    A WW Khabib would ragdoll GSP, a LHW Khabib would ragdoll Jon Jones, a HW Khabib would ragdoll Stipe, and same goes for the lighter divisions.

    He is the most devastating fighter with the most dominant skill set ever in MMA.

    Alhamdulillah.

    Why don't we get the ray gun from Honey I Shrunk the Kids and find out?

    Are you buying cocaine from the same place Jones is?

    A LW Khabib arguably lost to Gleison Tibau. Just stop.

    Actaully, scaled up, prime Jose Aldo is the GOAT

    WW Aldo would beat GSP
    HW Aldo would beat Stipe

    The only hard fight would be Jon Jones, it would be a war

    Jon Jones would kill Khabib if they were the same size, he's literally a video game character.

    He has a very dominant fighting style. This is true.

    Please name me the most accomplished wrestler that Khabib has fought in the last 5 years. He's partially so successful because the top of LW doesn't have many high level grapplers.

    Let's have him defend a few more times before we get carried away with the GOAT talk. That being said, he's pretty f'n awesome.

    He is great but he hasn't beaten enough top competition to be the GOAT, he needs another 4 or 5 title defenses before he could be considered.

    I do think he beats all these guys if they were the same size, but let's cool it on the GOAT talk. He definitely has GOAT talent and dominance but he needs a couple more defenses.

    He beat Tibau every round on every judge’s card but casual ‘s are entitled to their opinion. If you are looking for ACTUAL losses Tony has 3 of them.

    Yep , a D1 wrestler like Askerin with his tremendous striking defense might not get KTFO for 9 seconds this time instead of 8.

    I am a Huge Khabib fan......but he isn’t even in the Goat conversation yet. He may be someday but he is probably 3 good wins away assuming he wins every round.

    Plenty of high level grapplers with good hands. None at the top of LW

    You sound triggered. I notice you don't quote the complete nonsensical post by the TS though.

    yes, my post was the outlandish one by comparison.

    Khabib fans in a nutshell. The new most deluded fanbase in MMA history, taking the throne from AS' fanbase.
