I dont know if the fact that noone has managed to rock Khabib hard in any fight is a good thing for him and he s just superior to everyone in the game, or McGregor will catch him in while he s coming in and destroy him

I'm fairly certain Conor will manage to land nasty shots, question is how tough is Khabib's chin and will it last enough to get to ground and pound and smash

Conor has probably been lowkey training for this fight for two years now. All those instagram photos of him partying nonstop is probably just a ruse to make people underestimate him more than they already have. I think both guys will be surprised come fight night, with khabib feeling conor stuffing his shots more and conor realizing khabib's chin isn't as bad as he thought it was.

For Khabib vs Mcgregor, my thought is pretty simple. If Khabib has a Nate Diaz level chin, he will be able to eat a few shots. He will inevitably close the distance and then just ragdoll Conor. It could get really embarrassing. Thats "IF" Khabib has a rock solid chin like Nate.

The other thing that fascinates me is reach. Conor's ridiculous 74 inch reach is what makes him able to fight the way he fights. The reason why Nate was such a matchup nightmare was because Nate has a fucking 77 inch reach! Plus he has great cardio, and a good chin. I really get frustrated when people say Conor isn't that good because he lost to Nate. Styles and matchups make fights. Also Conor fought like an idiot in the 1st match lol.

Anyway, I am inclined to believe Khabib has a good chin. I see him weathering a decent 1st round by Conor. Then Conor loses pop on his striking and Khabib will take over. Khabib only has a 70 inch reach, so you would think Conor would be able to dictate the distance as he does in most fights, but Chad Mendes and his 69 inch was able to close the distance and get take downs. But what do I know PS. I hope Conor wins because his fighting style is the most exciting to me

At that odds I like for betting:

- Mcgregor (good odds)
- Evinger (Aspen Ladd is overrated)
- Sean O Malley ("El Teco" is really bad)
- Tony Ferguson

No. Connor drinks and does a ton of blow. He is Irish white trash and loves to party. He still works out and can get into great fighting condition though; they aren't mutually exclusive.

Anyways, I'm all in on Khabib at -140. Just seems like the value is too good. In the last 5 years McG's only GREAT win is Aldo. Nate is a tough matchup but he struggled there and Alvarez is a can. This should be his toughest fight; basically a non manlet Mendes who won't instantly gas in the 2nd.

All that said I do think Connor has a good chance of straight up starching him in the first or maybe 2nd

Sup Cam. Rooting for McG w/ da early KO - odds on Khabib are pretty juicy though, he should prolly be a bigger fav. That said, McG early KO is very possible - hes a fast starter and the moment is never too big for him, on the other hand Khabib always looks rusty and sloppy early - he could very well panic, rush in with his hands down, leave himself open, and get slept.

Thing is .... Khabib will be basically a welterweight when he fights, as he usually is, while Conor will be a lightweight. Conor was huge for featherweight, Khabib is huge for lightweight. People are legit afraid of him once they get inside the cage and realize what is going on, plus the massive size probably makes it much harder for him to get KOd, in theory, he should be the toughest KO in McGregor's career so far and he only managed to KO Aldo quickly, because of Aldo's mistake.


Then again Khabib kind of overextends with his legs a lot, which will be instantly punished by Conor, especially considering his reach advantage. Khabib likes to extend his legs, force opponent to hit him, then go in for the TD when they overextend, except Conor seems like he s too good to overextend. It's gonna be the speed and precision of Conor against the patience of Khabib, if Khabib's patience holds he ll eventually crush his soul on the ground

Khabib is just trying to restrain himself from not hitting McGregor in the face right there and not ruin the fight. He s probably gonna get at least 7 figures so

Khabib wouldn't touch Conor with a strike in a face-off. He'd get countered easily.

There's a big difference in speed, power, and precision in the striking department. Khabib knows he needs to get the fight down to the ground right away. I assume he'll circle Conor a little bit and throw one of his slow overhand punches and use it as a way to shoot for a take down, which is an old strategy wrestlers used to use.

Theoretically, Khabib should let Conor engage considering the fight styles they have. I would really be worried if im engaging vs McGregor, he has such a good perception of what his range is combined with the left hand, every time Khabib goes in he s putting the match on the line basically

Khabib is higher than McGregor though, which isn't usually the case. McGregor seemed much bigger and taller than any of his previous opponents, except Diaz.

Conor won't engage and be the aggressor against Khabib, unless he has Khabib hurt.

Conor is known for being a counter striker. He makes his opponents react and/or make a mistake, and then he counters them. If he sees them hurt, he will speed up his shots but still take his time so every shot lands and keep his distance, instead of brawling.

If you think about the majority of Conor's UFC wins, they are via counters:

• Marcus Brimage (counter combo)
• Max Holloway (decision)
• Diego Brandao (counter, plus Diego only throws 1 big punch at a time)
• Dustin Poirier (I don't remember if this was a counter)
• Dennis Siver (Siver was tired and Conor had him against the cage)
• Chad Mendes (Mendes was tired and Conor had him against the cage)
• Jose Aldo (counter left, one punch)
• Nate Diaz (Conor lost via gassing himself out from throwing 100% power shots for 1.5 rounds)
• Nate Diaz (decision)
• Eddie Alvarez (counter into a sweet 3 or 4 punch combo into a knockdown)

It's what im saying, that's where he has success at, so if I'm Khabib I'll force him into engaging. I'm guessing Conor instantly rushes to gain the middle position in the octagon so he can force him on the external side and force Khabib into being the engager.


P.S. just saw it vs Poirier and he actually just landed 2 left hands as original agressor, the 2nd one put him on the ground, but he forced him to run around the external side of the octagon after few good counters which set this up
