    He fought way better than Dustin, my ground game is so poor a gust of wind could blow me to the ground, Poirer

    Ground game has nothing to do with takedown defence, Poirier is a very competent grappler with submissions.

    Al is a beast. Khabib won’t speak his name cause he knows if Al has a full camp he’s in trouble.

    He got 50-43 ed across the board. Serra and Al are boys so I cant be surprised with some verbiage but let's turn this " blue print" shit down a few decibels.

    Al on point with defense of khabib but Dustin still seemed he had that neck. Khabib is a champion and these little things validate it. I gotta know how poiriers arms felt after bhibster escaped.
    Dustin knew he was in trouble.

    He hasn't submitted anyone since 2013. He's not that great.

    Al has become famous for getting his ass kicked by Khabob <45> and then Cerrone whooped his ass even worse in his last fight

    Well at least he beat Kevin Lee in between when he proved to us he was the SAME AL.

    To be fair, Cerrone is just a bad matchup for Al.

    Lol enough of this Al stuff already.

    Dustin already did better than Al imo.

    Al lasted until the end, but got his ass whooped right the way through. Dustin at least got the neck and showed a chance to win the fight (even though I think Khabib always had that covered).

    If Dustin never went for the sub, I'm sure he would have had more gas to survive longer, like Al.

    Also, maybe Khabib went a bit easy on Al, due to Al stepping in to save the fight.
    It was more like a hard training session for Khabib, rather than a title fight with an opponent he wanted to or needed to destroy.
