After Khabib’s win over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, Khabib again made his case stronger for the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world after submitting Poirier.
Following his win, there was a man who claimed he can take Khabib down. None other than, Bellator’s very own champ-champ, Patricio Freire, believes that if he’s given a chance, he’d knock Khabib clean out.
According to Poirier, Khabib has deficiency on the feet where he can catch him. “Khabib is very tough, has phenomenal wrestling and sambo, but he has a huge deficiency on the feet so I can catch him, nothing is impossible. I think he’s very tough, 28-0, but another fighter from Rio Grande do Norte, (Gleison) Tibau, put on a very tough fight with him, and I think there’s a path to beat him. I believe we can do it. If my hand lands — and it would
We all know that beating Khabib is no joke, but if Poirier has that kind of confidence, there’s sure to be something to look forward to.
