He has won all 24 games, including a victory over famous boxers such as former UFC light champion Rafael Dos Anjos or 6th ranked puncher Michael Johnson.

Khabib’s strength lies in his ability to wrestle and hit the floor (the ability to attack when the opponent lies on the floor).

He is the youngest champion in UFC history when he has a heavy bottom championship belt at 23 years, 242 days. During his competitive career, Jon Jones won 22 out of 23 matches.
