    Dont see him losing any time soon tbh. Covington gave him a good run for his money for the majority of the fight though. So him along with Burns have the best shot.

    Khamzat Chimaev. I'm being half-serious. The guy is just 2-0 in the UFC, and I try not to get caught up on hype trains, but with this guy it's hard. The guy has that smothering Dagistani top pressure, but he dives on submissions like a BJJ ace. His D'arce choke is beautiful.

    I would love to see him fight a guy like Tim Means or Alex Oliviera to get a better idea of how he handles the gate-keeper types. Mike Perry would be another good test. Normally I argue that prospect should be taken along slowly, but with this guy, why wait?

    He’s another Mountain Russian? Count me in *jumps on the hype train.*

    Burns, if he catch him in a submission. But probably Usman will keep it in the clinch, and foot stomp him, and win a UD

    I feel like burns is a lesser striker than Masvidal. I think Uzman knows how to beat those types of strikers who dont have the stopping power. You need a guy who has lots of 1st round finishes. So that 1 mistake causes him to lose the fight.

    Khabib has no intention of EVER moving up that's pretty obvious. He wants GSP to fight him at 155 ffs.
    I would pick Usman over Khabib at 170. Even Colby would give Khabib all he could handle. I would also slightly favour Colby due to his insane workrate/cardio over 5 rds.

    Could be Stephen Thompson , his style is so unique he sometimes makes good fighters look average .

    Thompson made a prime Masvidal look average and won every round
