    Well...December is something at least - he's been injured that long I've kinda forgot about him. Mind you, he did have a fight quite recently

    Like both fights Pettis probably better gets a quality win under his belt for the title shot.

    Cowboy would have disemboweled him at 187.

    I didn't know that khabib still fights. They should make him fight RDA in Mexico City. That way he gasses, loses and they can set up a rubber match and then cancel it after khabib gets injured 3 more times .

    This ^ He is much worse than Pettis on the time length of his injuries. Part of the problem for Pettis was related to TUF.

    Khabib isn't as amazing as people make out. Ok, he beat RDA a few years ago, but it wasn't the first time RDA has lost in the UFC and RDA has simply evolved incredibly since their fight and been much more active. Their rematch would be a different story and he'll be exposed as a one dimensional grappler very soon.

    Khabib's record is padded with cans, almost as bad as a boxer's record. RDA is his only really impressive win and that can be chalked up to a bad style matchup. The Khabib hype is unwaranted as hell. Considering he hasn't fought since April 2014 he should need 1 or 2 fights before a title shot.

    Wait, are people really talking about Nick Diaz as if he wasn't about to be suspended to the max for a third failed test ?
