That's a big IF.
Is there a betting line going for him to fight or not?
Khabib will lose his next fight to these:
Is it ramadanadingdong?
He will make it look easy.
his liver is the real problem
Barboza is a tough fight to come back to after a layoff. I think Khabib takes it but theres always the risk of getting kicked anywhere by Edson and going down
Tbh I think Barboza has turned quite the corner. I expect him to defend takedowns and murk Khabib standing. Highlight ko for Edson
I don't think he can beat Barbosa if he can't beat a burrito.
His hardest challenge will be making it to the octagon.
If he makes it there, it will be a very easy fight.
No way he can defend his takedowns. If Khabib loses its via head kick/punches between TD attempts.
I honestly believe he is the best fighter in the UFC if he can make weight, at least whilst he's at lightweight. At a higher weight class he might find his strength advantage negated.
Lose by decision
Very hard to stop a top wrestler from clinching you. He'd have to stop TD's from there to win, can't avoid the clinch with footwork alone, if Khabib aggressively pursues getting there. I think it'll look similar to Khabib/MJ with the exception of Barboza landing some hard knees and kicks instead of punches.
could eat this 24/7
This is one of Khabib's toughest matchups in the UFC imo, if not the toughest.
He would ragdoll Conor, and while Ferguson can compete on the ground I think he is too comfortable on his back and Khabib would not be threatened by his guard and woudl control him and win a decision.
Barboza has had his ups and downs, but he has never been simply taken down and beaten up/controlled that I can remember, his TDD is good and his insane athleticism certainly helps. The speed difference between these guys will be massive. I still favor Khabib but he will need to stay in Edson's face and in the clinch.
idk theres always a punchers chance every 5 minutes but if Khabib gets in on a single you're going for a ride.
He'll get tiger knee'd a la dariush just while shooting and his lights will get put out
Khabib wins every time he makes weight. It's making the weight that's causing problems...
