    They guy misses weight, pulls out from weight cuts, and had a fucking seizure to make weight. There's a thing called muscle density, size and height isn't everything.

    For a TS Khabib would fight out of his weight class, but him and Kamaru are friends so not while Kamaru is champ which will likely be for a long time.

    There isnt really anyone deserving at LW other than Tony, so maybe he retires after that.

    Remember Khabib was willing to fight MW Bisping at UFC 204 if Henderson wasnt able to

    Yah his crazy muscle density is why he struggled to get a double with 195 on bench press right?

    He missed weight twice, its a little overblown, dont ya think, as for the seizures, its more prevalent that you might think bud. Turns out that cutting like 15 pounds of water isnt great for health. My points still stands, he isnt a big guy frame size or muscle size

    Frankie looks so tiny. Crazy that he was the lw champ.

    He's taller than MW Gastelum. He has a history of missing weight, or pulling out because he almost died from cutting weight. Also can't say he looks smaller than Usman as an excuse why he shouldn't move up, because Usman is almost comically large for a WW.

    The "seizures" was mistranslated from a Russian interview, he actually said he was feeling cramps. That's very normal.

    Contards know this but they still like to troll since their hero lost on the feet then tapped bp_mma_071018_38.jpg 26-3.jpg

    Frankie Edgar seems far too nice to be part of Ali’s harem.

    Muscle density?
    You mean it has more muscle fibers in the same volume?
    Water in the muscle?
    Are the fibers bigger?
    Is it heavier?
    Please explain what you mean by muscle density
    ?

    Now he has a nutritionist and literally none of this happens now. 2017 was a long time ago. He had his mishaps, but look now. What can you say about Khabib now? He hasn't had any problems since 2017.

    Agreed TS.

    People who say he's a natural welterweight are the same kind of people who say Jones is a bully at light heavyweight and i'm not even a fan of Jones.

    Also: Khabib is roughly the same size as Conor, yet i don't see people b*tching about him being a bully at 155.
    "But he fought at featherweight!" Yeah, Rumble Johnson fought at welter- and middleweight, none of which are suited for him at all.

    This is a terrible picture to use for size comparisons. You have all kinds of issues why it isnt a fair image to use. Usman is literally 3 times the size of Khabib. Can you figure out why?

    I simply cut out Usman, lined up their feet, and placed them side by side. Usman has not been resized. It's a straight cut out.

    What is perspective?
    Usman is closer to the camera and appears bigger. Look at Kelvin who's a MW.

    He's been way leaner since the Michael Johnson fight.
