    I will acknowledge that he is truly one of the greatest fighters in history (no matter what happens after in other fights), and not an overrated LW fighter (which I currently think he is).

    I just want this to be on record, because its easy after the fight to say "Oooooh but I always said McGregor was amazing", or continue to shit on McGregor as a hater of some kind.

    I dont like McGregor much (esp since he defeated Aldo), but I would give him full respect if he defeats Khabib. I am not one of those "fans" who loves either fighter unconditionally like a dog. I am a fight fan and respect martial art ability only. And honor.

    So beating Khabib makes you the greatest fighter in history?

    I don't like McGregor guys, but if he wins a fight he's the GOAT despite losing to cans and gatekeepers and never defending a title.

    Promise I don't like him and this makes my claim more credible.

    this
    and this
    don't jibe.

    i have a hard time understanding how anyone could currently consider him something along the lines of a mediocre fighter (which you seem to). and i have no love for him.

    By the way I never said the GOAT. I said a "great fighter".
    I always thought McGregor is a LW that used his KO power against FWs, unfairly so, and was thus overrated.
    I felt that he fought cans, most of the time. Or styles that favoured him.
    I think Khabib is an undeniable high level threat, one of my favorite fighters, and beating him would place him among the greats. I dont even care if he does KO him and its a fluke and that Khabib doesnt have time to wrestle him. Its such a minuscule chance for me, in the millions, that watching it happen would be incredible.

    "I just want this to be on record"

    Lol who cares what you think.

    It's not like anyone here will remember you or the opinion you had on Conor if he wins.

    Yea I still think Eddie is a tougher fight on paper. Decent chin, great cardio, good wrestling, not afraid to take shots to give some, high level experience in some wars. Alverez got dropped so quick that post fight he said he didnt even know what he got hit with, it was just fast and hard.

    Khabib had 5 rounds vs a plodding flat footed panicked Al. The Al who got subbed by chesia and clarke. Khabib couldnt hurt or put Al in danger for 5 rounds. 2 rounds in Al was shrugging off most of the TDs. Al landed some decent counters on khabib for how terrified he looked of the TD. 5 jabs in a row isnt good boxing, and takinh 5 jabs in a row with no attempt to use footwork, head movement, or counter is someone so scared of the grappling they'd rather eat em.

    Win or lose, Conor wont fight scared. He has delusional confidence. Especially vs a guy who has shown lacking standup, and the one time Khabib took a shot he was backing straight up, not pressing through or shooting for a TD.

    I don't really like Khabib and think he's overrated but if he miraculously beats Conor he is the greatest fighter in human history and up there with Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Hulk Hogan for greatest human ever.

    One dimensional rousey, always was.

    Only reason, he even had that fake belt to begin with was he beat a realtor, a couple of dudes who couldn’t wrestle and a green RDA.

    Oh and I mean, Gleison freaking Tibau.

    Yet you're the only quoting me everytime saying "No one likes you" when literally no one has ever said that to me ever.

    Maybe you should start saying "I don't like you" because you're the only one who is so obsessed about being liked.

    Or just go back to cupping Conor's balls, i'm sure no one will mind.

    Conor is to MMA kind of what Guns n Roses is to rock n roll.

    Made a big mark on the scene immediately and rose quickly to the top.
    (Conor @145/Appetite for Destruction)

    Followed up with a spectacular 2nd effort at the top of the game
    (LW title / Use Your Illusion)

    Then took a break and did some weird shit that purists do not accept
    (Floyd/Spaghetti Incident)

    Then disappeared for a while...

    And as such it is hard to place them amongst "the all time greats" since they didn't have the sustained success and long run at the top.

    But their early work is spectacular none the less and won't be easily forgotten.

    If he's the greatest fighter ever than what does that make GSP? Super Greatest Fighter ever?

    It’s not really that far fetched he wins tbh.
