The highly-anticipated Khabib-Conor fight is expected to become the biggest promotion in the history of Ultimate Fighting Championship. Khabib’s manager said the tentative date for this gigantic showdown is on October 6 but the UFC stressed that it could be in a different schedule.
Even though there is no final deal yet, fans cannot contain their excitement about the fight between the Notorious and the Eagle. MMA fans took to Twitter to express their approval of this upcoming bout.
Let’s take a look at these crazy reactions from the Twitter-verse about the proposed Khabib-Conor fight:

Will Conor vs Khabib be made? I still think this is a fight way too risky to be made for Conor, Dana must recognise this. However, for some reason, I do think this fight is going to be made. Didn’t think so before.

This is going to be unpredictable
I think if Conor vs Khabib goes ahead then Conor can likely do the damage with the left hand but I think if Khabib takes him down we might never see him again. I just hope we get a war and see something special man
