GSP would get mauled by Khabib. As great as GSP was, I’m not sure he could handle the air to the throne in his prime.


#342

GSP is an excellent wrestler. Much better chance of winning than what Connor had. GSP wins in striking too. Would love to see that fight.


#343

He certainly is, his submissions are exceptional too. But at 38 I’m not sure he has the speed and power to counter Khabib any more.

His Bisping bout was a good performance but nothing that would suggest he is anywhere near his prime.


#344

Bisping was a 38 yo beaten up journeyman went he fought GSP. No where near the level of khabib.


#345

Agree, but he still has the game that could trouble Khabib. Khabib would struggle to get GSP down, which is his strength


#346

Khabib takes Cormier down in training regularly and easily. GSP would struggle to stop it.


#347

You can’t base it on training


#348

You can when it comes direct from Cormiers mouth.


#349

Cormier talks up all his teammates. As an Olympic wrestler that is twice Khabib size, I really doubt it!


#350

It’s absolutely true


#351

Anyhow, this is not something that I can deny nor confirm, but I still feel that GSP v Khabib would be a great fight.


#352

I agree. GSP is getting on but he is absolutely meticulous about his preparation. Would love to see it.


#353

No doubt it would still be an intriguing contest, I just don’t think that people should be expecting the GSP that beat Matt Hughes.


#354

It’s usually striking that suffers with age, so I would expect his wrestling to still be at an elite standard, despite his age.


#355

Black Beast vs DC headlining UFC 230. Hilarious, imagine if Black Beast won.

It is disappointing though as Nate Diaz vs Poirer deserves to be 5 rounds, it NEEDS to be 5 rounds.


#356

Cant wait for Diaz v Poirer…Love Diaz he is just a filthy brawler


#357

Bad news… Diaz vs Poirer is now scrapped due to Poirer injury.

Still enough time for a short notice replacement, Masvidal has stepped up and offered it, Conor has said no.


#358

UFC fight cards are looking pretty average for the remainder of the year.


#359

Well said


#360

For those who haven’t seen it. This is a video of Khabib wrestling a bear as a kid.

You really think GSP wants anything to do with this guy.
