Got to be the worst prediction/joke of 2019 already, here’s the correct one.
-TapChicken does not win a UFC Fight in 2019
-Diego Reyes becomes a star
-Rematch won’t happen, the fight was one sided af, Tony v Khabib will happen, Khabib wins it easily after a mauling session

I agree,if someone can challenge Khabib, then Tony. Buuuut, Tony is to wild, no one punch knock out power and kevin lee took him down easily. Khabib will work him on the ground at will, tire him and take a boring easy decision.

I’m not necessarily looking past him. I just think a lot of people are going to very surprised with some of the results in his upcoming fights. Namely the Khabib fight if people thinks it’s going to be a back and forth. It’s either going to be complete domination as usual or Tony
