    Basically he says, of course tony's dangerous and unpredictable, and very unorthodox. But Khabib's going to be able to out-wrestle tony, and tony is going to have a hard time submitting khabib off his back.

    Cliffs on predictions is all that's needed. No one gives a fuck about a grappling recital

    I was only interested in the Tonon grappling match, predictions by fighters are generally pretty lame. I see a lot of UFC fighters are doing grappling matches, it's kinda cool. Tonon vs Poirier is just a wacky match up, it's fun and i'm interested to see how bad Gary smokes him.

    They can meet up at a gym and play around. Gonna end up tearing someones knee up and getting a scheduled fight canceled. Then contracts will be changed to no outside activity. Should allow open palm strikes to draw in at least 10 viewers.

    It's a farce. Someone like Poirier gets paid WAY too much by the UFC to risk any sort of injury fighting off a leglock from a guy like Tonon. He'd be dumb to do anything but tap as soon as there's any chance that is leg is in jeopardy. It's not like he's going to win anyway.

    See Oleinik vs Ryan from a couple weeks ago for what it will probably look like. Gordon didn't even come close to fully extending the leg and Alexei was tapping. Good on Ryan for knowing what was up and going very slowly with it to make sure the Boa Constrictor had plenty of time to tap.

    Yeah, that's a good point, but i'd like to think there's a lot of respect in there too, it's not like he's grappling Palhares.
