In the Pride era, with the Former Pride Roster, does Khabib go undefeated their?
He would have to have adjusted to fighting in the ring. His style is very cage centric,even though he can score td's without it
All those champs were giants Khabib too small
Bushido Gomi in my opinion can beat any lightweight in history.
Sakurai was really tough as hell as well. Sakurai fought Silva and Hughes, prob the only guy to have fought those two, though I could be wrong.
It really comes down to if Khabib would beat those two because they were number 1 and number 2. I know moviated ___ is a running joke around here, but motivated Gomi and motivated Sakurai is as real as they come.
You'd have to favour Khabib to decision both, I think, but I think he could lose to both too.
Gomi KOs his fuck ass
fuck ass. thats new.
i like it. and i agree.
Fishing for singles isn't going to work. He'd do well to not get stomped and soccer kicked into bolivian. No cage will be a big issue as well. This isn't the F leagues. Pride is the pinnacle of combat.
Khabib fought most of his career in a ring/open mat
All ya gotta do it take gomi down,like Aurelius did.
I know,but current Khabib fouight the toughest competition of his career in a cage. Just something to think about.
Khabib's dominant wrestling + knees and kicks to grounded opponent = number 1 bullshit for his opponents
Just like THAT
Fedor did pretty well in Pride using Sambo as his base, I'd say Khabib would too... eventually. He'd need a bit of time to adjust his style though & develop a better striking game imo
Man look at the size difference. If Ralph is 155 Gomi is a WW there
Gomi is one of my absolute favourite fighters of all time and I fucking love the guy.
That being said he has absolutely nothing for Khabib.
I think he'll get finished by the same "illegal" knee that conor cracked his skull with
He didnt get koed when Conor did it.and it would be in his legal right to throw as many knees of his own.
I love Pride and they had great LW but Khabib dominates them all
IMO the most intriguing match for Khabib would be BJ and maybe Bendo or Sakurai
