In addition, the panel discusses the significance of the undisputed lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje this Saturday on Fight Island, what else sticks out on the UFC 254 fight card, the co-main event between Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier and what result would be better for business.
