    He's literally only 9-0 and of his 3 no-name wins he has in the UFC, one of the guys doesn't even have a wikipedia

    I am not denying that he isn't good or doesn't have potential

    But he seems to be unjustifiably more overrated than anyone I seen in recent history. This is worse than the Johnny Walker hype train

    We haven't seen him tested, we don't know his gas tank a minute past round 2, etc

    We don’t really know yet because like you said he hasn’t really fought any one. Maybe he’s underrated by the ones overrating him in your eyes. Or maybe he sucks. We have to see him fight more to know for sure.

    It depends on where you rate him. I rate him as a highly talented prospect that seems to have a ton of potential but hasn’t fought a ranked opponent yet, so we don’t really know.

    I think he has all the potential and talent to back up the hype.. but until he does… yes, absolutely!

    Hard to be overrated when you're the greatest in the history of all and any human endeavors.

    You're saying that like he lost embarrassingly or something, the guy suffered COVID complications, how is that a 'fall from grace'?

    What the actual fuck are you talking about, did you follow the conversation at all? I think you are just chiming in with no context.

    His fall from grace was well before covid was even a thing.

    So far yes, let's at least see him beat someone in oh I dunno the top 25 before straddling the dick wagon

    We don't know if he is overrated simply because he only has 3 fights in the UFC. His quick finish of Meerschaert was pretty impressive and wouldn't say he's a no name. His next fight with Li is a much stiffer test as far as opponents are concerned.

    If he gets past Li...

    170 - Have him fight Thompson, RDA or Edwards...doubt Edwards accepts but these 3 don't have a fight booked.
    185 - Winner of Till/Brunson or Strickland. Give him a good test.

    He definitely has that vibe of being something good and he can go between 170 and 185 if needed or if the right fight presents itself.

    Khamzat is more overrated than Sage Northcutt imo. Sage was a pretty boy with ripply muscles and cool flips. But I don't think many people saw him going very far. He showed up during the worst of the favoritism being shown to Rousey and McGregor and got lumped in with them. There was more clarity that guys like Cody Pfister were cans than there is about the guys Khamzat beat being cans.

    I hope Khamzat reaches his potential an turns out to be an elite fighter. But right now the hype vs accomplishment ratio is pretty whack.

    He wasn't just jacked. He was abnormally (like PED abnormally) jacked. And he had a cool style. And he had a dragon ball Z look to him. It's too bad he didn't pan out because he would have been exciting/fun to watch and wouldn't be calling his opponents wife names.

    If he's so overrated, why do bookies have him as the favorite? Maybe you should go bet your basement on his opponent, if you think the bookies have it wrong.
