    Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler were division 1 NCAA wrestlers. It's not as special as you seem to think it is.
    Daniel is an Olympic world champion caliber wrestler. That is in a league all on it's own.

    Khabib is so OVERRATED. His record consists 80% of fluff nobody's.

    Not true at all, Khabib thoroughly out grappled RDA, far more than Colby did. Go rewatch the fight

    I did not know that Justin gaethje and Michael Chandler where where D1 All American

    Those are both good Fighters that have been champions

    With DC being Division 1 All-American and Brock Lesnar being Division 1 All American heavyweight champion

    Division 1 All American must be a big big deal in a very great accomplishment

    I even see a old DC beating Stepic milosevic

    Khabib's Judo and Sambo benefit from Colby clinching on him.

    There’s nothing more cringe than the tag “all American”.

    Boom. Colby is like Khabib, but with less variety in his takedowns, far far worse top game and overall bjj, and worse striking.

    Khabib might not be the greatest pure wrestler there is in mma ( though he's certainly up there )
    The thing is that his wrestling skills translate better to mma than any of the other wrestlers'.

    It is also true that Khabib hasn't faced another great wrestler yet but that will happen in time

    It is possible he could simply outcardio Kebab to a decision win, but if he can get Colby down - which surely he will - he'll maul him and win.

    Remember when Robert Trujillo tried to out wrestle Khabib? I think that fight still holds the records for most TDs in a 3 round fight <GinJuice>

    Khabib schooled RDA worse than Covington did. RDA took Covington down multiple times. He couldn't do shit to Khabib.

    Silly comparison, he also got wrestlefucked and finished by Clay Guida. Things change, RDA has made tremendous improvements in his TDD.

    Khabib would have his hands full with RDA in a 5 rounder.

    Don't ever compare the wrestling of Trujillo with Colby again. Trujillo literally couldn't earn the right to get beat by Colby in wrestling, they were in different universes.
