    We all saw what Khabib did to a well rounded fighter like Iaquinta with that jab and striking setups:

    This is a new and improved Khabib and we have never seen McGregor deal with anyone with this combination of skills before, are we overlooking a potential mauling on the feet if McGregor starts to tire from defending takedowns?

    Khabib will have his Muhammad Ali jab in the locker if his wrestling fails don't worry.

    He'll use the 4" reach advantage that he has...

    And a counter left.

    Khabib 70" reach
    Iaquinta 70" reach
    Mcgregor 74" reach


    other Mcgregor opponents with a 70" reach

    If khabib gets Conor down for a round don't be shocked if he brings this out once Conor is gassed beyond life.

    Khabib will only use it if Conor is gassed, if not that jab will be slipped and Khabib will be waking up to Herb Dean asking him if he's OK.

    I'd say a cross counter.

    Or some sort of slip counter.

    Khabib Abdul Jabber will turn him into a panic wrestler.

    If the fight reaches a point where Khabib can safely jab conors off there’s absolutely nothing he can do

    You guys forget McGregor is also an elite (panic) wrestler. He would out(panic)wrestle Khabib

    Khabib's striking is grossly underrated, people act like he has Phil Brooks level striking..

    So... Conor should worry about Khabib's boxing now? Wow, the Khabib nuthuggers are starting to rival Conor's…..

    According to a lot of these discussions, Khabib is Ali in boxing, Rickson in BJJ and Karelin in wrestling.

    I was in a "discussion" the other day on here with someone saying GSP would get devastated by Khabib. Wow, just wow.

    One of the majors reasons Conor's overrated. He's never KO'ed anyone he didn't at least have a 3-4 inch reach advantage over. This is also why I think he has a chance to win this fight.
