    A boring fighter that takes people down and lies on top of them and is Top 2?

    I'll at least give Khabib some credit for finishing a fight from time to time. I'd consider myself a Khabib "hater" but not even I can hate on his performance vs Johnson. Sure he took a few good punches early but aside from that, he looked outstanding.

    Jon didn't go for as many big power punches and sub attempts at Khabib

    My only beef with Khabib is he doesn't always show up to his fights. When he does, he is scrumtrulescent. And he is physically strong. Is it wrong to be strong?! I don't think so.

    John Fitch is still fighting. So that makes John Fitch, this generation's John Fitch.

    Khabib is way more entertaining than Fitch ever was.

    Fitch couldn't beat his champion. Khabib will.

    I've literally never seen one fanbase so terrified of a fighter as Conor fans of Khabib.

    Don't get me wrong, I understand fully WHY. But it really is just something else to see these daily anti-Khabib threads. I never thought a fanbase would top Anderson fanbase's fear of Weidman prior to 162.
