Would Khabibs chain wrestling work on a 170 lb Anderson Silva and make him look like Barboza?
Might do. Might look like Sakurai though. Or Newton.
Maybe but Anderson is way better at locking down and stalling as well as aggressive with the elbows off his back, plus he is bigger having never fought lower than 167 so who knows. Might have been interesting but Khabib probably gets Newtoned or violated in the Thai clinch when he tries to tie up with Anderson.
Anderson can tire wrestlers from his back, so it would be a pretty tough fight for both men stylewise. Anderson also has a great gas tank, I'm still not so sure about Khabib.
Anderson by KO
Tough fight but Andy pulls through. He's dealt with great wrestlers in his career.
Anderson by submission.
I doubt it. Anderson probably crushes him with knees if he comes close.
I really don't see where the "Anderson always struggled with wrestlers" nonsense comes from.
I'm going w/ khabib.

For fuck sake, Silva fought at 185lb.
Get a grip you fool.
Anderson Silva at his peak was unbeatable
