Khabib vs Cerrone
Khabib vs Donald Cerrone will be a fun fight to watch as Cerrone is a killer. Cerrone on a nice three win streak beating “Raging” Al Iaquinta. Top 5 opponent.
“My name’s in the hat for [Nurmagomedov or Poirier] for sure if one of them fall out. But like I said, I left here [ranked No. 2 at lightweight] and I didn’t go anywhere,” Cerrone said. “So people ask me where should I be ranked, I don’t care about ranking. I should beat these guys, I feel like I’m the best in the world. I feel like that’s where I belong and for the UFC not to give me a title shot, I would step back and I would be thoroughly disappointed. Like, wow, a guy who’s done all this for the sport, I don’t trash talk, I go in there and I deliver every time and you’re going to overlook me for somebody else. I’d be really upset like, wow, that’s the company work for?
Khabib vs George St Pierre
“He said he wants to fight Sept. 7, and again in December. And if Georges St-Pierre can figure things out with the UFC by April, that’s the deal. He would like that fight in April.”
Khabib vs GSP is a dream fight. Watch Khabib fight GSP arguably the greatest mma fighter of all time. See how good Khabib truly is. Hope this fight really happens. Without will be a box office success.
Khabib vs Justin Gaethje
Khabib vs Justin Gaethje isn’t a easy fight for Khabib. Justin has a high motor and a NCAA All American Wrestler. Justin enters that Octagon to put on a war for the fans and kill. This is a incredibly tough fight for Khabib I don’t know what the end result will be. Khabib can lose against Justin!!
“My ability to stop takedowns (would make me a bad matchup),” Gaethje said. “I am a Division 1 wrestler. I was a Division 1 All-American, I placed seventh in 2010 and my ability to scramble and avoid takedowns is something he’s never faced. And the power. He’s faced the power, but never with the ability to stop takedowns and scramble. The combination of the two.
