    Woodley and Thompson are tough matchups.
    All the others will crumble

    He'd beat all those guys except for T-Wood. Woodley won't be taken down and he'd KO Khabib if they bang it out.

    I think that Woodley finishes him. Colby might be an interesting one. I'd be interested in the Usman fight as well.

    We already know he can beat RDA, however he could not finish him nor did he put a terrible beating on him and RDA is a small WW. Woodley kills him, he's to strong; I don't think he would dominate Covington, Lawler, Usman, Till, Maia or Thompson, they are to big for him (not necessarily tall but big frame also). That leaves Magny and Masvidal IMO

    I think these WW guys have too much reach advantage for Khabib. T-wood has 78 inches and Khabib has 70. It is one weight class down.

    Khabib fares badly. He loses size and strength advantage, and his skill set is overrated.
