    conor is the moneyfight, khabib is the legacy fight. if someone beats khabib he gets honored in legacy in a big way.
    everything can happen in a fight but i think conor has 2 minutes in that fight to do something relevant and conor has the first minute in the second round.

    McGregor throws front kicks in all his fights pretty much, nothing new.

    That’s not khabibs style of wrestling.

    Pro tip don't throw front kicks at Khabib. If he grabs a hold of your leg you'll be in for the worst ride of your life.

    Also practice running not TDD. You're never gonna get good enough to defend the take down in this short of a time frame.

    I think that's mostly the camera angle. You're gonna lean back a bit if you put your hips into a front kick.

    i disagree, although i would like it.
    The fight can only go two ways, unless something wild happens -McGregor pieces him on the feet, or he doesnt.

    If Khabib gets him down, Conor will turn his back, drop his shorts, and present his potato-chute.

    If he trained TDD 6 hours a day until September, he will still get taken down by Khabib as soon as they tie up.

    But McGregor has shown he can knock anyone out before they even get near him.

    It's a great match up, really. The best striker versus the best grappler in the sport today.

    Think the guy was just trying to hate on Connor,who throws a front kick with a straight back and no hips involved

    I dunno, I think his kicks are pretty legit. His low kicks / muay thai style kicks are meh.

    Not sure where this Idea came from that his kicks are mediocre, he does some Interesting movements / unorthodox shit In there from what I've seen. Throws oblique kicks, spinning kicks, capoeira shit.

    The fact that there is a picture of Conor throwing a front-kick is absolutely irrelevant.

    Do you honestly believe Connor is ever going to fight again, let alone in Russia?
