If Khabib is a can crusher, why was he opened as the favorite over McGregor and Ferguson?

    Maybe McGregor is just a can

    Seriously, those McGregor fans are just annoying kids who bullshit all the time. Every serious MMA fan knows Khabib is much more established at LW. Got a life, kids.

    Because he is a perceived bad style match-up. I always think the media get it wrong with Mcgregor though. Wrestlers are not his kryptonite good strikers are. He is elite at striking so all he has to do is survive on the ground and he knows he will spark out a wrestler eventualy on the feet. Against another good striker he has more problems as you know he is not going to shoot for a takedown..

    Obviously because the people effecting betting lines are also can crushers and paid UFC shills.

    Why do you even listen to those opinions? It's a bunch of idiots just saying shit.

    Odds reflect the balance of bets, not expert analysis.

    Because bookies don't perceive him as the can crusher that he is. Only us Shergeniuses do.

    You sound pretty rustled my friend. There's more to life than hating on Conor.

    Conor has struggled with wrestlers n Khabib is a wrestler.
    The odds should be very close imo

    Anybody is a can compared to him, that's why.
     
  12. Khabib hasn't fought "cans" he just has yet to test his skills against the elite through no fault of his own since Tony Ferguson got an injury and Conor McGregor had legal issues and Max tried cutting too much too soon.

    That's how desperate his fans are they are betting on a fight this early. Conor's fans are buying diddy bread.

    Giving 2 seconds of your time to people who think Rafael Dos Anjos, Edson Barboza and Al Iaquinta are cans is 2 seconds too many.

    Because Conor is a ring rusty, semi retired «has been», And Tony is a TUF can.
