Question on Khabib

Recommended Posts

If NSAC lays the ban hammer on him can he still fight in Russia in April?

Not sure how all that works or if Dana has the balls to put him on a Russia card after the Nevada suspension.

I share the same opinion as sober.

Also, I do believe Khabib being 'banned' for a reasonable amount of time would work well for New FC. 

He is not a drawer for the casuals, he is just too dominant in the division with only maybe one or two guys able to give him a challenge (Ferg being the main one imo).

Khabib being suspended and stripped for lets a year would do wonders for baldy who would be able to have his biggest cash cow (Conor) with a chance of holding that belt again.

Whats your guess on the possible implications? They're hardy the epitome of morality so I wouldn't put it past them if they could get away with it. Look at Bisping being given the Gastelum fight, he was banned on legit health reasons.

This is spot on. 

Your points on the ban are interesting and logical. I suspect any ban may already be served or at least served by his next fight.

Hes gonna retire anyway soon. He already smashed everyone hea faced. Unless he fights Tony, theres really no interesting fight for him left at 155lbs and even then he smashes that weirdo.

What? Ferguson, Holloway, Poirier, etc.

Not to mention he can grow a pair and move up a division too and not be a Jones

Lol.  Ferguson was getting stomped by LOLKEVINLEE before wrapping his legs around his head and winning via cowardice. Not to mention Pettis was knocking his eyebrows off, which is #sad. 

 

Poirier? Lol. 

 

Don't try to troll the Poster of the YEAR 2018. 

 

I heard the same thing from you idiots about EVERYONE Khabib has fought or potential matchups. Durr durr durr Kevin Lee, durr durr durr Conor McGregor, durr durr durr Barboza, durr durr durr Michael Johnson. 

 

Alhamdulilah, he SMASHES all of your favorite fighters.

maybe other organizations,  but not the new UFC. If they see dollar signs, theyll do whatever it takes to make the show go on.   if they are willing to relocate an event on less than a weeks notice because their guy got popped for being on steroids, theyll pretty much try anything at this point if dana sees dollar signs reflecting off of his bald gleaming dome.

theyll host mcnuggets vs the great khabib 2 in japan if dana sees potential money, and the commission has a problem with it.

Also, LOL at @PATSTER bringing up the "moving up" bullchit. They're all weight cutting cans, stop acting like theres an advantage.

 

Its a fight, get over it. 

No ****, all I'm saying is it's admirable for guys to take challenges at higher divisions, especially if he truly thinks there is nobody else to fight

Move up to 170lb were they have four champions, a racist, and your brother? LOL. 

 

I agree he should move up, but move up 205lbs and smash Jones.

I agree. Ferg is the only guy for him at 155 and his manager already said it aint happening.

Sad because I was dying for to watch this fight

It is not Khabibs fault that the 155 divisio got no wretlers to compete with him.

I still think Ferg is the only guy who can bring legit problems to Khabin but even that we dont know for sure.

I liked Lee's odds too but his cardio would probably put him in trouble after round 3.

I doubt they want to get in bad with commissions because it could jeopardize future events IMO.  Especially the NSAC

I agree on the morality issue. The UFC (and certainly its parent company) have typical corporate ethics - profits and self-preservation above all else. However, it's those very business ethics that prevent them from letting a suspended fighter compete.

Even though we've legitimately criticized the current UFC for sacrificing long term stability in favor of short term gains, not even these folks are that short sided. They know that the business they'd do by letting a suspended fighter compete (e.g. Khabib in Russia) is in no way worth the damage it would cause in their relationship with the NAC. Given that they're based in Las Vegas and hold the lion's share of shows there, flaunting a NAC suspension would be disastrous for them.

Smaller promotions in other countries that are unlikely to ever do business in Nevada (or anywhere in the US for that matter) are more likely to allow a suspended fighter to compete.

Now, what I think would be interesting is if one state's athletic commission didn't respect the suspensions of other state commissions. So far it's more or less a gentleman's agreement that the commissions will acknowledge one another and not cut each other off at the knees when it comes to punishing fighters. However, that doesn't mean it couldn't ever happen, particularly in the case of a small promotion that functions only within the confines of that state.

They literally just moved an event to accommodate a fighter who couldn't be licensed in Nevada due to another failed drug test.

Zuffa UFC wouldn't let him fight if Nevada said no. WME UFC gives zero ****s about the integrity of the sport.

155 lbs has plenty of wrasslers. Those of us who think the Dagescrandy is an overrated can were getting behind Kevin Lee to be the man to shut down his wrestle **** style, unfortunately Kevin ran into a wALl on his way there and is permanently derailed at that weight class.

It's never going to happen because the NSAC will probably give him a slap on the wrist, but even if they don't, it's not likely to be longer than a year and Khabib fights once every 24 months on average anyway.

Honestly he should just get Dana to make the 165 class and rape Georges there and become champ champ.

 

Then if Woodley doesnt fake another injury give him the fluffy white hat night he's been begging for and retire as champchampchamp.

George would jab him for 25 minutes and make it look easy.

I say that as someone who hates George.

I don't know the logistics of the agreement but you'd think Dana would be more inclined to have let that slide with Bisping since it was likely one of his last fights.

no they would not let him fight in russia in april... the "ban hammer" would be a 1 year suspension, most likely he will get 6 months and a 200K fine. The ufc will book him when hes cleared to fight, they will probably opt for a Poirer v Ferguson interim anyway because it gives them another headliner with a "title" without having to waste a real title fight. Khabib is a prize fighter now, you can say whatever you want about how hardcore he is etc, the dude already started calling out floyd, then his dad started quoting Dollar figures for a conor rematch etc.. He will fight Tony, Georges, or Conor. Prob has 2-3 fights left in his career

Yeah for a guy that was so critical of Conor's approach a lot of it seems to have rubbed off on him in one fight.

He needs to fire that Ali Abdelaziz dude talks far too much for someone that doesn't fight and I reckon some of the stuff he's putting out actually hurts Khabib's image like shooting down the Tony fight.

But that's what you get when you employ a fooking terrorist.

he got a taste of that sweet multi million dollar nectar and doesnt want to go back to the old days of smashing cans for pennies on the dollar, thats what rubbed off on him. 

imagine he ends up getting offered a fight with Peahead or something. he will turn it down and beg conor or even Nate diaz for the money now.

No I mean ever.  Regardless of fighter.  Especially not the NSAC, they wouldn't risk future events in their home state because they wanted to disregard the commission.  The Jon Jones venue change isn't a good comparison.  California commission was already familiar with the issue, Nevada must have felt like they couldn't do their due diligence in time.

I just want to know when we can stop acting like Nate Diaz is a star. Nate Diaz moves the needle when he's fighting Conor. Make Diaz vs anybody besides Conor, he does 200k buys tops.

If Khabib is suspended, Max can kill Tony in the cage...then face Khabib when he's set free.
