OP has spent the last couple years of his life trashing Fedor and other Pride fighters only to learn what Fedor did was damn impressive
Khabib’s top 10 wins
Fedor’s top 10:
Khabib’s list is missing Shalarous and Horcher
Fedor’s list is missing top 10 fighters Fujita and Rogers, not to mention TK, Arona, Lindland, a second Coleman win, Goodridge, Babalu (yet gets shit on because he fought freak shows that outweighed him by 150 lbs- sign here if you’d like to see Khabib vs a 300lb’er ha)
Point is, if your way of analyzing fighters (past or present) is to shit on them, you not only disrespect the sport, but you also set yourself up to look like a damn fool in the future.
Khabib is damn impressive. He just beat his toughest challenge in one of his most dominant wins. Poirer is his Cro Cop. A destroyer when he’s on, but has had a few setbacks. He needs the Nog win and that’s Ferguson. A perennial top 3 guy who never has a bad performance. A guy who if Khabib wasn’t around would be a long time champ and recognized as the best LW ever.
This is well thought out, but in no way is Poirier comparable to Crocop. Fedor fought guys who will end up in the top ten MMA fighters OF ALL TIME. Khabib hasn't fought anyone like that.
Your only problem in this thread is going too hard. I agree Khabib has just begun to build an impressive resume as most of his wins are over journeymen. The Conor and Poirier wins we’re huge for him obviously.
At this point Tony has the more impressive list of wins and the coming showdown will determine the best lw we have seen.
For khabib to get into the GOAT discussion with GSP, Fedor, and Jones he needs to beat Tony and at least one more signature win.
khabib has RDA and Iaquinta as top wins, not to mention a win over johnson, who is the last guy ferguson lost to
