    He's got a huge frame. I could see him fighting at 170 easily, even 185 and winning fights.

    People who fight and train with him says he feels like a 205'er.

    He doesnt want none of 170. He kills his kidneys every day just to not fight that kind of challenge.

    I’d say he’s a good call for top 5/title contention at 170, but 185 is pushing it.

    Styles make fights. Romero obliterates him but he could beat Whittaker.

    Yeah I totally agree on Romero, but I think Whittaker would be a major problem for him. If Romero struggles with the takedowns on Whittaker, I don’t really see what Khabib is gonna he able to offer

    He could be champ at 170. Fringe top 10 at 185. Can see him beating guys like Israel Adesanya, terrible matchup for Izzy.
