    @13:52 - Brendan Schaub states Khabib doesn't finish guys in regard to a fight with Tony Ferguson, who he thinks will beat him because he's better at striking, submission grappling, cardio, and everything else.
    I tend to think their submission game is on par. Striking and cardio I'll give Tony the edge.

    Khabib's last 5 fights extending to the past 3 years and 2 months-
    vs McGregor - sub
    vs Iaquinta - dec
    vs Barboza - dec (although he himself stated he was trying to make it last to a decision to shake off ring rust)
    vs Johnson - sub
    vs Horcher - TKO

    That's 3 out of his last 5 fights finished. Overall, he finishes fights 31% by KO/TKO, 31% by sub, 38% by dec. Saying he "doesn't finish guys" is going a bit far, no?

    Personally I think the fight is as close to 50/50 as it gets. Tony simply won't knock Khabib out because he lacks power and Khabib has very good striking defense, Khabib is unlikely to submit Tony because of his BJJ acumen. In my opinion either Khabib TKO's Tony on the ground or Tony submits him from guard - call me crazy but I don't see this fight going past the 3rd round. There just isn't any precedent for anything else to occur.

    Schaub also predicted Khabib Conor would be a "close dogfight" lol.

    Schaub has a history of dumb predictions, as well as sucking off the guys he idealizes.

    The funny thing is he said "who was the last guy he finished" how about literally the last guy he fought.

    The worst part is, he says 'name the last guy Khabib finished'. It was McGregor in his last fight! I don't understand how he's managed to get so far in the business with less mma knowledge than 90% of the people on sherdog. Can't stand him.

    Ask Khabib
    Schaub is the ultimate Sherbro with memory span of a gold fish. He get super hyped up over whatever fighter had an impressive fight on the last card and calls him "the best, the beast, the ultimate p4p GOAT God".

    You needed percentages,
    to establish
    whether or not
    Schaub is accurate,
    that Khabib couldn't finish Al or Barboza

    Ridiculous.

    If anyone knows a thing or two about finishing guys, it would be Brendan Schaub.

    i never thought id say this but he should stick to comedy. I like the dude but his combat sports opinions are beyond dumb sometimes.

    TBH Schaubs predictions are as accurate as his sense of fashion.

    Unless its a straight KO it seems Brendan doesnt see it as a finish.

    Makes sense coming from someone whos soul was taken multiple times via detached conciousness
