lol who told you khabib is like ali? :lol:


He seems to be the greatest in the sport history, correct? And undefeated in a harder sport with much more ways to go down.


yea you could definately make an argument for khabib in the GOAT debate, but hes not undisputed in my opinion, there are a lot of guys considered in that debate.

he is indeed undefeated, but you also have to take the competetion into account. only 13 of his 30 win were in the ufc, and i would consider 6 of these wins are vs top competition. look at the people Jon Jones and GSP faught, thats a whole different level.

dont get me wrong going undefeated in mma is nuts and i dont wanna come across as a hater, but its not as clear as ali. especially when you consider the impact that ali also had on society in general. Ali is a true icon.

Also Khabib is 32 years old, he is retired in his prime, you have to think why that is. i personally would not consider him the goat but im definately not against listening to arguments for him in that debate. hes 100% on the list just because of his record and domination, he lost maybe 1 or 2 rounds in his whole career thats hella impressive

Mike Tyson
I believe he wasn't educated on the situation. Many people could have been harmed not only financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually. We do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative that comes with that

Tate is so much better than most of the women in the UFC. She should get a belt shot real soon.

Holm is ranked no. 2 contender right now. I think Miesha takes a mid top 10 ranked opponent. Juliana Pena, Chaisson, McMann, Kunitskya?

I think Tyson was more dominant in his specific sport than Connor.

I predict Paul wins by KO. Paul is already ahead of most MMA fighters in terms of boxing.

Ferriera (Men's LHW) just tore a hammy 5 seconds into the fight on his back/plant leg while throwing a front kick. OMG.

I predict a 5th round TKO for Jake Paul and no I'm not buying that PPV, lol heck no. As for money, yeah I bet a little bit of money :D

I just started getting into the PFL as I was getting tired of watching Bellator when no UFC on TV. Who are the top fighters?

I just started watching the PFL myself. They’ll probably replay last night’s semifinal matches in its tournament for $6 million. Kayla Harrison is the big name in the woman’s division. Antonio Carlos, Jr., BJJ lightweight champ is the no. 1 at 155. Chris Wade from Long Island will face him in the championship fight.

Was that 1 judge blind giving it to Woodley, Woodley was so scared like his last few mma fights to let his hands loose
