Well not many fighters are eager to fight Khabib. I can't think of anyone at LW that would be a heavy favorite over Khabib. Imo Khabib is the best at 155 today, but it isn't his fault he hasn't gotten to prove it yet. He will though, in due time. He's a nightmare match up for anybody.

Prototypical my ass. His takedowns are all suplexes and from the body lock, his rate of work is insane, and between takedowns he's leaping in for power punches.

I don't think its a style that's gonna work too well against some of the top guys in the division, but you are off base calling him a protypical LnPer

Rafael dos Anjos - B level fighter

Pat Healy - never won a UFC fight

Abel Trujillo - B level fighter

Thiago Tavares - pretty much "caught" him

Gleison Tibau - career prelim fighter (arguably LOST)

Kamal Shalorus - D level

Pre UFC - cans
dont listen to Joe khabib clearly beat tibau... and RDA is not B level

I am a big fan but Khabib didn't clearly beat tibau... neither guy did much.

Maybe prototypical was the wrong word but I stand by the LnPer part. He gets guys down, and does nothing once there. There's a reason he broke the TD record against Trujillo, it was because he kept letting him bak up. He has no control once on the ground.

Khabib vs Cerrone should be next.

After that fight, we will see where Khabib stands with the likes of Bendo, Gil, Diaz, and Grant.

They will let him fight Cerrone... its good for all parties...

Khab will get an active 4 fight winning finisher fighter to face... which could give him soon to be title fight...

Cerrone will get to continue his quest of fighting 8x in a year or whatever he wanted... money maker...

UFC will get a belt contender out of one of them...and possible fight of the night since Cerrone can keep him at distance and not be smothered forcing Khab to show if he is man enough to swim with sharks.
