Which I don't believe is really that "unknown" but you never know... The fact of the matter is that the last time we saw a weakness in Conor's grappling was 3 years old (against Mendes). A much smaller fighter was able to take him down multiple times and cut him with ground and pound. We really don't know how much his grappling skills improved since then. I'm a conor "hater" but I'm an objective person and I know that many people will post the Diaz shoke gif but the reality is that that's a 50/50 evidence for me since Conor was wobbled and completely out of gas. He showed good TD defense against Alvarez. But Alvarez was already hurt and he's also not an elite grappler, he's is a very good wrestler but not elite. What that being said. I'm very optimistic about Khabib winning this fight due to the fact that I believe that Conor has not improve his grappling/wrestling that much; but again as much as I would like to deny this, I can't, is not impossible to improve and while I agree that you cannot improve that much in just a couple of years... You know that there is always "that guy" that is very talented and is capable of improving in such short time and completely out of the ordinary, can Conor be "that guy"? You never know, I don't think so but it could be that he's a incredible talented athlete. Most elite grapplers lose when the their opponents have sufficient grappling skills to defend take-downs and ground attacks. The great majority don't lose because they "got caught", yeah there are occasions but they are outliers. The majority lose because they either failed many TD's attempts and eventually they get "caught" and/or when they achieve the take downs they do minimum damage on the ground and spent a lot of energy, get tired and consequently they no longer have energy to achieve more take-downs. Ironically speaking. The way to beat Khabib would be with grappling as well and having better striking. For example ere is a little secret, I would terrified if Khabib fights Kevin Lee.
