John dgafok: My analysis of ufc 242 poirier vs khabib.
Poirier has way more skill set and fight iq than he displayed, that was evident to me from round 1.
Poirier has great boxing with a wide range of punching combos and khabib knows that so because he is not as good a striker as poirier he is not the type the stand and trade so he keeps distance and waits for an opportunity to advance and shoot for takedown. Imo poirier should have been way more aggressive and pressure khabib to work harder to keep his distance. While on back foot he can't generate power with his strikes nor gather anywhere near as much momentum to shoot forward for takedown. That means his advance will be much weaker and slower for poirier to counter with a knee like masvidal did against askren or elbows. Im not gonna dissect the whole fight right now as i will watch it a few times first.
For now i will say that mentally and heart wise poirier displayed a detrimental weakness that he hasn't fixed. He showed it against connor too. Basically when its the big stage fights he bottles it in mind and heart. Its not that he doesn't possess mental strength and heart, it just seems to elude him when he needs it most. If dustin can develop that strength after this loss I'd say he could beat khabib and tony. Even get his revenge on connor.
Even tho khabib won the fight and he is a savage at what he excels at i respect dustin more and would genuinely like to see him attain gold like bisping did. He's a veteran and come a long way in the game.
Last thing. After seeing that fight I'm more certain ferguson will take khabibs belt from him. Tony will pressure the fuck out of khabib and no one can question tonys cardio, deffo not mind ir heart too.

John dgafok in reply to Rice Rice Baby: Hehe nat. You inspired me to start posting some dishes i make to be fair. You've posted loads and tuck into very easilly. I love my food as you know and very self sufficient so i like to make things myself. Can make whatever flavours and add whatever fruit i like.
Shows you can still eat stuff that's considered bad for us but made healthy it's a different matter 😊

John dgafok: I've gained 7 to 8 lbs lean mass since last summer and yes still hope to compete at least once before end if this year. Twice next year and that's it. Competing was never something i envisioned doing but i thought fuck it, it will be an experience and to win 1 I'd be happy with.
