mcgregor would already be 6 feet under by then
In the first 30 seconds? It's like the pre Aldo fight threads repeating themselves
@Toco is Brazilian just so you know.
this is how easy he will get the takedown
People act as if Conor hits like Anthony Johnson or something. Yes he could catch Khabib but odds are that Khabib can take a few. Conors gas tank can't survive more than two rounds of a true grind.
Khabib himself said he would not pretent to be a boxer with Conor like he did with Al. He said he is going to chain wrestle, grind him and talk to him while he is stealing his soul.
Khabib has said he won't stand with Conor. He has nothing to prove to himself. He's just gonna put on the normal Khabib special.
It's more likely that he'll be more like he was early on against Al and MJ. throw very little, gauge distance, wait for an opening, pressure forward, ect ect.
That fight was four years ago...
Khabib can in fact KO Conor
That sloppy stuff is just to setup takedowns
People also like to pretend Conor will just fall over as soon as Khabib touches him. Conor has displayed some pretty clever, non-standard anti-wrestler strategies.
I don't think this fight is quite as one sided as a lot are making it out to be.
Khabib only fights like that when he realizes his opponent doesn't have the power to knock him out
Khabib doesn't have to stand at all he can take down Conor AT WILL.
After the first round of Khabib on top torturing him he will be done and his punches will come in slow motion then it will be complete hell for him because Khabib will just continue to punish him until Conor's entire soul drains out of his body.
Sherfact #243: If you don't like a fighter then they never get better no matter how much time passes.
Conor is used to fighting midgets.
Dude got dominated and taken down easily by 5"5 mini Mendes.
This will be Conor's second LW fight. Khabib is a big LW who is much stronger, bigger and has better wrestling than Mendes.
Conor will be suffocating and begging Dana for help while his face is smooshed against the cage and Khabib is whispering into his ear.
That makes all the sense in the world now. Fedor avatar threw me off but the Conor hatred was so strong. Shit had me f'd up.
He’s fighting a panic wrestler who got slapped by Nate diaz. It’s basically a guarantee win for Khabib
True. I think Khabib is also a little more relentless and better at wrestling than most. They are also fighting at lw and Khabib is a large and strong lw. It is one thing to stifle Mendes and the like, I think it is entirely different with Khabib. We will see.
I am looking at the gas tank as the possible decider. If it goes more than 2 rounds it is heavy in favor of Khabib. Any grinding wrestling from Khabib and the gas will start to go.
Khabib's wrestling is about as similar to Chads as Nick Diaz's boxing is to Rumble's boxing. Khabib may walk thru him but no comparisons can be drawn between their two styles.
This fight will be like Cain vs JDS 2 and 3. Conors only chance is what happened in 1.
