Dominant round by Khabib, and mostly on the feet to boot. Justin already gassed, that doesn't bode well for him.

Khabib's round easily; Justin landed some sick kicks and a couple hard shots to the head, though.

Get your eyes checked, ref. Justin was in over his head, looked out of sorts in there.

He's got an amazing cycle of aggression, rest, aggression, rest, etc. What a cunt to fight against, nice.

For sure, he was huffing and puffing as the round was ending.
I didn't see Khabibs level of exhaustion from that 1st round camera angle, that's why I was asking. Thanks dut.

Well it will be interesting the amount of $$$ required to bring him out of retirement, or he keeps to his word. :messenger_confused:

Normally this last fight stuff is about getting a better contract, but with Khabib you can't be sure - guys pretty stoic and without his dad, maybe he's done for good. Dana must have just pooped himself a little.

Pound 4 pound #1 now.

He did that to Gaethje, wrestling on a different stratosphere. Was worried about his mental state. Damn. Sorry to see him go.

Justin seems like a solid dude. He really is just a fighter for hire. He's in there for money so he's gonna throw his fists around and whatever happens, happens.

What an emotional fight, even from the beginning of the fight you can tell Khabib had so much stake even he was nervous. Justin did pretty well as far as keeping Khabib in check at least until he was forced on the ground. He kept talking about his defence wrestling, he probably could've done more. But what an animal Khabib is, he's just too strong.

Retiring in his prime. Damn.

I understand the family is hurting but maybe his mother will reconsider over time. A GSP-Khabib payday would be worth like 1% of Dagestan's GDP lol.
