    If conor hits the floor once he better get back up or he will get mauled and gas out.

    Just can’t see Conor winning this, Khabib is going to run him over and I’ve got this ending via TKO

    I think Conor's timing, precision and awareness of distance makes him dangerous in the early rounds. Khabib can't rush in like he did against Barboza.

    But if Khabib gets it down and the longer the fight goes it could get very ugly for Conor.

    I got Khabib via TKO (ground and pound)

    Conor can KO anyone though. Khabib needs to be heavy pressure but not sloppy.

    I agree

    And if it stays standing khabib gets very sloppy so will be eating left hands

    Interesting fight

    Conor by KO in the 2nd. Could go either way but I'm feeling good about Conor's chances. He's not going to be easy to back up, his control of distance is about as good as anyone in MMA, is good at getting back to his feet when he does get taken down and then Khabib's striking is so rudimentary that if he has to stand in-front of Conor for any amount of time he's going to get lit up. Khabib's good, but I think this fight will prove he's not as unbeatable as everyone makes him out to be, though could easily prove me wrong. Either way, I can't **** wait!

    Same. Either a Conor early KO or Khabib is going to tko him. Too bad I wont be able to watch live

    This is the best match up in any title fight imo.

    Both specialist in one field.

    i give mcgregor a punchers chance based on his power alone, but khabib should run through him easily if he can hold his composure and fight smart. Should be a really good fight though.

    Want Conor, but I feel it's easier for Khabib to get Conor to ground...

    I'll back Conor, but yeah, Khabibs set of skills should win him the fight, as he takes it to ground & he's won that round... just has to do that a few times really.

    I think people underestimate connors ground game. I know Khabib is great on the ground and Connor got controlled by Diaz but Diaz is also way bigger than Connor and khabib. Think it's gonna be a good fight and Connor wins

    it can often lead to a boring decision win for the wrestler

    Don't think it will be the case with this fight though, should be entertaining whoever wins

    Lets see if Khabib can eat that left had. If we see Khabib shaking it off it'll be a long or even short night for Conor.

    Diaz is not way bigger than both. Diaz is a 155er you fell for the mcgregor spin.

    Diaz would literally get rag dolled by Khabib lmao. Khabib is stronger and ten times the wrestler Diaz ever will be

    I hope Khabib, like others have said it can go either way depending how they control the fight.

    I think McGregor will get the KO If he can stay on his feet, but I’ve not seen anyone as good as Khabib on the ground.
    With how accurate Connor is aswell it will be Intresting to see how much pressure Khabib puts on him.
    One takedown and it’s over though imo

    Khabib will probably end up eating shots, so depends if he can knock out Khabib or not

    Going to be very close.

    Go watch what a half fit Chad Mendes did to Conor

    Khabib is a lot bigger than Chad and has better grappling and gnp

    McGregor with a first round knockout, he has got into Khabab's head, like every sport mentality is 50% of the battle.

    How did you figure this out?

    Conor is the one who got riled up cause of his training partner.

    All i know is this fight has become super personal with both attacking each other.

    Funny thing is Mcgregor always says how his forefathers fought the English off but his grandfather was with the english navy fighting the irish :joy: :joy:

    Swear mcgregor fan boys enjoy the fake press conference stuff more than the actual fighting :D

    When he beat aldo it was because of the mind games and he lost to diaz because nate didn't buy in to it :D

    Funny stuff

    A half fit Mendes vs Conor on one leg. Conor tore his knee ligaments up so bad he nearly had to pull out of the fight. And what happened to Chad? He got a few takedowns but got battered from the bottom and ultimately KO'd stiff. Khabib's bigger and a better grappler when it hits the mat but Mendes is much more explosive, significantly more dangerous on the feet and has better pure takedowns (a better initial shot) than Khabib.
