    They should show Conor taking Holloway down and sweeping Nate.

    The worst part is on one of the promos it has Rogan saying ‘his striking, his grappling everything he does it world class’

    Not that Rogan would ever claim he’s striking is world class though

    Khabib's striking is D-level and his punches are really soft for a lightweight.

    For the fact that his striking is so bad he seems to land quiet a lot and not get hit. Landed 4.34 a minute and only absorbed 1.56, he doesnt have high level stand up but he also doesnt seem to need it.

    To me they should hype up the rest of the main card, everyone knows the main event is going to be a one sided mauling.

    I wouldn’t put it past him. Rogan is the guy that praised Rousey’s striking.

    He has 5 rounds to knock this fool out.

    I will admit he doesn't as good physically as he has in the past.
