    I never said khabib originated anything. You're strawmanning the argument, but alright man. You're the expert.

    No. You said he learned it from Khabib. Eddie did the exact same thing to him.

    Yea, after seeing how easily Hooker was able to get him down, he still has nothing for Khabib.

    Correct. I believe he did.

    Sometimes an asswhipping can force you to learn tactics and he did each of those "khabib" tactics near the fence, not in the open. Nah man, just all a coincidence. Wrestling 101.

    how's khabibs nuts taste? He barely beat iaquinta, mj almost finished him, conor was coked up alchy when they fought, khabib is a product of nitpicking fights and ducking. Anyone that pressured him makes him look very beatable oh and he hasn't faced a fucking grappler. Khabib fans need to be first in line to test vaccines, until they get it right. Khabib hype very similar to ronda hype. Ppl talk about him like he's a god but all he's done is cling on for dear life against strikers.

    He is a truly great guy and willing to learn from his loses and those that gave them to him - has done with both Conor & Khabib especially

    Maybe part of the "preparation" is setting rules that disallow grappling or strikes?

    <WhoJeff>On the contrary, the first step to beating Khabib is to LISTEN to instruction. The 1st line of his reply is non-response to the integrity of my opening statement.

    <Kobe213>With these words, your camp lost to Khabib as soon as you opened your mouth.

    It's obvious Poirier has substandard fight IQ, because of that he'll never beat Khabib.

    The fact that he thinks pulling guard and going to the guillotine repeatedly is a good idea shows he isn't in fact learning. That shit won't work against the top 3. The only difference was that he was in better shape because his hip was healed.

    [omg1]You media guys are very rough. Give MMA Analyst & Poirier a chance.

    P.S. Thread count now over 50....

    What?? He got ragdolled at times by a horrible wrestler in Hooker. I was kinda shocked at that part of the fight.

    he didn’t have a problem with Dans grappling but he shouldn’t, he’s the better grappler. I’m not sure many at LW can dominate him like Khabib on the ground so maybe he just doesn’t need the excellent TDD but someone will expose that again you’d think

    I'm no media guy but it's apparent when a fighter lacks proper instincts. He pulls guard at the wrong times, he goes into his opponents guard at the wrong time... every time he had Hooker seriously he hurt he made the wrong choice. Instead of maintaining a proper gap and stalking down an injured opponent he closes too fast or doesn't attack. He requires his opponents to make huge mistakes to finish them.

    He did the same thing against Khabib, bad instincts. He actually hurt Khabib a few times but instead of realizing Khabib was 100% going to go for a takedown he attacked recklessly with no consideration for the takedown threat and then all momentum was immediately gone.

    Yes but he was giving Poirier problems because he was fighting at a pace he couldn't keep up, like Smith Texeira round 1.

    He fought a very calm and tactical 1st round, and if he continued to fight at that pace, he might have been fresher.

    It’s true Porier was being more aggressive in trying to close the distance more round 2 and that definitely played a role in Hooker making the adjustment, but Hooker tried to outfight Porier in the 2nd round instead of stay with his original fight plan. He started throwing more power punches to the head and body from in close instead of economically choosing his shots from the outside, which he was doing in the round 1. Also, at the end of the round he seemed to spend his entire gas tank on trying to finish Porier with that flurry.

    Porier didn’t really start turning it on until the 4th round, when Hooker looked like he was punching underwater.
