabib (and Tony), much more well rounded than Khabib, but with consideration of the physical toil training camp and cutting could take on him, GSP might show up in such a physical condition where he'd be less of a challenge than TF.

That was when the stakes were much, much lower. There's millions of dollars and career legacies at stake now. Back then, they were just two really good prospects.

That's a fallacy. Losing to GSP (even at 155) does nothing to hurt Khabib's legacy or money-making ability. If he loses, he simply came up short against the GOAT WW.

Now, a loss to Tony derails his career trajectory and erases his GOAT status at LW.

Using that logic, why isn't Khabib fighting for the other half of the championship title. He's not a real champion, just half of one!

Yes, the LW GOAT defended his belt vs 2 Featherweights.

Interesting point actually. Especially for a guy who is already notoriously large for the division.

Saying Khabib is ducking Tony is like saying I pull out of OP's mom before I ejaculate ... it's ludicrous.

Intrestingly, Khabib may do a "duck under" on Tony putting him on his back to smesh
