    "not big like I am at 155" basically admitting he has size advantage at 155 and doesn't want to give it up fighting guys his own size at 170. Not GOAT talk imo. Cejudo, GSP, Silva, Fedor, Jones, Conor all either bumped up or fought where they cut no weight. While khabib was hospitalized over cutting. This needs to be factored in with GOAT talk.

    He also says he can only be considered p4p #1 if he beats Dustin, Tony and GSP. Guess that went out the window with retirement.

    If he can make lightweight he's a lightweight. It would dumb to go up to the higher weight class when you can make weight in the class below it.

    Cejudo is GOAT and Dana stopping him from taking the 145lb title is criminal. His fights are great, and yet people can't get over their height insecurities. Too scared to let him topple another 1-2 divisions. Idk why you keep bringing up those other guys though, they are roidheads.

    He won a title and moved up and won another. You can't ignore this no matter how much you hate him. Khabib beating Usman changes his resume by MILES

    It's a plus on the resume of guys like GSP and DC moving up weight classes for sure. But it's not a bad thing for a fighter not to move up if he thinks he isnt big enough to have success. That's why we have weight classes to begin with.

    A guy who was hospitalized by cutting weight is big enough for the next weight up. Khabib is not smaller than pettis, RDA, colby, thompson, Sanchez, masvidal and Diaz

    You say that as if weight is a stagnant thing. Hes made weight for his title fights, I'm not interested. Of course a wrestling heavy approach would prefer to be stronger than his opponents. He made weight.

    Now this discussion changes if UFC ever has the balls to do hydration testing, but they won't

    Conor has fought in 3 different weight classes and cleaned out one of them. I
    don't it's wrong to question why Khabib shouldn't move up to WW since he has
    to cut a lot of weight to make LW.

    If Conor beats Poirier and becomes LW champ, I think his legacy as a MMA fighter
    might exceed Khabib's at some point.

    Colby barely cuts and did pretty good against massive Usman. And I already listed a bunch of other guys at 170 who are no bigger than khabib. There is no excuse for him not to move up other than fear of losing the 0
