I can't help but think about rousey vs holm lately with all this Connor vs Khabib talk. I've been drawing a lot of comparisons to Ronda vs Holly and I'm beginning to favor Connor more and more. It was the last high profile grappler vs striker match I can think of right now. We have seen with ronda that world class grappling gets you nowhere without strong takedowns against strikers with good TDD. Holly was able to outclass her so badly on the feet and using distance control that ronda looked like a complete amateur despite dominating so many opponents in the past. I see Khabib being similar to ronda in this regard. He is second to none on the ground, but had to rely on using the cage to drag his opponents down for the most part. I think it's fair to say that khabib has better hands than ronda, but that's not saying much. However I believe ronda is the better finisher. Khabib mostly grinds out his opponents. Looking at Connor and Holly, I think Connor is actually better on the feet. His distance control is excellent and one of the best things he does. When it comes to the ground game Connor has a better chance of survival against khabib (getting back up/finishing the round) than holly did against ronda. I see him being able to play matador with khabib and probably ripping into his head early on with hard fast punches just like holly did to ronda. His striking is so vastly superior to khabib I think it's going to be overwhelming. Whereas I don't think khabib will be quite as dangerous on the ground. What do you guys think? Is it a bad comparision? Is khabib better at getting his opponents down in the open that I'm giving him credit for? Let's hear it.
