UFC commentator Joe Rogan posted a clip of Justin Gaethje training getting a training session in with head coach Trevor Wittman. UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov saw the clip, and posted a cold, hard message.

“Justin is a very nice guy and good opponent for me, but when octagon close he have to be ready not only boxing match, I’m not Dustin or Tony. I will take him to the deepest ocean and drown him. Inshallah.”

Inshallah directly translates as "God willing." It expresses the belief that nothing happens unless God wills it and that his will supersedes all human will.

Nurmagomedov defends vs. Gathje in the main event of UFC 254 on October 24, 2020, in TBA.

Khabib was scary before. Now imagine a khabib that has the pain of losing his father pushing him to win. Him and his father has a special connections and khabib is going to make sure he wins this fight in his honor.

Gaethje said he doesn't like to wrestle much in fights because it tires him out.  Well, he's in for a long night.

The issue for Khabib in this fight is that he's going against a good wrestler with heavy hands. He won't be afraid of the takedown .  Gaethje has been in some wars so his cardio is good. If Gaethje lands heavy early Khabib could be in for a long night. Khabib doesn't really shoot in from a distance, he's going to be well in truly in firing range so he could get caught coming in. It's a very interesting fight.

When's the last time Gaejthe utilized a wrestling move in a mma fight?

Gaethje has decent cardio at best.  He gasses in his fights.

Doesn't like offensive wrestling. Defensive wrestling can be a lot more conservative.

I'm expecting this too. Khabib is going to be 100% motivated. Look out!

Khabib hasn’t been in wars like Justin. Justin laughs at the deep waters. He lost to Justin because he isn’t as good of a boxer. 
He won’t gas.  Khabib will gas.
