    He had a change of opponent a few times from Tony Ferguson to Anthony Petis to Paul Felder and finally dangerous Al Iaquinta all in a space of 3 hours the day before his title shot. But he believes in himself so much that he will maul anyone in front of him.......Point is why complain if comfortable in your own skills.

    lol Khabib fans. Pulled out of, or turned down, probably more fights than anyone in the entire UFC.

    And lol at the implication that Jacare is shook. He's fought plenty of late replacements himself, and accepted fights with higher ranked, better fighters who pulled out. The only reason he didn't want Hermansson is because he's a guy who Jacare could smoke in the first round, and still not be offered a title shot.

    Khabib was always fighting for the title that night. And was simply being offered easier opponents to go through to get it. You really gotta be Khabib-fan-stupid to think it's the same.

    You know you are a king of MMA when the trolls can only pull out old irelvant pictures from another culture as damage control.

    Khabib truly runs this game.

    What that really means is that it is so difficult for that 210lb guy to make weight, that when he does, he doesn't want to waste the effort. Of course he isn't afraid of anyone in the 155lb division, he should be fighting at 205lbs.

    Sure, KHabib is great, but few fighters have pulled out of or turned down as many fights as he has. He is also a 170 lb fighter cutting too much to fight smaller guys... but I have to admit I like his dominance.

    He only accepts fights for 6-7 months out of the year due to his religious leanings (yet actual Arab Muslims will still fight in the months Khabib has off), not to mention other times a fight has been off due to other actions. It's tough to say he takes on all comers when he holds a division back due to being absent for significant periods of time in a given year, not to mention his diva attitude when he became champ (though Ali certainly exacerbates that).
