    Media scrum from Dana, summary

    - Talks about Cyborg and her issues
    - He said Tony wont sign to fight Khabib as usual, wants more money
    - He hasnt spoken to Conor, but says Conor will fight anyone
    - Khabib is looked at as "the guy" at 155lbs
    - Jose Aldo wants to fight Khabib for 155lb Belt (where the winner would fight Conor)
    - Conor may not fight for 10months+
    - Dana says people would be surprised at how many people duck fights when he calls them and offers them a fight
    - and more

    He meant amongst the division. In the view of the other fighters... which is why Aldo wants to mainly fight Khabib instead of Conor

    Yes make Aldo vs Khabib. Let Aldo finally do something to prove his worth instead of crying all the time.

    no respect to you TS, just making a general comment

    but it becomes harder and harder for me to listen to anything dana says, knowing full well that his job is basically getting paid millions of dollars to lie out his ass

    Yes, exactly. Compare Tony Ferguson's record to Khabib's in the last 2 years. No, really. Go look at it.

    Why wouldn't Bib fight Aldo? Not saying it's an easy fight but it's not a devestating loss if he were to lose and it would be the biggest win of his career. I like to think Aldo would win but Khabib should feel confident in this fight with a lot more to gain then lose.

    closer than you think
    Dana also said Conor asked for Khabib. I don't believe that bullshit. Conor straight up said he didn't want to fight him because of his inconsistencies. Then Dana said Khabib's dad turned that fight down. What? WTF. Some fuckery is afoot.

    not comparable. khabib couldn't be active like Tony because he got injured

    either way, Khabib is still more active

    he has way more fights (both pro and amateur) and hes several years younger.

    its uncommon to see a fighter as young as Khabib have that many fights. remember, Khabib was winning world championships back several years ago before Tony was even TUF calibre

    Because Aldo would destroy him, he couldn't take and hold Aldo down and Khabib is dogshit standing.

    Umm what?.. The reason Aldo is asking for Khabib is because it's the only way he'll get Conor to fight him.

    Dana offers fight for shit terms, fighter watches out for own interest and passes, he/she is ducking.

    I'm just telling you what Dana said. He said people in the division look at Khabib as the guy, and followed up with Aldo wants to fight Khabib for the interim belt.

    But of course it would also be his only way to a belt, and eventually yes, a fight with Conor
