I've gone back through Khabib's fights and have noted how long it takes for him to put his opponent down (and keep him there). These are the times: Al - 60 seconds (controlled all round) Edson - 102 seconds (down all round) Johnson - 125 seconds (down all round) Horcher - 160 seconds (slammed) RDA - 85 seconds. RDA up after 60 seconds, taken down again 23 seconds later. Repeat. Healy - terrible standup by Khabib. Took Healy down a couple times in the second round. Trujillo - Trujillo took Khabib down in 80 seconds. Khabib controlled almost right away (rest of round). Tavares - 100 seconds (knocked down). Tibau - no takedowns Shalorus - 182 seconds (knocked down then controlled) What this shows me is that AKA Khabib has become more concentrated, more driven, and more single-minded. More than ever he is playing to his strengths. Unless he's knocked out cold, we will see him take McGregor down in the first round. It's basically a certainty.
