    People rarely talk about Khabib BJJ accompishments since he barely had to use them in the fight, but he actually competed in NAGA and ADCC competitions in 2012 and woth both gold medals in the No-Gi welterweight expect division



    A glimpse of Khabib BJJ game can be seen in Trujillo fight. Abel took Khabib down twice in that fight and got absolutely grapple fucked

    I really think most Khabib fans don’t actually know anything about him other than the fact that he’s undefeated.

    Khabib is a complete grappler
    His mat skills >>>>> his takedowns

    His passing and hips are the entire reason his GnP is so successful

    He didnt win adcc lol. Im a khabib fan. He won naga under adcc rules. Naga isnt that special of a grappling comp. not that khabib isnt a bad ass grappler but winning adcc is on a way diff level than a naga comp.

    He never did ADCC. He fought in 2 NAGA brackets at the same time. One was under ADCC rules.

    watched some of his sambo matches and he's got ridiculous subs and transitions.

    Most folks are unaware how good he is even off his back, because they've only seen his last few UFC fights.

    He is dangerous EVERYWHERE on the ground.

    BEAST grappler.

    Lots of ADCC and IBJJF guys compete at NAGA expert level tournaments. Not saying NAGA is top teir, just that it gets a few monsters passing through.

    No MMA fighter is going to be the best at grappling. Jacare certainly would be an example, his grappling is not what it was when that is all he did. Khabib is a beast on the ground. I would like to see him and Maia at 170. I am all for interesting fights taht don't hold up the title. It would be a grapple fest and the odds of an injury keeping him on ice a long time wouldn't be high. Would be a nice test run at 170 for Khabib too.

    That is NAGA and not ADCC.

    Winning NAGA is like winning your first mma fight that was held in a bar somewhere in the south (compared to ADCC).

    NAGA is not an extraordinary accomplishment tho, Gall won one of those.

    That being said, his grappling is very impressive, both on top and on his back.

    NAGA is pretty huge. Lots of elite grapplers compete there. Even in a smaller venue like NAGA Albany gets it's fair share of top bjj guys.


    ADCC is definitely top tier with Mundials for sure, but NAGA events especially in large venues (NY/LA) get top talent.

    20 year old Max’s ground game is nothing to brag about. Furthermore, Mendes came off the couch for that fight and absolutely dominated Conor in grappling until he used all of his energy.
