This is such a shit show... I cannot believe this is real. 
Tony "I kick steel pipes" Ferguson is out with a leg injury.
Conor "Stay ready" McGregor  is all of a sudden not ready.
Max "Sacraficed" Holloway, too injured to fight Frankie Edgar last week, contemplating surgery, now magically healthy enough to fight Khabib on 6 days notice  
Are we supposed to believe this is going to be competitive?  :roll:

Ortega might of been more interesting.

I wonder if GSP would return for Khabib. That would be a good scrap, but I don't think George would make it down to 155 after the bulk-up.

By Saturday night/Sunday morning, we'll probably forget about Tony and talk about how exciting the fight between Max & Khabib was and how it was beyond our expectations. Hopefully

According to UFC stats Holloway has 1 inch height advantage, 1 inch reach disadvantage and 2 inch leg advantage (71/70, 69/70, 42/40). He is not really that tall for LW. He looks pretty strong at the moment though.

Holloway can surprise with fast and aggressive boxing, aka Michael Johnson. He does not rely on leg kick as Barbosa, that is good for him. But anything else than 5 rounds gnp from Nurmagomedov, is a big surprise for me, which I don't think can happen. Nurmagomedov is not Rockhold and this is not similar to Diaz vs McGregor fight. Hope for the best.

This fight makes no sense. They shouldve just rescheduled tony/kab.

The UFC is going to try everything possible to get rid of Khabib before McGregor returns to the octagon.
First he has to win against Holloway and afterwards against Ferguson. If he beats both he’ll defend his belt against Conor in Russia. :like

Conor got a LW title shot after he beat Aldo once. Max is getting a shot after he beat Aldo twice. Chael got a LHW title shot after losing at MW. So why not?

Damn this is sooo tricky. Just made a  comment about some stats that came out about short notice fights ,and the fighters who took the fight short notice if im not mistaken had a higher win percentage (could be wrong). Either way max legit has only a punchers chance in the beginning of every round(if he makes it out the first). If not Khabib will rape and finish him, Barboza a legit 55er couldnt hang..small max isnt gonna be able to. I like him and he would be legendary for winning, but i dont wanna see max vs Mcfinnegan. I kno that little bitch will come back so quick if max wins, if khabib wins he will stay away.
