    At least he's honest. Khabib isn't coming to fight; he's coming to wrestle and hump. Pettis should decline that fight, since he gets nothing out of it. Khabib is even admitting that he's not coming to fight.

    At some point, you are going to need striking Khabib. And that point is coming soon.

    Too bad this isn't kickboxing. Hard to show your expert level striking when you are getting dumped on your head for the entire fight

    Too bad this isn't wrestling. Hard to show your expert level grappling when you are getting KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT ROUND FUCKING ONE

    No matter how good you are, if you are predictable against a high level guy like Pettis in a 5 round you are goona get caught.

    Glad to see the Khabib dick riding has died down around here, and people now see the very obvious truth.

    Pettis vs Khabib is an intriguing matchup, but right now, Pettis has his hands full with RDA.

    I believe Khabib has the style to bring the heat to Pettis, but Pettis will know exactly what he wants to do, so he will have plenty of time to plan around that.

    Asken takedowns are quite low profile even if effective, his control is amazing and he chains techniques in a torrent that overhelms the opponent. Khabib has amazing TDs but once in the ground he is solid but nothing special.

    Khabib's smack talk is unique with a certain "lost in translation" quality to it.
