    Should be an interesting fight. It will depend at what range it is fought. Outside, Pettis annihilates him.

    Pettis wil outstruck him and make it look easy...

    I don't know if he will finish RDA, but he is gonna kick dat ass...

    I can see only Jose Aldo hanging with Pettis in the striking game...

    Also, I think Khabib is gonna take that belt...

    Pettis absorbed Bendo's talents after making him tap.

    RDA has a slim chance to be able to hang with Pettis kickboxing and striking. We will see how good dos Anjos really is.

    If Barboza had a better chin, would be a good stand up battle...

    I think that's a bad gameplan, I think Showtime picks him apart standing.

    I think Pettis takes this one too and I'm kind of rooting for him. I wanna see Pettis vs Khabib so bad!

    I think Pettis will be too dynamic especially in the later rounds if it gets there. I think Pettis will finish him, and Khabib

    I like those guys... But in reality, they are both levels below Khabib.

    I hope that's what he tries to do. Should make for a great stand up fight. I favor Pettis though.

    I stopped doubting RDA at this point but I still don't see that happening. He quite possibly can win a decision tho...

    What has Khabib done so special besides have one big win in his entire career against RDA?

    Melendez would wreck him IMO. Cerrone would be an interesting one.

    I made an account bet that RDA takes it. His striking is so much more improved than when he was just a BJJ guy. The dude knocked out Benson Henderson, something Pettis couldn't do.

    I think RDA takes it via pressure, takedowns, top control, and throwing heavy leather.

    Also, being a Khabib fan, I hope RDA wins so that Khabib has an easier route to the championship lol.

    Pettis is on another level compared to Henderson. Good luck to him though.

    LOL Melendez is done. Dude has no chin anymore and his wrestling isn't good enough in the top 5. Khabib has no problems with anyone except for Pettis.
