    Will a simple change of weight class change anything?

    is rda that much more powerful at 170 lb?

    There's nothing in the first fight that led me to believe RDA would win the rematch....

    Khabib rolls with guys way bigger than him and handles himself no problem..

    RDA at 170 wouldn't be an issue imo. Khabib wins again..

    No good.

    Khabib would still be a slight favorite here, but there's also a good chance he'd loose. And a derail on his path might be just what the UFC needs to keep him from beating the crap out of Conor.

    Khabib would also be healthier and more focused on training then for cutting weight.

    If Khabib again gain some mass, because he is small now - around 82 kg, he win this match much easier than last time.

    It makes absolutely no sense unless Khabib is permanently moving to WW. Why would RDA take such a risky fight that could push him down in the rankings and delay a title shot? And what would it prove for Khabib if he went back to LW afterwards?

    RDA isn't better now, than he was back then. Khabib smash again.

    Khabib would still win but with a style similar to say someone like Colby/Usman at welterweight & not the usual Khabib style. One of the set backs of Khabib's style is that it probably works best at lower weight classes. Its just that much harded to througly dominate & hold down a fighter (and do all the other stuff he does) for 3-5 rounds at the higher weight classes in such a fashion simply because of how big they are.
