It was either during Makhachev or early on in the main event. He said something about Russian fighters having success in their home country and being used to the heat, despite the fact Dagestan is quite temperate.

Abu Dhabi: 105 (heat index 121)
Dagestan: 69

Khabib still has major holes against any fighter that will stand their ground in the center of the Octagon and bang. IMO he bluffs people against the cage with his feints and big power shots but in reality the only fighter he really connected with was Conor. Dustin had success in the stand up but kept getting bullied against the cage. Khabib has to have the cage and is susceptible to straight punches. Tony has wicked jabs, straight punches and elbows, along with his constant pressure and no fear for the takedown its going to be a tall task for Khabib. Tony could submit, elbow or reverse Khabib's positions due to his fighting style. Tony probably can fight the hands better than all of Khabib's opponents, he has the skeletal frame, length and hands of a heavy weight. Khabib never fights in the center of the cage, Tony lives in the center. Its going to be interesting but I will give Tony the slight edge due to the fact he could cut or damage Khabib to win a decision. They are both animals.

Agreed, unless GSP comes flying in, this is hands down the only fight to make.. no clue who takes it but we will find out if habiby bleeds
