Lets face it, he tried stalling Khabib most of the fight and got pummeled on the ground. Got dropped once too. If that fight had no rounds and stand-up rules, Conor would have been down there the entire time. It would have been a complete bore-fest. It would have been interesting to see what Conors strategy without the stand-up rules for each new round.. There's no way he would get so close and be that careless.
