    Why wouldn't GSP wrestle Khabib?? He's out wrestled ever wrestler he's faced, which is what set him apart.

    Usman and Colby fought a stand up fight because they both respected the other ones wrestling.

    GSP isn't someone who allows his opponents strengths to dictate the fight.

    Every one of those dudes would defecate themselves, under Khabib.

    Tonon and Ryan aren't fighters, they're grapplers. Big difference.

    GSP was submitted by Hume ... Khabib has never been submitted by anyone.

    BJJ is flyshit compared to combat sambo in a real fight. Hell, wrestling is flyshit compared to combat sambo in a real fight.

    GSP has the size, and the genetic aptitudes, to present a real challenge to Khabib ... but he is not the tougher man, and he is not the better grappler.

    Hell, nothing those soft, non-fighting "BJJ fuckfest" dudes do has anything whatsoever to do with Khabib's skillset.

    If GSP is anything, he's the more intelligent man, and the better natural athlete. But Khabib is intelligent also.

    It is going to be Khabib's intelligence, combat Sambo mastery, and absolute mental toughness vs. GSP's intelligence, well-rounded arsenal, and athletic superiority.

    That's the fight.

    If it comes down to guts, GSP has proven he will quit and soil himself, if in a bad spot.

    On pure ground savvy and technique, Khabib owns GSP. Khabib has forgotten more than GSP will ever know on the ground.

    I love when they say that and then turn around and flip their shit when someone says GSP was on PEDs while replying with "he never failed a test"

    I'm aware that you're trolling, but if Nicky Ryan fought Khabib in an MMA match he might actually die.

    The only advantage GSP has is his wrestling and the fact he's naturally 185+ lbs and picks on 155 lbs fighters

    For sure. But the fact GSP has top shelf grappling is comforting as well, cuz despite his best efforts he may end up on his back. And Danaher is the best coach, and DSS the best team, to help him prep for that.

    Still, at 40 and only 1 fight in 7 years, he should stay retired.

    GSP doesn't spend half his camp there, use to go to Renzo's and Jackson's, more often in the early part of his career.. he would go train with the Death Squad for a week or two at most and does so more out of fight camp, then during.

    GSP was the best wrestler in MMA, while Khabib has shown to be the best Grappler thus far. Khabib doesn't shoot the double in the center of the cage often like GSP did.. he usually gets them against the fence and grinds the takedown while wearing his opponent out in doing so.

    Nick stuffed a huge portion of GSP's takedowns. Of course he outwrestled most, it was his go to.. just like Ryan Hall has a sub in most of his wins, doesn't mean others haven't gotten the best of him or put him in bad situations while grappling in an MMA fight.

    Al has legit wrestling, known for it.. and GSP plus Khabib have completely different skill sets they use for their MMA Ground Game.. Khabib has also won many rounds while dominating. Comparing the two is like comparing Nate and Nick Diaz, vastly different, two dif skill sets, but only the casuals and those who don't grasp what MMA is, don't see the vast difference in fight styles.

    Khabib has a long way to go to reach the status gsp has.

    Yeah an unless wrestling has introduced striking on its program they are more than anything striking now. You can make it to the top with bjj alone, not you can do it with wrestling or striking alone, but as a whole, yes wrestlers are better suited for mma than bjjers
