    Everyone looks unstoppable until they lose. And EVERYONE eventually loses.

    I bet you said the same thing about Aldo before his fight with Conor to. It’s called a gamblers fallacy.

    The only one who has held the belt hostage so far is Conor. Not only in one but 2 divisions.

    Khabib won his belt and was already willing to defend against whoever.

    Conor's title defenses = 0

    He just paraded around with the belt as long as he could until the UFC finally found the balls to strip him.

    Get off Conor's dick.

    "Everybody looks unstoppable before they lose". Tell me one other fighter right now that has a clean 26-0 record or even in mma history, how many people achieved that? There is Jones with one DQ loss and he is on steroids but nobody else even comes close. Khabib is special and he will prove it yet again. And no I did not say the same thing before Aldo fight. Aldo is a standup fighter and Conor can knock out anybody in standup. As far as I remember I picked Aldo but gave it 60-40. Khabib is a completely different animal with GOAT wrestling and supreme cardio which is what Conor's weaknesses are. He will destroy Conor. Now if it was Feegusson, I would be a lot more worried and if Khabib's zero goes away it will be because of Fergusson. I would still pick Khabib though, just not this confidently.

    If anyone is sticking around it's Khabib.

    Conor has made way too much money at this point and he's just too unpredictable. 1 or 2 more circus fights and he's done.

    Dumb thread.

    I prefer khabib's fighting style; I like his mettle; he's a cooler guy (doesn't need to pay people to tell him how to dress/what to wear; has pants that actually fit); has not been holding the division hostage; fights people who are his size; wears an awesome hat.

    Well for one, Conor's probably not gonna be around for much longer anyway so a loss wouldn't really matter too much. And second, because it'd be cool to see the first UFC fighter reach 30-0. So gotta root for him on the way to 30-0.

    Because it's going to be extremely enjoyable to watch an arrogant loudmouth get ripped apart and humiliated by a bear wrestler.

    Nothing wrong with that. I actually find Khabib's fights more entertaining than conor's, to be honest. Conor's fights are mostly just striking, and if conor is winning the fight, then he's just dictating range and outstriking his opponents, and there's also very, very little grappling in his fights. Also, a lot of times Conor's fights have so much build up only to end in a round or two, which is amazing but sometimes very anti climatic (cough 13 seconds cough cough), which leave the fans wondering how rematches would play out.

    With Khabib, you get the full spectrum of MMA— He'll have like 8 minutes of grappling, and 7 minutes of striking and trying to close the distance per 15 minute fight. Not only that, but his fights go on a little longer than Conor's typically do, thus more MMA, and more suspense to see if his opponent can make a come back. After the end of a khabib fight, he has so thoroughly dominated the fight that there is no question whether his opponent would do better in a rematch or not, there is no question if any of Khabib's wins were a fluke, where as with Conor, one gets the impression that a lot of opponents he beat would likely do much better in rematches (Max, Mendes, Nate, Aldo) there's doubt with conor's wins because he doesn't thoroughly dominate them the way Khabib does.

    Conor is a douche. Many of his fans are douches too. Conor holds up divisions for years at a time and sits on belts. He's the essence of spectacle and circus, which isn't why I watch mma.

    If he wins again who knows how long he stagnates lw, one of the best divisions, with his bullshit.

    I'm rooting for Khabib everyone knows I know that he will annihilate McGregor,

    Not a fan of either of these two but the fact remains that Khabib has McGregor's number.

    Khabib possessed everything that can make McGregor fall into his knees,

    Ring rust, ground game problem, limited gas tank, if this goes to grappling McGregor is surely dead.

    and add to fact the McGregor trained in the the "yes" gym with Irish Edmond.

    Im rooting because Khabib actually fights. If Conor wins it will be by round 1 tko or just possibly round 2 but then he will do some crazy shit for the next two years calling himself the best ever and don't actually defend shit.

    His 26-0 doesn’t mean anything in this fight. It doesn’t give him any extra advantage. From a practical perspective Khabib and Conor are 0-0 against eachother.

    Spoiler alert: Khabib won’t stay undefeated his whole career.

    What are you talking about? Conor has a very real and clear chance of losing. Saying Khabib takes him down and gnp’s For 5 rounds is very likely.

    On the other hand it’s Khabib Stan’s/Conor haters that don’t seem to realize Khabib is equally in danger of losing by getting pieced up by a vastly superior striker before he can even get him down.

    Khabib being 26-0 means nothing in this fight

    You don't know that, unless you have a time machine that can go to the future and come back, its possible Khabib is the greatest to ever lived and retires undefeated!

    I have a feeling Khabib will defend his belt successfully and dominantly.
