Chael Sonnen may be the smartest man in MMA, and with many of us stuck at home sheltering in place, he asks a question to pass the time with.

Khabib. After one takedown he can just destroy Tony's  penus

Khabib, but the best part would be the original commentary team calling today's fight. Every submission would be "some kind of choke".

Khabib can head butt, or dick punch. 

Tony gets destroyed, sorry.

I watched that video yesterday. Khabib would literally kill Tony. Chael forgot to mention headbutts in the video. That alone would be an unstoppable weapon for Khabib. Not conjecture either, Exhibit A of Khabib literally doing this:

Khabib with UFC 1 rules would be unstoppable.

Khabib bleeds him to death. Spiked elbows, back of the head being fair game, knees to the head of a downed opponent, headbutts...

Chael just leave us to answer this?

What's his answer?

I say Khabib could hold him down for 10-20 "MAyBE 30 minutes.  After that Tony gets position and the tko.

That was a typo, you have to read "MAYBE" in Chael's voice.

Was this fight stopped by head butts?  

Looks to me like they were to maintain action/position and grind out a decision.

Ummmm, no time limit, no stand ups, no need to “work” to avoid being stood up Or doing damage before the round ends? Khabib much more easily that the task in 2020 rules.

Did Chael just dump this and leave? 

I was there with him at the Pepsi Center 2003.

I made friends with the old man in his corner.

Pepsi Center that night was the very craziest shit I saw, in the 10+ years I was close to the sport.

Tony makes people work.  He has cardio for days. He's tough as nails and punishes people at every opportunity.

I think at sometime he would wear Khabib out.

They are both tough as nails.  

I fought in the room for at least 10 years.  I was always scared of the ref.  I was scared to lose because of the ref.  I never wanted anyone to tell me I'd had enough.

Both of these guys have that tenacity.  Both of them have concured that fear.

I think with long rounds, punishment/ a fight to the death.  T ferg eventually gets his opportunity.  He has the will, tenacity, and toughness.

Not saying Khabib doesn't have all of the same traits.  Khabib just doesn't inflict damage the same way.

I Think you remember right.  I think Shamrock/Gracie was 30 minutes+.

"Khabib just doesn't inflict damage the same way."

With his and skillset it's a pretty solid bet he inflicts a whole lot more damage with UFC 1 rules.

A Flash?

30 minutes in round 1.

5 minute overtime.

How much have you seen or remembered Floppy?

I've spent 10+ years in these corners. 10 + in the room with them.
