Khabib's coach and father confirmed it! **** yeah I'm so glad the UFC pulled their finger out and worked this out, if it's not a 5 rounder im going to be pissed! this is a huge fight for the division and the sport, possibly one of my most anticipated fights I've ever wanted to see. this will build up a HUGE fight with conor later in the year.

tony ferguson vs khabib nurmagomedov for 5 rounds (presumably)..... mma fights don't get any better than this guys..

odds have been released: http://www.oddschecker.com/ufc-mma/khabib-nurmagomedov-v-tony-ferguson/winner

ferguson is currently 2.75, put several units on this, it should trade lower. the line was closer early last year before they were originally supposed to fight. lots of people see this as a pick'em fight, I think khabib should be favored slightly but not by this much. ferguson can cause khabib problems on the feet and he has a vastly better guard and overall ground game than michael johnson and most other ppl he has fought. ferg's scrambles are great also which could bring his possible cardio advantage into play as it's scheduled for 5 rounds for some random belt.

ferguson already down too 2.4, such an obvious price change.

a lot of people saying this is the highest quality lightweight fight ever, and I'm not inclined to disagree, this fight represents the spearhead of the evolution of mma, such contrasting styles are represented here. this fight is definitely one case where a interim belt is fine, no one really cares about the iterim belt, the fighters included, it's 100% just to make it a 5 round fight which this deserves to be. this is the true main event on sunday, woodley/wonderboy 2 is going to be great and is one of the highest skill lvl fights in it's own right, but it doesn't match up to this one imo.

I'm leaning woodley, and I don't have a clue why wonderboy ko is shorter than woodley ko, it doesn't make sense. weird event as I have virtually no leans bar the main event.

very disappointment ferguson vs khabib is cancelled..

No surprise Kebab pulls out again. McGregor was right about him. Silly
Report sofaking March 5, 2017 2:24 AM GMT
Surprised Thompson is favourite. I'll have a small back of Woodley.  And Overeem to beat Hunt at 1.75. Hunt's a bit over the hill.

Hoping Wonderboy wins though as I don't really like Woodley. Silly

I worked late and then stayed up for the main event and was highly disappointed. First fight was great. This one both afraid to lose. Still think the wrong decision was made but if no fighter could win then both losing would have been the correct result here. It was terrible.

im only just getting over the disappointment of khabib vs ferguson getting cancelled, that card was rubbish, main event was terrible. I thought WB edged it but the knockdown at the end made woodley's case. teymur vs lando was cool though, I don't like how many shots lando ate though, he's still so young too. rashad needs to retire, I couldn't believe I was watching a former champion. overeem with a nasty KO on hunt...I didn't like this fight in the first place, both guys are way too over the hill, hunt looks a differfent fighter from a few years ago, I'm confident he could easily of won this fight a few years ago...but yeah **** this event.

Yeah it was one of the worst PPV cards I've seen.  UFC are kind of lost now that McGregor is on a break and Rousey has been found out.
