    Make sure to activate the sound.



    Barboza is probably the most dangerous kicker in the LW division.

    What will happen if Khabib is not fazed by Conor's left hand?

    It looked like it his shoulder... If that would've hit then chin then it would've been goodnight

    Edit: the calf hit his neck/chin. I learned that you can expect a KO from hitting with the calf instead of the heel itt.

    To be fair it didn't look like it landed 100% clean but he definitely got some of it. Khabib just has a big ass titanium head.

    Thanks. So he got hit by his calf? Lol. You think he would've ate the heel?

    Here's a slightly longer version avoiding the second one.

    Edson knocked Bobby Green down with a spinning back kick that landed in the same way. Khabib was standing and smiling at Edson. Yeah, he would have been fine.

    i actually think conor hits harder then that kick landed. That will be his toughest test, khabib doesnt have the best shoot

    Looks more like the neck, vs the older KO where he hit him clean on the chin. Still pretty beastly Khabib kept coming forward though. Still though, do we have any examples of him eating a chin shot?

    Khabib rarely gets hit, but he has shown a solid chin the few times he has.

    I dont think it hit his head and Khabib had his arm up to block and was already turning his head away before the shot landed so even though the sound was tasty it didn't connect like the shot in the second gif.

    Are you blind? His hand didn't block anything.

    But to be fair his heel didn't land straight on the temple. It landed slighly at the back of his head. Still a nasty shot.

    Khabib looked like a terminator in that fight. I thought Edson was going to give him tons of trouble with how athletic he is combined with his outstanding TDD and striking. But he literally just walked through him and gave him a horrific beat down.

    Conor has some scary power in that left, it changes fights when he touches guys. He can land it a lot more accurately than a kick too...

    I'll not take anything for granted, hopefully Khabib can eat it but you never know in this fucked up sport.

    On paper, Khabib should win 9 times out of 10.

    Okay so Bobby Green's chin isn't as good as Khabib's. Think about it this way. If you're swinging a baseball bat the point of power is at the top of the bat. It's the exact same thing with a kick. The point of impact is the heel not the calf.
