Conor and it’s not close.
Conor and its not close.
Conor is a better grappler than Khabib is a striker.
Equally one dimensional
Khabib outstruck Iaquinta and Barboza when he wasn't mauling them.
Conor isn't on the ground much, but from what we've seen, it's been pretty basic and usually on the losing side.
A square is more rounded than a triangle. Does it really matter. Well rounded is not the question of these two fighters. The question is which fighter is less dimensional.
The casual fans of MMA favor the striking aspect of the sport over the grappling aspect. Even the majority of hardcore fans favor submission grappling over top control GnP style grappling.
Given this, most would say McGregor is "better" rounded than Khabib.
That's why conor has been submitted numerous times whereas Khabib has some of the best striking defense stats in the entire UFC. khabib outstruck Al, Barboza, and RDA on the feet. Conor 's biggest achievement on the ground is...what? tearing his knee while passing 20 year old max holloway's guard?
Conor by a small margin imo. Haven't seen much of his ground game but what we've aeen has been solid overall. Mostly defensive, nothing dangerous, but still good.
Khabib's striking is getting better and he has been adding to his bag of tricks slowly but he is still more specialized imo. He is on his way to becoming more well rounded tho.
Conor is good standing. Bad on the ground.
Khabib is bad standing. Good on the ground.
Sweeping black belt Nate Diaz.
Sweeping Mendes as well.
Khabib's striking sucks bruh. His only advantage standing is the threat of the takedown.
Khabib is an amateur on the feet. Conor sweeps black belts on the ground.
I guess Conor, but being "well rounded" doesn't mean that you're better. Joe Lauzon is pretty well rounded but he always gets his ass kicked lol.
It's more about being able to implement your game plan. Khabib killing everyone on the ground and never losing means he's better able to implement his plan than Conor getting finished three times all in the same way.
Conor was submitted multiple times. Khabib has barely been hit.
About even. Khabib has underrated standup. He has knocked people out on the feet. In the UFC too.
Conor is more well rounded. Khabib is really good at forcing his game plan though.
mcgregor swept nathan diaz who is a bjj gracie legend and three times bigger than mcgoat
khabib coulnd't even finish a one legged real estate agent fighting on one day's notice
i think that answers your question
Conors only advantage is his left hand.
Conor is striking.................Khabib has never been knocked out.
Khabib is ground game......Conor has been submitted 3 times.
Conors got great striking and good grappling. Khabib has great grappling. So conor. Still think Khabib beats him though
