    Why on God’s green earth are those two bozos ducking him so hard. No reason at all for them not to defend their spot against him. I cannot wait for Hooker to get KTFO again and Felder was never that good anyway.

    They rather people tune in to watch them instead of forgetting because the opponent is a no name.

    They don't want to get scheduled a fight with Islam and have to wait 2 years and 5 cancelations to fight him

    Hold your horse TS. Using history as our guide Islam won't be ready for a fight until early 2023.

    I don't blame Hooker or Felder for not wanting to postpone their career a year waiting for an opponent to finally be ready.

    Well Felder is semi-retired and only taking fights that interest him. He's already admitted that he turned down Islam due to his style.

    I suspect Hooker is also ducking him for similar reasons. It's a hard style to prepare for and unlike fighting Khabib, there's nothing to be gained from beating Islam.

    Islam is a talented fighter, but it doesn't really seem like his career is going anywhere. He fights too rarely and pulls out of too many fights.

    I think Hooker should fight him. Hooker is overranked right now. He either needs to justify being in the top ten with a big win over a guy like Islam or needs to be bumped down out of the top ten and let Islam replace him.

    Felder though? That guy is semi-retired and just looking for a few FOTN style bangers.

    Islam probably doesn’t make it to the fight.

    he’s pulled out of 4-5 fights.

    It’s a risk to sign to fight him.

    Also he’s tough and not very popular. A Shitty combination.

    I had money on Drew Dober. It’s gone.
