    I think Captain Canada will be the hardest fight if that happens.

    I think tony would’ve held 55 strap a long ass time if not for khabib.

    Funny I think the same of your logic. 12 KO/TKOs in 30 fights for Dustin. 12 TKO/KOs for Tony, in 28 fights.

    Tony has a far superior grappling game than Dustin does. Way better cardio, much tougher...

    My logic is bad though, yours is flawless... Lol

    Hes dangerous in every position every second of the fight. Standing, at range, in close, during scrambles, on the ground . Everybody else has gotten extended periods standing with khabib and gotten up/stuffed takedowns.

    Finishing people with strikes is finishing people with strikes you muppet.

    Tony is the same size as Poirier and has been fighting LWs, not FWs. Tony would murder those FWs too. Gimme a break, Jesus Christ.

    You can't teach an ignorant person to not be ignorant so I wouldn't bother wasting your time.

    I'm a khabib fan. Also a realist. Good attempt at a comeback though. Khabib is a paper champ until he fights Tony or 1 of them loses

    Tony
    a lot more durable
    probably the only guy that can 1up Khabib's cardio
    extremely versatile

    i like Dustin but the only advantage he has is power and well his boxing is better

    Ahh- the world of sherdog.

    That was then and this is now. Dustin's chin ain't broken and I've seen fergusons blood flow like a fountain.

    I also didnt slight either. Tony is "elite" - it's just my opinion that his style "could "lead
    to some form of regression.... "could" being what we call an "operative" word.

    Also- I began my post " I have no idea"

    dustin has looked solid at 155 with heavy hands but he only has a punchers chance. Tony has many ways to win

    Tony has more confidence right now than the whole division combined. And I think most serious MMA fans understand how powerful confidence is inside the octagon.

    I don't see Tony losing for a couple more years, honestly. 2-3 title defenses, maybe a trilogy with Khabib. I don't really like the guy, but you can't deny his badassery is supreme right now. And I'm a big Cerrone fan.

    Tony because he is willing to hurt his loved ones.

    Tony.

    And it's a bad joke that he is still not guaranteed a title shot... In these days, when virtually everyone with a 3-win (!!) streak is demanding a title shot... I loved Tony's weirdly cool demeanor at the post-fight speech... no call out... even though riding a 12-win streak...

    Tony has a bigger reach and height advantage which gives him a better chance of keeping Khabib from taking him down.

    Dustin might be the best fighter Khabib's fought though not that it's saying much.

    Tony, definitely. Poirier matches up very poorly against Khabib grappling-wise. On the feet, he has a better shot than most because of his boxing and power. I just don't see him being able to stop the takedowns.
