Is Khabib in Conor's head moreso than any other fighter in his entire career?

    The guy flew across continents to throw a dolly at his bus and risked jail time ffs.

    I mean that speaks for itself.

    Just look at this pic he seems unhinged.

    Also, during their backstage confrontation Conor seemed rattled to me. I'll let other people draw their own conclusions but that's my take from the video.



    I think Conor has balls, a true warrior spirit and he believes in himself, but I also feel Khabib goaded him into taking this fight even though it's an awful stylistic matchup, and used Conor's massive ego and sense of loyalty against him.

    When Nate called him a rich kid I literally thought Conor was going to start crying.

    He's biding his time until he mentally reduces Khabib to ashes. If he starts too early, Khabib will be desensitized by fight time, and Conor's talk will not produce the desired stress and cortisol release, so like Sun Tzu he is waiting for the ideal time to strike.

    Macho Dagestani Khabib won't be able to handle it. Heck he already has been saying overcompensating bullshit like he will change Conor's face etc. Shades of "to the death Georges, and I'm serious"...

    "Getting in someone's head" is overrated, the better man will be victorious October 6th.

    Conor holds bitterness against

    Floyd, for sonning him hard
    Nate, for making him pussy out
    Khabib, for taking Artem's virginity, getting him arrested and costing him millions in court

    However, Floyd and Nate are post fight. Khabib is the only fighter that makes Conor bitter pre fight. If he loses this one he fails to defend Artem's virginity, fails to defend his own honor and it will be devastating.

    On the flip side if Khabib gets KTFO in front of his father he would have failed his father and Islam, his father would probably disown him and he would be treated like an apostate by his countrymen.

    Neither man can afford to lose.

    Literally a ton has already happened. Conor literally flew an entire crew from Ireland to New York and attacked Khabib's bus to defend Artem's virginity.

    Conor will bide his time and then unleash a barrage of insults. Bring up the homeless thing, fighting being Haram in Islam, Dagestanis not really being Russian and Khabib not being able to live up to his father's expectations. Conor will probably leave it until fight week when Khabib is cutting weight and irritable, whether it will have any bearing on the fight though who knows?

    To be fair Khabib did stay on bus. So was more like a drive by hand trucking.

    Yes but we're talking about Conor. Khabib wasn't rattled all that much but if you think someone who flew a whole gang to NY, attacked a bus, got arrested and had to pay an undisclosed amount to get his criminal charges wiped isn't taking this very personally you're lying to yourself.

    Khabib is absolutely in Conor's head.
