    Al was swinging for the fences when he had opportunities, saying he fought 'not to win' is absurd. He was just out classed and unlike Conor he didn't have months to prepare for Khabib, he had 24 hours. He performed far better than Conor.

    Conor was definitely provided some very favorable match making on his way up.

    You can tell how happy Al was when Khabib won...

    Gave him much more credibility... Rightfully so...

    People forget how talented he is, this guy also beat Kevin Lee and Jorge Masvidal...

    He doesn't fight because he hates the UFC pay structure and makes more money selling houses...

    Al should shut the fuck up he was mauled by the same guy and Conor KO's him.

    Not a fanboy at all. No rooting interest in anyone but GSP and Gegard.

    Not too mention he had like, what, 1 day to prepare for Khabib + a 5 round fight.

    Al is a good wrestler and has good cardio. Can box and is a fighter by nature. I'd never count him out

    In hindsight I think the only guys to really beat al are guys that grapple better than him, I think him vs Conor is a fun fight that well probably never get to see

    Dear lord Khabib fans really are trying to push the Iaquinta GOAT narrative because his community college wrestling gave Khabib some issues.

    It will be very interesting to see how Lee handles Al in the rematch, Lee was just 21 years old when they fought.

    That young age is especially interesting because Lee had only wrestled for 5 years of his life at that point while Al had closer to 15 years, yet Lee was already the better grappler. It speaks to the talent of Lee, and we will see how far he has some in the past 4.5 years, plus it gives another perfect common opponent comparison with Khabin in addition to Barboza.

    I hope Lee wins and we eventually see the ultimate showdown of Khabib vs Lee. I might favor Lee in a 3 rounder but definitely Khabib in 5.

    too bad Al still has to have a day job while Conor's grandkids will be set for life.

    Al never even tried to beat Khabib, it was a zero risks, just trying to survive from the get go.
    Completely cowardly approach, much rather they'd have the opportunity to someone who actually believed they could win and went for it and got finished in the first.
