    Chandler does have some serious power though; every tine he connected Charles looked hurt but he was smart enough to grab hold of him.
    so did i. I was expecting him to get knocked out in the second

    I think Chandler´s chin is fine. From what I have seen of him, his toughness and athleticism are what have gotten him this far. It´s not like Olivera put him out with one shot.

    Tony is tough as nails, but he needs to retire before he ends up as a full-time expert on History Channels "Ancient Aliens."

    Put him down though with one shot.
    I haven’t seen much of him though. Just taken an instant disliking to him to be honest

    Agree, love TFerg but he is cooked. Even before Justin landed on him in that fight he looked a step slower with movement and reaction.
    Tonight he looked horrible, against RDS his fluent counter punching was excellent, now he looks like he has no reaction and can't pull the trigger and stiff as on his legs.
    The commentators summed it up. With his unique wild reactions that came instant and natural made him a beast. Now the reactions are gone he looks lost.

    Like I said, it´s fine.
    He can take a good shot, it´s just that he isn´t that skilled. Chandler is the guy who literally practices the same thing a thousand times instead of working on a thousand different things.

    Olivera cracked him and was able to finish him. Chandler himself dropped Olivera and was unable to do so. The better man won.
    Not everyone has to be iron chinned. Most top Lightweights in the UFC have all been KÓ´d. It´s a crazy division.

    These fights proved Khabib would have destroyed Fergie and Olveira, Khabib had better fundamentals and was harder to hit.

    It is looking like Khabib could submit all these guys in the same night by what ever way he decides to.

    Nah, don´t go playing that game. You just never know.
    Yes, it does look like Khabib was above these guys, but he spent a very short time on the top. He has his flaws and the division is stacked with talent.

    Not really. We will never know what wouodve happened if khabib fought tony when tony was still good. Hes had a rapid decline since gaethje battered him and obviously khabib would beat him now with ease.
    But not charles. I think charles is the only one who would stand a chance on the ground with khabib and he is much better than khabib standing so who knows.

    Tony lacked fundamentals and got by on athleticism, the game has left him behind.
