Khabib bih ass went back to Russia and ducked tony... that’s how I see it.
Who knows. Supposedly he was told the fight would be in Abu Dhabi, so he decided to go train there.
Tony stayed here. I'm not sure why he thought he had to do there a month early.
Honestly I'm not even very disappointed. I knew the fight wasn't gonna happen. I didn't wanna see it in some lame no audience room anyway.
This is the fight that shoulda happened anyway. Gaethje vs Ferguson and winner fights Khabib.
Fight was supposed to take place in UAE. Khabib and his team flew there a month before the fight: March 19/20 time frame. They were told that borders were closed and forced to fly back to Dagestan. Borders are closed everywhere just like in USA.
Tony can try to spin it how he wants to, fight wasn't going to happen in UAE no matter what. Don't think anybody was "ducking" anyone but someone who has no idea about mma might disagree....
How ****** though if Ferguson loses. He's deserved this shot for so damn long. That said, I'm a Gaethje fanboy so I'd be rooting for him regardless if that's the fight that happens. I've always wanted to see Gaethje Khabib anyway.
zero reason for Tony to take that fight. None whatsoever ever. Literally taking his championship stock and potentially throwing it away. Not a chance.
And they can’t go the interim title route either... cuz literally he already is and stripped.
fighters fight man no reason for Conor to take on Diaz the first time when he lost but he still did....
That fight had no title fight implications for Connor and was just a $ grab for all parties.
You being fake news bra?
Nate Diaz shook up the world. The longtime UFC veteran stepped into the most monumental fight of his career, when he took a short-notice headliner against Conor McGregor at UFC 196. Originally, McGregor was supposed to face then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos
