    I hope he loses just so we’ll have an active champ in Tony

    He's not very active but at least he defends his belt.

    Khabib is actually the more active fighter between the 2 recently

    Ramadan lasts for 1 month so it's not the reason he's fighting 'once a year'.

    People do realize that this is Khabib's 2nd fight in the span of a year right?

    Really he could just fight during Ramadan? Maybe it would even help with his weight cutting problems? Isn't that when they don't eat during daylight hours for a month?

    Gotta respect A-level Muslim athletes like Hakeem Olajuan who competed during several rammmaduns. People who have faith in Allah have no problem competing.

    Khabib has fought more frequently than Tony for the last several years, they both have 28 fights and turned pro in the same year, and Tony is about to turn 36.

    I personally am not a fan of Khabib and hope that Tony beats him but it's not like Tony would be fighting more often anyway if he were to be champion. People are forgetting that Tony is 36 now (in 12 days technically ) so it's not like he's young anymore

    Ramadan is more than just a period of fasting. Go learn something and come back strong.

    Him fighting once a year has fuck all to do with Ramadan.
    He got a 9 month suspension after the Conor fight, that's 9 years worth of Ramadans.

    He does seem like one of those guys that'd be hard to manage once they are champ, like Khabib is.

    True, his poor ethics and unsportsmanlike behaviour are a real problem too. At least Conor seems to have grown as a person since then.

    If you knew something about it we would be having a conversation about it here, but you don't so we aren't. So stop filling this thread with pointless bile.

    Like Sweater said, it's more than just a period of fasting, and from what I understand, you're supposed to basically be on your A-game in Ramadan lol.

    So you absolutely can't do anything that could be considered sinful. Prizefighting in Islam is looked down upon. I think that's why Khabib avoids having any fights on Ramadan. Could be other reasons though.
