    Okay so who do you guys have picked to win by what in which round?

    This is Khabib's first fight in almost 2 years, his wrestling is clearly the strongest in the division and he's shown decent striking ability in the past (although rather wild at times). So we'll have to see how that matches up with Tony's length and creative style.. It'll be interesting to see if he can stay on the feet and avoid Khabib's takedowns all together. If not, he'll have to try to maintain guard and attack with elbows and/or submission attempts / try to return to his feet as quickly as possible. Tony's going to have to stay on the offense while being very aware of the takedowns while keeping constant pressure on Khabib so he can try and break the pace Khabib forces upon his opponents. For Khabib, he'll have to try and stay in Ferguson's face , but out of range of his power punches, and try to get takedowns whenever the opportunity presents itself. then while on the ground try to advance to more advantegous positions (side control, mount) try to look for submissions of his own (although he hasn't shown very much versatility in his submission offense) or just go for takedowns and grind him out all night long into the decision.

    This is all depending upon whether Khabib is still the same fighter he was 2 years ago before these injuries, but who knows, it could've motivated him to become better. Ie: Dominick Cruz

    So yea tell me what you guys think! How do you see this one going down ? Who wins and by what in which round?

    Impossible to predict. It all depends on how Khabib looks after the lay off and injuries.

    Yep, that pretty much sums it up. If he's on point, I think he'll win a decision. If not, I think Ferguson will stop him.

    Impossible to know how Khabib is going to look after a 2 year absence. If it's the Khabib of old it's his fight to lose.

    I see Tony picking him apart with his Boxing and using his wild scrambling style to get back up to his feet when taken down.
    Tony via Decision.
