    Poirer has maintained all this time that Khabib isn't overly strong, nothing special in the strength department but Justin said Khabib was strong as fuk.

    Guess it depends on each fighter and strength being relative to them.

    Dustin has a better understanding of grappling so he probably can distinguish when Khabib is using strength and when he's wedging him in place

    Despite what he likes you to believe, Conor took the Khabib fight very very seriously, and was fully prepared to counter Khabib's wrestling. And it showed... for a bit.

    Khabib improved with each passing fight. The Khabib that faced Gaethje would've kiled Conor in 1 round. One can also argue that Conor never faced Prime Khabib.

    Khabib's feet were like hands while Conor's feet were like balloons.

    Nah. I agree that Khabib seemed to be always improving, and I respect that, but improvements become incrementally smaller rather than exponential as you seem to be saying. When you see guys make massive improvements between fights, its because they aren't that good and have a lot of room to improve. Guys like Khabib are always making refinements which takes a lot of focus an discipline, but nothing where two fights later he becomes a completely different fighter.

    Khabib was always a dominant grappler, but his striking started to click around 2016/17 imo. That's when he really hit his MMA prime, and he retired still in his prime.

    lmao

    your boy would’ve gotten slaughtered in there. This ain’t 2007 anymore. The sport has evolved, although BJ having had godlike TDD, Khabib would’ve found a way to take him down and maul him.
