● Islam didn't want to fight October 30, Ali had to convince him to fight in Abu Dhabi. Islam wanted to rest and fight end of the year ● Islam thinks maybe the reason RDA couldn't make it to the fight is the long travel between USA-Abu Dhabi ●Islam only wanting to fight top ranked opponent when the RDA fight fell out. Tony/Hooker. ● Thinks the Ferguson fight is more interesting because of the history with Khabib. He also said if he beats Ferguson the fans will say hes to old. ● Thinks Hooker is a high level striker and have fought great fighters. After he beats Hooker , he will be ranked 3-4. ● Thinks Hooker took the fight for the money and because it was on short notice. He will take "skinny Hooker" down whenever he wants. ● Thinks hes very close to the titel with a win over Hooker but he honestly says that UFC will give him on more. Maybe the loser of Oliveira/Poirier ●Thinks Poirier will beat Oliveira, more experience and he will make him tired because when its a hard fight Oliveira tends to give up. ●If Chandler wins against Gaethje he will not get a TS because he just got one.
