    Kajan has worse TDD than CM Punk.

    Why are they feeding a can to a guy on a 5 fight win streak?

    Khabilov should be fighting Hernandez or Hooker.

    Dana feeding Kajan to the Dagestani mafia until he gets cut from the UFC. Also wonder how many wins in a row it'll take for Khabilov to finally get a ranked opponent. At this rate he'll be on a 15 fight win streak still fighting guys like Damir Hadzovic.

    UFC calls that the "Michel Prazeres and Mairbek Taisumov Approach"

    They're matching up all the good Russian prospects with cans so they can get good wins in their home country.

    Kajan Johnson > Martins > Khabilov.
    Machachev > Johnson > Martins > Machachev

    glitch in the matrix imo.

    I think they're giving Kajan 1 more so it doesn't look very bias when they cut him after another loss. If they did it after 1 people would get their panties in a bunch because he's been vocal about fighters union and pay etc.

    To be fair, he is a point fighter though. I know he has that finish over Martins but, aside from that, he's done nothing but try to point fight his way to victory. I'd be happy if the UFC got rid of guys like him and Elias. They aren't even top level guys, they are just point fighters.

    I think Khabilov is having visa issues so they are not going to push him. Good to see him having a fight.

    Also it seems that Kajan is getting some Chris Wade treatment here.

    I dont think the UFC cares about people thinking if they cut Kajan. I dont even think people would care enough to complain.

    Kajan is a good fighter. This is not a gimme fight.

    And Elias? You dont want to cut the best hair in the UFC

    Wtf is this fight? Khabilov is essentially a replica of Makhachev lmao. He might not be as young, but he is more experienced. I would be very surprised if Khabilov did not get a finish here.

    and since Makhachev just beat Johnson.. can we give him someone? Would be great to see him on this card.

    Lol at winning 4 out of last 5 fights in the UFC and being a can.

    Goddamn Sherdoggers are dumb sometimes. He lost his last fight though, on Sherdog that means everything
