Hilarious how some people use the Mendes fight as the deciding factor for Khabib

    Two reasons.

    1) McGregor tore his ACL a couple weeks before the fight. For all you tubby lards, this is as serious knee injury as it gets, you lose all stability on that knee. Generally takes 12 months of proper rehab and training and it never really is the same. This is a significant factor in why mendes could take conor down.

    2) This one is very important. McGregors game has changed quite a bit since that fight, he is nowhere near the same fighter and has completely refined his game (cheers diaz).

    Output has decreased quite a bit, no more balls to the wall with a variety of strikes, he picks shots and uses the same ones over and over and throws a spin kick sparingly. Conors abiltiy to adapt to his strengths has been remarkable and his TDD has improved by a mile as proven in the alvarez fight (Inb4 retard haters bring up Diaz fight while not realising conors style has also changed afterthe diaz fights, now adding COMBOS to his crisp punches as well).


    Conor is going to crack khabib with his superior striking and its gonna get nasty early. Khabib may survive but given how rudimentary his standup is khabib will likely panic and shoot from the hip.

    TLDR

    Healthy, refined game conor is nowhere near the same fighter as he was against Mendes and drawing conclusions from that fight is STUPID

    The only thing khabib will smash is his face into McGregors fist as he rushes in like a crack addled russian pleb

    "Smash" lmao. Guy is a definition of boring decision machine who looks helpless on feet. Conor picks him apart and knocks him out cold.

    Also Conor won that fight by tko inside ten minutes.

    Using a fight Conor lost might be a more sensible blueprint lol

    Yep. Everyone also forgets, every fighter conor has ever faced in the UFC gets hit early and often. Every time.

    Khabib is not mini Mendes. He is much bigger compared to him and Conor will realize that in the octogon. No one so far has been able to stop him once he's got a hold of them and Conor isn't exactly known for his TDD.

    Also, what makes you think Conor is healthy or better than before? As far as we know he could have spent a lot of his time doing coke and drinking.

    Either way

    whatever u say his 3 losses were years apart from each other and all times he was finished on the ground. and alvarez is not some wrestling prodigy he is a wild brawler, that is how he always fights

    Health wise? We cant tell. He may or may not be as healthy going in.

    He is definitely better than 'before' ie before the mendes fight which is clearly eviden in fights after. You dont lose skills in 2 years, in which he competed in that 2 years at the highest level.

    I fully agree with your point - but for a different reason. Khabib is twice the size and strenght of minime Chad. Conor goen straight to the ground and getting smashed till he gives up. Just like he did against the only other fighter he faced who was his size.
