    Mcgregor fans seem to think he will have a magical replay of the Aldo fight against Khabib but Khabib could very well have a iron jaw. Mcgregor seems to have it all figured out when he's fighting midgets.

    How screwed would Khabib be if he doesn't have one?

    Ragdoll without getting tagged once? Is Khabib Mayweather now?

    From what I've seen his chin looks solid. Will be interesting to see how the fight plays out.

    You're forgetting Khabib has to close that distance first.

    As skilled as he is I think McGregor's power is overrated. He is strong no doubt, but he doesn't have this "touch of death" like so many think. His accuracy is unmatched but he doesn't KO people with one shot - except Aldo, who ran straight into his left hand. He usually drops guys and finished them with hammer fists. I mean he dropped Nate 3-4x and couldn't finish him and it took till (I think) his 4th knock down to finish Eddie. I think khabib's chin may be too strong for Conor to knock his head clean off. Khabib has a big ol' noggin

    McGregor throws punch like that, Khabib will duck and take him to ground.

    Conor has no answers to this fight other than a miracle punch.

    Mendes got him down repeatedly after getting hit. (Landed some good shots standing on Conor too.)

    If Khabib gets control of McGregor early, it's going to be a rough night. Mendes wasn't really working to maintain control on the ground. Positional control is Khabib's bread and butter.

    And then he got finished in the second round. Your point? Khabib couldn't even ragdoll a short notice replacement in 5 rounds.

    Not to mention Conor hit Mayweather reportedly 111 times.

    McGregor doesn't have this astonishing power, what he has is excellent timing and accuracy, it's not gonna be like if he touches Khabib once before the takedown that he'll die.

    Khabib dominated that entire fight without needing takedowns.... When has conor fought on short notice? Diaz? How'd that fight go?

    Very screwed...very very screwed. That spinning kick stuff is pretty predictable at this point.

    Conor has to try his main weapon first though...dem mind games. It's his greatest asset, and we've seen what happens when that doesn't work.

    Yes but did he or did he not get tagged? We're talking about how screwed Khabib would be if he has a weak chin, remember? If Khabib has Diaz chin then obviously Conor is screwed, nobody is arguing that, question is what if he doesn't? What if he can't take Conor's left? Where's the evidence that he can avoid getting tagged?
