    I was under the impression that Conor beat Khabib in rounds 1 and 3, and that he was ahead until a lucky takedown in round 4, despite serious injuries and a particularly bad camp. But I've always heard fans/haters/whatever you wanna call them say that Khabib took Conor's soul. Now I'm hearing that Conor got KO'd in the first or second round, courtesy of best of analyst in the game, Dominick Cruz. So I don't know what happened anymore.



    Help me out, faithful, intelligent Sherdog community. What's the truth of the Conor/Khabib fight?

    The most impressive thing in that video is how Cruz doubles down about what he had previously said that conors "tactic" was to let khabib smash him so khabib would get tired while at the same time changing his original statement to "he was hoping khabib would get tired"

    Thats some jedi mind trick he tried to pull there

    ALL 3 judges scored it 10-9 in round 1 for Khabib.

    Shall we take the lead from them from now on? They have a thorough understanding of MMA and are competent at their jobs aren't they? Or should we try and reason things out instead?

    Conor got beat up for the majority of the fight. The one place that people thought he could dominate, he ended up getting dominated.

    That is what happened.

    I can't take Dominick Cruz seriously anymore since the moment he said that Conor was trying to gas khabib out by letting him punch him repeatedly in the face.

    You should stop making posts and study reasoning ability a bit more. You didn't even reply to me. The button says "post reply". That means you'e supposed to reference something I said in some way.
