More specifically, Melendez will probably get the chance to do it first, but Khabib is without a doubt the next big thing, one fight away from everyone swooning over the undefeated monster from the East.
Khabib has a long way to go IMO. He should have lost the fight to Tibau.

but if your mind set was the same as others, you came into the fight heavily undestimateing pettis

and thats what happen to ben.

i bet he didnt prepare for submissions, but still no excuse
Well he competed in a bjj torunament in July or June where he won double medals, so I'm assuming he has been training jiu jitsu frequently.

Only a Monetarist wrestler, who knows the exact correct number and rate of takedowns that should be in circulation within a given MMA fight can overcome Pettis, IMO.

Point-grabbing and round-grabbing is and always will be a takedown-spamming phenomena.
