    Very Impressive. Barbosa always seems to disappoint. I don’t understand the guy.

  • logicalfellac

    Khabib looked phenomenal. Arguably his best performance to date.

  • LegendKiller

    That was a domination …. He must be given the title shot next with Tony … many consider Tony the real champ, anyways it’s not like mcgregor would take the fight with Khabib or in that case Dana would make that happen..he wants to save his puppy from potential danger.. ( but Khabib has to stay healthy too .. and make weight )
