Remember when Shergoofs actually thought Alvarez was a “bad match up” for Khabib?

    Now apparently this waddling Punch Drunk brawler is the Khabib Haters new “savior”...

    Khabib doesn't have the power to put Gaethje away.

    Since when did Khabib have the striking and power to put away Justin.

    Alvarez is also a stylistically difficult fight for Khabib, so is Justin.

    Khabib lucky the rankings saved him from the wrath of Felder

    He doesn’t need to “put him away” to win. He can still smash him for five rounds.

    He’s got the wrestling to keep it standing since Weird Al was able to do it. And he’s got the power to knock his ass back to 570 A.D.

    Khabib has pretty solid power considering his hands are so tiny

    No one is denying that. But look at this from a stylistic point, D1 wrestling with great power.

    He can keep this standing and bang away bro.

    Nobody is saying Justin is 100% going to beat Khabib, it's just a good fight stylistically. Wrestler with great pressure, cardio, and power vs Khabib

    Also, I just love how you have to write every single one of your posts in bold font to be a hipster.

    Khabib has been given favourable match ups but we ignore it because we hate Conor

    No.

    Nor do I remember Lee.

    Fergusson is the chosen one. Unless he isn't. Then Gaethje is the chosen one.

    Anyone who can shrug off his takedowns is a threat to Khabib. Styles make fights.

    Eddie is a very good defensive wrestler with superior striking
    Eddie has lost vs superior strikers not wrestlers
    Eddie would be a live dog vs Khabib

    Any good hairline reader knew what the outcome of this fight was going to be long before it occurred.

    What happened after he got the TD? Oh...he stood right back up

    {<jordan}

    What if he does that against Khabib for 5 rounds? Scrambles back to his feet each time

    Eddies problem is getting clipped hard
    Could he fight Khabib without getting clipped?
    Sure, Conor was clipped so damn hard because he had to watch the takedown, Khabibs raw striking is overrated. If Eddie could be competitive grappling wise its definitely not a gimmie fight for Bib
