He has the wrestling based style many claim makes for a "long lasting" MMA career.

But, somehow.

I don't think this guy will last very long.

Obviously only time will tell because some wrestlers didn't last very long. Like Ben Askren isn't just retired, he had to get a hip replacement at what is considered young age for that procedure.

There are many fighters who look like world beaters one day.

Over time, the pressure and grind break them down.They burn out.

I think people underestimate what it takes to compete at a high level over a period of years.

Khamzat I think could end up being like Rampage. Where he wins his fights too easily, doesn't appreciate the talent he has. And turns out to be his own worst enemy.

I don't think his long term outlook will be kind to him.

Yeah Rampage kind of relied too much on his raw talent and it ended up nipping him in the butt in the end but he had other factors going against him. Like for example he basically had a mental break after his fight with Forrest Griffin and he was also badly managed at the time. Though he was able to get a second title shot in the UFC and in Bellator.
