    We all know that Khabib-Ferguson won't happen since it apparently violates the laws of physics. However, don't we now know who would have won?

    Khabob would more than likely keep Tony on his back, not smack him around on the feet.

    No, because they did not fight.

    Khabib likely would have won, but you never know what can happen in a fight. Nobody thought GSP would lose to Matt Serra or that Bisping would KO Rockhold, but it happened.:rolleyes:

    Meh, I do think Khabib would've won either way but basing that on Tony's loss isn't smart

    Justin doesn't fight anything like Khabib but Khabib would've crushed Tony worse than Gaethje did.

    It's likely that one of them would have won.

    I do believe though, that it would have been a draw, or a split decission. Maybe a split draw.

    No, of course it is more likely that Khabib would've won, but it obviously would've been a completely different fight and a fight I believe Tony would've been more prepared for stylistically. I see that fight being more competitive.

    it depends at what point they met. Shame it never happened and almost certainly won't now.

    Yeah, Khabib is a deadly striker like Justin.

    Tony has two issues that will hurt him against top guys, especially at this point in his career (age, mileage):

    1. Easy to hit, poor defensive boxing
    2. Easy to take down

    Justin exploited the first flaw and Khabibi would exploit the second flaw for the W. Both Justin and Khabibi are terrible match-ups for Tony.

    Conor fans that rallied behind Ferg are now lost, because Khabib would’ve beat Ferg regardless.

    Who you gonna hide behind now Conor fanboys? JG?

    If you're implying a Ferguson win would be as unlikely as the two you list, I disagree.
