    He could get the belt with the right matchups but he will never be as dominant as Khabib because his chin is shit

    CDF isn't in the top 5 and yes I believe Islam can control him like he did with Ramos

    Never
    With that cookie chin, even Habib couldn't be a champ.

    Absolutely not. They are clearly trying to force it into reality but it just isn't it.

    I think he has the top 5 material, but after that it's hard to tell.

    Islam could definitely be the next champ as he has the potental. He won't be the next Khabib though, Khabib was truly once in a lifetime talent.

    Reminds me of when GSP said Rory would be the next champ tbh.

    Na not really. I might be wrong but LW is still super stacked and he didnt look half as dominant as Khabib.
    Its hard to say tho. He is vastly unproven.

    UFC still doing the "former world champion Rafael Dos Anjos" headline a Fight Night card to make casuals think it means something?

    Khabib knows that he's much better than his competitor, he doesn't know that this applied to people around him also

    CDF is much better than Ramos off his back, and Islam only spent about 2 minutes on top of Ramos after dropping him standing.

    Oliveira would choke Islam silly though

    Islam has done absolutely nothing to warrant any talk of title contention. His best win is a close decision against a child called arman on his ufc debut

    His body of work is already impressive, I see him going far in the division
