    Tonys better standing up. The fight starts standing.

    Tony will do damage from the bottom when it goes to the ground.

    He can do damage at any position.

    It will be close without a doubt for these reasons.

    Also Tony, imo is more likely to finish Khabib then Khabib finishing Tony, on the ground or the feet. Tony's too tough and his cardio is too good to quit or break.

    The only way Khabib will win is by smothering Tony for the majority of the fight... Tony has a lot more ways to win.

    The way you are using the word 'rated', i think you mean 'ranked'. 'where' isn't the correct question word for rating. 'how' is. I think he is the 3rd best LW in the UFC with Eddie being a very close 4th. I think Eddie would beat him if they fought, but eddie got brutally KOed two fights ago and Tony is on a huge win streak. That's where I think he should be ranked.

    I think he's overrated based on the general impression I get when people talk about him.

    Tony Ferguson knew Werdum wasn't going to touch him. Karyn Bryant and the Fox set was 2 feet across from them, and Tony was main eventing a card days away. Colby was literally in Australia for no reason other than like a autograph signing. Werdum would have kicked his ass and not thought twice. Colby was absolutely terrified.

    It will be FAR BETTER if Tony loses. Well, when he loses.

    Khabib is hittable and has been rocked before.


    I think Tony hurts him and finishes Khabib in the 1st or second round.
