    So, do we crown another white champ on Saturday? Reminder that this is a day card as it is in Dubai.

    Cheering for Poirier but Khabib is a tough out with his wrasslin' and ground & pound. Dustin does look a bit thicker than usual so maybe he can stop the takedowns.

    Other than that just an ok card, both from a fights perspective and the amount of white fighters. I would like to see Paul Felder do well.

    Poirier gets subbed in round 3. Felder wins his fight.

    Definitely want to see how Khabib does against someone who can stop the takedown and light him up standing. Ferguson? Gaethje? Gillespie?

    Glad Felder won but I dont see him ever fighting for the belt.

    They had AC issues there in Abu Dhabi, and had to fight in a big tent. I don't think it was an accident.

    They do the same in Brazil. Both Brian Stann and Gian Villante mentioned this. Gives an advantage to those used to such heat.
