Yeah Khabib is just going to be too overwhelming for Tavares to handle. I personally think Gleison is better than Tavares, the UFC just wants to build Khabib slowly it appears.

I Know Khabib is a good fighter but Tavares has looked very good lately and is ever improving I'm thinking he pulls off a big win here.

Am I missing something? Since when everyone thinks this guy is so good? I thought that he was this huge prospect who came to the UFC, and let down everyobdy. His fights are boring, his stand-up technique is horrible, the only thing he has going for him is that judo, and maybe some power. He could beat Tavares thou, that guy has never impressed me.

Okami-Belcher part 2. Anticipating a lot of time in the clinch and ground.

Tavares has become a safety first fighter ever since Roller knocked him to oblivion.

Plenty of people are hyping Khabib up, he hasn't shown me anything that really makes me believe he's all that but I don't think Thiago is that great either.

I still dont know what to make of Khabib. Tibau seemed to forget to fight in their match up, so that didnt really tell me a whole ton. I feel like Tavares is a less talented, smaller version of Tibau, so this fight will probably go Khabib's way. I would like to see him fight someone equally agressive, maybe give him Diego Sanchez if he gets by Gomi.

That was a nice uppercut, then the elbow ground and pound was all she wrote.
