Unironically late stoppage. I don't know how Tony stayed up but that was hard to watch.

Very sad, that would have been something. But man, Gaethje was perfect tonight!

McGregor vs Gaethje is the fight i want to see now. Winner can fight Khabib (and lose). But Connor vs Gaethje is the best fight in that division, i don't care what anyone says.

Gaethje Khabib doesn't interest me that much. His ground game isn't going to cause any issues for Khabib.

Strange decision from Tony to not wait for Khabib honestly. Both risk wise and financially. Style wise he's much better suited to fight Khabib than Gaethje imo.

Agree Gaethje Connor is a much more interesting fight. Or a good angle could be Tony v Connor to fight the winner of Khabib Gaethje

I love UFC but man again so many questionable decisions tonight - from both refs and judges. They really need to get on top of that. It's so frustrating

Based on what? He lost a striking match, he would be fighting Khabib on the ground.

Tony is a r***rd though. Who cuts weight for the sake of cutting. he cut weight 3 weeks ago to prove a point, then cut weight again 3 weeks later and took the beating of his life haha

Would have been a completely different fight.

Not saying Tony would definitely win, but he's freakish in where he can find holds and locks, there's always a huge risk to taking him down. He's been working with Eddie Bravo a lot, and you've seen the submissions, so you know he's comfortable on his back, probably more so than any other fighter.

His engine alone would have made him Khabib's most formidable opponent, as Khabib's submissions usually come after rounds of leg humping like a randy parasite. I love Khabib, but that shit simply wouldn't have worn Tony down.

Gaethje could also beat him, although I don't think he will. Gaethje's takedown defence and wrestling background put him in good stead to keep the fight standing... and if it stays standing, he wins.

My initial feeling was that he would tire and eventually get taken down, but after seeing him basically go the whole five rounds against Tony, I'm thinking this maybe something that he's addressed.

Such a an exciting division right now. Still wanna see Tony vs Khabib, plus McGregor is intelligent enough to come back with something different. He won a round off Khabib after all, and is apparently back to being focused... I'm not so sure a rematch would end so predictably.

I didn't see the earlier fights, but I think the Cruz decision was understandable and the Ferguson decision was absolutely necessary..

Ferguson... f***ing hell! Mind over matter to the point where his body was put to sleep on a number of occasions, and he could still somehow shake it off and stay on his feet. He must have been so disorientated... wouldn't be surprised if he's sustained some real f***ing damage from that fight.
