    Khabib and Islam said that Islam most likely will fight on the same card.

    Now, seems appropriate to get another Muslim fighter in Abu Dhabi.

    Finally, let’s cut the crap about Islam being unranked, he’s definitely top 10.

    If Justin is as he claims like he will fight anyone, he will accept this fight

    They're on the same management so I doubt it.

    Too soon for Islam imo. He's fought great grapplers why not give him a good striker like James Vick? If he gets past Vick then see what's what

    Wouldn't say "no" to Islam fighting anyone in the top 10 at AD. I mean, a guy with his name simply MUST fight on that card.

    Islam should get a top 10 now, Gillepsie would be a perfect matchup.

    Gaethje has nothing to gain from fighting a prospect

    I don't like any potential for Gaethje to be in a boring fight, but I'd like to see Islam get eliminated.

    I'll allow it.

    Yeah but that's for a title fight. Ali would advice against it, because Gaethje is close to a title shot and Islam is not a top 10 yet.

    Hasn't earned a Gaethje fight

    Felder, Gregor or Chucky Olives all make a lot of sense

    Feed Islam to Gillespie so we can see some NCAA wrasslen' grinding out another overhyped Magomed.

    Islam would get destroyed.

    Give Islam either Felder or Gillespie. Then Justin can focus on the winner of Al/Cowboy.

    Gaethhje's grappling is basement tier compare to Islam.

    He'll get controlled and embarrassed.

    He's got decent boxing for an mma guy

    Also very long for that division so you gotta spend more energy landing shots
