Just mentioned this in another thread, but here's my general take on the fight. I think Mcgregor comes out strong, demanding the center of the octagon. Khabib will challenge him to step back, but instead, Mcgregor will plant and throw without the hesitation shown by Khabib's previous opponents. If and most likely when Khabib uses this to secure the take down, Mcgregor won't try and scramble. He'll accept the take down, secure the upper body, and try and leg lock one of Khabib's legs for the stall from guard. He's just going to waste stamina and lose position if he tries to scramble, so it's better just to give up the round and wait for either the stand up from the ref or the bell. Overall I think Khabib takes this, but I don't expect it to be the savage ground and pound beating most of his fans think it will be. If it goes the way I think the fight does McG will proceed to say Khabib fought like a pussy and his fans will be satisfied with that.
