    People saying Conor has no ground game and that Khabib will smash him because Khabib is the best grappler at lightweight are basing this on the false premise that Nate easily submitted Conor.

    It wasn't Nate's ground game that beat Conor. Nate had to wear Conor down first and tire him out during the standup. He then exhausted him by landing hits after hits and Conor had no answer to that.

    At that point, Nate could have finished Conor in any way he wanted, and that just happened to be via submission so you can't say that Conor has no ground game based on that alone.

    Khabib will be absolutely zero threat to Conor standing up. And fact of the matter is that Khabib has went to a decision in 6 of his 10 fights in the UFC so what makes you think he can hurt Conor iron chin McGregor?

    Seriously, Khabib will take down Conor for one round AT BEST and then get KOed Mini Mendes style.

    False

    Khabib is a top 3 MMA striker in the LW division. If he lands that uppercut, I'm afraid Conor's chin will not hold up and we will see him panic wrestling again

    I like how you referenced Chad Mendes completely ignoring that Chad gassed bc he took the fight on short notice. So by your own logic, a full camp Mendes would’ve smashed Conor. Make sense.

    He gassed because he spent too much energy trying to take Conor down fearing for his life of that left hand. But dread it, run from it. Destiny still arrives.

    People who hate Conor really underrate his ground game. It's just what they do. He could choke out Khabib and they would still saw it was pure luck and his ground game still sucks.

    Khabib will not need to gas Conor standing. Khabib will gas Conor on the ground. His top control is the best in the division and maybe the best in MMA.

    Conor smashed Nate and proceeded to ground and pound when fresh. Nate couldn't do shit off his back.

    Last time I checked, Conor feared for his life and panic wrestled and got choked.

    The current LW champ is Khabib.

    Conor had the chance. He wasn't ready. He said he would be ready, but he wasn't.

    Less talking, more fighting.

    Actually, rewatch Khabib vs Raging Al. Khabib gassed hard during the championships rounds. Conor is a sniper compared to raging Al, and if Khabib gives room like he did with Al, Khabib is getting clean clocked KOed.

    I don't think that you know what "gassed hard" is.

    Because if he had any ground game we'd have seen it by now in some form or another. The only thing we really have to go by is him being submitted and looking terrible on the ground.
