  1. It is, after all, the"largest fight in UFC history."

    This occurred Saturday at UFC Fight Night 136 in Moscow, where former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk was a guest fighter. Right off the bat, first query, she had been requested for her forecast of Khabib vs. McGregor, and she gave a neutral reaction.

    I'm 50/50. I'm a large fan of Conor, and I am a huge fan of Khabib. Two different styles," Jedrzejczyk said. "As you saw, I do not predict a battle. I really don't want to forecast the fights. People can accomplish this. They could predict my fights, but I never do that. Anything and everything can happen in the fight. This is surely the battle of, what, such as the century? In MMA. So I can't wait to see two great warriors fighting each other. I am 50/50.
