Why did Tibau give Khabib such a tough time?

I would think Khabib would tool Johnson.

Style difference no doubt.

Tibau is one of if not the best at defending takedowns in the UFC, takedowns are the key to Khabib's entire game. Tibau is by definition, Anti-Khabib.

Before the Lauzon fight, Johnson looked to me like a former wrestler who had fallen in love with his movement and mediocre striking, while letting his TD/TDD skills fall by the wayside. Now he's actually a good, elusive striker. Tibau was a big test for his suspect TDD, and he passed with flying colors. Impressed with Michael Johnson.

Who knows. It will be one of those quirks we'll look back on like "How could Jon Jones lose a round against Stephan Bonnar?".

That was a terrible decision.
