    Khabib's own manager Ali Abdelaziz telling it like it is on MMA Junkie Radio this week.

    He also predicted Conor's next fight wouldn't be Khabib, but against T-Wood.

    (Can't post link from phone for some reason but anyone who's not a moron can find it with ease. It's around 45-50 minutes into the episode.)

    Also manages
    Werdum (talks about Cain, fighting JDS and calling JDS gay, Black Beast)
    Cody No-Love (talks about Cruz, the cancer kid Cody will give belt to)
    Shields (talks about how Sheilds has wins over T-Wood & Maia)
    Rashad (talks about how he's trying to sign a fight with Anderson)
    RDA (says even he doesn't know why RDA left Kings)

    Also talks about dealing with Joe Silva.

    I have to disagree, that's some serious black belt striking shown above.

    But in grappling Khabib is a coral and Conor hasn't even heard about Hoyce yet, so there's that.

    Of course he said that too, but that part of the equation goes without saying.

    Might as well also say the sky is blue, water is wet and Nate Diaz is stoned.

    Mark my words.

    Khabib will break the quickest mentally.

    Conor's already deep in his head.

    This is the bad as approach if you ask me. Acknowledging you're opponents strengths and at the same time be confident in you're own. All of Eddies team talked rubbish leading up to the Conor fight trying to sell the fight by downplaying McGregors strengths witch was a turn off for me. I know its Ali talking, but it gets me more excited for a potential match up.

    Isn't this from Khabib's UFC debut ? If I remember correctly you could actually hear the audience laughing at Khabib's striking during this fight.

    Reminds me of CM Punk's technique

    Khabib's style is catching on

    No, this is how you sell a fight IMO.
    Ali trying to hype Khabibs stand up would be the same as him calling fans stupid and uneducated about the sport.

    If Khabib doesn't go right away to the takedowns, then I don't know.

    But I really think he will. He can't be dumb enough, after watching Conor boxing fuck a bunch of dudes, to try the stand with him.

    We need to see what Conor can do against a super legit, full camp (so no excuses from anyone), grappler that's going to stick to his strength.

    He's trying to bait McGregor into taking the fight with his fighter, that's all that was.

    Ali knows what he's doing. A statement like that puts more pressure on Conor to take the fight instead of someone like Fergy or Aldo.

    He's trying to convince conor he has a chance to win so that he won't hide from Khabib
