    Respect. That’s the correct way of going about it.

    He knows he laid a dud on his debut, so he’s getting back in the lab for a quick turnaround.

    You should add context.

    One of those was when his mentor Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov died.

    The other two is a broken nose and appendicitis a serious inflammation.

    Since he's fighting what seems like more of a kickboxer expect a higher pace from Kape this fight. Hes one of the most skilled FLW's currently who doesn't USE his skill. Kinda like Darren Till in that sense.

    I never thought I would hear anyoen call Manel Kape boring

    that last fight wasn't a good representation of how he usually is.

    Nah, he aims and fires. I think he has great potential honestly.

    Weird to see a fighter wearing shoes.

    Weight cut down to 125 and not wearing shoes probably affected his performance somewhat. Kape was slipping in the octagon and his footing never looked quite comfortable.

    On Twitter he said the floor felt wet. He's fought just fine without shoes before.

    Khabibs whole camp is filled with pull out merchants TBH. Prolly the GOAT pull out team

    Khabib himself obviously (Cowboy and Tony 2 times each), Makhachev, Tagir, Zubaira etc. have pulled out multiple times too.

    AKA in general is prolly the GOAT pull out camp too

    I think it probably felt wet because he's used to wearing the shoes now. He's worn them for around his last 9 or so fights I think.

    Anyway lol @ someone calling him boring.

    he was slipping all over the octagon tonight. Notice that he came out with double ankle sleeves. Either he has an ankle injury he wants to protect or he was trying to get some traction. For such a foot work heavy fighter he looked real uncomfortable out there.

    Same as his first fight, he seems nervous to throw hands or attack first.

    Frustrating when he seemed like the better fighter.
