What have they said?

Gaethje: "I'm not even supposed to be here. This was supposed to be Tony Ferguson.

"I got that opportunity and I took it from him.

"I'm a performer. I always show up under the lights. That's what I do. On Saturday I will leave everything, give everything, and be proud of my performance."

Khabib: "They're all good when they stand up, but when I grab them it changes a little bit. Even if I try to take him down once and his defence is good, I've prepared myself to try to take him down 100 times."

Dana White, UFC president: "Khabib's a big superstar. But if he beats Justin, he's on his way to GOAT status.

"He's looking down the barrel of not only being the greatest to ever do it in this division but being the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world."
