Justin Gaejthe is actually a nightmare match up for Khabib.

It's alright. Nothing that great. Should have led with Justin then finished with Khabib, imo.

As much as I want this fight to be fireworks, I feel like its gonna look like GSP vs Nick Diaz.  A lot of control with nothing really happening for 25 min.

Can't wait to see Justin put bone on bone. He's going to hurt Khabib.

There was a lot happening if you understand the art/science of BJJ and folk wrestling. If you don't...then it probably looked like a bunch of guys rolling around on the mat.

Justin has nowhere near the guard of Diaz. It won't look anything like that.

I often refer my grappling students to study that match. So much good defensive BJJ happening and the greatest utilization of folk wrestling to combat BJJ, I've ever seen.

Kahbib will make this look easy.

Then people will talk about Conor again and how he gave Kahbib the most difficult fight.

That was a good BJJ fighter getting completely dominated by a higher level MMA grappler, if you didnt see that skill, just go watch prison fights

It was a grappling clinic by GSP

Don't jinx it, GayChi will defend all 20 takedown attempt and test that chin in a standup war.

Wrestling is boring. That's why they want to cut it from the Olympics (I wrestled in high school for 4 years, it's still fucking boring)
