    - Khabib was only 23

    - it was Khabib’s second fight in the UFC and first in Vegas on a serious card

    - Tibau sported a great 27-7 record coming to this fight with his last victory being against RDA

    - For Tibau it was his 16th fight in the UFC

    - Tibau was significantly bigger and stronger, Khabib looked very skinny at that point

    - Khabib still constantly pushed the pace and controlled the fight

    - Tibau barely landed, defended takedowns and had two of his own takedowns that Khabib instantly stood up from

    - Khabib certainly won the fight due to pace, control, aggression

    Tibau never had a "great" record, that's just blasphemy.

    Tibau has a higher TDD% average than GSP

    Not much else to talk about

    He was 10-5 in UFC only, that’s certainly not terrible

    drowning men clutch at straws.... and fanboys who afraid their guy is going to get smushed by an undefeated killer do also . theres nothing to look at here, tibau managed to stave off khabibs attack yes, but he didn't do anything the whole fight other than try to defend

    Exactly.

    And McGarglers will pretend this fight indicates how the fight vs Khabib will unfold.

    Just like the hater who dreams about Khabib smashing Konour will post a pic of Nate choking Konour like it was a sealed deal.

    Lol

    All idiots.

    A good JUCO wrestler like Jamie Varner took his ass the fuck down.

    I personally feel tibau won but that doesn't matter anyway bc people improve ya know. Khabib would murder him today with him by holding him down.

    Tibau won the fight and Khabib looked rather ineffective IMO, but it was a long time ago.

    Almost everyone agrees that Tibau won that fight. But that fight's irrelevant because: (1) Khabib was only 23 at the time and has subsequently steamrolled far better fighters that Tibau; and (2) stylistically, Tibau was a completely different fighter than Conor.

    I bet even current Covington couldn't take that version of Tibau down.

    Tibau is one of Khabib's biggest wins.

    He really hasn't fought anybody.

    RDA is a solid win. Barboza is pretty good.

    It's hard to say if RDA had completely hit his stride then.

    Outside of that, it's pretty much Tibau level and below.

    Tibau was a little tank.

    Tibau won but all the other points you bought up are correct.
