    To go train with Gaethje.




    It didn't matter like I said :D

    Usman and Rashad Evans were training Michael Johnson.






    29-0
    GOAT


    Khabib Bless

    Looks like Gaethje didn't listen to Usman's advice to footstomp Khabib.

    It's because D1 wrestler Gaethje feared clinching up with Khabib :D

    He was trying his hardest to shrug Khabib off when Khabib was trying to initiate the clinch lol

    Getting permission is the wrong way to frame this.

    It's just loyalty.

    Even Dana seeks khabibs permission. Khabib runs the UFC.

    Are you implying that Khabib is Usman's owner ?

    In this case, foot stomps would’ve worked wonders.

    Usman knows he shouldn't make Khabib angry. ;) Khabib would be a far bigger challenge than Colby, if Khabib ever moved up a weight class.

    It was a smart idea from Gaethje/Wittman side to get Kamaru in their camp.

    But Usman doesn't nearly present the Submission threat Khabib has.

    And learning enough grappling to negate or atleast defend some positions in a 2/3 months camp is a tall order.

    Makes the Khabib vs Usman matchup so intriguing. Apparently Usman was having a significantly hard time taking Gaethje down and when he did he'd just pop right back up.

    Khabib's submission game might be too much for Usman, I can see him subbing Usman off his back with a Kimura like RDA almost did.

    Usman was having a hard time taking Jorge down.

    And Khabib doesn't only have better grappling skills but he's also the faster fighter and has equal amount of stamina.

    The pressure and pace he put on a first round fresh Justin Gaethje was insane.

    Khabib would also never abandon his takedown game like Usman did against cuckington.

    Kamaru also said he’d never fight Khabib, they’re good friends.

    Gaethje should have trained with Maia instead. You can't pop back up from. Your back being taken.

    Good ol MMA math. There's a reason Khabib never moved up and damn near hurt himself to make weight
