    Not with Khabib around. He’s better than the dudes you just named.

    Ralphie Dos Nachos couldn't win the belt again even if he stayed. Ralph never beating Khabib

    Yeah. He got caught by Eddie and lost a 48-47 close decision against Tony.

    Anyways.. he wasn't going to be champion with Khabib around. Khabib 50-45 all day.

    Now he is just right back in the mix.

    meh you never know rda might have caught him in a submission in a 5 round fight, plus rda 2.0 destroys khabib on the fight.

    RDA was gonna be the more entertaining version of Fitch of the LW division if he didn't moved up during Khabib's reign.

    Rafael is a stud, but he is getting up there in age, and he has a few weaknesses that top fighters exploit. He lucky he fought Felder tonight, and not Makchachev. He would have been cleaning the floor instead of Felder.

    He almost beat Colby TBH, took him down multiple times and even hurt him pretty bad at one point

    He won a round against Usman and came closest to finishing the fight with the kimura

    Since the Lee fight hes clearly been past his best but he still choked Lee. He didnt look good against Edwards or Chiesa b/c hes past it. Impressive he tooled Felder like that even if Felder stepped on short notice

    Not with Khabib and Tony around. But he would've never dropped out of the top 5 like he did at WW and would've kept guys like Felder and Hooker from advancing as much as they did. RDA vs Poirier prime for prime would be really interesting

    Tony poked RDA's eyes pretty bad. RDA dominated him till that point gettyimages-621333402-1024x1024.jpg
