    This was after being dicked around during conor-alvarez negotiations. He pushed to remain on the card and screamed at dana between each round about how he's gonna smash his boy. Pissed off Khabib is the best Khabib.

    Yeah.. Why not the Edson fight? Like seriously that was a mauling as well. Is it because Khabib called Conor out after this fight perhaps?

    You realise mj only landed because khabib decided to stand with him at first? . He did a facebook qanda in the weeks leading up and was talking about how he wanted to show his striking. ~ Look at the fight , he didnt even try to grapple in the first few minutes. And even then johnson didn't do much to hurt him.

    Posting the Barboza fight would have been perfect. Why MJ again, and why delete the old one? This was a disservice more than helping promoting the fight.

    Johnson was landing that left often in the first 2minutes. If khabib comes wreckless with connor he will get kod

    Actually Khabib is not hurt at all and his legs are fine. He ate few punches but was not hurt. Turn off the volume and without Rogan you will see just few punches landing on Khabib and him moving away.

    Not saying Conor is not going to hurt him, just saying HERE Khabib is not hurt at all.

    that was an interesting fight. I don't think khabib got rocked, but he was kinda hurt , and if you don't agree he got hurt it was definitely an oh shit moment for a fighter.

    Michael Johnson has crazy heart though.

    I think that fight really illustrates two things.
    1) Khabib is hittable. Unless Khabib just surprises everyone with an immediate takedown then we're going to get to see his chin tested.
    2) If Khabib gets Conor on the ground then it's all over.
    Khabib by Round 1 TKO.

    I really just don't want this to end like the Aldo fight where Khabib throws his face at Conor, and we don't get a real match after all of this hype.

    Lmao I wouldn't doubt it. Should have just posted the Pat Healy fight instead if they didn't want him to look too dominant. People can already see the MJ fight if they hadn't deleted it.

    When was the last time you saw MJ reverse someone on the ground or get out of a submission?

    Lmfao it took Khabib 12 ate punches and 2 minutes to get a take down lmao it's only going to take Conor 1 shot and 20 seconds to get the only Takedown of that fight

    Khabib is a fucking bum

    What a vicious man. Conor will be brutalized worse than MJ.

    Khabib's stand up and balance are weird, I don't think he got rocked there. We saw similar shit against Barboza. He just oddly absorbs it. But, for his sake, I hope he doesn't fuck around on feet this long vs Conor. MJ does not move and isn't as precise as Conor (though, he might in fact have faster hands than him).
