    Translation:

    I can confidently say that the pressure that Khabib puts on is the most powerful I have encountered.
    When he’s above you you feel like you’re fighting a middle or heavyweight.
    I don't think tony can stop him.

    What a great fight! I think Khabib will beat Tony. I have not purchased a fight In years but I will be buying this one.

    I don’t give a fuck, I’ll accept Khabib as the goat if he stops Tony

    The way Tony doesn't defend the TD, Khabib will have his way with him. I think people will be surprised how easy he makes It look.

    Tony will welcome it to the ground but 12 fight win streak in he's proven he doesn't care where the fight takes place. This will easily be one of the most interesting fights of the 2020's.

    Tony is not going to get caught on the cage trying to stand up like Johnson and get wrist rode while Khabib talks to Dana. He's going to piece khabib up on the feet. If Khabib shoots, he'll threaten Darce. If Khabib secures a take down Tony will lock in his rubber guard and start dropping bows and threaten with triangles. Most guys get caught trying to survive the grappling where tony will embrace it. He's not coming to fight Khabib he's coming to kill him. Its something Khabib has never really faced imo.

    Khabib's camp talking about head position in guard, being under the chin....yea good fucking luck getting there, good luck not getting swept, good luck not eating some serious bows and when you're in the midst of the deepest shit you've ever been in and you realize tony only gets stronger when he's tired and tastes your blood you're going to be really really fucking disappointed you took the fight.

    Let's just pray it happens this time

    Khabib will avoid the full guard, keep his head out of harms way, and break down Tony's body. Tony will have a large advantage on the feet in the beginning of every round. This should be awesome. Can't wait.

    yeah you're right, what the hell does Michael Johnson know. Tony will just use his magic elbows to decapitate Khabib easily. And even though Tony was getting man handled by a staph infected Kevin Lee on the ground, Khabib has nothing for him when it comes to grappling!

    Kevin Lee and Khabib don't use the same strategies or take downs. Very rarely is khabib sitting in someones guard, in this fight he'll have to.

    Moreover, Lee was fucked up by elbows and got caught in a triangle. Thanks for making my point for me

    With that much certainly in Tony winning combined with the betting odds being about 2 to 1 for Khabib, you must be betting quite a bit on Tony?

    Very likely, depends on the line at fight time and how they look at weigh ins. If it stays at +185 or better I'll probably take it. I havent seen a line on Tony by sub yet but I'd probably consider that and maybe the over on rounds as well. Something like a 4th round finish sounds about right. If I ship it i'll post my betting slip

    Khabib normally waits a minute in every round before he tries the first take down. Tony, with his pace can do so much damage in 1 minute, he makes Khabib a bloody mess.
