Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson – Khabib Striking Preview
In Part 6 we went over the unorthodox yet effective striking of El Cucuy, though the focus will shift a little re Khabib’s striking improvements since his professional debut, to UFC debut and most importantly his recent handful of fights.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is without a doubt, statistically and/or every tangible statistic (28-0 with one round lost, and it was close no matter your rooting), the most dominant force become champion in UFC history. Recent discussions about the greatest lightweight of all time by the MMA disinformation crew were actually debating modern-day Khabib vs. BJ Penn in his prime, who’s made 135 and has lost 20 fights (give or take) including one to a dude at a bar.
The anti-Khabib sentiment among some of the most influential people in the business is very real, though he does get the occasional compliment. Listening to “my friend” called the Michael Johnson fight was obnoxious, and his inability to admit he said what he said were as well. Worse still in his, all 5 round(s) dominance on days notice against a very dangerous Al Iaquinta who decisively beat Kevin Lee for a second time after the match. I’ve covered the “amateur-ish striking” subject before, though this time around it is a different focus entirely.
Conor is still the greatest striker in the history of the sport (the Disinfo squad), Kevin Lee and Gregor Gillespie are Khabib’s Kryptonite, never-mind Tony. Can we just wait and see, please? I digress…….
With one of the most anticipated fights scheduled in the heart of one of the least anticipated events in US history looming, I’m trying to get this information ergo breakdowns out into the either as this fight kind of has to happen at this point. Neither Tony nor Khabib has much left to prove at 155 and for the purist there just isn’t a better fight to make on planet earth.
Without further rambling…….
