Most importantly are the takedowns and Barboza is going to get pummeled. He does have good skills getting up off his back but he's dealing with a completely different animal than he's ever faced before. Even if he gets up he will get dragged down to hell again and again until he is exhausted.

Barboza's best hope is a hail mary shot that needs to be set up at the beginning of each round.

I am not trying to go against the grain of all your posts. I agree that Khabib will have his way with Edson, but I think if Edson can trust his tdd, and use his thunderous low kicks, and powerful check hooks he has a good chance against khabib. Will definitely need to maintain the center or he is fucked.

I think Khabib grappling is too dominant for this weight class, and the only fighters that will beat him are Tony and Conor.

I really hope he doesn't get injured and figures out his weight cut. He's an absolute beast when he makes it to a fight

If Barboza can manage to get Khabib to backpedal a lot he might be able to land those kicks. I don't know about tdd when nobody other than a roided up Tibau could stop his shots consistently.
