I feel like the Islam fight is being overlooked

    Due to how stacked this card is, I barely see anybody talk about that fight. It would probably be a main or co-main on a fight-night otherwise

    So who you got? Does anybody think Dober can derail the Great Dagestani Hope?

    He has an entire country and religion behind him. He’s not overlooked.

    Well he’s still a 10-15 fighter, fighting another 10-15 fighter. There are 3 title fights on the card. With a double champ. And another fighter trying to become one. What do you expect?

    He has the potential to be the next champion, unfortunately his personality is absolutely unmarketable so UFC will make him win at least 5 more fights before giving him a title shot.

    On the other side they should promote more Drew Dobber, he is a very good looking guy and we all know that us Sherdoggers fall in love with handsome men.

    he's being touted as the next best thing and then hardly fights. i've seen more highlight reels of him doing things at AKA than actual fight highlights.

    i'm rooting for him though. but he's going to have to be spectacular to fill khabibs shoes. he needs a 30-26 or finish

    Islam needs his breakouts moment before he gets that mass appeal push. They've given him the forum to do this - opening fight on a huuugggeeee PPV.
    Let's see how he goes

    I think the fight gets cancelled again like most Islam's fights

    If Khabib stays retired, he can fill that void that Khabib left behind. They will market him to Khabib's fanbase. Which is also the reason why Dana doesn't want Khabib to retire, he doesn't want to lose that fanbase and demographic.

    I don’t think many people are interested in him that much in general.

    The other 3 fights on the card are championship fights, and Rakic could fight for a title in his next fight assuming he beats Santos, Islam still has a way to go before hes getting offered a title shot, that's probably why.

    I need to see Islam actually entering the cage to believe he's going to fight tomorrow

    I think Islam is going to win but the odds +420 Dober seems a bit much

    That's what happens when there's 3 title fights on the same card, a former champ in Cruz fighting and Islam is fighting Drew Dober.
