    - Far better striker than Khabib
    - Very difficult to hold down and is a better wrestler than anyone Khabib has ever fought before
    - Physical specimen - insanely strong, explosive, and powerful
    - Better cardio than Khabib, Volk never slows down

    Size isn't an issue for him as Volk weighed 168 on fight night against Mendes and walks around at 180+

    His reach is 1.5 inches longer than Khabib's despite being shorter

    Khabib 50-42 or submission Round 1

    Wouldn't even be close, the size difference is huge

    Khabib is around 175 on fight night

    Volk was 168 when fighting at FW. At LW he'd be 170+, plus he's longer than Khabib and can outjab him easily
    Mendes is a better striker than Khabib

    When Volk did rugby he walked around at 213. Shouldn't be too hard for him to bulk up.

    This place turns into perhaps one of the dumbest forums I've ever seen when the old man puncher fights

    Volkanovski doesn't even has a wrestling background.

    Everyone beats Khabib, according to Sherdog..

    The most beatable undefeated fighter in the history of MMA.. every sherdogger knows the gameplan, but no fighter has yet to come close to implementing it.

    Khabib sits on him for 10 rounds if he wants.

    Not a Conor fan
    Neither does GSP, who is a better MMA wrestler than Khabib

    Khabib would literally end GSP's life

    He's far better everywhere

    Khabib outgrapples him with ease. You are just to simple minded. Welcome.

    Trying to tell us that Khabib is a better striker than GSP? You must be new to the sport.
