tenchu - Khabib rear naked choked him without putting the hooks.
WTF.

I don’t see why people keep mentioning this 

This is nowhere near the first choke with no hooks, nor will it be the last. 

Dustin was exhausted, and Khabib has a REALLY good grip. The position they were in didn’t require Khabib’s hooks. 

Its not that surprising.

Um, i think the ground and pound and being in tired in an actual fight might have led to that

the best BJJ grappler on the planet gets choked without hooks if he's taken huge ground and pound and is tired AF

RNC on a fresh, experienced fighter needs hooks.

RNC on an exhausted, overwhelmed fighter doesn't need hooks.

Why didnt he just side step when he went for a takedown? 

Yeah bad game plan. He should’ve just outwrestled and outstruck Khabib.

Khabib uses the one hook for positioning so he can go into striking. He gains control with one hook if he cant get the arm under chin he loosens them up and tries again vs taking the back and being stuck behind then opponent without being able to damage. Does Not fit his style. This isn't bjj. Smh.

Too bad there’s so many fuckin’ scrubs on this place that think they can do better

I lovre it.  They make the odds silly good.  Poirier should have been +2000, and not because he sucks, but because Khabib is just that much better. Nearly 50% of this board thought Dustin would win but he was Khabib's arguable easiest fight in a long time.  Tony will also get beaten with ease but this place will again make the odds tasty.

Dustin actually had Kabib hurt and had a chance. The grappling difference was too great to overcome though. Great fight.

I thought it was silly.   If it were me, I'd assume Khabib is looking for the takedown so I just would have kept my distance and peppered him with jabs until he's ko'd or 25 minutes runs out and I win UD.

Yup every side step he should land a hook and he should have reversed the rnc and tapped khabib out. Super easy don't know why he didn't do it

Standing up from back mount is a wrestling strategy, not BJJ.

A BJJ Black Belt strategy would be to elbow escape to half guard.

My guess is he didn't want to get grounded and pounded?

I think this is a troll thread. 

 

I hope it is.

I do feel MMA guys get graded far too quickly, not saying he’s not a black belt but you can see the levels between a BJJ blackbelt from a pure bjj background vs a fighter who learns BJJ for years and then gets awarded a black belt
