    How would you rate his movement? He has great boxing, a dynamite of a left hand and he's pretty fast but I feel his movement will be his key to victory against Khabib, it isn't flashy like TJ or Cruz but Conor has very unpredictable movement, especially when setting up his left hand and you don't know where he will slip or move. Khabib has faced good strikers before but I don't think he has faced anyone with the movement of Conor. Khabib's key to victory is simple, close the distance, grab him, underhooks or body lock, takedown/trip and proceed to smash him on the ground. I think the first step will be the hardest to accomplish, the rest is much easier in comparison. I'm interested to see how Conor gameplans against Khabib, I think he will focus a lot more on movement.
    Still a 55/45 fight, with slight edge to Conor because of his accuracy and like I stated, his unpredictable movement.

    No doubt Conor's movement is next level, as well as his accuracy and explosiveness. Does he still play touch-butt with that dork with a pony tail in the park?

    Either Conor lands a hard punch, or Khabib lands a takedown. Whoever gets what they want first, wins.

    He moves like a grandma with arthritis. Khabib will take him down easy.
     
  9. Footwork is something every fighter should be working on, pairing footwork with ring/cage awareness gives a massive advantage.

    He was scared of getting boxed up. Brock doesn't like to get punched.

    He cuts the cage off impressively as well. If Khabib ends up with his back against the cage, it could be trouble.

    A GOAT level poster appears...
     
  17. The only way I see Khabib backing up is if he's eating combos like poontang at the playboy mansion.

    I am betting Conor but the unknown is Khabibs chin. There is a huge possibility that Khabib just eats Conor shots like they are nothing, walks through everything and gets the takedown. Khabibs head is massive
