    Who takes this? Hypothetical matchup. Biggest guy in the divison in terms of size (vick) against the strongest guy in the division aka khabib. I thought vick would look lanky at that height for a lw. I was totally wrong. Dude looks huge despite being too tall for the weight class. Apparently fights at 185 lbs. Still 185 for a 191 cm guy is pretty low.

    Khabib via a raping that would have him being cell mates with War Machine by the end of the night

    Khabib and it's not even close. Would put the entire horror movie industry out of business for a decade at least.

    Vick would get mauled. Just because someone's big for a div doesn't mean he's always gonna outmuscle people

    Vick is working his way up the rankings, give him a couple more fights before contender names like Khabib

    Probably Khabib UD, but I do think it's time for Vick to get a big fight. He could take Barboza's place in the elite matchmaking circle.

    Bro you should know by now that Shertards do nothing but suck Khabibs dick. You could put a hypothetical match between Khabib and Fedor, then all of these dickriders heads would implode.

    Vick has not shown any feat that would give Khabib trouble. He has reach and solid striking but is not as impressive as Barboza.

    Styles make fights. Vick does not have a style that coukd gove Khabib trouble

    I think Vick's length and striking skill could give Khabib problems if he used his jab to keep distance.

    The question marks are:
    1. How good is Vick in the clinch? Can he control Khabib there and not get taken down?
    2. How good is Vick's guard? If he's strong enough off his back, those long legs could help him keep Khabib at bay and create room enough to get back to the feet.

    At this point, though, Khabib would be the clear favourite.
