    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

    Eventually he will get his guy down no matter how good their tdd is. Amazing grappler.

    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.
