  1. Let him fight Connor McGregor was drinking and it weakened him, Khabib is strong grappler but it is very very hard to knock a Mexican out, maybe Tony could beat him.

  2. Mr. Sonnen. Can you answer a question for me possibly? why does Dana White always stress that these fighters are independent contractors and they need to make their own way when it comes to press, advertising, popularity, money, health insurance? I'm not sure about the last one in health insurance specifically, but it sounds like something I've heard before. Remove it if I'm wrong on it. Cardenas in general just harps in harps that these guys are independent contractors.

    But then on the other hand he turns around every chance he gets. And says what he wants the fighters to do in many ways, what match he thinks they should be a part of, what weight class they should be apart of. I know that last guy that fought CM punk. Dana criticized pretty heavily because of the types of punches he was throwing. Dana thought he wasn't trying hard enough. All the way down to whether or not Dana thinks they flat out good fighters. Which he has done many many times.

    No I know Dana is outspoken and that's just who he is. But which is it are these spiders making their own way and are self-employed contractors, with Dana just a figure on their lives. Or is it whatever Dana wants whenever he wants in the self contractor thing is just an excuse? now I could have been wrong and many of the things I said here. I'm not the biggest fan. I'm new to MMA. but as an outsider looking in. It's just a weird situation from my view. How does it actually work and what is the truth that I'm missing? I came to you because….. Well you know why…. Gangster!! Well spoken, honest detail is what you do. Keep up the great work sir. I could listen to you tell a story about paint drying. Thanks again and I'll appreciate your answer! Your fan Don. It's not me in the picture. Lol. It's my girlfriend. Just don't want you to think I'm a girl with a guy's name. Lol

  3. Khabib has superseded all the sports figures in popularity world wide. Because of him ufc is actually a global brand. I don’t think the money matters or fighting again. He has the world stage now to make a difference. Obviously fighting more and winning more will raise his popularity which I think he would want to fight few more times to be the g.o.a.t in light weight…

  4. Khabib is the kind of fighter that will fight once every 5 year now when he has the belt…. Also if he fights Floyd in boxing he wont get a punch in. Such a farse. And ye Tony deserves everything he can get,respect

  5. Oh my God, there is so much wrong with this video that I can’t subscribe to Chael anymore. This guy cares so little about facts that it’s beyond belief. 1. He’s absolutely wrong about the seriousness of what Khabib did. 2. He refuses to acknowledge that Khabib’s team jumped in and attacked Conor inside the cage, which is beyond disgraceful. 3. Tyson bit a piece of Holyfield’s ear (a small piece, not the entire ear) in the rematch, not in the first fight, which Tyson lost. 4. He refuses to acknowledge that UFC can and should strip Khabib of the title and allow Tony to fight Conor or Poitier for the belt. (To be fair, they should let Tony fight the #11 contender for the belt, just like Khabib did). Chael thinks we live in a world where facts don’t matter but they only don’t matter because of charlatans like him. I’m out, GFY
