    Bj did it back in the day and lost a very close decision to Machida. Can Khabib hang or possibly beat one of these big dogs??

    The BJ/Machida decision wasn't that close tbh, and that was a green Machida, not a prime champion like you're talking about

    Khabib would get smoked by Woodley, shouldn't even bring Whittaker into it.

    He would get smoked by most of the top guys at 185 like Yoel. I could see him beating Whittaker though. Styles make fights.

    If whittaker can deal with yoels wrestling he can deal with khabibs much easier. The striking difference would be ridiculous as well. Im not even gonna give the jones question any attention.

    Romero couldn’t take down 1 legged Whittaker after the first round but somehow khabib is gonna hold him down for 5?

    never seen khabib fight above lightweight so have no idea tbh, but almost guaranteed whittaker and jones would kill him. he'd be more likely to beat whittaker than jones tho

    LW is simply the best division for Khabib. His frame is big at LW, but small at WW (compared to guys like woodley/till). He would greatly benefit from the 165 division if that gets made imo

    Juice monkey Jones would obviously beat him... But if Adesanya becomes champ at MW id give Khabib a decent shot.
