    No flashy shit, defended the takedowns like an average fighter, survived on the ground. That was by far the best version of McGregor. I think his fanboy should realize fighters look mediocre when they fight superior opponents.

    When Ben Askren was asked if inexperience was the reason he lost in the olympics, he said "I just wasn't good enough. I sucked."

    I think McGregor fan should be as realistic as Askren

    Conor McGreggor was only in his prime for two weeks when he beat Aldo that time

    Yes, McGregor is in his prime, but styles make fights. Whoever might dismantle Khabib in the future may get KTFO by McGregor in his next fight. That's what makes MMA so awesome.

    *lots of drinking and suspected drug use weeks before fight
    *2 year layoff

    Those two alone make it hard to believe thats a "prime" Conor. Khabib still a beats prime Conor. Nobody in the division has an answer for that low single. Khabib can hit that from 1/3rd of the octagon away. It completely nullifies striking, especiallu uppercuts and knees so it becomes how well can someone defend the TD with Khabib already on them.

    Pretending this was a top form Conor is ridiculous. Starting a new business, young kid and another on the way, layoff, and obviously lots of whiskey, including fight week. Yea keep stretching that narrative.

    Conor is in his prime. He was just afraid of his recent opponent and knew he would be roughed up for the majority

    He beat an out of prime, coked up McGregor that was more concerned with his liquor sales than the fight.

    Oh well, he already won the war. 2 division champ. I'd stop training hard too if I was that rich and accomplished. Maybe Khabib can match these accomplishments some day if he beats Tyron. I doubt that will happen though.

    How do you even measure if a fighter is in there prime? Too subjective. Khabib clearly dominated McGregor throughout the fight and eventually forced Conor to tap. Whether that was "Prime McGregor" or not is immaterial.

    That was prime McGregor. No excuses. Khabib is just that good.
