    You know it.
    It’s what people have been saying about these rankings: a win over Tsarukyan (or indeed Makhachev) is 9000x more impressive and meaningful than a win over Gillespie or No heart Hooker

    Lmao Arman barely got past OAM, who is a journeyman at best and has already been cut

    Islam got sparked out by a BJJ dude

    Also Lee is not even close to a D1 wrestler lol

    Why is this even thread worthy? Of course they'd fuck them up. there is a reason they always fight chancers and late replacements. Nobody wants to fucking them. These two are gonna fight again for a title in the future. Arman is a future champion.

    That doesn't mean much tbh.

    It took Khabib 22 seconds to put a D1 wrestler to sleep from the time he touched his leg.

    Lets wrestle. lets wrestle

    On the ground? They would probably be knocked out first lol. Both have been stiffened by lesser guys

    Nobody is going to embarrass gillespie on the ground. He's not gaethje. Unlike gaethje, gillespie is not only a higher level wrestler, but he has shown the ability to grapple with black belts, and he's shown relentless cardio.

    That was a very good fight. I don't think Islam has it in him to dominate like Khabib. The Armenian dude seems legit.

    lol, my choice of words failed me. Obviously we've seen him literally embarrassed on the mat, laying their unconscious; but I don't think anybody will embarrass him in grappling exchanges.

    D1 is the worst base for MMA.


    Even Capoiera is better.
