Why is Khabib trolling Conor for fighting at multiple weights?

    How many wins does Khabib outside of LW?
    How would Khabib do against even Nate at 170lbs? We'll never know because he's happy to stay in the secure confines of LW.

    Every camp we hear about how he handles heavyweights in training but the facts are his last 2 wins are over opponents who moved up from FW. So for him to have the audacity to question Conor's record at 170 is an astonishing own-goal.

    Whatever you think about Conor, he could have done 'a Khabib' and stayed dominant at FW, but with the 4 best challengers in Jose, Max, Dustin and Chad already put to the sword he wanted a greater challenge. If anyone can talk about "legacy" it's Conor.

    That's the eternal question. Is it more impressive to dominate a division by beating up every contender, or to take belts in two divisions without defending it or by defending it only once or twice ?

    But in the Conor/Khabib case, the question has been answered by a fight.

    Conor fights LW's at WW, not WW's at WW.

    Nate isn't good enough to fight Khabib.

    And why bring up Max when he was losing to Dennis Bermudez when Conor beat him? He wasn't a ranked win

    Khabib fears the idea of facing a healthy Conor and being destroyed by him because of what it will do to his legacy

    Khabib wants Conor to earn a shot at 155 by fighting a legit contender, not by fighting over the hill 155'rs at 170

    Conor will always be unhealthy when he loses fights. Khabib smashes him again, same as last time.

    Khabib is scared of 170, doubt he would even sign a fight vs 170lbs Cerrone.

    Healthy fully motivated, committed and regimented training camp Conrat went life and death with Nate in their rematch. Conrat did what his people do to feel brave against a life altering threat, booze up, take drugs and puff their chest out.

    Also let's not forget Conrat is actually unbeaten, tapping out doesn't really count according to the Irish degenerate.

    Hahaha, do you really think Khabib wouldn't jump at the chance to have the Tony fight at 170 so he can avoid having to do the most grueling part of his job?

    Beating Max coming off a loss ranked 14th, Chad coming in on short notice and winning 90% of the fight (as everyone loves to falsely claim in regards to losing to Nate in the first fight), 6th ranked Dustin who wasn't considered a top contender and a highly emotional reckless Aldo (credit to Conor for that) hardly qualifies as "the 4 best contenders put to the sword".

    Had he actually given Aldo the rematch he promised (which he couldn't at risk of making the thing that still defines his legacy the anomaly it more than likely was) and fought at least 1 more top contender after that (Frankie) I would be fine with it.

    Leaving a division when you are actually the one with the pressure on you and the one with something to lose to immediately get another fight where the benefits far outweigh the risk is not " looking for a greater challenge" especially since I don't think anyone would consider either Nate or Eddie a "greater challenge" then a rematch with Aldo.

    Conor loves taking fights where he is the one with nothing to lose and everything to gain which is why he has refused to defend a belt. Anyone can win a fight on any given night but to be a champion you have to prove you can win when you're the one putting everything on the line.

    However, we can talk when and if he fights an actual WW cause that would be a different story and I'll give credit where it's due.

    Cowboy is a legit contender.. He's arguably Tony and Justin's best wins

    It is disappointing Khabib is so against moving to 170, at least Jones has the 60 lbs excuse.

    He beat him already but thinks every day about him.
    I guess he'd have rather settled it in a hot tub, good old fashionned way

    Khabib never will got to WW. He wouldn't live with the guys like Woodley, Usman and even Covington. He gets pushed too hard by their pace or just flattened by their wrestling. He's happy to stay in a div thread bare of top quality wrestlers.

    Khabib is a natural 170 pounder anyway.

    When two fighters have fought there’s no reason for the emotional, biased rants of their fans.

    It’s easy to gas when you’re punching a big block of iron over and over again (nates head).

    All that matters is Conor has a big L on his record from Khabib and that won't change.

    Khabib doesn't need to keep moving up and down because he doesn't keep losing

    Cerrone was on an impressive 3 fight win streak before Tony. Tony beat him badly but didn't ko him. Gathje then legit ko'd him. Conor faced him whilst he was on a 2 loss skid in a weightclass where punching power makes a bigger difference, then bumrushed him and ko'd him. Sorry but Conor did not face a legit contender you fool. Think about what you're saying next time
