    When was the last time that happened?

    Maybe Wonderboy vs Woodley?
    DC vs Jon Jones?
    What others?

    Its not a good look for Conor, he ate elbows from Mendes. However, Al Iaquinta kept it standing vs Khabib like 2 full rds.

    Khabib doesn’t finish people on the ground, especially people of Conor’s caliber.

    Best case scenario for khabib is he lays on Conor, but Conor’s push kick/front kick will sap khabib’s energy like it did to mendes.

    The more I think about this fight, I don’t see many options for khabib to win.

    He will rack up points with take downs and possibly control. Conor is a competent grappler and won't be raped though.

    Silva/Sonnen is a great call.

    Hughes/Alves was a top wrestler vs a top striker.

    Conor has one finish in three lightweight fights. Might be a little premature to be calling him the best striker in the division

    it is impossible to have this matchup unless cm punk clones himself

    He actually has 2 finishes....

    Seriously though, Eddie and Nate are incredibly hard to finish so it's hard to hold that against McGregor.
