    Since Covid hit the UFC, Justin has went 2-1, all top 5 fighters at the time, only losing to now retired champion. Islam has went 3-0 with 1 top 10 win, no top 5 wins.

    Trying to put it in a different perspective since it's very hard to choose who deserves it but it didn't help lol still leaning slightly toward Justin being more deserving.

    Islam vs Oliviera is a dream fight of mine though if I'm being honest.

    Cmon guys, don't sandbag on @Substance Abuse . He is one of the better forum members and moderators on this overall unintelligent forum.

    Really looking forward to Fiziev vs Riddell. Wish it was 5 rounds though. I'm hoping Riddell uses some of his grappling, that way we can see how competent Fiziev is in the grappling department.
    Wonder who the winner should fight next. There are some interesting (and difficult) matchups for the winner.

    They can bag on me all they want. That's their right. Still, when Ack's biggest supporters are a pink belt and an Islam fanatical noob, that tells you all you need to know, lol.

    Everyone is just about tired of this gimmick. It got a pass from me until it started making asinine claims a few weeks ago. It is what it is.

    Happy Turkey day folks.

    I don't mind it. I wish every fighter had one poster assigned to him/her to make threads about him/her and nobody else. That way you'd get a more organized forum and you at least know that the TS is knowledgeable about everything concerning the fighter and most likely able to answer possible questions. You'd also get basically no troll/hater threads about a fighter.

    Wouldn't expect anything less from Fiziev, supported another Soviet. These guys all see things the same way, entitlement cause there is a long winning streak. But don't consider the fact of actually beating top competition which matters more.

    I work off the 10 years or 30 fights narrative. All the divisional GOATS have declined at one of those points. It makes sense as 10 years of top competition is most athletes careers.

    Regarding fighter bashing and making false allegation about fighters, I am with you concerning that, its not necessary.
    I think fans supporting and campaigning for their favorite fighters, although it may not appeal to some, many get much enjoyment from it.
    Islam Makhashev doesn't have many supporters here, the few he does are vocal.
    Anyway enjoy your weekend.

    Not really, just the presence of them is super fucking annoying. How many ways can on enoerson say he thinks Islam should be next, Islam is the best, Islam this Gaethje this, this so an so agrees with his opinion, blah blah blah. Whatever, carry on ok, but calling him out for it should be ok!
