As good as Tibau's TDD is, his striking is essentially its antithesis.. I'm simply saying that Khabib should have outstruck Tibau, and that fight showed that a fighter who can keep the fight standing long enough and has some standup ability will be able to beat him.

How about a free card? I mean there's probably going to be one between now and the next PPV main card (in April). Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Nate Diaz seems like a solid free TV headliner.

So you don't think khabibs striking has improved since the tibau fight? I would be willing to venture it has, considering he has been training at aka. Not to mention, he went on to KO Tavares and outstruck Healy.
