    I actually thought Connor looked pretty good against both on the ground. Not sure what you were expecting.

    Diaz he just got worn out and then broken down.

    Obviously Khabib is all whole different league on the ground, but I don’t put much stock in the idea that Connor is hapless on the ground.

    sorry butno where in ireland do they have wrestlers or grapplers good enough to prepare him for khabib lol the country only had 3 black belts back in 2013 i was there in 2012 and trust me the level of wrestling and grappling was veryyyyy low compared to what we have here

    There is an eastern european wrestling coach at SBG Ireland.
    As far as grappling, Conor has Dillion Danis to work with, he is "fine".

    I say "fine" because no matters who he trains with, if Khabib grabs Conor the fight is over.

    Connor has a puncher's chance against Khabib, nothing more.

    Which match do you think presents Conor with a greater challenge, Ferguson or Khabib?

    Kabhib is going to do both of them the same thing, cucuy presents even a lesser danger to Khabib. Cucuy doesn’t even have the punchers chance, it takes someone who can avoid the ground vs him to beat him, not someone who’s willing to fight off his back. Conor at least has that left punch to save his ass. Neither present much problem for Khabib to be honest

    There is a ruggedness to Khabib, a single-mindedness that is hard to stop. But I have a hard time seeing Conor fight in the UFC again, unless Dana gives in and gives part ownership in the company which most likely won’t happen.

    I kinda get the feeling he prefers beating on people.

    Gunnar needs to look out for his own interests too, plus having more quality guys to train with raises the over-all level by pushing each other, even if you already have a guy who individually is better than them (which, incidentally, is in my opinion the real biggest thing that could improve USAWs medal chances [getting all the top guys from different clubs training together, before thinking anything about changing folkstyle into freestyle]).

    I think from what I’ve heard Gunnar is only there for his camps and lives and trains full time wherever he lives

    If Conor fought Ferguson it would be a stand up fight, Ferguson doesnt really shot for takedowns and his subs mainly come from the oponent shooting. Ferguson is kinda stand up guy i guess

    I don't know if you're from the British isles, but all of our wrestling coaches are Eastern European, just for geographical reasons. So I dunno how good or bad his coach actually is.

    I agree with you though, Khabib's style is so different from other fighters and he excels in it so much that i really don't see it making a huge difference if it does go to the ground.

    i was in ireland back in 2012 and i was at a gym where they told me they went to sbg to do the wrestling coaches takedown seminar there and the coach had a weird style and would just suplex guys randomly while demonstrating techniques and hurt a few people they said they left almost broken lol
