    Wouldn’t be the first time it happened to an American Boxer. I just learned this week that exact thing happened to Ray Mercer.


    Those organizations want exciting fighters like Alvarez. They don’t want humpers like Kebab. Otherwise, they would have paid Askren to stay over there and fight.

    Guys Floyd is not fighting at RIZIN.

    The language barrier confused people as Rizin people were trying to communicate with "Floyd language" - aka money. Just turns out Floyd thought he'd make much more than they were actually willing to pay him.

    Of course Khabib can and would jump ship. Do you think he was bluffing Dana?

    What would Dana and the UFC do to Khabib if he rips up their bullshit contract and fight for Rizin in Japan or go box with Floyd?

    Humper like Khabib?

    He wrecked the UFC posterboy, Conor, and took his soul. 27-0 undefeated #1 LW in the world.

    If Rizin or ONE FC have Khabib, they have the UFC's LW division by the balls.

    Hey come on man, it was more like 20.


    And I guess this is mainly to bring major exposure to Rizin. Seems like it could be a gamble, but Floyd's last freakshow fight did stupidly well it seems, so

    Yeah, humper. I said it. Again, those organizations don’t want someone like Khabib, and Khabib doesn’t want them, because he’s looking for money fights now. He caught the green fever.

    Well, your opinion of Khabib does not matter. The only thing that matters is that 2.4 millions + MMA fans saw Khabib utterly destroyed Conor, and that he's the #1 undefeated UFC LW champion.

    If a competitor to the UFC, such as Rizin, has Khabib, they can say that they have the best, undisputed #1 LW fighter in the world "who destroyed Conor McGregor."

    Also, what makes you think Khabib can't make money in Rizin or boxing with Floyd? Isn't that the money fight his manager is looking for?

    Perhaps Dana and WME couldn't find the right match-up, or weren't willing to compromise on the rules, or didn't feel that much outlay for a Floyd appearance would be profitable, and would set a poor and unsustainable precedent for the regular UFC talent.

    If this venture doesn't bankrupt Rizin, I'll be surprised. This is what every MMA startup does, making a big splash, but then they run out of money and fold, while the UFC makes comparatively smart, sustainable business decisions, to maintain and sustain their business.

    The UFC doesn't need Floyd to be relevant or stay afloat. Rizin does, but it will probably kill them in the process too.

    Given the news about Floyd now not fighting, this all seems entirely not true

    It would prevent Khabib from fighting in the USA ever again, or at a minimum for many years.

    Floyd only fights in Nevada, so that is off the table. Not that its a very real possibility anyhow.

    He can't make the type of PPV money in Japan he's going to get with the UFC, and the money in Japan would not be guaranteed.

    Just because those people watched him beat Conor, doesn’t mean they’re gonna come back to watch him.

    Again, you overestimate the draw of Khabib.

    You're probably still mad for betting on Conor against Floyd.

    Wait... When did this happen to Ray Mercer? i was under the impression he knew it was a kickboxing match. I'm assuming this is in regards to Remy Bonjasky?

    Yes he was bluffing if he attempted to fight for another promotion he'd be sued as well as the promoter.

    Khabib is under contract until he finishes out the fights and being a champion gives the UFC even more leverage khabib has no leverage here at all.
