    Remember Khabib is said to outrgapple bigger wrestlers all the time in training, even DC. So who you think would win? Fight would be at WW.

    Also, not even sure how much bigger Hughes was, if any.. Fighters cut less weight back then.

    Hughes might be a little too big. Or maybe not. I'd say Khabib is more skilled.

    Khabib has better standup.
    Not great, but better.

    Khabib would smash him, he's better everywhere I believe.

    Nobody would be able to get a takedown and it becomes a mediocre kickboxing match.

    Love Matt but Kebab mauls him.

    They wouldn't be able to rebroadcast it because of the brutality.

    Khabib would win. His wrestling is better than Hughes' ever was. Plus his striking is better too..

    Mma has evolved since Hughes was champ. The weight cut Hughes did is the standard in modern mma and Hughes skills wouldnt break the top 10 as of today.
    The answer is simple... Khabib.

    Fans need to understand that dominant champs from back in the day dosnt have anything on todays mma fighters... GSP is the exception cuz he kept on training and is still improoving.

    Khabib hasn't beaten a top 5 guy yet but sure lets create thread after thread about him beating BJ Penn, Woodley, GSP, Hughes, Lesnar etc.

    Hughes is more proven and is just as good of a grappler

    Woodley was in the UFC while Georges was champ and failed to even earn a title shot because he couldn't win a striking match with Jake Shields.... lol

    There is no chance Khabib outgrapples DC.
    None.

    I don't think Khabib can take Hughes down and impose his will.
