Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Damn so his second time missing weight. LW losing Khabib would be really lame. Especially since he looks like he could trim a lil fat.

Respect to Tony for being classy. Really didn't expect that. I could only image how frustrating it must be to do a really hard training camp and not be able to fight. But I reckon he still gets paid and gets the next shot at the title.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Johnson said he's around 170 & could get to 160. IMO unfair and stupid to make a guy who is fighting on less and a day and a half's notice cut weight - just make it a 170 lb fight & have Johnson & Ferguson weigh in later today or early tomorrow.

As well he shouldn't. As much as it pains me to admit, Connor was absolutely spot on with his reasoning not to fight him.

Ya really let me down Khabib.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

lol khabib. He didn't have a chance against Ferguson anyways. Johnson v. Ferguson only makes sense be cause Ferguson lost to Johnson 5 years ago. Not sure how that happened.

Doing it at 170 wouldn't really be fair to Ferguson. Cutting from ~170 to 155 and then rehydrating back up is not the same as walking around at 170, Ferguson's strength and conditioning would be comparatively diminished. Better to have the fight at a catchweight somewhere in the middle, 160-165.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

does the UFC have a couple guys on un-official standby for when this crap happens? Kinda weird that Johnson would be available unless there is another guy out there who was plan B if Ferguson went down.

Don't be retarded, Khabib was almost a 2-1 favorite.

MJ basically just stuffed his takedowns and out boxed him on the feet. Pretty dangerous fight for Tony still imo. MJ hands have looked better than ever lately.

Bisping MIA

As upset as I am about no Ferg/Khabum I at least take solace in knowing Dana White may have a heart attack tonight.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Having a legit excuse to keep Khabib away from Conor might be a good thing tbh.

I just realized AKA fighters have now pulled out of 4 events in a row lmao. Absolutely ridiculous.

Apparently they offered Tony less money than he was gonna make fighting Khabib.



Tony handled this with pure class

" Where's your Kid-ney at Khabib. " - saw this on reddit lol.

Yeah Tony has handled it with class. Feel bad for all concerned to be honest, even Kahbib.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

There was a clip in one of the embedded episode where Khabib was in a restaurant ordering a tiramisu as a starter. With everything that's at stake with a fight like this I find it hard to have any sympathy with a professional fighter who doesn't make weight. Unless it's a case of a medical issue hindering the weight cut then imo it's a disgrace.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Two opportunities to reschedule Ferguson-Khabib presuming they want it on PPV. UFC 210 in 5 weeks, UFC 211 5 weeks after that. After that we're in to Ramadan, which assuming Khabib wants a full camp post-Ramadan means he can't fight until late August.
