    Ariel reported that due to Visa issues, Ali was only able to make it to Jackson's MMA last week. During that week, he also had a confrontation with fellow Russian teammate Rustam Khabilov (who is fighting Ben Henderson next weekend.)

    Anyone else wondering if/how this will affect Ali during the biggest fight of his life?

    He was not beating MM anyway and that certainely wont help.

    Wonder if that confrontation with Rustam is related to that story of him being kicked out of the sambo federation because of that failed drug test.

    He will still get two solid weeks of sparring with Dodson, helping him prep for MM speed and athleticism.. The confrontation, well if you came into my gym and you got popped for a dirty in your past, not only I, but also a few of the other guys are gonna check that mindset on you before you get comfy and start calling our gym, your camp. We don't allow our brothers to fall victim to that bs! Gotta not only respect your training partners, but you have to have a sense of trust toward them too.

    I think it depends on how he reacts when the going gets tough,does he mentally break or does he get motivated?

    Well I'm sure he was still preparing, just with his fight nights team in Russia. Not like he was sitting around and eating dorritos.

    I can say for a fact that Ali was sitting around eating Doritos.
