    Who do you take winning, if the match was made at 170?

    The catch being a young Matt Hughes. And Khabbib appears to be a big 155 guy.

    Khabib is the better technical wrestler....But Hughes had raw, unmatched strength, He fucking throws dudes like it aint shit. Hard to pick against Hughes. I think its an absolute 50/50 pick em

    Khabib is a better striker so him.

    I could see him beating guys who preferred to strike maybe. Quite a toss up.

    Agreed! That's why I started this thread.

    I wouldn't be shocked either way really.

    I'd take Hughes at ww. Hughes was a big, strong ww. They have weight classes for a reason.

    How is Khabib the better technical wrestler? Hughes was a 2x D1 All-American. Hughes beat way better wrestlers than Khabib has (GSP, Trigg, etc).

    Applied to mma, Khabib is the better wrestler technically. The sport, and techniques have evolved. And Khabib is extremely good at doing the small thing that make a difference

    I’d argue a large portion of that had to do with his strength.

    Hughes was a 2x D1 AA. He placed 2nd at the Midlands in '98 (Kos placed 7th or so); losing 3-2 to 3x D1 champ and Olympian Joe Williams.

    He's as legit a wrestler as they come...and I can't stand him.

    Your not comprehending what I'm saying.

    Yoel Romero is an olympic medalist, and Khabib is a better technical mma wrestler then he is. Being a wrestler, and a wrestler applied to mma, are two different things.
