Can see this fight going either way...

Split decision victory for....I don't know!

Edit: Anyone wants to predict how many times the commentators say

"Fighters need to take weight cutting lessons from Tibau"
"He is HUGEEEE"
"Tibau has mastered the art of weight cutting"

It's good to see Tibau being more aggressive in this fight. To me, it seemed like he was the superior fighter against Khabib, and he only lost due to his lack of aggression. I think he might know that too. Hopefully his conditioning holds up though.

Tibau relies on size more than skill. Nice to see his ridiculous weight cut is costing him.

Yah my instructor estimate he cuts from 180+ which was my first thought. He is NOT a 155er...haha!

Moderation should be the key for Tibau. His lack of aggression can cost him, but his frame and weight cut don't allow him to over do it either.

Maybe after this fight Tibau can stop being a coward and give WW a try.

I'm starting to think age is catching up with Tibau. He may need to move up to 170 to salvage his career. He's been dreadful.
