The ONLY time I was entertained by a Khabib performance and thus at least mildly interested in his next one was this fight. Only time I've seen him be a dynamic ground fighter instead of a static one. 

I agree about the Tibau fight but it was obvious that Khabib had improved over that early version himself. The GSP comparison is very apt imo, at least the post-Serra version as both were too focused on defensive tactics and control to ever be truly entertaining.

Khabib's Padded record Before UFC ....

6 fighters were making their pro-debut  ( means extremely padded )
only fought 6 fighters with winning records in his first 16 fights  


When Khabib was about to fight someone like Tony Ferguson who had plans for him on the ground game -- mean lots and lots of blood spilled - Khabib would suddenly have a medical issue and cant fight because he cut too much weight or something else.
