Who wins Khabib vs Ferguson; or Ortiz vs Jones!; spiritual moments; Conor McGregor’s 2020 and dancing on TV, yes or no from our top four pros.
Honorio: That’s a tough call. Ferguson is dangerous on his back and feet but I’m going to put my money on Khabib.
TJ: Fights that are this hyped, I try not to get too worked up over. They always seem to be a dud. My prediction, man, such a hard one to choose, Tony Ferguson via split decision.
Phil: I think it’s a cursed fight and it will fall through again. If it does happen though, I think Khabib will grind him out.
Max: Man, Khabib is undefeated and Tony has won a million straight. I think it’s going all the way to a split decision… and Tony takes it.
Honorio: Tito Ortiz is just being delusional. There is no way he can defeat Jon Jones.
TJ: Tito’s silly. That’s just crazy.
Phil: Tito is working the press there, I think. He would be crazy to think he could… maybe he is crazy though.
Max: He’s trippin’. That’s all I can say!
Honorio: I never heard that before! I would say I don’t have any spiritual moments like Marquardt.
TJ: When I was training for my fight against Jake Hager, I’d just finished running and a crazy chill took over. I had a moment of complete confidence. I started screaming and beating my chest. It was a cool moment. Spiritual? Not sure, but i’ll never forget it.
Phil: I often take some time for spiritual exercises, especially meditation and cold water swims. I don’t believe in God but there is definitely something at work out there.
Max: I do, actually. 13 years ago I was at Reggae on the River Festival in Humboldt County. We were hanging out at the end of the night and I heard a message in my head. “You need to start fighting”. The rest was history.
Honorio: It’s really hard to tell anymore. I think Conor lost his hunger in the fighting game. He is gonna get smashed by young and hungrier fighters. I don’t think he can fight multiple times next year.
TJ: Yes. It’s something I hope happens. I’m a big McGregor fan. it’s always a good show and pre-fight fun when McGregor is on the card.
Phil: Who knows with that guy? He may end up in jail before it’s all said and done.
Max: Multiple is more than one right? (Laughs) So yeah. Once in January then one later in the year.
Honorio: There is no way!
TJ: Oh, hell yes. Life’s a dance and you have to enjoy every minute.
Phil: Yeah, I would love to do that, but I would prefer Total Warrior.
Max: I will just say this… Hennything is possible.
