Who has Khabib faced that has good takedown defense other than Tibau?
thinly veiled khabib hate thread
You do know that Michael Johnson was a college wrestler right? Healy was as well.
Shalorus was a wrestler who represented Great Britain in an Olympic Qualification tournament where he placed 8th
Trujillo was a four-time NAIA All-American wrestler.
Perhaps the question should be.....Who can stop Khabibs take downs? I am calling nobody @55.
You do know Myles Jury dominated MJ with his wrestling right? All those guys have bad takedown defense in mma.
Lol. Trujilios mma wrestling blows. He got taken down in almost every fight and held down too.
Johnsons losses have mostly taken place on the ground. He's been grapplefucked by unimpressive competition.
Healy is pretty good but struggled a lot. Not UFC level IMO
RDA has pretty good takedown defense and is a BJJ black belt, still got mauled on the ground
Basically everyone he's fought in the last 6 years has better tdd than McGregor
Eventually he will get his guy down no matter how good their tdd is. Amazing grappler.
he's faced nothing on the level of Conor and that includes all of the sambo championships he's been in.
Khabib 0-24 in TD attempts
Tibau was 2-2
Khabib got out wrestle when he fought someone with good TDD.
I can't wait for Khabib to take Conor's strap. That MJ fight was telling.
Just rewatched Khabib/Johnson on UFC fight pass on 55 HD TV with 3D turned on. I absolutely believe that if Khabib decides to stand with Conor as long as he did with Johnson he is getting the KTFO inside one round.
Johnson's TDD is non exsitant. My fat, drunken ass could do as good a job of stopping Kabobs take downs.
Did you forget the first round where Johnson connected 6 TIMES!??? Conor will steal Khabib soul and send him back to Russia.
Thanks, I was not aware of this....I swore he had a take down that fight. Tibau only had one from what I remembered. http://www.fightmetric.com/fighter-details/032cc3922d871c7f Either way, That is one person, with one take down.
