I believe the chance of this is very slim but.... 99% of sherdog might be wrong about Conor's grappling skills and most professional fighters as well. Lots of assumptions, but let's assume: 1. Two first loses doesn't tell anything about Conor's grappling skills. Explanation: While this is not to much of an assumption (most fighters evolve at different rates). Lets assume that Conor evolved drastically due "natural talent", athleticism and huge efforts. 2. The tore ACL really affected his TDD against Mendes. 3. He completely gave up against Diaz and the submission loss doesn't give us any information about his real grappling skills. . So what if (just what if) we were all wrong and Conor grappling skills and he's are much better than what we thought. If he has the ability to defend himself on the ground without much damage, to be able to stand back up, to defend a couple of TD's then I can see Conor TKO/KO at later rounds. Again this is coming from a Khabib fan. Again lot of assumptions but I'm giving you that. Everything is possible after all.
