    Just realized how little sense this fight makes lol. Did he call out the wrong fighter? Khabib vs Bendo woulda make alot more sense. Expect a long, boring 25 min decision victory for Henderson. Khabilov isn't good enough to beat top 10 fighters

    We've been over this. Bendo thought he called out Khabibi, then he realized too late that it was Khabilov.

    I would much prefer Khabib vs Bendo, but I don't think Bendo wants any of that.

    How is he a beast lol? Did you see his fight with Yancy, and Jorge? He's nothing special. Average fighter

    Not saying he's not a beast, but his best win is against Masvidal who, while a solid fighter, is pretty much a top 10/15 gatekeeper. He's unproven at this point.

    Khabilov beat Masvidal, who challenged Melendez for SF title and gave him a run for his money. The Russian is also undefeated in the UFC. A lot of people are underestimating Khabilov and writing him off. I'm not saying he will beat Bendo, but I would not be surprised if Khabilov does. This is actually a lot close of a competition than people give credit for.

    And The Yancy fight was just weird...

    A bit of a broad statement I'd say.

    If bendo actually signed the fight thinking it was khabib then lol. I was thinking this fight is set up because he could get a win but not get a title shot yet
