Should I remind you of what happened to Anderson when he fought an elite/big wrestler?

    Against Chael 1
    Yeah I know he submitted him like 10 seconds before the end of the fight but what happened during 98% of the fight?

    Conor fans keep telling me that Conor TDD is not mainly about traditional wrestling TDD (sprawling) but more about "excellent footwork".. well Anderson as well, he KO/TKO people due to his "excellent footwork" and that was enough for most of them to not take him down.
    So again what happened to him when he finally encountered a legit, big and strong wrestler? Yes, exactly. Or.. are you going to tell me that Conor footwork is better than Andersons?

    Anderson Silva would kill Conor.

    He fought in a higher weight class on very short notice, and he fought against arguably the best LHW ever (only clean athletes count).

    Conor is fighting a guy in his own weight class, and I'm not convinced Khabib is anywhere near as good as Cormier.

    Different styles of wrestling though.

    Chael is traditional western wrestling, with a very quick, power through double leg.

    Khabib is more of an up against the fence grappler, with trips and throws.

    His footwork and boxing are better than andersons , chael had one of the best power doubles ever in mma khabib is more clinch based takedowns and of course he met that roid fueled big wrestler a 2nd time and stopped him yet again but this time with ease

    He won? Against Lord Chael and a big bag of illegal testosterone too.

    Anderson was out of his prime, went through surgery, under weight and on 2 day notice.

    Not talking about that one... that was a total disadvantage (size and short notice). But of course a DC middleweight version would beat Anderson.

    He held Anderson down inflicted no serious damage while the Spider had a hurt rib. Then submitted him like he told Nog in the documentary he'd would. I was there live for the rematch. Went a lil different when Silva was healthy.

    You guys need to research your points a little more, lol

    Some of the posts here trying to re-frame history to make a case for a prediction of the outcome of a future fight are just flat out dumb.
