    This is a short 2 min video so I won't have detailed cliffs but it's a nice video of Luke giving well-deserved respect to Khabib and pointing out that he's the only UFC champion to have never been knocked down or never cut in a fight.

    What about Islam? I think he can surpass Khabib. He wont retire at his peak either.

    I’ve seen multiple better fighters during my lifetime and I’m sure I’ll see more. So that’s okay.

    And I say we will never see a poster like Ackmed again. Time for you to retire as well. Thanks for your posts.

    Sincerely,

    Have you seen another UFC champion who has never been knocked down, hurt or cut in a fight?

    Your criteria may suggest this isn't very important, fair enough, but the point still stands we will probably never see another champion with this incredible trait.

    Khabib was just too good at what he does, everyone knew what he'd do yet no one was able to stop it. He was definitely one of a kind.

    Chimaev is Khabib with one punch KO power.

    Almost Fedor and he did this at HW and has more top wins.

    Also, pretty much the only guy the MMA World will never see again is Conor.

    Won’t ever see a prime run like Anderson Silva had by another fighter either IMO.

    Khabib is a master of not getting hit

    You could argue that Khamzat is already the better fighter while Khabib was still active. Khabib has struggled more in fights than Khamzat has so far, he even arguably lost one.

    Will probably*

    He's still wrong, though. We definitely will. Things change for sure bht if a fighter is overwhelmingly dominant at one skill set with just enough to defend themselves jn other skill sets, that fighter is going to dominate.

    In fact, we've already got fighters like khabib in the ufc. Islam is said to ve khabib 2.0, which I dont believe, but we also have Adesanya who has already beaten at least the level of top 5 competition khabib has and also represents a specialist in one aspect (kickboxing).

    Wrong, luke. I get you are trying to say something nice about khabib but you missed the mark with this angle.

    Anyone who disagrees better name a fighter that has a 29-0 or better record

    Never seen a fighter as dominant as khabib in any sport.
