    Before the Iaquinta fight there was no chance Connor was going to risk fighting Khabib.

    So he kept it standing against Iaquinta to show weaknesses and lure Connor out... He was dangling the bait on purpose and it worked...

    Actually, I'm talking out of my arse... Just need something to occupy myself while the WMMA fight is on.

    P.S. Apologies for the clickbaity title as well.

    Bold move, if the first round is a stinker, all will be forgiven. I don't blame you either way, I'm in the kitchen preparing food for the next fight.

    But at least Khabib has a very strong ground game to fall back on.

    You can get a lot of info from what he did still

    Plus, Connor was probably watching at home and thinking I'd tool this guy...

    He did what he needed to do against Al. If he comes with teh same tactics he deserves to get smoked he 100% wont though.

    Agree. He's gonna try to get it on the ground asap... Wait till Connor gets behind the black octagon marker line... Single leg/clinch trip...

    By the way...

    Can someone explain this Wasteland forum? I'm assuming some mod didn't like the tone and moved it.

    Or am I missing something?
