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

    So his torn acl let chad take him down 3x in round 1. Or in round 2 where mendez could have kept him down whole round had he not gambled on the guillotine. Even with a super healed.. Above average acl. He will get taken down easily. Mendez is tiny compared to khabib. Mendez has less types of takedowns and techniques than khabib by far. Do u think khabib at aka isnt on a team that can help him exploit conor even more than mendez did.? Sure a patially torn mcl was a factor, but mot as much as no camp was for. Mendez. Conor still threw all kinds of kicks vs chad, so didnt seem to effect him that much. I think the threat of khabib taking him down changes conor style far more than mendez did. He knew mendez would gas, everyone did.

    1.Mended took the fight on short notice, and look what he did to your hero.

    2.Khabib is light years away in grapplingcompared to Mended.

    3.Khabib's ground and pound can be traumatizing, comparable to Fedor and Velasquez IMO.

    4.He possessed a suffocating style of grappling that sucks out the oxygen in you.

    5.Conor is a grappling dummy, his only chance is to make this a stand up fight.

    Mendes owned him? Are you stupid? Or did you mean to say mendes won the first round?

    Khabibs not gonna strike with him...

    First punch he blocks or Conor misses he's gonna get a clinch and force the takedown.

    This is absolutely false.

    Kavanagh was on the MMAHour immediately after the Mendes fight, and he told Helwani that Conor damaged his ACL earlier in the camp, but was "100%" 3 weeks out from the fight. That's more time than Mendes had to get ready. Conor was lying about it being 80% torn, for obvious reasons. Kavanagh had no reason to lie, and clearly is better informed than anyone.

    I've repeated this fact a number of times in the past week, but the billshit continues.. I'm going to do you Sherdorks a service make a thread when I have the time, with a timestamped link to the vid with Kavanagh's quote.

    My only problem with Conor winning is it means he will hold the best hostage for another 2 years

    Conor is going to be completely "stuck in the mud" if Khabib gets him down. They are completely different levels of grapplers.

    Its going to be extremely ugly.

    Props to Conor for taking this fight because the way I visualize it going is terrible for Conor.
