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.
