    Since 2014, these are his opponents.

    Rafael Dos Anjos - Well Rounded, but primarily strikes.
    Michael Johnson - BRAWLER
    Edson Barboza - STRIKER
    Al Iaquinta - BRAWLER
    Conor Mcgregor - STRIKER
    Dustin Poirier - Well Rounded, but primarily strikes.
    Justin Gathjie - BRAWLER

    This guy is not seeing Tony Ferguson. Hell, prime Edgar would give him problems.

    Khabib is NOT the GOAT, Bones/GSP are. Both have way more title fights and have fought all types of fighters.

    Some people just can’t get over Khabib being great.

    There are barely any high-level offensive grapplers left in the UFC. Tony Ferguson hardly wrestles, which is why he lost the Gaethje fight.

    The actual problem is he hasn't faced a high-level Black Belt like Oliveira or T.Ferg.
    Poirier and RDA are good Black Belts, but not world championship level - and seeing as how Khabib is world championship level in Sambo that should've definitely happened. And Poirier even had him in trouble for a second with his BJJ.

    Also not Khabib's fault that no high-level wrestler made it to the top to contend for his title like you say. But actually Gaethje IS a high-level wrestler, he just has no bottom game and no BJJ and that is far more important against Khabib.

    Oliviera is so high level that he got GNPd and finished on the ground by Felder.
    Let that sync in.

    I didn't say he wouldn't beat him, just that he hasn't faced a world calibre BJJ guy as a world calibre Sambo guy. Also styles make fights. Prime T.Ferg wouldve been the most interesting match-up anyway, Oliveira was just an example of someone who arguably has world championship BJJ (although many would dispute that).

    Khabib is blessed he didn't have to go against Charles Oliviera, Tony, or fighter Kevin Lee.

    As much as it pains me to say it, khabib wrecks everyone at lightweight, I do t care of their credentials. Edgar would get annihalated

    Ferguson existed. But he pulled out every time the fight got close.

    I'm a Fedor fan, but if Khabib fought Tony, we'd be seeing repeat of Fedor v Werdum.

    With just less striking.

    Well duh, why do you think he's so adamant on killing himself to make the LW limit despite failing multiple times?

    He needs that size advantage to be dominant and he wants no part of WW with all the elite wrestlers there. Picture him facing the likes of prime Hendricks, Koscheck, GSP, Usman, Colby at WW.

    They'd be stuffing his takedowns like Tibau did all night long.
