    I'll be amazed if Islam makes it to the ring for that one.

    Good fight for Islam to showcase his skills vs a known opponent...

    Good to see Gillespie isn't taking a step backwards, hope he pulls it off. Islam does match up well with him though, unfortunately. I'd love to see Gillespie knock his block off though.

    Islam opponent announcement is like Conor opponent announcement.

    There is about an 90% chance it fizzles out, but for different reasons.

    Islam wanting FKL’s sloppy seconds is not haram.

    I don't think anyone 'hates' Gillespie. It's just that he was undefeated before fighitng Kevin lee, All american, D1 Wrestler, supposed to be THE guy to beat khabib.
    Khabib haters liked to think he was their saviour lol, but then he fought Kevin Lee, got put to sleep and the hype train stopped in the middle of the tracks.

    That’s actually a sick fight but makes no sense for Islam at all

    Great fight, if it happens. Gillespie always brings it, and Islam is fun to watch too. Sad to see that Davi Ramos is being forgotten, guy's ground game is much better than Gillespie's IMO.

    75/25 Makhachev by decision.
