    I think Royce handles Kabob easily. Prime Royce was a certified killer, whereas Khabibi struggles to finish fights.

    I feel that although he’d have the takedown advantage, Royce would tie Kabob into a knot once it gets to the ground.

    Thoughts?

    royce was good when people didnt know what jiu jitsu was. Would be similar to matt hughes vs royce. Mma has progressed leaps and bounds since the first ufc.

    Yeah, and he'd also lose to Teila Tuli and half the drunk retards in the crowd. He'd even lose to your grandma because he's completely inept at fighting. Great post and very subtle trolling, hope it brightened your sad day.

    Dont ever use the matt hughes vs hoyce again as an argument, Hoyce was way past his prime by then.

    Khabib would destroy him. It would look similar to Hughes vs Gracie.

    Royce after being out of MMA for years came back and went 1.5 hours with Sakuraba, and even won the first few rounds. By the time he fought Hughes he was 40 years old. Hughes was in his prime and in the middle of his best winning streak, also finishing GSP and BJ Penn. GSP only lasted 20 seconds longer than Royce did. By the time Hughes was 40, he was retired for years because he was losing to guys he should have beat. Age matters, it's not just the simple false narrative of 'no one knew BJJ back then".

    Heck, in his second fight Royce tapped out Ken Shamrock, who was huge, strong, and did know how to grapple. Around the same time Royce tapped out Shamrock, Shamrock was beating legends like Funaki, Matt Hume, and Bas Rutten. All of those fights happened in a 10 month period.

    Exactly, it's moronic to take a fight where a guy is 40 year old, against one of the greatest champs of all time, in his prime, to say a fighter sucked. Pretty much any 40 year old legend would lose to a legendary champ in his prime. That's how age works.

    I started the Kaboob meme. I was criticized fot it. Royce is bigger and was better than Kaboob. Royce easily beats Kaboob primarily due to size advantage, but he was freaking good as well.
