    Khabib isn't going to be stripped or vacated in the new two months unless Khabib goes through the actual process of taking himself out of the testing pool.

    Dana White in the UFC 254 Post Conference said He believes Khabib is done, but then quickly said Give khabib some time to heal, emotionally heal and they would go from there.



    This is why ali said its not vacant yet. What are your thoughts? When will Khabib leave the testing pool?

    I think hes gone for real but I really hope not. Only 32 years old, at the peak of his ability and star power, only like 3-4 more good wins away from being Mt Rushmore level. Sad to see him go this early.

    No they won't lol. Conor will fight for the belt and do over 1 mil ppv and all will be forgotten. Khamzat will then take all of khabib followers and he will be forgotten even further by an actual active champ who puts on exciting fights

    You can't retire AND keep the belt


    So, if there is no vacant belt, it means Khabib is still officially active.

    I can see Khabib delaying his official retirement until after the conor poirer fight, just to deny Conor a chance to fight for the belt.

    I think he is too, but I think the UFC is going to convince him to take his time and Ali will put the bug in his ear to let time pass, go spend time with your mom then come back to us in late dec, january with a decision. If he takes his name out of the testing pool quick, then ufc shit out of luck lol. I think they want to keep him happy. I think the p4p ranking was part gesture, partly because he deserves it.

    Lol that would be hilarious. The only way I see khabib comes back if A) his mother gives the blessing and B) if Islam makhachev doesn't live up to the hopes they have for him and he wants to go for 30-0.

    The best thing for Khabib to do is:

    -Vacate the title

    -Wait max 3 years for a possible new dominant force who dominates the LW division whom he has never faced before

    -If within the next 3 years the division is still being dominated by the same guys whom he already faced, then he should not come back

    If Conor wins against Dustin Khabib will postpone his retirement, if Dustin wins he'll stays retired. It is the most plausible scenario because we know that one guy isn't going to defend his belt and let the division stagnates.

    Power play. Conor wins belt then Khabib returns for super fight.

    i hope khabib actually stays retired.

    it will be more impressive and noble if he did that rather then do a conor and retire after every second fight.

    Makhachev needs to be knocked out stiff so khabib doesnt feel like he's blocking his rise and come back
