    He should do it. More action less fantasy talk

    A 225 lb khabib would be scary. Theres a lot of high level olympic wrestlers his height that weigh that much. Kyle snyder is the same height as khabib he won the olympics in wrestling. With all that said any high level hw destroys swole khabib.

    if that were true he would do it since heavyweight is so shallow and they get paid so much more

    Obviously these guys have world class elite skills,but the pacing they set is a huge key to their success. I dont see them being able to keep that pace against much bigger guys.

    A bunch of heavyweights today are awful.

    Derek Lewis would beat both of them. That's how big a difference 100 pounds makes.

    Lol they'd get totally annihilated at MW. Tony got put on queer street by lando, any UFC HW would laugh at him and then just end his life. Pure cringe when lower weight fighters say this sort of stuff.

    Yeah because heavyweights are getting paid more than Conor and Khabib.

    It’s pretty crazy to say that, but Tony is crazy - that’s what makes him a great fighter. He doesn’t think he can ever lose - not even as a heavyweight. That’s the attitude every fighter should have. Donald could have used some of that last night - he was way happier than a losing athlete should be.

    they could both get over 200lbs with their frames I don't think it's that unreasonable to think they could beat some low-level heavyweights.

    Yet Tony and Khabib kill themselves to make 155. Yeah, that makes sense.

    It makes you wonder if UFC will ever have a James Toney type.

    A guy that comes from that 155 or 160lbs range, all the way up to heavyweight and becomes a champ or fights for the title.

    I guess the closest we've seen is Rumble, though he wasn't particularly successful at the lower weight classes. Penn another close one, but not quite that Toney level consistency at all those weight classes.
