    Is Khabib - Tony the greatest LW matchup in the MMA history?

    I say LW, because for MMA overall is Fedor - Cro Cop.

    The bar isn't very high at LW tbh.

    Conor VS Khabib was probably the greatest before....

    Penn Vs Gomi ?
    Edgar Vs Maynard #2 ?
    Benson Vs Glibert ?

    To me it is, and it's probably my most anticipated UFC fight ever.

    It's my most anticipated match since I started watching 17 years ago.

    I was also hyped for Fedor vs Reem but, ya know.

    Yes and there's no other fight close to it.
     
  7. Does Jon vs DC counts? Was eaqually hype for for their second bout. Second fight was highlevel as long as it lasted.

    For the real fans.

    Conor vs Khabib was for the casuals who didn't mind see him getting his shit pushed in

    Lol at Connor being highest level anything at LW. He had 2 fights there in the ufc and is 1-1

    Tony and Khabib are probably 2 of the best LWs ever and will be the LW goats before it's all over

    It seems so right now. But if either one steam rolls the other, hindsight could rewrite the picture.

    The biggest previous one to this was Penn/Gomi, but this fight eclipses it by a sizable margin. Khabib/Tony will determine the LW GOAT. Twelve fight win streak against twelve fight win streak, 12-0 in the UFC against 15-1 in the UFC. The perfect clash of styles to make for a wild and unpredictable fight. General consensus favoring the champion, but the challenger not counted out by any stretch of the imagination.

    Big fight feels personified.
