Yeah honestly I was iffy about choosing whittaker as well, but honestly I see whittaker winning. Will be a great fight regardless.Cannonier will win. Knocked out his last three opponents, but his last fist was two years ago. He's a natural heavyweight fighting at middleweight
Kamarudeen 'Kamaru' Usman is also a muslim UFC champion at welter weightI believe Khabib and Cannonier will win their fight.
Plus, I want them to win because Cannonier will fight Israel next if he wins this fight which will be super entertaining and Khabib needs to stay undefeated because he's our only Muslim champion in the UFC.
Not really, folk wrestling is terrible for MMA. They naturally give up their back. Look how Khabib ragdolled the much bigger Pay Healy, who was a wrestlerFolk wrestling is probably the best wrestling style to match against Sambo. Its going to be a good fight, but I dont see either just dominating. Justin can do leg kicks on khabib and stay in the center of the octogan not close to the cage he have a chance.
the problem with Justin is that he hardly ever used his wrestling in mma and khabib already fought high level strikers like Conor or Barboza.
I got khabib in decision
