    Both having the same manager, I'm sure they had rough and competitive grappling encounters. I don't recall Usman talking about it or vice versa. Maybe just out of respect they won't mention anything.
    Usman is stronger and bigger but IMO not by too much and I can see Khabib going relentless and full strength against Usman during training... I wouldn't be surprised if he has given him a run for his money.

    Khabib says he enjoys watching Kamaru fight

    I think Usman is physically stronger but Khabib far more relentless in constant pressure and technique...

    Usman is bigger, not necessarily stronger though. Khabib regularly wrestles much bigger people and beats them. I would put money on Khabib beating Usman in a strictly grappling match.

    I'd love to see a grappling match between the 2, would be interesting. IF Khabib did ever go to WW, then Usman would be one of the guys that would be his most difficult matchup, and Woodley. because they are top class wrestlers and both very very physically strong.

    Just because they have the same manager doesn’t mean they train together
    That’s some real ignorant shit
    Does mcgregor train with cyborg and bisping as they have the same management
    Anyway Khabib and Usman are about the same size but Khabib should be more skilled considering his judo and sambo background
    Usman destroys in a fight though

    Khabib vs Usman would be the most boring fight behind Usman and Woodley. Allah willing we will only have to experience the latter.

    Marty can give Khabib a lot of problems. We might just see a wild striking match instead

    Would put good money on Khabib outgrappling Kamaru with ease. A pure wrestling match though, would be pretty close. Khabib would win in an mma fight. They seem to be relatively close friends and have definitely trained together before.

    Usman would beat him with some ease. Lets wait if khabib goes up to win two belts and see him fight someone bigger than him.

    Khabib's a life long complete martial artist with a base in wrestling/judo. Marty is a wrestler that switched over recently to MMA. Marty may well beat him in just wrestling but a fight would be fascinating. Kamaru is one big dude and beat the shit out of RDA worse than anyone I have ever seen, even worse than Khabib. Kamaru and Tyron are both very difficult match ups for Khabib, tho I think he steam rolls Till.

    I don't think he does it to be honest, atleast not fighting Tyron. Tyron would shut that wrestling down and could KO him dead with a shot. There are some tricky match ups at WW for him and I suspect if he does it, it will only be a a non explosive giant wrestler with power has the belt, or someone like GSP that can draw big money. I could see him fighting Askren, as he would have a big striking advantage, could negate the wrestling, or someone even like Colby, who is not that big and Khabib could stifle his wrestling and out strike him Winning two belts at the same time is a very, very, very hard thing to do in modern MMA, and especially when going from 155 to 170.
