    Conor will knock him dead. Khabib has dogshit striking and Conor will survive on the ground if it even gets there.

    Irish people are genetically similar to Iberians and some Irish are even similar to Middle Eastern peoples.

    Because I have never despised anyone to the level I despise Conor McGregor.

    Not really. There are "black Irish" with darker features who are believed to have Iberian or Plig (Romans who colonized the British Isles) admixture, but genetically, the Irish match up more with Icelandic people, Scandinavians and people from other Celtic populations and other parts of the British Isles.

    Because I want the LW division to stay active and not be locked down for another 2 years.

    I dislike Conor but dislike Khabib even more.
    And Conor is 10x times more fun to watch.

    You mention that Khabib pulls out of fights, and while this has happened from time to time, at least he signs for them in the first place. As others have mentioned, if Nurmagomedov wins, the division moves forward, if McGregor wins, the division stagnates again.
    On a less important note. If McGregor wins, Sherdog will be intolerable for months.

    Because Conor has triggered so many. Repressed memories from when they were bullied at school.

    Or

    inability to differentiate between the persona that Conor projects to make money vs. the real conor.

    In khabib you have a fighter that misses weight, is injured all the time, babbles about religion, agrees with animal cruelty, ties to criminals that commit violence/theft/murder.

    With Conor you have a fighter that never pulls out of fights, fights when injured, stiffens people, makes press-conferences exciting instead of "let the best man win" or "i'd like to thank god", petitioned for gay marriage in ireland (that's helping people and advocating for equality), gives up a heap of time to visit children in hospitals, and has helped improve fighter pay across MMA (you're welcome Nate - before Conor you were a 20k/20k fighter).

    Nothing I've said is a lie. The fact people can't weight up all the variables is quite sad really.

    Because Conor represents a shitshow. Outside of being popular, he has slowed down the LW-division significantly

    I didn't care about McGregor when he was moving up through the Featherweight division. I didn't care about McGregor when he became the Featherweight champion. I still don't care about McGregor, but if him losing would silence the horde of casual McGregor fans, then I'd cheer for Nurmagomedov.

    I pretty much felt the same way about Rousey during her run.

    I find his trash talk repetitive, fans irritating and dislike what he represents and how he influenced the big drama show bullshit entertainment era.
