Really because he sure did stop Jim Miller's takedowns.
And the only thing we know about Jim Miller is that he is about as incompetent as Nate is when it comes to defending Benson's takedown attempts. I really dont see any evidence that Jim Miller's defensive wrestling is that much better than Nate's especially given what we saw when the two actually fought.
Nate can't stuff TDDs from super wrestlers like Benson and Gray Maynard or guys like Rory and Dong who are both super wrestlers and way bigger than him.
Khabib Nomediocre doesn't qualify.
Also Jesus ******* Christ please remind me when Matt Hughes got completely shut down by the likes of Gleison Tibau and we'll concede that Khabib is somehow world class in that area.
Also Matt Hughes has actually submitted world class fighters including high level BJJ black belts in the cage, wake me up when Khabib submits someone better than Kamal Shaloraus and we can stop acting like whatever he did in some irrelevant grappling tournament that Mike "I get no hook RNC'd by Karlos Vemola" Massensio also won....
