    Fedor and Crocop was 28 and 30 respectively. Conor and Khabib will be 30 years old if the fight happens late this year/

    Fedor had 22 wins and one loss from illegal elbow, basically undefeated with 16 stoppage wins.
    Khabib has 26 wins with 16 stoppage wins.

    Crocop had 16 wins and 2 losses and 2 draws, with 15 stoppage wins.
    Conor has 21 wins and 3 losses, with 19 stoppage wins.


    Scary European southpaw knock-out killer vs Russian machine with combat sambo background

    Crocop's silent killer vibe, Fedor's cyborg like demeanor

    Conor's gifted trash-talking, Khabib's broken english but somehow charismatic presence

    Fedor/Crocop, was the biggest fight of the last decade, chosen so by many publications, and Fedor went undefeated that decade literally, and was honored as the fighter of the decade by Sports illustrated, MMAfighting, Fight! Magazine, Bleacher report, vale-tudo.ru, About.com...

    Will the history repeat itself? Two more years left until the end of this decade

    Can Khabib beat Conor in possibly the biggest fight of this decade, and also become the fighter of the decade going undefeated for this decade?

    Fedor and Cro Cop were much more skilled than Khabib and Conor.

    Don't insult CroCop by comparing him to Conor.


    CroCop would fucking destroy Conor IRL....and if they were similar weight.

    All you need to do is have eyes and you can see the wider ranger of skill sets that Fedor and Cro Cop had compared to Khabib and Conor.

    what leads you to conclude that cro-cop had a wider range of skills than conor?

    Wider skills I may give you that but that's not what you said, though the jury would be out on Cro Cop vs Conor that's for sure. I feel fighters of today are of a much higher level than those of 10 years ago, the sport has evolved a lot.

    I don’t think so at all. HW is a good example. Number 3 ranked guy admits he doesn’t know how to execute a take down.

    A lot of the top 10 guys are around 40 years old and from the older generation.

    Khabib may be one of the best wrestlers of all time but he’s extremely one dimensional. Conor is on the other end of the spectrum. We went from extremely well rounded fighters back to extremely specialized fighters.

    Not at all ..

    Fedor brought the fight to CC, and dominated most of the exchanges standing..

    I doubt Khabib tries to stand, or we are gonna see a KO..

    Well HW is not really a good example to be honest, clearly that's the shallowest division in the UFC.

    And Khabib is quite specialised but his wrestling ability is that high he can still get to the elite level, that's how good this guy is. And I think Conor's takedown defence and BJJ is underrated, it's just that he tries to strike at all costs and uses the grappling tools to avoid these situations. There were some really good GIFs someone posted of examples of Conor's grappling ability, i'll have to dig em up.
