His striking ability, and take down defense will cause Khabib lots of trouble. I expect an all out war.

That said, I'm picking Khabib to win, but I wouldn't be the least bit shocked to see Gaethje pull it off.

I haven't been this stoked for an MMA card in quite awhile. I'm also looking forward to seeing Robert Whitaker in action again. He's been in some great scraps over the years. Entertaining fighter!
Thing with MMA is you don't have to be a better striker than an opponent to be able to out-strike him. Khabib has a massive takedown threat at every moment of the fight so that puts strikers off. It's how he outstruck even a highly technical striker like Conor.
