just a hypothetical matchup but who would u guys favor?
I would favor Khamzat to brutally finish Gunnar rather quickly.
Nelson isn't that good.
Seeing as Gunnar got 30-25’d by Maia, this would not end well for him
so far the verdict is gunnar would lose. i disagree, id think it would be very interesting
who else should he fight tho that isnt in the top 15 yet that would be an interesting fight?
Gunni by RNC
Gunnar gets hit a lot. Good grappler and might present a good test on the ground for Chimaev, but he shouldn’t try to strike.
id love to see him fight Chiesa next personally but i dont think he'll get someone that high up just yet
He should be fighting the low end of top10 because I believe he would beat some of these guys.
He's already completely crushed the 3 guys they gave him. They've pushed shittier prospects quicker. Let this guy lay waste to someone in the 6-10 range then fight a top5.
Khamzat with ease
Khamzat is way bigger and way faster. Tough matchup for Gunnar. He really should be fighting at LW.
he fought 2 no names in their first ufc fight and then gerald whats his name... lets not lose our shit just yet about this guy
what ever happened to ponzinibbio btw? he would be a good matchup
There are numerous guys he could fight in the top15 that are of no interest to me because he'd easily beat them...like Lawler who is 15th.
Khamzat would beat him easily. he is done.
Diaz, Pettis, RDA.....all those guys would be wrecked by him.
IMO this would be a showcase fight for Khamzat. Gunnar is one of these guys with an aesthetically pleasing style but actually kinda sucks. Also, his reputation is increased because of his association with McGregor.
I think UFC would like to have Khamzat fight someone with a number beside their name, so they can justify giving Khamzat a number
I’m all for Chimaev tearing through everybody. It’d make for an exciting time. And he has looked great, so far. That being said, who knows how he’ll look once he faces really good competition. Or even specialists like Maia or to a lesser degree Gunnar.
I mean, two of Gunnar's weaknesses are his wrestling and slow starts, so yeah, I'd have to go with Khamzat.
Chimaev by whatever tf he wants. Submission, ground and pound TKO, KTFO on the feet. No way Nelson makes it past 2 rounds.
Gunnar takes limbs home.
