    Khabib has been blasting true the LW division. Tonight Benson proved that he is the real test for LW fighters. If you want a crack at the title, Benson needs to be on the W list.

    Khabib vs Benson is the fight to make right now. Benson will go after the second Dagestan Sambo fighter, the one he previously thought he was fighting, and will try to solidify 3 wins in a row and further his chances at getting another title shot.

    Khabibs number one test is Benson. Benson has solid striking, wrestling and BJJ, great mixed martial artist. Khabib is known to out grapple every possible opponent and if he is able to repeat the same with Henderson, out of question, he is the n.1 contender. This will be the biggest fight of Khabibs career.

    Called this a while back in my thread. The first part came true, I fully expect Bendo to beat Khahib next.

    Khabib will be gassed out by the end of the 3rd round and will lose by sub/ud

    Khabib is a small LW that relies on technique. I don't see Khabib being as successful in the scramble as he has been with everyone else. And I don't see him out-muscling Bendo either.

    Khabib is young anyway, if he loses this title eliminator he'll get another shot at some point. This is Bendo's last case to make for a title shot, even though I don't think Dana wants him anywhere near the belt, he deserves his last chance if he can beat Khabib

    Yes. Hopefully Bendo wins and they cut Khabib.

    I don't know if Khabiv can hold on to 5 rounds.
    He was slamming and banging on Healy but he did gass some cardio.

    Bendo would win. Khabib fans don't want to see this fight.

    Very tough fight to call. I thought Rustam would put up a better fight against Benson.

    If it's a 3 round fight, I got Khabib easy. If it's 5 rounds, then it's an issue for the beebs.
