Those leg kicks did seem to be a problem to Khabib, but khabib can just get a takedown whenever he wants so it doesn't matter

Those leg kicks were hurting him too. His squeeze strength is ridiculous. The way he sucked Gaethje’s legs in from that position and goes right to mount is beastly. Dudes savage.

I picked a submission  but thought Justin Gaethje would last longer since being a wrestler and all -- LOL!!
Justin doesnt do wrestling-- thats why Ferguson did not use a good game plan.  Tony Ferguson should have have went to the ground game with Justin from the first start.... submissions like RNC or Darce would have been available.
