    Id like to see someone go the same route Jones did with Chael.I remember Jon saying he Chael Sonnened Chael Sonnen or something of that nature

    Tony has the unorthodox takedowns and submissions.Honestly would just like to see Khabibs tdd tested.If Tony goes in defensive like every other fighter Khabibs going to win via decision imo.

    Thoughts?

    Edit:This is one reason Id like to see Gsp vs Khabib.He aint going to sit back and wait like every other khabib opponent

    Id love to see how Khabib deals with this type of technique and Tonys reaction if Khabib defends

    I have a feeling that Tony's grappling will be utterly irrelevant against Khabib.

    What technique ? Barboza landed on top, he was in a superior posiiton until he got upkicked and the fight stopped. You do this against Khabib and you are probably getting your back taken or your face smashed

    If he allows him on top, if Tony could somehow get him down first things could get interesting.

    Im not sure a bottom game exits that can neutralise or submit khabib at 155.

    I say yes, no one shoot takedown on khabib so we dont know if his takedown defense is good. He might suck on his back too!

    Yes, especially when Khabib starts with his furry to get his opponent to the cage, I have a feeling that instead of backing out Tony will start a grappling exchange just to stay on the center.
