    This is significant because I always see Khabib fans talking about how he is an averaged sized lightweight at best, and use charts that compare his height and reach to the guys he's fought.

    This is misleading because height ≠ size, or else James Vick would be "bigger" than Mark Hunt.

    GSP, Jones, Silva, Fedor, Stipe either didn't cut weight at all or cut a very small amount and never looked drained on the scale.

    Khabib on the other hand has pulled out of a fight due to weight cutting issues on top of actually missing weight.

    He always looks drained on the scale and didn't even make weight legitimately for his last fight.

    Despite this he has always shunned the notion of moving up to his true weight class for some strange reason.

    Not an argument

    Khabib fanboys gonna fanboy, despite the fact that he is a proven weight bully.

    'Surprised' Georges St. Pierre thinks he weighed 170.4 pounds for UFC 158 Nick Diaz title fight


    Georges St. Pierre, technically by his own admission, did not make weight for his UFC 158 title fight against Nick Diaz at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which took place on March 16, 2013. However, "Rush" was well within the seemingly last-minute, undocumented rules of the Quebec Athletic Commission.

    That was a misunderstanding, as GSP was told that they would round down to the nearest whole number

    GSP has never struggled making weight at all and could easily have shed 0.4lbs if he thought it was necessary.

    When supporting contentions, we must first learn the facts. Otherwise our contentions will be silly gibberish and nonsense.

    Misunderstanding or not, George admitted to coming in heavy.

    GSP, Jones, and Silva all cut less than 10% of their body weight to make their respective weight classes

    Stipe and Fedor never cut weight

    These are verifiable facts, whereas Khabib has been documented to walk around as high as 200lbs and have a cage weight of 180lbs when IVs were still allowed.

    Khabib fans keep saying not a blemish on his record but multiple pullouts during weight cuts are definitely a blemish

    In addition to the fact that three of his closest friends have tested positive for PEDs

    Islam Makhachev, Zubaira Tukhugov, Mairbek Taisumov

    Once again, all facts.

    It's not intended to be an argument, because its silly. Show me just one picture where Khabib looked bigger than his opponent.

    He's looked bigger than every UFC opponent minus Tibau

    His arms and legs were 1.5x as thick as Gaethje's

    Once again height ≠ size

    Easily

    1. Conor was a featherweight for years
    2. Conor's waist is half as thick as Khabib's

    Most of Khabib's mass comes from his trunk and posterior chain, which is hard to tell in pictures

    But he's absolutely massive for 155, and needs that advantage to dominate in the way he does

    Conor has tree trunk for legs compared to khabib. His legs are thicker. Conor was only a featherweight with the aid of IVs

    No he doesn't, Conor's legs look big because he's leaner

    Khabib carries more fat but more muscle underneath that fat too

    Khabib looks the same size as Usman when they're standing next to each other, Conor would be dwarfed by Usman.

    Conor was killing himself to make FW to the point of looking like a different person and had bigger reach and height than most FW, a real weight bully

    ..Right.

    Well, agree to disagree. Judging from your initial post, it seems like you've had this argument before and want to go around the carousel again. We'll just agree to disagree.
