Penn is a real fighter. Anyone, anywhere. He personifies martial arts. Definitely more impressive career than Khabib. Even in defeat.
Doesn't mean no nothing of the champ was $&it faced.
Exactly, I'd stand no chance against Ngannou in a fair fight but if he was really really drunk I could easily beat him to death. I could also strike out any major leaguer if they were super drunk.
Even Gray at his peak is not an easy fight for Khabib. We know that skillset of takedown/grappling degrades when you don't use it. When Tibau had a competitive fight with Khabib. It wasn't just a juice thing; he's a grappler that uses that skillset to win. It isn't like RDA who is mostly a striker now and gets subbed twice in a grappling match with cowboy.
Ahh the party life in Hawaii.
Is that the only thing Penn has over Khabib? Fighting at different weight classes?
That and losing to Frankie Edgar.
How about why did he fight Frankie Edgar for a third time standing straight up on his tippy toes? What was it about those first two beatings he took from Edgar that would lead him to think this strategy was a good idea?
Its all opinions and subjective so there is no answer to this but go on boys
Unmotivated Penn was robbed in the first fight
The robbery caused further motivation to be lost and he actually lost the 2nd fight
The 3rd fight was not Bj Penn but an impostor that fights on his tippy toes.
How many "high level" opponents does Bendo then have in his UFC run? RDA, Edgar, Pettis, Melendez, Thomspon? He lost twice to one of those guys, got Koed by another, and sqeeuuked out wins vs others.
If the rest of Khabib's competion is not high level, then I fail to see how Bendo's is either.
Eh, no. He won in impressive fashion when the odds were against him. I dont even like the guy, but you're a moron.
Khabib fought @ WW he was just content fighting cans in Russia and not testing himself at welter like BJ did
nahhhh Penn is wayyyy overreated
Bagov and Eldarov are WWs and are certainly not cans.
Remember when Aldo looked awful for a ton of 145lb weigh ins? Now he fights at 135lbs. Mcgregor just had undisciplined cuts. Not enough dieting and mainly water cutting. Aldo was no different. Mcgregor and many others wing their weight cuts for some reason.
Cowboy for one is an obvious one, Khabib pulled out multiple times against Cerrone. Prime Cerrone was a tough fight but Benson showed up to fight him multiple times while Khabib for some reason kept pulling out and refusing to fight Cerrone in his prime.
If Khabib was always so great then why did he duck Cerrone? He always ducked anyone he thought might be a tough fight.
i agree about khabib and longevity, and that his undefeated record has lots of cans, etc., but how is bj a suitable alternative? i mean yeah, khabib crushed a few cans in his day, but for the last decade or so, bj has basically been a can. hate to say it, but it’s true. who cares if bj fought “the best” if he almost always lost to them? khabib and bj just don’t belong in same conversation.
LMAO at the notion that Khabib ducked a guy like Cerrone.
Khabib demolished multiple people who crushed Cerrone.
Injuries happen man, stop reaching for an absurd hypothesis.
