    That’s basically the theory the eight Colby fans used to accuse Usman of using EPO. Completely ignoring the fact that Colby himself has good cardio.

    As a fighter I would be far more fearful and cautious of a Khabib pressure than I would Colby's Khabib actually as power not the most precision puncher but something I would have to look out for, Colby offers no striking fear his pressure is solely to get that TD as is Khabib's but he brings vice like strength when he has you caged or canvassed you rarely get back up, Colby they always get back up because he as no strength and he's forced to go into cardio Colby to try and tucker out his opponent out to a point fighting/wrestling decision.

    Don't say much for Colby then does it deliver like 300 punches and couldn't even cause a black eye..? I've thrown a single punch and caused a black eye in sparring, so I do real sparring friend...

    A black eye isn't the mark of how much damage is done. But bruising, swelling and aberrations all over your face is usually a good mark of being damaged. If your gym let's people spar until that's what their face looks like, your gym isn't very responsible. Keep doin your thing though bro

    Buddy in sparring I expect all ^^^ those things depending on hard you going and popping each other, in a real deal fight gone 5rds and according to you 300 punches thrown and most you can do is mild facial abrasions I would rank Colby's striking at pom pom level fury. This is how you mess someone up in a fight friend ↓↓↓

    Nothing but facts in my post. Colby has more haters than almost any other fighter. Your posts are evidence of that.
    Colby stood with Robbie all day and was fine, even when Robbie was fresh.

    Sherdog before the fight: Robbies gonna ko this poser!
    Sherdog after: Robbies over the hill anyways Colby still sucks.

    It was the same exact thing before/after the rda fight.

    Colby looks like a khabib sized LW, Usman looks like a MW. Big difference in physique. Also Usman got tired in his earlier fights, Colby has always had insane cardio and pace.

    Just cause someone posts something you don't agree with, doesn't make them a hater.

    The fact you can't accept that people have different opinions makes you a salty Colby whiteknight.

    Colby is fighting much larger opponents than Khabib is, while probably being the same size as Khabib inside the cage.

    I was talking about the distance strikes, not the strikes when Colby was holding RDA against the cage.

    His striking is complete shit. Remove the threat of the takedown and send him over to Glory if he's such a striking talent. He has great cardio and he knows how to stay active, be it striking or grappling. He can't finish using either discipline. He's a decision machine tailor-made for MMA scoring.

    I think its serviceable and effective for his style but I wouldn't call it "very good".

    He is great at constantly touching you while pressuring and forcing TDs though.
