    DC is more successful with less takedowns, Khabib is better at chaining them together.

    based on statistics khabib for sure, though DC is more well-rounded and has fought tier 1 competition for longer.

    Cormier is better at getting them to the ground, Khabib is more effective at keeping them on the ground.

    DC has better freestyle wrestling takedowns, but Khabib has a better overall arsonal.

    Khabib, DC, and Cain are about the same level at their respective weights.

    Khabib doesn't ever let people up. I never said he was bad at it, it's just that we're discussing him against the best guy in the history of the sport at controlling people on the ground.

    Cormier's entire system of wrestling (takedown, holddown) is by far superior.

    Jones popped back up every time, and if I remember correctly, Gus got back up too.

    As much as I like DC, Khabib is worlds above him.

    DC is a natural Middleweight throwing Heavyweights through the air

    Khabib is a natural WW struggling to finish top 15 LWs
