    I'm not a huge fan of either fighter, just an MMA fan in general. Just looking at all the posts of how Khabib is going to die just due to gaping holes in his striking is hilarious.

    Conor fans are trying to grab onto anything to make themselves feel better about the fact that this fight is a dead 50/50 fight.
    Anything could happen in this fight, but it's gonna likely be hugely one sided, whether it's Conor KO'ing Khabib, or Khabib mauling him for several rounds.

    They can't accept that this fight is a pick'em, and that Conor has a huge chance of being destroyed as well.

    Anyone who acts like it's one over the other is biased as hell.

    Idk who's going to win, but whoever wins is going to do it dominantly

    And whoever loses will "suck" and be considered "never actually good" by Sherdog

    I think Conor's power is very overrated, and Khabib has never even been rocked before despite being hit with a few good shots.

    He may not even have the mythical "puncher's chance", we shall see. I favour Khabib 90-10 at the moment.

    Even you are declaring the fight is a 50/50 that either Conor KO's him in a hugely one sided fight, or Khabib mauls him for several rounds in a hugely one sided fight. So why then, is it hilarious that Conor may take advantage of the gaping holes in Khabib's standup?

    I don't get it.

    I am a Conor fan and I cannot deny that Khabib has a clear way to win.

    But there are certainly a few aspects that Conor can exploit that he usually does very successfully:

    1. Khabib is unreliable at showing up/making weight
    2. His striking is very primitive but is offset by the takedown threat
    3. Nobody has tested him mentally. And Khabib has a few things he really depends on - his religion, family (especially his father) and having an undefeated aura. There are some parallels that can be made with Aldo.

    no khabib hate here, just think hes overrated AF and gunna get ran through ... good grappler, pathetic standup , nothing special. The way he keeps that chin in the air is comical , looks like he took boxing lessons from ronda/edmond

    As a McGregor fan i have very little concern about khabib, just another hyped up bum gunna get KO'd. Looking forward to the excuses though...

    Because Conor fans are acting like it's a sure thing that Conor KO's him and there's no other possible outcome.

    I’m 100% pulling for Khabib in this one but I’m favoring Conor. Anyone that doesn’t see those “gaping holes” in Khabibs striking as a serious concern don’t know what they’re watching. I’m not saying we’re going to see Aldo 2.0 but I’d be surprised if Conor’s mouth isn’t watering at what he’s seen from Khabibs forward pressure.

    And Khabib fans are doing what exactly?

    Khabib is the overwhelming favorite here on shitdog.

    I’m not sure that this thread was needed.

    Conor fans are scared shitless.

    Not just because Khabib is a stylistic nightmare for Conor, but because the way he's going to dominate him is going to make Conor look terrible.

    No quick subs or TKO's.

    5 rounds of catastrophic mauling. They're going to have to scrape Conor off the canvas after this. The entire world will be watching and judging.

    Khabib represents the end of the Conor era.

    Pussy out, pussy out they will when they flee the forum and renounce his name.

    And despite how incorrect we know that to be, we'll all enjoy the healthy amount of crow that will be served around here.

    I still don't really follow as to why that is hilarious though. If it is as likely an outcome, to you, as Conor getting smashed on the ground, their predicting that outcome is perfectly reasonable(imo).

    I don't see it as 50/50, to be honest. I lean more 60/40 toward Khabib putting the hurt on him for about 2.5-3 rounds until Conor gives up his neck...but Khabib does leave that chin nice and high in the air, and Conor does have the death-touch coupled with fantastic timing + accuracy + distance management.

    Should be a good watch, regardless.

    I have it 60/40 in conor's favor, but khabib is one of my favorites, so I'm rooting for him.

    If you aren't one of the people who are super invested in him as a fan or hater Conor fights are awesome for that

    There are always a large amount of people who look dumb either way
