Who will complain about Khabib vs Justin

Report: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Justin Gaethje targeted for UFC 253
https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2020/6/9/21 ... ight-title

The highly anticipated lightweight title unification bout between reigning 155-pound champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and newly-crowned interim titleholder Justin Gaethje is expected to headline UFC 253 on September 19, according to a report from Brazilian MMA outlet Combate.

Nurmagomedov is undefeated after twenty eight professional fights and is en route to becoming the greatest lightweight champion in UFC history and is already considered one of the best fighters to have ever graced the sport. The feared Dagestani last fought at UFC 242 where he disposed of Dustin Poirier via third-round submission, successfully unifying the lightweight titles and cementing himself as the No. 2-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

Gaethje, 31, has stormed through the lightweight rankings after rattling off four straight stoppage wins over James Vick, Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone, and Tony Ferguson. ‘The Highlight’ finished all but one of those opponents (Ferguson) via first-round KO and is widely considered one of the most dangerous fighters in the lightweight division.

Khabib vs. Gaethje hasn’t been confirmed, but expect an official announcement in the coming days.


Will this stop all the complaining?????????

Connie is. Its the root of 3rd drama queen fake retirement to date.

He of course could fight a contender at 155 in the mean time. Someone like the winner of Hooker vs Poirer or Felder or Oliveria.

Or he could just whine and complain about Gatheje and Khabib getting booked and fake retire over it.

That would be crazy! Standing up he kills khabib imo and obviously the takedown defense is crucial.

But Justin on his back? Idk lol

Conor McGregor deserves the rematch. He earned it.

I think Justin will get tired due to all the wrasslin Khabib will put out. It’s the only way Khabib will win and Gaethje stays away from the wrasslin because he is a savage and mostly because it’s tiring as hell.

Yeah, I don’t think anyone can deal with Khabib’s wrasslin. I can’t see Khabib wanting to strike with Gaethje either. I see Khabib wearing him out with the wrasslin and a late round sub. Who knows? Haha

I think it will go either Khabib plays it safe looking for a decision win or Justin finished em via KO/TKO.

Good fight & well deserved for Justin.

Going to be interesting, i doubt Khabib wants any of that stand up and he doesn't want to prove a point VS Justin so i guess he will shoot from quite far.

Have not watched any of dustins wrestling or slams but he has been focusing on striking for years, he won't be the same as before.

Wonder if he will be able to keep it in the middle as he said he could/would talking to rogan.

Mad respect for Justin but i wanted Tony to be the one who dethrones Khabib.

Gonna root for the Eagle in this one evetho i believe Gaetje has a good chance against him.
