In the realm of mixed martial arts (MMA), few fighters have left an indelible mark like Khabib Nurmagomedov. His reign as the UFC lightweight champion was nothing short of extraordinary, characterized by unparalleled dominance and an unyielding will to win. But could anyone ever surpass his level of supremacy? Daniel Cormier, a former two-division champion and a close observer of the sport, weighs in.

The Main Difference Between Islam Makhachev and Khabib Nurmagomedov

Both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev, another rising lightweight contender, share a common opponent in Dustin Poirier. Poirier, a skilled fighter with a well-rounded game, faced both Khabib and Makhachev. Cormier acknowledges that Poirier’s experience against Khabib gives him a unique perspective. He had felt Khabib’s strength in grappling, a recognition that informed his approach when stepping into the octagon.

Daniel Cormier also opened up about the main difference between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev.

“So when I watch them, I think the dominance is different because Islam will stand with you more than Khabib was willing to. But it was in the idea that you knew exactly what Khabib Nurmagomedov was going to do to you and nobody could stop it.”  Cormier said on his ESPN show “Good Guy/Bad Guy” with Chael Sonnen.

“With Islam, sure, you’ve got more things to worry about – you’ve got to worry about the striking. But with Khabib, he literally would tell you, ‘I am going to take you down and maul you and beat you up,’ and no one could stop it. I don’t know that we’ll ever see anybody more dominant than him.”

As Cormier reflects, it’s unlikely we’ll witness anyone as dominant as Khabib. His legacy extends beyond mere statistics; it resides in the fear he instilled in opponents, the inevitability of his victory, and the way he transcended the sport. While Makhachev’s path may differ, Khabib’s shadow looms large, a testament to his unrivaled greatness.
