    Agreed, but he better not mess around with those crazy chin up flying knees. Grapplefck him and he's got a good chance of winning.

    Khabib will rule the LW for years. Mark my words. Fighters will be migrating to other divisions tired of him.

    He has a very good chance. Pettis won't be able to open up against someone with such high level grappling.

    It's going to be a war between Pettis, Khabib & Benson. I predict that pettis will win against melendez and then fight khabib who beats him. Benson gets the shot at the title against khabib. Who else can see this?

    I agree. He'd cling to Pettis and maul him.

    People will turn on him after he wins the title and defends it for a while. It seems a lot of the people on these forums hype him up and love him but I see a lot of backlash and boring talk after he continues to dominate the title scene with his grappling base.

    For the record I like him and don't find him boring.

    Does he have a fight scheduled?

    Can we slow down the hype on this guy please? Its way too early to talk about how many times he will defend his title IMO.

    I see take downs and a blonde wig.

    I agree. That grappling is sick, If Guida can grapple fuck Pettis into a decision so can Nurmagomedov.

    Thing is I see him losing on his way to the top via not being good enough of a striker. I think top 5 wrestlers with good striking - like Bendo, Melendez and Thomson beat him bad.

    He isn't going to dominate anything until he learns more than 3 striking combos. As I wrote in another post top 5 wrestlers with good striking - like Bendo, Melendez and Thomson beat him bad.

    The only reason I think he stands a good chance against the champ himself is because he's nightmare natch up for him.

    religion and communism don't really mix. i'm sure nurmagomedov has political views, however, i'm also pretty sure they don't favor communism seeing how communists tried to obliterate all religion
