    I mean in the sense that it's a fight that everyone wants, but for some reason or another it hasn't happened yet. And it's a fight between an undefeated fighter and the one guy who a lot of people think has a chance of beating that undefeated fighter.
    Let's all hope that Khabib Vs Tony doesn't end up like Mayweather Vs Pacquiao, where they fight when they are both way past their primes and the fight ends up being boring as a result of them being past their primes.

    Virtually identical.

    PS: There’s a 100% chance Khabib vs Tony will be a better fight than MayPac.

    Khabib vs Tony is actually happening in both fighters primes. So it's not really like Mayweather Pacquiao.

    Based on their history that isn't a fair assumption

    Khabib, but I think Tony will be Khabib's toughest challenge so far.

    Not necessarily. They are both in their prime while it was clear Manny was pretty much at the end of his against Floyd.

    Plus, there’s no steroid allegations here.

    LOL I wouldn't go that far, but I think it's fair to say that Khabib is the Mayweather of MMA. Especially considering the fact that both of their fathers were fighters as well, and they have both been training since they were toddlers.

    But again that's assuming one of them doesn't pull out again. And both Floyd and Manny were past their primes when they fought. Floyd is 2 years older than Manny in fact.
    Also pretty much every fighter is accused of taking steroids in their careers. Hell I've seen people on here accuse GSP of taking steroids and he was one of the guys who pushed for stronger drug testing in the first place.
