    Who have you got for this fight? This is a great fight, if you want good wrestling exchanges and scrambles, then you should watch this.

    I think Makhachev can out wrestle Wade, just like Khabilov did.

    What do you all think?

    and I agree, Khabib and Abdulmanap should prepare him more than enough for this.

    I feel like Rustam Khabilov could hang better with the top guys and he could barely beat Wade. I think Wade will take it a decision over the fairly untested Islam.

    Barely beat Chris? Their initial striking skirmish was fairly competative, outside of Wade's flying kick which floored Khabilov. But after Rustam initiated the wrestling game it was all Rustam.

    Islam is lucky that Chris doesn't have much KO capability, it seems. Makhachev is very wild and overreaching in the stand-up which any capable counter-striker with power -- like Adriano -- can punish him for. Chris just doesn't seem to have that arsenal. So I think Islam will just out-wrestle him to a decision.

    Rustam breat Chris Wade clearly lol. Barring the knockdown, Rustam easily beat him with grappling.
