    Islam has shown great skills so far but Dober will be a good test for him finally. I like Islam and see potential in him, but its not like he's been fighting elite LW's left and right. He has a lot of earning to do still. Hopefully a win against Dober finally gets him a solid match-up (RDA, Hooker, Tony,..).

    If we ever see him fight again....hopefully he controls his diet next time and stops failing drug tests

    He also had the mumps according to dc iirc. I hope the whole team got the MMR vaccine. If not they should take it.

    The mumps looked scary

    When did he fail a drug test? Or miss weight?

    Good friend to put him over like that but Islam will pull out of those tougher fights. Often.

    Drober is tough as hell and a solid striker, would like to see Islam stand with him a bit

    Why do you think he keeps pulling out? It’s drug tests according to sherbros

    It's wierd cos Khabib had the same issue. Pulled out vs Cowboy like 4x and everyone thought he was ducking lol. With hindsight Cowboy should be thanking his lucky stars Khabib had injury issues around that time or else he would have taken the beating of a life time

    Dat lw belt will get tossed around like Sasha Grey now that Habib is gone. Islam is legit but he will lose fights.

    Say what you want but Habib, Gsp, Jones, Fedor and Anderson are once in a lifetime fighters.

    That’s an absolute lie. Name a couple of such habitual liars if they are sherbros.

    Khabib knows it's not true but what else is he supposed to say to his buddy? "You are good but you have never beaten me and you probably won't be champ."

    To be the man you have to beat the man. Or at least fight a fight a man every year or two.
