"The other day we started to grapple, and Khabib jumped on top of me. And, I'm like okay, I'm just gonna get up when I want to, but that is not the case," Cormier said. "He is literally the strongest person I may have ever felt."
Cormier is much heavier than Khabib but as the heavyweight fighter described, Normagomedov is a talented individual who knows exactly how to use his size to his advantage.
"It was amazing to me to think a guy that weights 175, 180 pounds, was able to do that to me. It's positional control, it's strength. He's a phenomenal athlete, man," Cormier said. "And, just one of the greatest stars mixed martial arts has ever seen."
Needless to say, don't get in the Octagon with Khabib, no matter how big you are.
