    Cliffs:
    • Before injury that pulled him out of Khabib fight, Tony was drinking regularly
    • Eddie Bravo explains how the mindset of Khabib's opponents getting taken down and mauled is "this is worse than I imagined"
    • The gameplan was/is to fight Khabib off his back and not try to get back up

    Ferguson has a much better chance against khabib than Conor for sure.

    That is THE fight to make at LW.

    Both guys on insane win streaks, and both guys are absolute beasts.

    Drinking regularly while on a 10 fight win streak, imagine what he's like off the booze.

    Tony's style might be the closest to the drunken Kung Fu master in the UFC. That means it could get worse with booze.

    Drinking regularly? I listened to this podcast and recall Eddie saying he had a drink once in a while. Are you sure? I certainly don't remember that.

    Khabib couldn't even finish Barboza or IaQuinta and somehow he's some scary killer on here.

    Khabib has pillow fists. Calm down.

    Pettis is a tough matchup for Tony. Especially coming off a serious injury. Pettis has that "I dont give a shit" mentality and at this point in his career, that's dangerous.

    Seriously. Where does this idea come from that Khabib is some big finisher? He isnt. Even in his beatdown fights the guys arent even that hurt. Just worn out. To see a LW who used to bloody massacre guys on the ground, look at BJ Penn. He would GNP guys till their faces were pulp.

    "Drinking regularly" is a bit of a creative license.

    Wild striker with sub skills vs. wild striker with sub skills. Should be an entertaining fight as long as it lasts.
