I'm not necessarily proud of this but I'm gonna leave it here anyways.

I've seen Sharipov's and Magomed's but having seen him fight a couple times, I can assure everyone Zabit is twice the man any of them were.

Zabit should fight these 2-2 cans every month until the ranked fighters are shamed into facing him.

He is I, and I am him


I didn't know that Zabit was a sanda world champ. I vaguely recall the walk-in discussion saying he'd done sanshou before.
I'd mentioned before in the kickboxing thread that there's a big Muslim nation presence in sanshou, but I didn't know that Dagestan had a really big training camp for the sport:

A shorter documentary on Muslim Salikhov which doesn't cover a lot on trasitioning from sanshou to MMA, but still cool:

I can't stop thinking about Khabib and Tony.

I think Kevin Lee showed us that Khabib is gonna be able to take Tony down. Tony's takedown defense isn't that good. But there's a ton of tape on Khabib at this point and he often goes for the same positions.

Tony and Eddie bravo are in the back room watching tape with a four foot bong between them brainstorming and they just might come up with something. Khabib is likely going to be able to establish some of his favorite top positions. The question is what happens after that. Eddie's invented several sweeps, submissions, and even entirely new control positions that get used regularly, if anyone can do it it's him. It's just so loving hard to imagine beating Khabib by playing to his strengths.

i think khabib was starting to look a bit tired in the 3rd round vs barboza. wonder how he'll do against a more relentless fighter like tony and if he'll gas out in the 4th and 5th. if he doesn't gas i don't see tony having a chance, khabib's top control is too smothering

Khabib has a ton of options: pull out due to mysterious medical issue, pull out due to weight cut, pull out due to shredded knees. And with a fighter this creative he could surprise everyone by having cancer or even AIDS.

Tony is gonna try to strike at range or drop elbows from guard if he gets taken down.

We're all doomed

Galore Bofando did the cool slam KO on Conor McGregor's friend. I also did not remember there being a man named Bibby Nash, and it's actually Bobby Nash and I don't recall seeing any of the three fights he was knocked out in.

If he lost to Bisping a second time I believe Luke Rockhold would simply cease to exist. He would be erased from the timeline. If you tried to watch any of his fights the titles would be like "Chris Weidman Vs. ∆∆∆∆ ∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆ full fight HD" and when you clicked on the video, where Rockhold should be there would just be a jumble of static. We'd all collectively wonder who was middleweight champion between Chris Weidman and Michael Bisping but his name would never come forth. It would sit on the tips of tongues trying to explain a man who was never there, except...in The Twilight Zone.

Tony should do what GSP did to BJ (not grease himself to a mirror sheen to the extent it makes his mom horny, but he should do that too) since Khabib showers in his underwear at AKA to make sure nobody sees his dick

thats probably his best route to victory but khabib is an experienced athlete by now. he must surely already be aware that hiding his dick from everybody just makes them want to look at it even more, so i think hes probably already prepared for that outcome in much the same way that aldo and anderson, who prefer to strike, are prepared for ground fighting. this is the problem an athlete like tony faces when the only path to victory is an unconventional one, in trying to put your opponent in an awkward position you must also leave your comfort zone yourself

BJ and his camp were complaining about it at the time, and a few mma outlets wrote a bit about it, I don't think it was ever proven though.
