2020 is a weird fucking year
i feel like these latest fan question tweets are planted to give him PR opportunities.
This probably makes him feel better about that lose.
Tapping to the "best in the sport" is less humiliating than tapping to a bum I guess.
It's obvious he respects khabib as a fighter
How could he not? He did get smashed by him
Least he rates khabib unlike his fanboys
...lol at him having the answer...
He should stop using twitter and go fight.
Exactly. People never seem to understand that you can talk trash to a fighter to try and rattle him while still respecting him for his skillset.
He knows Khabib is GOAT. He just can't say it so this is the best he can do. And he knows he doesn't have the answer but hoping he wins by some flash KO miracle. Once he enters the cage with Khabib, he will once again cower in fear with no eye contact.
looks like his manager took his twitter away
I'm sure khabib respects conor
Khabib walks every fighter down at some stage during fights. It was conor trying to force the mistakes early with pressure in every round
But at the beginning of each round he was keeping a safe distance and circling
I don't think conor beats Khabib, but he has the best chance
Coach Jav says the same
That's not true at all.
Healy, rda, tavares, shalorus, Conor, Al iaquinta, and so much more he's allowed them to pressure him in the beginning.
Barboza and gaethje was the only ones he walked down from the get go.
But I'm sure he respects the ability.
In Conor’s press conference QnA he did in Moscow in 2019 he said that Khabib was truly great at what he did, I think Conor has always had respect for Khabib’s skills but just wants to tear him down, like I’m sure Khabib has a lot of respect for Conor’s skills as well
He showed more respect to conor than others
He might not have walked everyone down like edson, but he was circling much more with Conor and clear he was looking for low singles
He was extremely wary of conor early
Cynicism is the new truth.
I think Khabib would have had a similar showing against Gaethje, but Gaethje was so terrified of getting taken down he didn’t have any intention of actually trying to hurt Khabib lol
Conor recognises his father's achievements
Justin landed a couple of good punches and obviously the leg kicks, but for a 'D1 wrestler' he looked terrified of the grappling
What happened to Justin trying to keep the action in the middle and away from the cage? He was on the back foot right away
People shit on conor's grappling, but he done much better than the D1 wrestler
Still can't help but try and throw a bit of shade in there by calling him a grappler fighter rather than just a phenomenal fighter imo.
Holding gloves, grabbing shorts, kneeing on the ground, grabbing the fence does not = grappling skill or take down defence.
Khabib got to Conor's legs within 15 seconds of the fight, it took 4 minutes to do the same to Justin.
