    And people think that gsp grappling is anywhere near as good as khabib lol. Khabib would demolished Hardy in the first round with incredible ease.

    Khabib showed he can beat elite wrestlers when he beat _________ that one time.

    *crickets*

    Recency bias is real but eventually goes away.

    Missed the armbar, and then played it safe.. I was actually there in Jersey that night.. Not his best performance..

    Still a 50-44 basically..

    As a GSP fan I have to agree, khabib would ve destroyed hardy on the ground in less than 2 rounds ...

    But GSP skills are not made to finish opponents, they are made to win, and he did.

    GSP has the better overall resumé, Deal with it.

    That's how many decision wins Khabib has in the UFC. Guess those guys made it out of the first round right?

    Gsp literally dry humped Hardy in that fight. Did zero damage and was scared shitless of Hardy standup.

    He did some work in the striking. Hardy landed nothing.. But not GSP's best fight.. Still won with complete ease..

    It's hard to land anything on your opponent when they're dry humping you.

    Can you imagine gsp standing with someone like gaethje? Justin would probably KO gsp faster than what Matt serra did.

    the closest thing to a complete fighter gsp faced was Hendricks and he send him into early retirement...

    Yeah, and? How many top opponents has Khabib outstruck on the feet?

    GSP had great wrestling and great standup, but not the best wrestling and the best standup. Khabib is far worse on the feet than GSP. On the other hand Khabib is one of the most complete ground specialists we've ever seen, if not the most complete one (not talking only wrestling, but submission defense/offense).

    GSP used to outstrike wrestlers and outwrestle strikers. Khabib outwrestles everybody (except for juiced out of this world Tibau when Khabib was way greener).

    Jeez bud, got some hate on for GSP. Like it or not GSP had only ever been outstruck a handful of times.

    Lol Justin is 10x better and more dangerous on the feet.

    Also bisping was besting the shit out of george off his back. Which again prove the massive grappling difference between him and khabib.

    GSP feasted on one dimensional fighters and natural LWs until Hendricks sent him to retirement

    Khabib outstruck gaethje. This alone put him above gsp in the striking department.
