    Brown should get Lawler-Ellenberger or Lombard next. Maybe the winner of this fight should face Tarec Saffiedine next?

    I'd never heard of him but saw he beat Paul Daley so he must be legit. Sounds like team mates hyping each other though.

    Khabib and Rustam should be worried about Rashid Magomedov, who beat Yakovlev, Zavurov and Enomoto, who are basically the three big dog WW's in M1, and by extension the three best WW's fighting in Russia.

    Rashid, Khabib & Rustam are managed by Red Fury, it'd be weird to see how things would go if they are to ever fight one another.

    How is he training with Khabib and Rustam if Khabib is in Dagestan and Rustam is in Albuquerque?

    I know Rustam used to train under Khabib's father but that was many years ago.

    Both Khabib and Rustam train in the states (AKA and Jackson's respectively) and at Dagestan. It wouldn't surprise me if Khabib and Khabilov train together a lot at Dagestan. However, Yakovlev doesn't seem to train at Dagestan or at Jackson's/AKA, not sure where he would train with Khabib and Rustam.

    Khabib's father was khabib's and Rustam's sambo coach since they were little. I am pretty sure they still train together in Dagestan.

    Khabib lives in Dagestan and only comes to the U.S for the last few weeks prior to his fights. Khabilov, on the other hand, trains at Jackson's full-time.
