Bravo: Tony Ferguson is a challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov hasn’t faced

in #dlikelast year

As I keep saying, Tony Ferguson is the only one who can give Khabib a run for his money.

For those who don't know, Tony Ferguson has a Blackbelt in BJJ under Eddie Bravo's "10th Planet Jiu Jitsu" (to all Joe Rogan fans out there, this is where he got his black belt too).

10th Planet is a different animal than the more traditional/well-known Gracie School of BJJ; in that the former is No-Gi training that is more designed for MMA fighters.

This could be a good fight but I think if Khabib can strike he can win. I do not see Tony Ferguson trying to out wrestle Khabib.

Good point; but, Tony can hold his own on the ground and destroy Khabib in a standing game. Plus, Tony will not gas out like Conor did.

Everyone should be able to at least agree that this would be Khabib's greatest challenge -- at least with Tony, there's an equation. I don't care what anyone else predicted -- Khabib picked everyone else in the division apart; not Conor or anyone else every stood a chance. Tony is the first challenge in a while -- or ever -- that would be on equal / near-equal footing w/ Khabib's legendary skills.

Tony is good at stand up but Khabib isn't bad himself there. I don't think Tony destroys Khabib anywhere but I think on the ground no one in MMA pound for pound is better than Khabib.
