It's insane how fast he throws this type of punch.. I think it's called a Shovel-Punch?
He’s way more athletic than people give him credit for
I love him
You looked at some gifs or maybe YouTube highlights at best. There ain't no way anyone's rewatching a Khabib fight. It's impossible. You'd need shark cartridge pills and epinephrine shots to stay awake through one of them.
True story - that's why no one can beat him. No one can sit through the tape to find flaws.
Covers distance like an elite athlete
Khabib has the advantage of being a major takedown threat. Which opens his opponents up for strikes..
His striking is an enigma.
deadly and janky and exctremely elusive. Very hard to get a beat on him.
Yeah, shovel hook.
While this is true, both of the guys in the gifs are mainly grapplers and Khabib didn't really try to grapple them.
Yeah. AKA trained that punch out of him though. It's a risky punch, but obviously effective when it works. It's more common in sambo.
he is very fast for the division, other than that he is not super athletic, no where near a GSP or a benson henderson ...
Regardless, it's always in the back of their mind..
It’s a nice shot. Looks like he’s set up for the right hand then throws the lead hook
I thought the shark cartridge (cartilage?) pills were for something else.
Lol remember when everyone said because of that fight, that Conor was gonna eat him alive?
