wasn't WME IMG plan from the start was to cut down on events?
less shows, better card, but that would suck for the low level and up and coming fighters trying to fight

It's funny that a people are so concerned with what meryl streep says. They so sensitive about everything now.

I don't think Ferguson hits harder than Michael Johnson and Khabib was able to deal with him. Ferguson's awkwardness will be the wild card for this fight.

Ferg is a better boxer than Johnson and has more precise punches. Makes up for the power although I'd argue his power is comparable or perhaps even more than Johnson

Ferg is arguably the most complete fighter in the division

Khabib is an immovable object

Great fight 50-50

Is he? Not positive about that. Even though I think Johnson relies alot on his overhand, Ferguson never struck me as elite with his hands, Johnson is pretty damn good as far as MMA goes. But Ferguson is tall and long so of course that helps.

I think he'll make the khabib matchup interesting though because of his combo of striking wrestling and size.

They both get sloppy at times (Johnson offensively imo), I've seen ferg rock people with his punches, rda and barboza recently. Defensively he's sloppy and depends on his strong chin too much

Perhaps fergs overall alternative striking to me makes him the more effective boxer
post #36136 of 37646
Yeah he's definitely the more non-traditional striker so it's gonna be interesting to see how khabib deals with him. If Ferg can deal with Khabib's wrestling I definitely think he takes it, but that's a big if.
post #36137 of 37646
Ferg is definitely up there as far as complete fighters go..but I'm not sure anyone can keep khabib from mauling them.

Conor. That left hand is vicious. I'm done acting like these cats are going to be able to handle it. 

 

Khabib gotta close the distance to get Conor to the ground. Leaves him wide opening for those counter strikes. We saw that MJ was able to do in a few of those exchanges. Imagine what conor would do.

I'd enjoy seeing that fight

Does he have a contract with UFC that prevents him from fighting outside of UFC?

post #36146 of 37646
I still don't think the fight will happen. Just curious though, are ufc fighters able to box outside the ufc while still under contract?

Have a feeling Conor will go back to the "Floyd is scared of a real fight" line after hearing this news
