    Straight from Teh GOATs mouth:

    “If I had to bet, if I had to put my house on it -- (laughs) the biggest one -- I would have to choose Khabib over Conor. Khabib never lost, he never lost, and Conor has lost before. He’s lost on the ground. He has a few losses and he lost on the ground. That’s where Khabib is good, that’s where Khabib is more competent.

    “However, Khabib is sometimes a slow starter and he gets punched a lot. Yes, he didn’t look good in the beginning of that (Michael Johnson) fight,” he explained. “And it’s hard sometimes to close distance; he had a problem to close the distance. But once he’s got you in the clinch he’s very good. So, I believe the chance, the house goes in Khabib’s favor, maybe.”

    Every fight starts standing though. Granted, it hasn't been a problem for Khabib in 26 fights.

    Winner faces Tony I hope.

    GSP is so clever. My special boy. GSP = GOAT. I think also Khabib will win by TKO 4/5 round by gnp.

    I agree with GSP in this one: the fight will be decided on who will get close/at range to do his gameplan and in that part i favor khabib because of his pressure.

    Conor fans are going to say it's wishful thinking by GSP. Yeah sure he wouldn't prefer to fight Conor; can you imagine how much he would make if he fought Conor after he beat Khabib. Way more than fighting Khabib after he beat Conor.

    It doesn't matter that you've never lost before and your opponent has when you haven't even fought the same people lol.

    Khabib never officially lost a round. His level of competition is not that great but he may very well be the real GOAT of MMA.

    But listening to Georges, he's not that confident as you made it sound like. He literally says 60-40 for Khabib.

    I think Khabib will win but I hope Conor knocks his ass out.

    Which is about right. Khabib looks HORRIBLE on the feet. During the Johnson fight it looked like he had never sparred before. He looked a little better against AI, but still ugly. If Conor was a cardio machine I’d pick Conor. But once that gas tanks goes and Khabib is on top of him it’s over.
