If Justin Gaethje becomes the first fighter to beat Khabib Nurmagomedov to go with the battering of Tony Ferguson, that will be one of the greatest fighter years in MMA history. Couture in 2003, Shogun Rua in 2005 and fuck Jon Jones' 2011.

Cheers. Early Happy Birthday returns to you. I remember you saying it was your birthday when Khabib vs. Gaethje was announced. I'd not forgotten.

At least the free airing is only on a six day delay. BT Sport seems to be less of an arsehole about things like that, compared to the competition. For example, how long after McGregor vs Mayweather happened did Sky let it air on a Free channel?


They still haven't

I'm dying at Khabib facetiming with Cormier.

"When you fight Stipe Miocic. First round you go for the leg and take him down. He get back up. Then you change your entire gameplan. This is difference between you and me. You try once. I will try a hundred times."

Cormier gotta be wondering why he's friends with this fucking guy.
