Childish fire !
Punch him in the face.
Poirier will gas out
Talk about mma math at its finest.
Johnson is not a better striker than Dustin. Shit happens. I wouldn't pick Johnson in a rematch at all.
I agree with you on most things. You are correct but his striking is basic and its feasible he is caught sooner or later. Dustin is more than capable.
Cain was a similar way, beating up better strikers such as jds due to the threat of the takedown.
I suppose what you just described tells us the perfect type of fighter to best khabib is in fact a world class elite BJJ guy with serviceable/ decent striking like werdum was for cain.
Werdum had absolutely no fear of the take down and peiced cain up.
But then we have the other example how a less well rounded fighter with one danger area can still win, like ngannou beat cain.
Everyone is only human, khabib can be hurt and beat up
Punch him in the face
Hopefully a quick flash KO in the first minute.
I wanted to argue with you, but you're completely right.
A LW version of Werdum seems like the best matchup to beat Khabib. I just can't think of anyone like that at the time being....maybe Ortega improves his standup and moves up?
Given the current contenders, I don't see Khabib losing outside of a flash KO though.
