You forgot to put BJ Penn on there. If he is in shape and motivated no one can stop him
If you could blend Gaethje and Ferguson into one guy, that would be the guy to beat Khabib.
Honestly, I think Gregor is a tough fight for him. He has a better gas tank and his wrestling is excellent. It would be the best wrestler Khabib has ever faced.
This bear with a few months sprawl training...
eating a bonbon with brandy inside. that's how it starts...
(I mean that as a friendly joke)
GSP, IMO. Think he'd jab Khabib into oblivion.
Justin has an interesting skill set I'd like to see him face, same for Gillespie.
GSP. I just can't imagine anyone being able to take him down and hold him there for any length of time. That single leg that Khabib gets on everyone from way out would be a tough play on Georges. Too good of a jab and TDD.
agree. Gregor isn't going to be laying under Khabib and getting punched.
I want to see how his striking looks against Kevin Lee, but I think he's the most legit threat right now.
The only person to have won a round against him in the UFC
true but Conor had his chance and got mauled like the rest
Ring rust. Conor wins that fight 7/10 times
excuse excuse excuse~
Diaz didn't have ring rust even way longer inactivity ~ Conor fought Alvarez too after, and trained for FLoyd
Add Conor to your poll.
Ffs you have Charles Oliveira but no Conor.
Conor already lost.
Charles Oliveira is tied for most submissions in UFC history.
Calm down man, you are the troll remember, you can't be gotten to.
if you don't know that you're a troll, are you really a troll?
or are you just a pathetic human?
Aren't all trolls pathetic whether they know it or not?
UFC has him currently ranked at 13. Bad enough Al got a shot while being ranked 11th. His best win is probably over Jeremy Stephens four years ago. Fun guy to watch but Dan Hooker would be a bigger threat at this point.
Dan HOoker is same as any other opponents Khabib already faced there is not much of a threatening skills he possesses that Khabib haven't seen already. Also the rankings are wack, there are many cases where the rankings totally don't make sense. (like so and so beat so and so but he's lower in the rankings than so and so)
Oliveira's biggest weapon is his JuJitsu. He's got 15 Submissions in the UFC, many of them guillotines. That's the aspect that is gonna be threatening to Khabib.
plus Oliveira's active as of now in Khabib's division.
FYI, Fedor's first loss was to Werdum by JuJitsu.
Against Gregor: i think khabib is a better striker if stays on feet and in grappling exchanges I think khabib ends up on gregors back round after round.
Oliveira: cant handle pressure, probably the worst possible match up for charles in the ufc, he would get sooo broken, mauled into retirement.
Ferguson: doesnt have good tdd, would get mauled on the ground but has the chance to catch khabib with a good knee or something whrn kabibs coming in at the start of each round.
Gaetjthe: i would love to see how khabib would deal with his leg kicks. Khabib would probably push him up and hokd him against the fence rounr afted round, but he has best shot imo.
Gsp: the old gsp may have been able to jab and run for 5 rounds, but hr was a lot slower when he fought bisping. I think khabib brings too much pressure for him and breaks gsp, dominating the grappling.
