    Lets say he beats Tony and then Conor. Do you see him beating Alvarez, Lee Or Justin? Do you see him being active and making the weight consistently? Is it "Khabib time?".

    Justin is an interesting fight, as he is the most high level wrestler. Still, that being said, Khabib's game of Judo, Folkstyle and Sambo make high level wrestlers look silly. People also REALLY sleep on Khabib's striking, but the reality is, he has been striking longer than almost any other fighter, even if it is not some flashy karate or muay thai style - he has outstruck his competition by a higher percentage more than any fighter ever, thus making him one of the best strikers to ever compete (he hits without getting hit).

    He should move up and teach that prissy whiteboy Colby Covington a lesson.

    Just don't let Joe Rogan say "Khabib era" - he'll jinx everything.

    honestly conor might be the toughest task for khabib. khabib has eaten a lot of straight lefts in his career. michael johnson stung him a few times. conor has the best straight left in the game

    Tony should have said "It's Tiramisu Time"

    "I'm ready to fight TBD"

    I think Ferguson and McGregor are the 2 he’ll struggle with the most. And even then I’m not sure how much of a struggle they’ll actually be.

    If he is able to dominate Tony, I'm pretty confident he isn't losing any time soon.

    That said, if that happened, he'd probably fight Alvarez and get upset since MMA is crazy like that.

    How can we even begin to make an educated guess when it's Papa Nurmagomedov making all the decisions...He has already said Khabib is retiring in 2018, so i don't know what kind of Khabib time we could possibly be looking at, even if Khabib gets the win over Tony. Then add weight cutting malarkey, ramadan, injury prone etc.

    If he beats Tony I think he's got a good chance at cleaning out the division. Alvarez might be a tough fight though.

    But I think his real enemy is the weight cut. It won't get easier over time, and there's a reason he doesn't fight at WW.

    GSP will come down to 155 and show Khabib who the wrestle-fuck king is.
