    Khabib losing to Max/Dustin
    Jon Jones Losing to Santos

    I know Santos is not a high calibre fighter compared to Dustin or Max
    but just a loss getting added to Khabib or Jones resume
    which one would be more shocking?

    Jones losing to anyone at LHW would be a bigger upset than Khabib losing at LW. Jones has beaten insane opponents with absolute ease.

    Jones has about 15 top 10 wins.
    Khabib has about 3 top 10 wins.

    Poirier and Max both have better striking than Khabib and have a chance. Jones is better than Santos everywhere and Santos isn’t really an elite guy.

    Jones not testing positive would be pretty shocking.

    I agree but khabibs 27-0 is kind of a big deal

    You've got that wrong. Khabibs 27-0 is nowhere near as big a deal as it sounds. He has 3 ranked wins ever. He's fought mostly cans. People call Fedor a can crusher. Fedor has 12 top 10 wins. 12. Khabib has 3...

    Jones' loss is from beating the shit out of someone. It's bogus. He is the most flawless fighter ever p4p and his record is hilariously more impressive than Khabibs. And I absolutely despise Jon Jones.

    Jones has looked vulnerable a few times. He could have lost to Belfort and to Gustafsson that first time. Khabib never lost a round until his fight with Conor, and during that round that he lost he was never in trouble. As well, if Santos catches Jones with one "lucky" punch, it's all over. Max won't do that to Khabib, and Poirier is less likely to than Santos vs. Jones, in my opinion.

    I would be more shocked if Khabib lost.

    Holly beating Amanda would have to be considered crazy. I’m not sure what the actual odds are or will be. But I’d consider it a huge upset. Bigger than anything in the OP. But, that’s just my opinion.

    Either can lose in a flash of opposing inspiration. The thing that would shock me is either guy getting dominated, and that could happen if they survived getting their bell rung early on.

    The Gus fight wasn't a split decision toss up. That fight adds to his invincibility. He showed he can survive wars and that he has a granite chin. He was partying doing cocaine before the fight and still won a unanimous decision after his opponent put up the best performance he could muster. We saw in the second fight how the first would have turned out had Jon taken it seriously. And then Belfort damn near tried to rip his arm off only to wind up a bloody mess and submitted by an arm hold himself. He's shown he can handle whatever is thrown at him.

    Khabib has 6 top 10 wins. Healy, McGregor, Johnson, Barboza and RDA were all top 10 when Khabib fought them. Al was bumped up soon after they fought..
    At least present your argument, with the facts..
