  • Fan's perspective should be Poirier versus Olivera for undisputed belt (not Dana's go-to money fight). Gaethje versus Chandler for #1 spot afterwards (put as co-main on same card). McGregor versus Ferguson. Hooker versus RDA. Keen for those fights.

  • bruh the division is better without him, yes hes a fucking beast but also predictably boring and he will suffer the same fate as mighty mouse. Too good for his division and no one even cared when they left because people want to see competitive fights again not one sided sleep fests

  • Not comparable. Khabib trashed the division. No one came close. Hendrix flat out beat GSP and was robbed.

  • I agree with Khabib. As good as they are, none of these guys are good enough to take on Khabib. The division should try to move on rather than trying to continuously get the champ back.

  • I kind of wonder why we haven¨t heard who is going to fight for the lightweight title? As i stil see khabib in the rankings. Guess he is not really retiering?

  • I'm not sure how well khabib does against Olivera , i always thought a masterclass bjj or striker with great scrambles has the most chance against khabib.

  • Fighters retire all the time Khabib is the only one who didn't retire to get a bigger contract he doesn't care about money Dana looks silly telling Khabib how big a second fight with Conor would be after saying "if you think about retiring you probably should" he sounds like an actual bum asking for a cigarette. im happy for my boy i enjoy seeing him out having fun eating good food playing soccer even. When i saw Khabib tell DC they can go get a cappuccino and some fried chicken now that made me smile. Khabib has nothing left to prove the Khabib vs GSP fight makes no damn sense people are ridiculous for wanting that fight now. The division is stacked there is many good potential match ups. Poirier deserves title shot he can let Chandler, Gaethje Oliviera and even Conor fight it out for the other spot a lot of interesting things can happen Khabib is done he deserves his rest.

  • It'll be fine but like.. Everyone will always say "well you never beat khabib" no champion will ever be so good and dominant. Khabib is too good

    NANA26 päivää sitten
  • Its like when Jordan left the NBA, anyone can win it now. Which is very interesting in its own right, but there is something to miss when someone so dominant leaves.

    Kash Zombi3Kash Zombi326 päivää sitten
  • Man .. 1 guy does not make or break a whole division. That's taking so much away from the other guys who have worked just as hard. The top 15 guys in 155 are all amazing fighters.

  • It'll be OK. But there's not going to be 1 champ for a long time like Khabib can hold it. It's going to be a new champ every few title fights.

    spafro101spafro10128 päivää sitten
  • It can. 155 without Khabib is now fully competitive. Before, 2-15 just had amazing moments but we knew none of them mattered or would he champ. So yeah it can

    Cregan StarkCregan Stark28 päivää sitten
  • If this were any other division I think there might be a cause for concern BUT lightweight still has Gaethje, Chandler, Oliveira, Poirer, Mcgregor, Ferguson, RDA, Felder, Hooker, Daruish (one of my favorites over the years, and even Kevin Lee. Let alone the tens of nonranked lightweights, the whole division is still such a murderers row of talent that I wouldn’t be surprised if it keeps its level of competition for years to come

    kumagawa misogikumagawa misogi28 päivää sitten
  • Simply yes. There will always be a star and light weight is jam packed with contenders. The khabib jump was sort of like the jump from Franklin to Anderson and Matt Hughes to GSP. Ronda to Amanda. It’ll take some time but there will be someone better coming up. You have Chandler, Olivera and others that are great and coming up. LW is going to be fine with Khabib gone.

  • Conor built the division. It not only survived but grew very much without him. Hence so will it without khabib. Dustin poirier is definitely a star in the making or I would dare say he is already a star. UFC knows how to make stars n make their business thrive.

  • Can it thrive w/out Khabib? Yes. Cause lets be honest, it will be more competetive now and besides, Conor brings in a lot of views on it so that will bring in positivity on the economical aspect which is alll that matter at the end of the day.

  • Such a bummer if he doesn’t come back. Khabib is a great champ but please leave him out of the GOAT conversation. GSP, Jones, and Silva dominated the number 1 contenders for years. They didn’t say “cmon I’d beat all those guys, Dana” they let their careers speak for them. As usual, the majority of the vocal current generation does no homework and makes ridiculous claims about this sport. 29-0 is ultra impressive but quality over quantity is way more important

    Emerson WinterEmerson Winter28 päivää sitten

    jamie Mccarthyjamie Mccarthy29 päivää sitten
    • @jamie Mccarthy fair enough bro I apologise as well I love MMA and I think us fans can get too caught up in the hype sometimes I mean conor and khabib make millions of dollars they don't need me or you to speak for them.

      Śtrádá ClimáŚtrádá Climá25 päivää sitten
    • @Śtrádá Climá yes, I wish that wasn’t the case as it makes the rest look bad. But, if you think about it, every nationality, race, religion all have bad apples within their communities, and I try to see the best in humanity until proven otherwise. I think it’s education and experience. People fear what they don’t know. As far as McGregor fans, I think sometimes they try to take on his old persona of talking smack but don’t realize that’s 💯 showmanship and behind the scenes (when he’s sober) seems to be a very very nice guy. And, it comes across ignorant on their behalf because they aren’t on a stage, performing, or fighting, they’re usually anonymous social media trolls. So, on behalf of true fight fans, and good people, I would like to apologize for any ignorant remarks about race or religion anyone has had to endure. It’s not cool and it’s frankly quite cowardly to do it while hiding behind some alias.

  • I think it's a little bit debatable to say LHW is thriving. Blachowicz vs Adesanya is a function of Adesanya not Blachowicz. It still feels weird to consider Jan the champ, and he's not even having a title defense before this fight.
