Curious to hear what you think... I feel like it has to be him
Doubtful, he gets mauled like everyone else
Baby Jay all day.
PENN is trash
People used to say Fighter Kevin Lee was a bad match up.
ferguson by armbar. you heard it hear first
If Aldo was just a little bigger or Whittaker just a little smaller... those types would make him or any other wrestler look amateurish.
I wanted to see Rob smoke DC when he was 205 champion, but they've sacrificed Anderson who stalled the heck out of DC.
9/10 times Aldo stops him inside 3.
I agree matchup-wise for the most part, but Whittaker would have to be more than a little bit smaller, he had extreme trouble making 170 (and was chinny as hell) while Khabib would be a rather small lightweight.
(About the size of Conor, although i'm not even sure of that nowadays, considering how yoked McGregor is).
Real question is khabib tony's toughest opponent. Im not sure.
Aldo def had a style that could have worked,but the reality is i think hes too small and Khabib too much for him at 155
Lol DC would knock Whittaker the fuck out
...or just throw him out of the cage
yeah this aint even close to what we are discussing
...until he started to lose more than the South Beach Diet. Haha
Khabib would just TD him on a kick. Also too small.
...last time it was Ferg by broken knee, his own.
Since 3 other people beat Tony already Khabib doesn’t have to be his toughest....just in the top 3.
It would have been a fantastic fight. Nobody takes prime Aldo down when he's fresh and even if you do manage to get a TD he's already starting the scramble before he eve hits the ground, obviously he wrecks Khabib standing, especially if we're talking about the version that still threw leg kicks.
There's a reason even 4 years ago Khabibs team turned this matchup down, and it clearly had nothing to do with them "not wanting to fight Featherweights".
Aldo is stylistically an absolute nightmare match up for Khabib but the size difference would definitely be an X factor.
Are we talking pre Khabibs improved striking and him just been a takedown machine? Because I'd go with Khabib.
Aldo could do some damage to Khabib early on, but just get gassed from defending too much in the later half of rounds.
P.s. BJ Penn' opponent during the public fight would smash Khabib.
Prime penn would school khabib.
