    A fan questioned if Eddie was ducking Khabib and that he should fight him because Khabib is 1 in the division.

    Eddie trashed Khabib's record saying it's easy to be undefeated when you fights fringe guys, he fought the best to get his title shot and everyone else should have to do the same.

    I like Eddie, but you do get a succinct feeling that he's ducking khabib, but it's probably because he wants money fights, not because of fear or anything like that.

    He will get very well aquainted with the ring lights when he faces khabib.

    He is the Champion so it is his duty to defend against the best guys and not hand pick his opponents just because he wanted to fight the best to get the title shot

    The fan asking him actually brought that up and Eddie didn't really address it.

    Alvarez just said if you're number 8 fight 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 and ask for a title shot.

    Alvarez basically doesn't want to fight the number 1 which is Khabib.

    In his defence, Eddie is smart, stay champ for as long as he can and avoid the hardest fights.

    its very smart. WHy make it easy on people who want to take his belt,i wouldnt. Its one at a time they have to fight him,so id just start talking shit on all of them,it gets the dudes who get passed over fuckin pissed.Gotta make life hard for these guys gunnin for you. Jon jones wanted Gus to fight DC before they made it to him, thats a smart play. Jones is saying hey ill fight the best but they shouldnt get no free rides.

    In Eddie's 4 UFC fights, he has already fought tougher comp than Khabib.

    You're commenting on a gif of suplexs and judo throws man. Khabib has one of the more exciting grappling styles. His fight against abel was very entertaining and this coming from a guy who HATES lay and pray.

    Khabib's best win is decision against RDA. Alvares TKO'd him in first. Other than that who did Khabib beat?

    Tony vs Khabib needs to happen

    He was asked and he completely said Khabib fights chumps and he doesnt fight people who fight chumps... yet Khabib beat RDA which is now Alvarez's most recent best win.



    He wants NO part of Khabib, despite Khabib being ranked #1 right now

    Alvarez wants McGregor.

    UFC is going to have to force him to fight Ferguson or Khabib.

    Khabib beat RDA over 2 years ago and has fought one scrub they brought in on short notice since then. How people think he deserves anything is beyond me. He might just as well have taken PEDs and been suspended for 2 years for all we know about him.
