    Assuming they both fought at WW. Can prime Shields whom GSP was afraid to go to the ground with match Khabibs grappling skills.

    Keep in mind Shields will be a lot bigger. Would Khabib try to keep it standing and kick box K-1 Shields

    A bigger, stronger Khabib? I'll take that over shields.

    Khabib would KO him on the feet

    Shields by dec

    Khabib wouldn't sub shields and would be tired after a few rds

    One of Khabib's easiest matchups. That would be the fight to break out the flying knees and never used subs.

    Jake Shields got thrown around by Lombard. Khabib by whatever he wants

    Lombard was quite literally TREE times the size of Khabib + PED

    He had a big frame but was 5'8. Can't believe he fought at MW

    Khabib imo

    Far better striking and control, especially from clinch into good positions

    Wouldn't be as easy as Justin on the mat but Khabib still takes it

    Shields survived Henderson’s right hand and then treated him like a little brother for 4 whole rounds...

    People are severely underrating Shields. I would favor Shields in this fight.

    Shields outgrappled Maia. Let that sink in.

    Both of them could beat Khabib.

    Im not a fan of this example because Henderson was nursing a very bad back for this fight.

    Shields is too big, Khabib had 60%of his takedowns stuffed by a drunk Conor McGregor and was taken down by Trujillo. Jake rawdogs him.

    He beat Dan Henderson. I’d say he was pretty good.

    I’d strongly favor Shields. There’s a reason Khabib fought at LW and Shields has impressive wins up at MW ffs

    Khabib wouldnt even go to WW and you want him to face a former MW champion who outgrappled the likes of Henderson and Maia? Weight classes exist to protect the smaller fighters.

    This has got to be a troll or the stupidest thing I have read on Sherdog in the past couple of days.

    Name one person that has outstruck Khabib on the feet. Now think about him vs. Jake Shields once more..
