    Khabib Treatment: being gifted a belt by beating the #11 ranked guy at your weight once becoming top contender.

    Assuming something happened to the current champ here is what the top contenders would need to win a belt like khabib.

    BW: #1Cody Garbrandt would need to beat #11 Cody Stamann
    FW: #1 Brian Ortega would need to beat #11 Ricardo Lamas
    LW: #1 Tony Ferguson would need to beat #11 Gregor Gillespie
    WW: #1 Colby Covington would need to beat #11 Neil Magny
    MW: #1 Yoel Romero would need to beat #11 David Branch
    LHW: #1 Daniel Cormier would need to beat #11 Glover Texeira
    HW: #1 Stipe Miocic would need to beat #11 Tai Tuivasa

    I see what you’re trying to do here, and it will work for the most part

    But Khabib still smashed Conor for his title defense

    To punch holes in your theory, I give Gregor a live dog chance vs Ferguson.

    Anyone is a live dog vs Ferguson, Lando already proved this.

    It was suppose to be Ferg but La Quinta stepped in to save the card and you know it

    And all that came about cause Conor fucked off - but came back and Khabib still won certifying his championship

    get with it

    Yeah it's not his fault everyone else pulled out is it?

    Then he smashed Conor in his first defence anyway so it doesn't matter

    Did you forget Al was a 1 day late replacement? also he beat Lee and moved to the top 5 which only makes Khabib win more prestigious

    Use of dark pink text is a solid touch. Should discourage him effectively.

    It may be snarky but he has a point. What you fail to understand is that a) the "Khabib treatment" is largely the product of circumstances outside anyone's control (McGregor holiding the division hostage for two years, Tony and Max getting injured etc.), b) Khabib has the best streak in the UFC at the moment and has already smashed other top ranking LWs including the former champ. As chaotic as LW has been in recent years, to insinuate that Khabib is somehow not the legit champ because of the circumstances in which he won his title is just stupid.

    I think Magny would be a real live dog against Colby

    I bet you cry yourself to sleep over the fact that Khabib is the lineal, undisputed champ.

    TS is still emotional and butt hurt about Colin getting besmirched and son’d by Khabib. Your threads can’t change reality.
