Good fight. This or Ferg wouldve been a better fight on Saturday . Hopefully we get to see this so we can get a competitive match instead of another one sided "money fight"

I think Kevin Lee beats em too. Terrible match up for Khabib. Lee has to make 155 though which may be more difficult than the fight itself.

If Lee didn't have a glass chin and questionable tank I would agree.

Lorenthz -

Definitely not equal wrestling. Better hands yes but definitely not on the same wrestling level

Kevin tires out underneath Khabib.

Gotta laugh at all the countless threads here with desperate clutching of Ferguson's and Lee's ball sacs now that McGregor was turned into roadkill. Very entertaining.

On the contrary, Lee will come in laughing at Nurmy's standup and get his head taken off. The Eagle wont even need to get him down to the mat for that one. Next.

Right, the UG has been fun to read the past few days. I am a CM fan but also a fan of Khabib, just find it so funny people are so butthurt over this fight. It wasn't like it was a robbery or anything, CM got absolutely destroyed in the fight.

I actually think Dustin and Gaethje have more challenging styles for Khabib, but that might just be me. Dustin is really dynamic with his attack and has top tier "well roundedness" and Gaethje is basically a guy you have to kill in the cage to beat. Not saying either would win, but both pose interesting stylistic matchups for Khabib outside of just Ferg and Lee.

Styles make fights, and it'll take a wrestler that can negate Khabib's takedown game to beat him, so Lee might do it. Might.

It is a good match up.
Similar strength and attributes.

I think people under estimates Khabib's stand up because it isn't flashy.

Khabib beat Al Aquinta on the feet and stood toe to toe with Connor in the 3rd round and beat Connor standing.

Kevin is more explosive and looks better and flashier than Khabib.

But it's the punches that lands that counts and the ability to take punches.

Khabib may very well have the better timing and chin to beat Kevin. I don't know for sure but we can only find out when they fight.

Wrestling wise, again, Kevin is more explosive and could very well get Khabib with his double leg takedowns.

But what happens when it hits the ground?
Is it possible that Khabib simply stands back up and eventually tires out Kevin Lee and then Khabib takes him down and mauls him.
Much like another wrestler name Kevin (Randellman) who took down Couture repeatedly then eventually was taken down by Couture and beats him.

Or simply that Khabib scrambles and reverse Lee and get top position after Lee's initial takedown.

With this two fighters, we know that the guy who takes the top position has the advantage and will win the fight.

All the above scenerios are something that we have all seen from Khabib.

But it is fight and anything can happen and that's why I also like to see this fight.

Now that the circus is over!!!
