    I remember my emotion when I fight with Justin Gaetjhe in the last fight. It was like when I went to the cage, you know this guy hit like a truck. Nobody hit me harder than Justin Gaethje. His kick, his punch, his left hook, right uppercut.”

    But I make him hit me. When I go to the cage and I was like okay I’m gonna go bring him to the deep ocean. Deep ocean is like I m gonna make him tired on standup I’m gonna bring him on the ground and finish him there.”

    “First of all, what I have to do because he got very good wrestling base. He is a very good wrestler. And in beginning of the fight I knew this guy don’t let me wrestling. I go through on his punch, kicks. You know it was like everything what happened with [my] father. Like I would think [I have] nothing to lose.”

    “My coach tell me listen to gameplan, listen to game plan, be careful, head movement. Yes like take him down but I don’t listen everything what my coach says but because I was very emotional.”

    That's what I was telling people right after they fought. Gaethje landed harder punches on khabib than anyone else. Harder than Conor, harder than the punches from Michael Johnson and Poirier that people think actually hurt khabib when they didn't

    Man he really has a legendary chin, to be one of the goat you really have to have a crazy chin, which is more impressive that GSP was able to do what he was able to do with what I believe is/was an average chin.

    Yes, Justin has power and Khabib a great chin but I think RDA packs the most power @ LW.

    Too bad Justin has sub-par sub-defence.

    This is why GSP turned into a conservative wrestler middle to late in his career, the man knew his limitations, while he had great striking, it was always like playing with Fire.

    If you want to beat dis guy, you go for the stomach. Give him unlimited Tiramisu. Now, he no fight, he no canmake weight and you win. Easy. No other way.

    Gaethje had all sorts of ideas heading into that fight but Khabib just walked through all of it and got him out of there quickly. I’m sure the leg kicks hurt as well but Khabib don’t have time for all that.

    I think so. Khabib gets his head off center and looks like it lands in the clavicle area.

    Khabib must have a granite chin along with an excellent poker face. I remember Gaethje landed some solid leg kicks and Khabib grimaced for about a second before continuing his attack. Actually makes the fight that much better when info like this is released. Gaethje himself said he felt like he needed a battleaxe if he wanted to beat Khabib or something like that lol. The respect is clearly there between the two of them.

    It would be ridiculous if Khabib didn't have an iron chin with a skull like that.

    His defence is wild, I've seen Rodtang hit himself and take punches on purpose harder than anything Khabib has ever been hit clean by.
