    Tony has lost two straight fights and several straight rounds, now he has another shot at beating a student of Abdulnap.

    Doesn't he really want the smoke if he's not getting a Khabib oil money night?

    I mean that’s not exactly a tune up fight after 2 hard losses

    Sadly I'd probably favour Islam at this point in Tony's career, was hoping the Justin fight was a one off but he got beat pillar to post by Oliveira too. Book it and give Tony one last chance at a hurrah or it gives Islam the chance to make a name for himself.

    Dangerous fight

    Tony needs an easier fight. Tony's is too old to hang with the young crushers

    yeah no reason for Tony to take this fight at all. He just got dominated twice in a row and Islam is on the rise 7 in a row. There are several other guys on Islams trajectory for him to fight and conversely Tony has some guys on the downward slope like Hooker, Felder, Conor or perhaps the rematch with FKL.

    Tony should not be content with gatekeeper fights. He really should be winding it down for retirement because only CTE will come from his style but if he must fight it has to be with guys on his level. UFC rankings are pure dogshit to begin with, Dariush on a 6 fight W streak should essentially be ranked above Tony
