    Fair but I should clarify

    Khabib is prob the biggest draw outside of Conor. I think for the most part, they'll just give Khabib what he wants without much issue. Those are all very minor things

    When we're talking about a rematch with Conor though, he is heavily out gunned and no longer the A side. He would certainly have a say, but there's no calling the shots for him in that scenario.

    Well what I mean was, he was saying things like Conor isn't getting a shot etc. Saying he'd have to beg him or something. Paraphrasing a bit.

    This is pretty much the same sort of tune. I think he's just having fun/ talking shit and his comments shouldn't be taken too seriously

    Ask Khabib
    Khabib will be making 10 million from Ferguson fight + PPV%.

    There was an interview with his manager recently. Khabib's deal is progressive now, which means he will be getting more money for every fight as long as he keeps winning. He made around 6 million for Poirier fight + PPV%, he'll make 10 million + PPV% vs Ferguson. If he beats Ferguson his next fight he'll be getting even more.

    Immediately after first Conor fight, Khabib's father said they'd want 30 million for a rematch. I can imagine that the price will go up if Khabib beats Ferg.

    Maybe you're right, but I think that trash talk in the build up to that first fight and recently the press conference in Moscow where McGregor talked shit about Dagestanis has changed things. I don't think this is just trash talk to Khabib anymore, he really dislikes McGregor. Which him jumping the cage after the first fight proves.

    Disagree with you on him not being the A side. How can you not be the A side against a guy you dominated?

    there is only one possibility for a re-match and this is if Khabib loses to Tony.

    actually only than we would see if Conor is really looking for a rematch or if he will try to push Dana to fight for the title against Tony

    Sadly that's how business works


    Conor is still the most popular fighter who commands the highest payday.

    Khabib bless . Sorry Dana but Cowgirl is a journeyman and so is Conor at this point. Conor hasn't won a fight in over 3 years and is too lazy to cut weight or do media. Fuckem

    Okay, 30 million then. Or if that's not enough, 40 million. Whatever Khabib wants I bet Dana is willing to pay it because he knows a Conor vs Khabib rematch would make his money back and then some.

    Reading some of the comments here you get the sense some people wish Khabib was just another push over Champ instead of standing firm on his principles. You can hear them praying he somehow is forced to fight Conrat so they can accuse Khabib of not being of his word.

    He does have an odd build, he's super strong but doesn't really look it unless you notice how huge his back is.

    Dollars talk. He will fight Conor if the UFC tell him to. He is just engaging in brinkmanship to get a better deal

    Oh wow, so you can get stripped for choosing to fight more deserving contenders?? Could you please point to one example of where this has happened in the UFC?

    Your opinion doesn't count. Believe it or not, that's the information we have from his camp.

    Is this the first time where a match between two fighters on losing streaks can possibly get a title shot off of it
