    This is all just fantasy and speculation at this point. Khabib has a fight with Tony in April, there's no reason to talk about him fighting anyone else until that fight is complete.

    Boxing is a mess with all the sanctioning bodies, corruption, and bullshit. I always did like the mandatory defenses though.. You can run mother fucker, but you can't hide! Well.. except for yoyo-ing through weight classes trying to avoid other fighters.

    There are some very clueless people here who think that Khabib would be stripped over this nonsense.

    The UFC is very interested in expanding globally. Khabib is currently the key to the Russian and Middle Eastern markets and a means to an end in that regard.

    Stripping Khabib means that they will NEVER get the rematch AND they would lose Khabib as well. That is lose/lose and some very short sighted thinking. McGregor fights will still sell very well whether it is for a title or not. If Khabib gets by Ferg and then shoots down the rematch next then that doesn't mean that it would be off of the table permanently. The fight could still happen, just not immediately.

    Dana did not build the UFC into the #1 MMA organization in the world by being stupid.

    If Dana stripped his golden boy Conor twice why in the fuck would he have a problem stripping Khabib?

    lol why are you so bitter? you do realize that you're basically saying that a guy who isn't special obliterated your idol, right?

    He ll fight irrelevant men ih his category , but for proper price .

    Already destroyed McCosby. No reason not to do it again, unless he doesnt allow diva status in Ufc for blondie

    Tony isnt irrelevant bro
    being a good fighter wont save his title. Conor is the biggest star in the sport and they stripped him. But you goofs think he wont strip Khabib? please

    they stripped conor because he was inactive for years... do you even believe in the bullshit you say?

    the UFC has never stripped a fighter for choosing to fight more deserving contenders. conor is not the #1 contender after tony, gaethje is.

    If Khabib beats Tony and then gets stripped because he refused to give Conrad a rematch then the lightweight division would be the biggest joke in the sport. You can not call yourself the best lightweight in the world if you haven't beat khabib. A belt means jack shit.
