Khabib has yet to fight an elite grappler (wrestler or BJJ). He either fights elite strikers or well rounded fighters. I want to see him vs a Kron or Demien Maia (I know bigger). I think they strangle him. But he would probably just keep it standing in those fights

Khabib would have no need to shoot a double on Kron, he could keep the fight standing and win. It's silly to think he would fight using the same tactics he did against poirier.

Rumor is with out a Gi Khabib smashes everyone - all the black belts of every level.  We are talking the guy that was apparently playing with Ed Ruth.  I think Khabib is a strange case, was rooting for DP, but no man that has ever weighed 165 or less can beat him.

Somehow the rumors of Khabib getting a takedown on Ed Ruth has become 'Khabib played with Ed Ruth.'

If he beats tony I’ll agree that he’s the closest thing to an unbeatable fighter but as of now that’s the fight which holds all the questions for me..

Khabib isn't just a technical master that shuts down any form of anti khabib grappling with positioning and hips, he has this massive strength advantage that a person at 185 lbs would have over a 155 (after cut). Not only is he in the better position at all times, as you move he tightens and puts you in a worse position all while brutally out straining you at the same time. This is what Marcello Garcia looked like at his peak, different style but similar. It took Roger Gracie to stop him and that was a massive size diff.

Kron hasn't fought anyone of note to be even in the conversation.  Much of his game is untested.

That's not to mention the fact that we are talking about practice.

Neiman Gracie took Ruth down several times in their fight and rather dominated the overall grappling..I have no hesitation to think that Khabib does out grapple Ruth in training..out wrestle for takedowns? Probably not but overall grappling, Khabib is much better
