    I'm rooting for Khabib in this one and give him more chances to win. But honestly can't even picture in my head how this fight will go. Both are elite grapplers with good cardio so it's difficult to judge. What do you think about this fight?

    I hope so.

    The only thing that i'm worried about is Ferguson's ground game, he is very slick and crafty with his bjj, that's why he brawls like a madman without worrying about being taken down.

    Khabib has been out for two years. If he comes back in the form he had before I say he mauls Ferguson but Ferguson is on a roll and he's been more active so I could see him winning.

    Nah. He is pretty good. Watch his last 3-4 fights, he got great killer instinct on the ground.

    Khabibs been out a really long time now. I think hell win but not by Abel style blowout.

    Yeah, but i heard from some Russian sources that he is doing great in training.

    I'm more curious about what Khabib's gameplan will be. Constantly try to take Tony down and keep him there will be problematic imo

    Assuming Khabib even makes it to fight night, I'll take Tony by D'Arce in the 3rd or 4th.

    I agree, its gonna be interesting. I dont see Khabib winning without implementing his wrestling but that can be said about all his fights really. More I think about it, its difficult to say on account of Tony being so great in scrambles. I dont think hell be able to neutralize Khabibs relentless wrestling ability completely. He will get taken down. The question then becomes as you alluded to, can he keep him down and then from there not get caught in a sub?
    I think it would be rather foolish of Khabib to engage in a striking battle with someone who gets as berserker wild as Ferguson. Tough one to call, Ill still say Khabib but wouldnt put money dollars on it.

    Ferguson is my favorite fighter so I'm probably biased but wherever fight goes even wrestling.

    Watching what Ferguson did to DaDa tonight I don't see how Khabib could possibly get the W.

    He doesn't grapple bears like Khabib.
