    I like how he says that Judo is underrated in the UFC, then he goes on to mention that he has great Judo but has never ever shown it in the UFC. If It's so great then why haven't you used it Norman?!

    He has the right attitude. People criticised him for calling out Sanchez, well now he's calling out Nurmagomedov.

    I'm starting to like Parke more and more. I'm confident Khabib would win that fight though.

    He should outwork tibau. Stuff him and outstrike him to ud
    He has strong judo base and good tdd. I do think khabib fight would look simular to rda and abel fights

    I like Norman a lot. He's got very slick boxing and a great mentality.

    This is a bit ballsier of a callout than Diego Sanchez.

    He's getting a bit ahead of himself, but I'd like to see him against a top 15 opponent if he wins this

    Khabib would make a blow up doll out of him. He should worry about Tibau for now.

    Norman Parke isn't even near Dos Anjos level. Khabib via rag doll.

    lol was gona say the same... I respect all fighters but Norman kinda bothers me at times.. I would never say it to his face, and maybe he gets compared to Conor to much as he's from the same place/same time, but I don't think you should be thinking about Khabib (who's name he clearly know, so another slap to a much more popular fighter then him with no basis) when the general opinion is you've done nothing to show you can even get past Tiabu on Sunday. He's probably very hungry and motivated, but he second guesses himself in the octagon (from the little I remember) and I think he's gona be shy to pull the trigger after Tiabu gorilla hugs him to the ground.. Talking about wanting Tiabu to come out the best ever and push him so he can bring out his best? How about showing up at your best and taking it to the other fighter. His last fight was the easiest opponent you could ask for in UFC in his hometown, and though he stopped him, I don't think his ground & pound would stop anyone in the top 10. Kotani lost that fight 1 in the first round where he gave up, and you see off the takedown that led to the finish in the 2nd, he wanted out bad... Tiabau won't be so easy

    I like ya Norman, but I think Tibau wins a decision tomorrow night. Though I hope I'm wrong. And if you do win, you should get the winner of Ferguson/Yancy. Or Josh Thomson. Or reset up the Masvidal fight.

    He wins against Tibau IMO, but he's not ready for Khabib.

    Tibau is going to hurt him.

    He doesn't have great judo. I couldn't find any evidence of the facts the UFC were using.

    He isn't even a dan grade with the national governing body, if he is one then it's with one of the shitty organisations.

    Well many believe Tibau beat Khabib. If Parke can stomp out tibau then he might have a good chance.
