Khabib's striking makes 8 year old Kung Fu students look like world class strikers.

    Here he is demonstrating a double combo flying knee/hammer fist attack. What a beauty.

    And this is who you think has the skills to beat Conor McGregor?

    Haha, you guys are really reaching here.

    The guy is no different than Jon Fitch. He will likely get his title shot one day, lose, then fade into obscurity.

    But the threat of a takedown will keep his opponents guessing because if he gets you down, you are in deep trouble due to his great top control.

    That alone makes his striking that much more dangerous than his striking ability on its own.

    Lack of clarifying noun makes that clause very confusing.

    Khabib has KOed people and held his own against RDA on feet. The threat of takedown changes everything, Michael Johnson was reckless swinging punches, it didn't seem like he was worried to be taken down, not surprisingly Khabib mauled him

    This is MMA, grappling is involved.

    You should fight him since his striking sucks so much...

    To be completely honest that's the best damn flying knee hammer fist I've ever seen


    Seriously show me who can do it better than that ?

    A breathtaking display of ineptitude

    A wet paper bag could absorb this...

    Sweet GIF from his fight in 2012 against Kamol Shalorus. I can find old GIFs and claim they are still relevant in 2016 too.

    Here's Conor's supreme ground game against Joe Duffy

    There sure are a lot of Conor fanboys who seem terrified that he is going to have to fight Khabib.
