    Haha, decent back and forth and that's a fight I never knew I needed in my life! Excellent test for the impressive Topuria.

    Lol Ilia with the TMI at the end but it's cool. Seems like a chill guy and is absolute killer in the cage. Should be a fucking war.

    Such a great time to be an MMA fan.

    Who is KZ going to fight though?

    Topuria seems like a dick to be honest. Not sure why he thinks he should be fighting the number 5 guy. This will be a good fight, though, and it's the more logical fight. Both guys are similar fighters, so I'm looking forward to it.

    Zabit. Remember the time Zabit said he doesn't want to fight KZ coz he's coming off a loss? He's already bounced back win a dominant win against Ige.

    Or the loser of Max vs Yair. KZ wanted the Max fight as much as a title shot. And he also mentioned he would still love to run it back with Yair down the road.

    Because he's a boss and a future world champion probably.

    Could be, but he gasses after two. I think his fight against Dan will be great.

    I'm certainly looking forward to it. Ige is a solid gatekeeper test for anyone.

    Let's get it. Should be a war. Any response from Kattar yet?

    Kattar's team have been looking to set up fights with KZ or Allen, two guys who actually have ranked wins and put work into the division. I doubt they'll entertain even responding to topuria.

    Lol. I like ryan hall. Anyways, the ige fight is good. I just don't like the glimpses of topuria's personality that we've seen-- he seems like a spoiled, arrogant brat. He's a fun fighter though

    Emmett or Giga or Kattar. The 4 of them should be matched up in some way shape or form. Maybe Zabit if Mark Henry's cryptic social media post was indicative of a return.

    Man... considering Emmett arguably had a FOTY in 2020, he's one of the least talked about guys on here.
