you dont know that unless they fight. Islam has called out all wrestlers in LW. no one wants it.
my money on the sambo world champion who already faced good wrestlers in chris wade and nik lentz.
That would be a great fight but Islam is already matched up. They are both guys that no one in the divisions really wants to fight right now, and I can't blame them. I wouldn't mind either of them against Do Brox or Ryan Hall but I feel they are both ahead of Hall and Do Bronx in contendership so I'm not sure who they should fight.
I’ll take Gregor. But I think it’s close. 2 very strong grapplers with good records and bright futures.
I think Makhachev would win, he is a better grappler than Gillespie. I would like to see Gillespie push for a bigger fight though... he seems content beating up lesser-fighters.
I’ve seen Chris Wade get out wrestled numerous times, your overrating his grappling. Gregor would toss him and Lentz no problem. Not impressed with either ones striking so if it comes to grappling, Gregors gonna take that.
Islam is a lot better striker for sure. But Gregor could keep him planted on the mat and win on points aka Usman style. But I would bet on Islam. Maybe we get lucky and see that fight one day.
Both guys are very legit so it’s possible we see it
easy money for makhachev.
Both are potential future Champs, it would be dumb to match them up against each other this early even though it's a great fight. Makhachev would win though via far superior striking after the wrestling cancels out.
That’s fine but your only reasoning was he beat Wade and Lentz which doesn’t mean much.
