    Khabib doesn't like being thought of as a one trick pony. Made noticeable in the Al Laquinta fight when he totally disregarded what his corner was shouting and instead decided to stand and awkwardly bang. If he does this against McGregor he is done. He is best off being classic, predictable, boring Khabib and chomping on Conors ankle like a pittbull and lot letting go, then lay and pray with a few elbows now and then until Conor gasses out. But its a huge fight and he is in the spotlight, so some showboating could go on and it could result in his demise.

    Maybe he will stand and bang.
    Maybe Conor will drop to his back Royce Gracie style and invite Khabib down to grapple.

    Or... maybe not.

    Yea but Khabib is kinda dumb as in the Al laquinta fight he did stand and bang and paid for it.

    The fight starts standing in all 5 rounds. He will have zero choice but to engage in the standup as he works for the TD's.

    I think he is in worse shape if he does NOT set up his TD by mixing in some striking. It will make Conor's job of stopping the TD attempts if Kabib is 100% predictable from his TD attempts without changing it up just enough to keep Conor guessing.

    In fairness Khabib normally wins the fight in rounds 1 and 2.
    He stood up with Barbosa and Iaquinta because he had beaten the living fuck out of them beforehand and they were no longer a threat.
    If he spends two rounds sitting on top of McGregor punching his face in then he will stand and bang in round 3 and Conor will do fookin nuttin just like Edson and Al did.

    If Conor beats Khabib this place will be insufferable.

    I'm really confident Khabib will smash him but the alternative is terrifying.

    Conor would KO Edson and Al in 12 seconds so no comparison friend

    Look, I like to hug Conors nuts as much as the next man but he has to be a slight underdog against Khabib.
    Barbosa would give Conor a serious problem, especially with leg kicks. Agree that Iaquinta is not on Conors level at all.

    Just gonna say that Eddie Alvarez kept saying he wouldn't stand, either.

    Sometimes the plan doesn't happen

    Eddie Alvarez being a striker could have something to do with it as well.
