    That is the difference between past their prime fighters like Cowboy and a prime Khabib.

    Khabib would have easily dragged down an off balanced Conor whiffing on a big left. Cowboy stood in the clinch and took 4 shots to his face.

    You do understand that he might have a different game plan against a different opponent, right?

    OP is right

    Khabib would have dumped him on his head and we’d be watching round 4 right now with Conor begging for mercy


    Khabib Bless

    I’m pointing out the difference in skill. Conor gets fucked if he whiffs like that against Khabib.

    maybe..

    ..but with khabib being an actual top fighter in the division, and not a handpicked, mismatched opponent who's already been tkoed twice in the last six months, conor probably wouldn't have opened with a telegraphed left hand, so it's a bit of a moot point.
