    Nobody conor mcgregor have fought in ufc (or maybe his whole mma run) have had worse stand up then Khabib.

    Yes i know. Khabib is a beast from clinch to ground. That makes him so scary that strikers turn runners.

    But still something to think about.

    Okay, and Conor is probably one of the worst grapplers Khabib has faced?

    They're polar opposite, and that's what makes the fight so good.

    None of this matters... Khabib is a fuckin beast!

    Just listen to how fighters from all weight classes talk about him behind the scenes.

    And also the biggest, strongest, and by far the best wrestler/grappler he has ever faced.

    This actually works to Khabib's advantage because he'll be one of the first fighters not stupid enough to engage with Conor on the feet where all of Conor's other UFC opponents have failed (except Diaz) and has strong enough wrestling and grappling to dictate the pace of the fight.

    So basically a stylistic nightmare for Conor.

    Even a fighter as great as Ferg is a better matchup for Conor because he'd actually engage on the feet and give Conor a chance to KO him while having inferior grappling/wrestling/td's to Khabib.

    In other words, Conor and his fans are pretty screwed, though I commend him for his bravery in taking this terrible stylistic matchup.

    It's pretty funny actually that Conor isn't even the best striker Khabib has/will fight lol.

    Khabib outstruck Iaquinta. Who basically beat Masvidal on the feet. Khabibs striking is underrated.

    He outstruck iaquinta because of his wrestling threat. But yes khabib is good at unloading shots on a guy afraid of being taken down
     
  14. This fight is basically Art Jimmerson vs. Royce Gracie.

    So what. He’s not competing in kickboxing. The only time he strikes, he has the threat of the takedown, so it’s relevant in the fight w McGregor lol

    You are technically right, but his opponents fear the td and often don’t have their best stand up posture. That makes their striking less efficient and therefore makes Khabib land more than he should.

    No. Conor has better jits than Khabib's last 4 opponents.

    this!....also connor begins explosively but gasses while khabib is a slow starter with great cardio....Im freakin stoked for this matchup. That being said in the classic striker vs grappler matchup history says the grappler has greater odds of winning
