    Rangy, distance-savvy Till was literally paralysed by the takedown threat. Didn't throw kicks, couldn't even pull the trigger with the hands. Then, the inevitable mistake and the mauling began in earnest.

    We've seen this time and time again: when a striker with a less than elite ground game fights a truly elite wrestler, he enters a whole new paradigm.

    If Khabib gets hands on him - DONE, Son.

    The fight reminded me of Conor vs Mendes, only that Mendes had cardio for 9 mins. Conor is going to be obliterated.

    It wasn't the threat of the take down that had Woodley that worried, it was the blitz style KO and he was right to worry.

    Woodley and Khabiv are very very different fighters.

    Completely different fight

    Khabib doesn’t have one punch KO power and his stand up is shit .

    Conor will knock him stiff with relative ease

    I agree there is a similarity

    Harder weight cut = less chin resilience

    The only similarity I see is that both Khabib and Till cut a shit ton of weight.

    Meaning Khabib's chin is going to be as compromised as Tills was.

    Conor is going to knock the fuck out of Khabib

    very possible, but Khabib is not likely to get a knockdown, he's gonna have to work for it

    Conor has a chance of winning since its a fight and all but lets be real here, he has "KOed stiff) exactly one guy and even then its questionable since he was still moving plus took a knee to the temple from a 250 plus pound man.

    This is why people find Conor so annoying, it's not him so much as the delusional parrots who dramatically over exaggerate his punching power.

    He TKOs guys, he doesn't "knock them stiff) like a Rumble Johnson, Mark Hunt or a Jeremy Stephens.

    If he had the power of those guys than yeah, Khabib would be in serious trouble but since he doesn't and won't want to follow Khabib to the ground to finish if he does hurt him (similar to Nate) then he has to fight a perfect fight for 25 minutes against Khabibs grappling pressure which is highly unlikely.

    He took 5 knockdowns to finish Eddie and he still wasn't knocked out stiff. Khabib has a way better chin than Eddie, enough with this Conor has this Rumble Johnson 1 punch KO power BS.

    Don't compare Conor to that bum Till who landed 0 strikes. Conor's resume is too good to be doing that. Also Tyron is a way more well rounded than Khabib who can knock you out with one punch, take you down, GnP you, submit you, etc. and has amazing TD defense, whereas Khabib only has good GnP and chain wrestling. Khabib's striking and footwork are horrible and he is easily hit. He is much more one-dimensional. I think Khabib should be the favourite for sure but Conor is the best striker in the division possibly in the UFC and has amazing footwork, feints, timing and accuracy to go with it. He is not Till.

    You're completely missing the point. Not saying that the fight will play out EXACTLY like the TWood/Till contest, right down to the KD.

    I'm simply saying that the paradigm will be very similar: Khabib's overwhelming superiority on the ground will either make McGregor trigger-shy ..or reckless, either of which limits Conor's advantage standing and actually facilitates the TD. I don't need to explain what happens then.

    Paralyzed by the takedown threat? Till pressured forward, starting slow and tried to find shots. He did the exact same shit against Wonderboy and Cerrone, who are strikers.

    Khabib ain't going to be backing up against some damn fence while Conor stands in front of him feinting lol.

    You're talking pure nonsense.

    1. Khabib is one of the least hit guys on the roster.

    2. Tyrone's ability as a striker is overrated (see how completely ineffective his striking was vs Rory) and he didn't even need to knock Till to win this. Till fucked up and handed it to him. But even if that didn't happen, Till was paralysed by the TD threat and that made him an easy fight for TWood.

    2 significant strikes

    You're blind if you don't see the difference between Till in this fight and his previous fights, even that snoozefest vs Wonderboy.

    Woodley is a much more dangerous fighter than Khabib is, overall. He's much quicker, stronger and has real power in his hands. That being said, Till was exposed big time, he doesn't compare to McGregor in any way. I still think that the late 1st round KO is the most probable outcome come october 6th.

    The takedown threat didn't make Conor gun shy against Mendes. He was throwing spinning back kicks and shit. What makes you think he's going to do any different against Khabib? Woodley is also 10x more dangerous on the feet than Khabib

    ...except when it doesn't - see both fights with Nate, who was allegedly '3 times' Conor's size

    Khabib's chin is rock solid, and because he is one of the lest hit guys on the roster, it is not shop worn like Eddie's or Aldo's.

    Conor is not frozen by the threat of a takedown
    He threw everything he wanted to against Mendes with no hesitation

    You will see the real best striker in the UFC do his thing

    Well it turns out that Till is a boring fighter that dont do much. He probably felt something in the cowboy fight that made him enter the state of flow.

    But other then that his fight last night and against Wonderboy was Till fighting in a very boring way.
