    • Went toe to toe with McGregor and dropped him
    • Showed no hespek for Gaethjes striking and battered him toe to toe
    • Stood with Johnson after being wobbled and landed clean on him
    • No hespek for Barbozas striking and went toe to toe with him several times
    Hes landed on every opponent with ease.

    Threat of the takedown plays a big role in his ability to pressure. When you're a dominant grappler you're the one that decides where the fight takes place.

    I like Khabib and he's insanely skilled, but that's not how it works.

    (He is however, statistically speaking, the most effective fighter amongst the G.O.A.T candidates when it comes to the ratio of landed to absorbed significant strikes.)

    I honestly give Khabib a 40% chance to beat Floyd in boxing, Conor took rounds off him and Khabib outboxed Conor.

    Khabib is one of the greatest fighters ever but if you really believe that he's the next best striker - you're an idiot.

    Even Cormier is a better striker than Khabib.
    He can actually KO people standing and can actually do something in a weight class above him.

    Fedor in his purime was the most effective by a good margin. He just has a lot of past purime fights affected his stats

    he was statistically the least hit fighter during his purime. His sturikes absorbed per minute were lower than purime Anderson, Lyoto, Cruz etc. and offensively he was obviously destroying too
