    Khabib is a goddamn pit bull. He doesn't give an inch. Ferguson has to be next, surely. What a fight that's going to be when/if it's made.

    Barboza vs Felder was a heck of a fight.

    Easy dub for Khabib. I'm with ya on that, can't wait for Khabib/Ferg, that's the real money match.

    He spent like two minutes in a guillotine that he admitted as close to finishing him. I don't know if I would call that "easy".

    He is so fun to watch grapple, though. Just dominant.

    Well I meant apart from like 2 shots and the guillotine, he dominated what felt like the other 95% of the entire fight. Even then, his positioning to minimise the impact of the guillotine was impressive as well. I need to see Khabib maul Tony, it needs to happen.

    Re: UFC 242 September 7th - Nurmagomedov vs. Poirier

    I feel fine saying Khabib was dominant but it was a weird fight - he almost got finished twice. I think, again, his striking has been exposed as a major weak point. He looked awful on the feet for the most part and Dustin just needed to pick his moments better instead of getting over excited. I am fairly convinced, after that viewing, that Tony Ferguson is going to beat Khabib. I don't see Khabib posing any issue on the feet whilst Tony's weird style might actually make Khabib struggle to get entries for TDs. I'm also fairly convinced that if that was Ferguson on the bottom, that choke gets finished. If there's one guy who should be good enough at figuring Khabib out on the ground it is him. I feel for Dustin but he got tired really quickly and I felt that after the 2nd round, his path to victory was gone. I thought Khabib's sub defense in the guillotine was ok but I do feel that Dustin's arms burning out were a major factor in the sub not working (and possibly the humid conditions). Dustin should've tried to transition to a different choke when Khabib was trying to flop out of the guillotine after passing the leg. He had two or three moments he could've but I think he committed fully to the guillotine during Khabib's defending moves and ended up going from a tight guilltoine to a guillotine that's dependent on how strong your arms are. Dustin either had to transition to another choke after the hip shuffle from Khabib or had to draw Khabib into trying to pass his leg as a way to get mount and finish the fight. He didn't do either and paid for it unfortunately.

    I really can't stand Tony or Khabib much outside of the cage as people but I guess I'd root for Tony on the basis that he doesn't support a dictator who's purging gays.

    The rest of the card was pretty enjoyable. Thought Moras/Jojua was pretty shitty but other than that, most fights delivered. Salikhov killed Neymar's bodyguard. Tukhugov was lucky to get away with a draw against Murphy because it was quite embarrassing how he just wanted to smother and do nothing else for most of the fight. Actually find it hilarious considering he was the one who had the scuffle with McGregor yet he was so scared of fighting standing up. Azaitar killed Packalen even more than Salikhov did Taleb. JoJo was the correct winner I think vs Lee. Close fight.

    Taisumov/CDF was a fight. Blaydes had another decent performance and might just get a serious fight next that isn't Ngannou. Makhachev/Davi was a little wild and Barboza/Felder got crazy at points. I'm so pleasantly surprised that Felder won. Congrats to that man.

    Overall, a solid event but I definitely felt the arena's humidity had a bit of an impact on proceedings. Fights still felt fast paced but honestly felt like the potential for gassing arrived so much sooner.


    Cerrone vs Gaethje next
