    Javier Mendez maintains Conor McGregor poses the biggest threat to Khabib Nurmagomedov inside the Octagon.

    Nurmagomedov meets Justin Gaethje on October 24 for the lightweight title in a much-anticipated match up that could see a door open for the Irishman’s return, and should that be the case, Nurmagomedov’s coach Mendez believes it’ll be the return of the most dangerous option for the champion.

    “Conor [is Khabib’s greatest threat], hands down. Hands down, Conor. For me,” Mendez said, speaking with ESPN. “Because look at the fight with Conor. He took him down the first round, how much damage did Conor sustain in that first round? How much control did Khabib have in the first round with Conor? … Where have you seen the opposite of that? … He’s had better control. Conor’s stand-up is great. … For me, Conor McGregor is the toughest challenge he’s ever had.

    “We’ll see what Justin brings to the table, but I still say Conor just based on what we went through.”


    • Mendez said McGregor would also beat Gaethje, predicting that the two would engage in stand-up exchanges but the Irishman's precision striking would secure the win.
    2 weeks ago: “I thought when I looked at [Gaethje], I was thinking probably the second biggest threat [to Nurmagomedov] because I still to this day believe Conor was,” Mendez said at a media day in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. “And the reason why I believe Conor was is because of that precision striking. But Justin could easily prove me wrong and prove to be the toughest test we’ve ever had. We’ve yet to see that. But I know we’ve already seen Conor and that’s why I would say Conor.

    “If you think about it, who’s won a round against Khabib? Conor. And whose given Khabib a tough time—The first round, he took Conor down, but how much damage did Khabib give him? No, Conor was very good there, so I have to give it to Conor for that. I haven’t seen Justin. Obviously, if I’ve seen Justin already and we fought him already and we are victorious like I’m hoping, then I can tell you 100 percent he was the toughest. Right now, I think in theory he’s number two.”



    Post-Gaethje: "Khabib purposely toyed with, wanted to punish Conor". Mad backwards team.

    Conor just doesn't have the cardio, the only chance he has is in the first minute or two in the first round, once he gets taken down his energy is sapped and he's done.

    Watching Connie fans scramble around for silver linings in that blowout of a fight is hilarious...

    Who is Khabibs biggest win?
    Say his name, pussy. Conor beat goats And legends while khabib retired off the success of beating Conor when he was on coke, not to mention, he retired with 4 top 5 wins (less than Chris Weidman...lol). You want to talk about rats, how about Khabibs homie who panic wrestled literally a millisecond after throwing a sucker punch on Conor after the khabib fight...

    Khabibs legacy is trash, his fans are trash, and he’s not a prize fighter because he sells 600k ppv’s.. nobody is even going to know he’s gone

    Javier said first or second most dangerous. Khabib has said it too, albeit for the first two rounds.

    I’ll take the fighter and the coaches word for it for arguments sake, and I’ll let Sherdog have a nervous breakdown and piss the bed about it until something big happens in their lives, rendering this awful news as slightly less significant.

    Conor McGregor is the greatest threat to young women in nightclubs and old men in bars. LMAO

    This dude needs to make up his mind. One day Conor is a dangerous threat, the next he's a can that Khabib carried.

    Lost a round to Coke Conor then declined his biggest pay day rematch to the guy his Own coach said was his toughest fight, though. Why cry when Conor will be champ again soon while Khabib is sucking on his moms sagging tits

    its just the truth


    Poirier melted on the ground vs Khabib
    Gaethje looked like a white belt

    Conor actually was able to defend himself on the ground for an entire round once. The second time he took a ton of damage but still made it through he round. and that was probably the end of the fight once the next takedown occurred.

    He probably was on coke and he was coming off a boxing match where he made 100 mil too. Losing a fight against the best mma wrestler isn’t embarrassing, having 29 wins with only 4 top 5 wins and 15 grey linkless scrubs on your record, is. You say we’re delusional, who deserves a title more than the Conor / Dustin winner then?
