    NICE!
    Instead of a neck crank, McGregor will tap to an RNC.

    So this bum will make all the difference, let me guess. Taller, better, stronger, more versatile version of Khabib....

    Good Mcgregor needs someone who can block punches with his face for the post fight brawl.

    Gunnar escaped that Demian Maia body triangle - in fact, he escaped Maia’s full backmount 3 times.

    He got a schooling that night from Maia, no doubt, but make no mistake: Gunnar Nelson is a wizard on the ground in his own right.

    But he isn't the one fighting Khabib. He's a grappling wizard teaching a striker how to escape a Russian bear.

    I’d love to see khabib against a BJJ wiz. I guess Toney will suffice.

    And you think Gunnar's skills will automatically become Conor's....There is nothing of Gunnar's skills that would stop Khabib from smeshing...in fact...Khabib would smesh Gunnar too...

    Maia let him escape. He was carrying Gunnar.

    The hate in this thread is funny, Gunnar is 16-2 with one of those losses being a split decision (Ponzinibbio loss doesn't count). Great bjj accolades and he's very fast and explosive, he was always Mcgregor's best training partner and still is.

    Gunnar is a better grappler than Khabib
    It isn’t going to make a difference to Conor because he’s so far behind both but Gunni is indeed a better grappler than Kebab.
    He’s just very undersized for his division and stay true to his principles of being against weight cutting while Khabib kills himself to make 155
