This is the most intriguing, most talent ridden, most exciting fight not only that can be put on in this day and age, but any day and age of MMA.

 

This is the culmination of years of evolution of our sport. I'm glad we're all here to experience it. (So long as it doesn't fall through. Again.)

Tony vs Khabib is the Super Bowl, the NBA Finals, the World Cup championship of the 155lb division! Except it took us years to get to this point, instead of a single season, so therefore it feels like it’s much more important than any one of those. Atleast 5 years in the making, we’re finally here, and it’s going to be amazing... greatest fight of the decade between the 2 BEST fighters at 155lb. I got Tony.. Tony is the TRUE King of 155lbs imo!

Let me tell you about Tony.

 

This man is the real real. He has supreme cardio as a strength along with grit and durability and has major skills to back them up whether standing or on the ground. The guy is a mental giant. The knee injury he sustained would have made anyone almost retire yet he came back in there and competed at a high level and won!

I have never seen anyone like Tony where they talk shit and back it up. He is the anti-hero. He is going to give khabib some legit problems. Mark my words.

 

He is a cardio machine. With a slick ground game and nasty elbows. He will not let khabib enjoy being on top. Tony will dish and receive punishment like the terminator and make khabib regret taking Tony down. Tony will then tire khabib and beat him at his own game. I believe the gillutine that poirier had Tony would finish it. Tony has lanky arms and legs and a better ground game. Mistakes like this will cost khabib dearly. And also Tony can box for days. Volume punches and kicks tires khabib out. 

 

This is a battle of mental toughness VS skill. With how khabib easily shattered Connors world, this fight could easily end up the same where a Mexican American shit talking agnostic ass kicking fighter anti hero beats khabib and shattered his undefeated record and very existence. Khabib knows Tony is the most dangeous. This man never backs down and always persevers. Tony is like the terminator. 

 

I'm really excited for this fight.

Normally it is so fucking cliche to say "this fight has been years in the making"

 

But here it is absolutely true

What happens if there’s a last minute pull-out? Is it going to remain the most cursed fight ever? I don’t want to get my hopes up

Cro Cop v. Fedor

DC v. Jones

Tony v. Khabib

It belongs on that list. And I'm not sure any other fights do.
