Khabib Nurmagomedov has been retired for close to 2 years now. He last fought at UFC 254 against Justin Gaethje.
Ever since then fans have been speculating many what-if scenarios including Khabib Nurmagomedov.
What if Khabib Nurmagomedov had fought Georges St-Pierre?
What if Khabib Nurmagomedov had fought Kamaru Usman, who is the P4P best fighter in the world now?
And now Khabib's former manager, Ali Abdelaziz has gave a fascinating verdict on Israel Adesanya vs Khabib Nurmagomedov super fight.
“Khabib now weighs 200 pounds. If Khabib comes tomorrow and cuts to 185, he would stop Israel Adesanya in three rounds. I see it. He beats heavyweights, light heavyweights, welterweights, lightweights – he’s unstoppable now. He’s like a tractor trailer."
Ali Abdelaziz says Israel Adesanya won't be able to stop Khabib's wrestling.
Adesanya has had some trouble with wrestling before. Jan Blachowicz exploited that weakness of Adesanya and beat him.
However, whether Khabib can do the same to Adesanya without a sizeable weight advantage is debatable.
