    Conor has to land a clean, accurate, shot early in the first while Khabib is closing the distance if he wants to win. This is definitely possible as Khabib's striking is kinda sloppy and he's prone to getting hit while trying to get the takedown but if he gets ahold of Conor, its game over.

    Always had it 60/40 conor cause the fight starts on the feet. Khabibs chin will be the X factor. He will be hit, and possibly clean . What happens from there l dont know. He really needs to work to stay off the cage beause he will get mauled there . Defending a takedown from nate and defending a takedown from khabib are two vastly different things .

    I actually kind of agree. Either Conor keeps tagging Khabib coming in or Khabib rag dolls Conor.

    Khabib is going to get hit, the question is whether he can keep pressing forward.

    I don't think it will be an edge on the seat type of fight, I think we'd know pretty quickly which way it would play out.

    Conor has a punchers chance that’s it. Khabib by whatever he wants.

    This is also a fantasy fight that will never take place because Conor knows he’s getting his ass whooped.

    I agree with TS. No matter how people try to hate in Conor, there's no question he can fight and his history proves that. If Conor can keep khabib at the end of his jab, and stay on his feet he will easily outbox and hurt Khabib. Even if Khabib takes him down, if Conor can minimize the damage he takes, he can still start off each round with lighting Khabib up, potentially hurting him and making it easier to stuff take downs for the remainder of the fight.

    Khabib should probably be favored but not by much. Whoever does win likely makes the other look helpless.

    Anyone that posts they are “about to hit the club” isn’t doing anything or going anywhere.

    Yes,all this feelings about Nate because he did beat the shit out of your hero.
    Dont try to make Nate look an elite fighter only because your love to Conor.

    I can't believe how much of an attention whore you are. It's amazing.

    And FYI....If you think this fight is 50/50 you are literally retarded. More importantly, if you think Conor is ever going to fight Khabib you're retarded too.

    Very simplistic analysis.
    Hard to take seriously.

    The same exact thing could be said for people like you if Khabib takes down and beats the shit out of Conor bell to bell, which is extremely possible.

    Much more possible than Conor knocking Khabib out, in my opinion.

    This fight is 70/30 Khabib' s fight. All he needs is 1 takedown with around 2 minutes time to work. If he gets that, it's an easy win.

    On paper, this is true. But I have better insight than most, and I am 100% telling you that Conor not only lays Khabib out, but probably does it within a couple minutes. Feel free to hold me to this prediction if you want.
