    He hasn't cleaned out LW so why should he move up?

    Tony especially, but also Dustin and maybe Gaethje or Al are fights I want to see

    He can move up after that if he wants but we deserve the great LW fights available to us rn

    So all of the guys that cut a lot of weight at WW are afraid of MW’s and all of the MW’s that cut a lot of weight are afraid of LHW’s?

    I could keep going but you get the picture.

    Even worse is that there are dorks like TS who think you HAVE to move up in weight when you become champ. These are the same morons crying about Jon moving up to HW. He doesn’t need to. There’s nothing wrong with someone staying at 1 weight class forever and defending their belt over and over.

    Then Jones* should shut his fucking mouth about moving up to HW... About fighting Stipe...Quit calling out MW.

    The epitome of a bully, and a coward.

    Well duh. Nobody gets hospitalized trying to make weight that's fighting at their natural weight. He's just as big, if not bigger than a lot of 170 guys. He looks dominant at lw because he's a huge lw. The grappling heavy style wouldn't work as well at ww since there are guys that match him in size and strength. He wouldn't be undefeated as a ww.

    Except all the welterweights are definitely bigger than him because they too cut a bunch of weight. People just use this excuse because they don’t like Khabib. He can make the weight and fight at a high level, what’s the problem?

    Conor fans moving the goal posts yet again. Khabib has no business at WW, he has a belt to defend against other 155's.

    Just because Conor loses to Khabib 10/10, doesn't mean you gotta try have these hypothetical match ups at WW LOL. We can all say the same about WW's vs MW's, MW's vs LHW's, there's weight divisions for a reason noobs.

    Askren has called out Khabib several times and questioned his grappling.

    I'm surprised Khabib hasn't taken the fight.

    Why do people continue want him to move up when LW is probably the deepest division with lots of good challengers for Khabib

    He's not the one who openly talks about it. You clowns are hilarious, he gets asked questions by media so he responds, but, if you ever listen to anything he actually says and not just the clickbait title of threads, you'd know he doesn't care about moving up to HW, he actually has said he does not want to unless the UFC pays him enough. He wants to continue to fight at LHW and defend his belt.

    lol @ bully and coward. Sherdorks are so hilarious.

    No, Khabibs body is similar to Max, they're both too small for the division above

    Certain fighters care more about making money, testing themselves or just getting a rush from scrapping, where as other fighters care about keeping their perfect records or are really afraid of losing, so try to make each task be as manageable as possible.

    When you see Khabib lose in Sambo, have an absolute breakdown, it is not hard to see why he has avoided wrestlers and unfavorable match ups, opting instead for strikers or well rounded guys that were not powerhouses like Tibau Khabib learned a lot from that Tibau fight). He is very much like Ronda in that sense, in that a loss would devastate his whole life and he could not mentally handle it. Khabib losing would absolutely devastate him and I do not see him moving up unless a favorable match up presents itself. People like Cerrone, Hendo, Cruz can handle losses much better than guys like Cormier, GSP, Khabib and Ronda.

    Yeah, but these guys cut a lot of weight to make it to 170! They walk around 200 pounds some of them, so what’s ur point?

    Khabib is 27-0 and he will finish his career at 155 if he wont be fighting with GSP or Askren.
    Poirier is next, Ferguson fight has to happen at some point and maybe Conor rematch / Diaz fight or Cowboy/Iaquinta winner

    Wait he has only one title defense and we are dying to see him fight Tony Maybe Dustin and Justin but he has to move to Ww to get injuries?
    If he wins WE ppl will say he is ducking LW

    He just never gets credit

    GSP only fight he wanted because he was a huge fan
