    “I just hope he comes in and makes the weight. I seen him out of camp once man, and that’s a big dude,”Hooker recently told James Lynch when he was asked to pick a winner in the Nurmagomedov vs. Barboza fight. He would have been like 95 kilos [209lbs] – like light-heavyweight size – and he was wrestling Luke Rockhold and just out-muscling him, just holding him down.”

    “So, that’s a big guy. That’s one of the guys that I don’t know how he makes lightweight, man,”

    Conor couldn't even outgrapple Diaz and got handled by midget Mendes

    Khabib is going to feel unlike anything he's ever experienced and three weight classes above him

    Has khabib fought anyone bigger than himself ever?

    I mean other than Tibau and he got a gift decision in that one.

    Reminds me of the old Bill Brasky skit and has about as much reality.

    He also said that he still thought Barboza would beat Khabib.

    HOLY SHEET. Luke is a big mother fucker and he's just trapped here. I didn't think I was able to appreciate Khabib's skill/strength anymore, but I was wrong.

    I hope he smashes conors face in.

    But conors spectacular performance against (admittedly average) Alvarez has changed everything.

    Poirier looked spectacular against Eddie... that's no knock on Dustin because he's legit, but Khabib is an entirely different specieis.

    Hard to tell, but doesn’t look like Luke is that much heavier or bigger than him, in spite of competing 2 weight classes higher.

    I believe Dan.
