    I think they would both last 13.65 minutes and tree fiddy milliseconds.

    Has Khabib ever finished anybody around 13 seconds in any competition?

    Serious question.

    Not a person, but a tiramisu possibly.

    Khabib breaks people, Conor snipes people.

    Khabib is great, but if I am not mistaken, he has never finished a top ten guy...
    Conor finished them all.

    Neither one would do particularly well

    I'd say Conor would last longer in grappling if Khabib can't use GnP. In striking, Khabib lasts as long as he can run away, because he's not doing shit on the feet.

    Conor would probably last longer since it's easier to stall in a grappling match.

    Let's look at another MMA fighter in a grappling match. Here we see Brendan Schaub "shutting down" Cyborg's game.

    I think Khabib survives longer in a submission grappling match.

    in a kickoxing match he would get KO'd in under 1 minute but I think it would take Conor a little bit longer to submit him

    For the short amount of time it was on the feet Khabib outstruck Barboza, one of the best lightweight strikers. Even though he's a wrestler, the irony is that he's actually a natural born striker too.

    In a kickboxing fight I'd give Khabib 4 minutes tops.

    In a submission grappling match (with no GnP) I think Khabib lasts maybe 2 rounds.

    Lol that's a fucking stretch. Only thing other than grappling he's naturally born into is additional screening at airports.

    That's actually funny, imo he is a natural striker, he doesn't punch like a boxer, but he has perfect timing.

    Easy to “outstrike” a kicker who has to watch out for TDs every other second. Put them in a kickboxing match and see what happens.

    Never actually payed attention to his timing because he's usually just fking mangling ppl on the ground. But his technique doesn't inspire confidence but tbf striking isnt really his concern when his wrestling so good
