    (Yes another Khabib vs. Conor thread)
    Now, I'm not gonna be a shit head and just act like Conor isn't 100% dangerous. Conor can 100% starch Khabib, I personally don't think he will, but we'll see.

    One thing is for sure tho, as soon as Khabib even clinches with Conor, Conor's fucked. He will never get up.

    I think if Khabib gets him down in the 1st, Conor will be gassed, and dazed from the pounding.

    I can't believe Conor fans think he can even hold his own against Khabib with the grappling, just because he's a fuckin brown belt, but he can put him out with that left hand.

    I agree with you ts.. once khabib gets Conor on the ground its over. Even If they standup again Conor will be worried for that takedown for the rest of the fight

    Where does this myth that Khabib always gets the takedown comes from?

    He very often need to fight hard for it. To his credit, he never stop trying. He chain together takedown attempt after takedown attempt. And by never stop trying, and because of his crazy fight tempo, he gets it in the end.

    It works best against bully strikers. With that i mean aggressive power strikers who fight going forward. They dont like to go backward.

    Conor is a aggressive counter striker.. That may be bad news for Khabib.

    My point is that its NOT that simple as Khabib getting a takedown right away.

    He will gonna have to fight for it.

    And thats gonna be VERY dangerous the first two or three rounds.

    Nothing is true about what you said. You’re leaving out a lot of context. What kind of tear first of all? Partially MAYBE. Mendes was busted for a growth hormone releasing hormone, not steroids. And how the fuck is it short notice for Conor who had a full camp? Mendes was the one truly on short notice. My apologies...you got the round right.

    “as soon as Khabib gets a hold of Conor it’s over”

    ...

    but Khabib gets a hold of nearly all of his opponents within the first round yet ONLY ONE first round finish in his ten fights in the UFC.

    You want to say he hurts his opponents so badly that even if they survive the first round they’re pretty much done for and yet Khabib has ONLY ONE second round finish.

    Khabib is a baaad man, but his myth has surpassed his might.

    This fight is a toss up and the recent poll of which around 1000ppl on this site have voted sees it 55/45 in favor of Khabib. I think that’s a fair spread.
