    Conor once said that 'a guy shorter than him will NEVER beat him' because he's trained for that type of fighter all his life. Conor for height and reach advantage. Khabib is just another Eddie and Jose, small fighter who is not big enough to get to McGregor and will get KOed.

    These type of fighters are bread and butter for Conor. Easy work.

    IIRC Eddie did run Conor into the fence briefly though.

    Those two fighters are a lot more decorated than Khabib though.

    Shoes vs no shoes, homie.

    Floyd gained 5 inches at weigh in with his lifts and Conor barefoot....Conor gained 5 inches too, but in the horizontal department compared to vertical department.

    Khabib is taller than McGregor for one, and for two Khabib has a ridiculous grappling prowess that NOBODY McGregor faced had.

    It depends what hiheels Conor wears. Also, Conor will have the reach. Eddie was listed as taller than Conor originally but was actually shorter.

    Yeah but he is not as small as Eddie or Aldo, which TS seems to imply

    Khabub is nothing like them. Totally different styles.

    Aldo only won his first 25 fights in his primary weight class.
    Khabib has won 26 in his.

    You obviously don't know what he meant. Shorter stand up fighters are prone to throwing a traditional overhand lead right, which is easily countered by a taller south paw who just slips, and lands the straight left counter.

    Khabib isn't a standard shorter stand up fighter. He throws weird shots from various ranges as a set up for take downs.

    By the time Conor wings that left straight hell be on his back quicker than a Spaniard on her honeymoon.

    Mendes took down Conor at will, and his takedowns are arguably not as good as Khabibs, so you are right.
