    Firstly, I just wanna say no in hell I'm hating on Conor. He's a great fighter, with some great fights in his career. Which, fight game fans and just people simply watching sports can enjoy. I can name a few for example, some first fights in the UFC (Conor-Max, Conor-Brandao, Conor-Siver ) some later figherts, and there are really great fights(Conor-Chad for example). And even May-Mac was enjoyable. Watching him hyping up his fight on the stage, together with all those fight-game sharks when millions are watching, is trully warming up your interest. But lets be real, Conor is not Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, GSP, Lesnar or even DC. He's a great contender, who got so lucky, that's weird beyond everything I saw in this game. (Watching UFC since Silva-Belfort).
    But, here's somenone, who can stop this show, no matter how crueal it can sound. All those experts talking, Conor is expert in mind-games warfare, Conor is in his head...I think it's overall disrespectull to the whole Fighters community. Mostly roll with it, but still I think most people who watch mma more than for 3 yeras can feel that something is not right. And Khabib has real intentions, not only win, but make something more. Khabib is on a mission here.

    Yeah me too

    Don't mind Conor, I just think it'll be better for the sport if Khabib wins

    Plus if Conor wins, that could be his last fight ever. He would have zero reason to fight again. If he loses, then it might 'light the fire' under him once more.

    Did you just say Conor is not "Anderson, Jones, GSP, LESNAR, DC" ?

    Did that really happen? You put Lesnar in with 4 of the GOATs and say Conor got lucky but not Lesnar???

    What's going to happens is:

    1. Khabib and Conor will have their first faceoff
    2. People will realize Khabib is bigger
    3. A bunch of money will go on Khabib
    4. The excitement will reach a fever pitch.
    5. Khabib pulls out
    6. Holloway will try to step in but they don't want another fiasco
    7. Conor vs. Tony Ferguson or Nate Diaz

    Not me. I am rooting for Conor for the very first time, so hoping for a KO and then I can go down to our local Irish pub for Kilkenny.

    Not me for sure reason I don't like Khabib. Tony Ferguson is the real champ to me. I want Conor to win, so I can see Tony vs Conor

    I'm rooting for him too. The only people who should be rooting for McGregor are drunk Irish and asshole Americans.

    If that happens they will also strip Khabib. Or make another interim.

    Because the champ failed to defend within 6 months...

    if you think cutting from 185-190 down to 155 (confirmed by gsp) so that you can fight much smaller men and hold them against the cage is inspiring that’s cool I guess

    He also had very bad weigh cuts, was rushed to the hospital. So I think it's fair enough.
