    Kenny Florian has a hot take: Ryan Hall can beat Khabib Nurmagomedov.

    Florian recently spoke with Kajan Johnson and Shakiel Mahjouri on the Pull No Punches podcast. The three-time UFC title challenger was asked to name the fighters who could present the most potent threat to Nurmagomedov’s undefeated streak.

    “Ryan Hall,” Florian stated. “It sounds crazy because he’s a 145-pounder, but you either need to be an absolute ninja on the ground, right? You need someone who can always put you on defense — someone like a Ryan Hall on the ground. Or you need someone who can absolutely keep it on the feet.”

    Florian and…

    khabib has pretty powerful striking he dropped conor iirc he would just sprawl and brawl with ryan hall and KO him. ryan hall as a 145 lbr is also going to have a weaker chin going to a higher weight class.

    Ok pretty random but I guess one can make the case if you have good bottom game, has good chance to beat Khabib. We really haven’t seen khabib vs a good bottom game guy, I think all these guys have a good chance to beat Khabib.

    That would be a damn tall task even in straight grappling.

    Khabib would rightfully be heavily favored, but it would be naive to think Ryan wouldn’t have a chance to get a submission. He is every bit as good at leg locks as Khabib is at grappling. Hall brings such unorthodox angles and entries, that it would be awkward for even the best fighters in the world to defend. No matter the mismatch in any aspect of MMA it would be crazy to disregard his ability or chances against anyone.

    Khabib would keep it standing and kill Ryan. And I like Ryan a HELLUVA lot more than Khabib.

    The last time I saw a one dimensional 155'er this over rated, it was the guy Khabib beat for the title.

    I think he's right
    I have played out this fight 6 million times (like Dr strange) and all but one time I have hall catching him.
