What do you think guys? Think Khabib could clinch it? This'll be Conor's toughest fight?
I want to say Khabib by TKO in R2 or R3. But I think it'll go SD win for Khabib.
Conors already won with the pay day he is getting
One of those fights that could easily go either way. If McGregor lands some solid hits it could be lights out for Khabib, but on the other hand if he can't keep the fight standing he's in for a world of pain.
Well that was all sorts of interesting.
I heard a few people predicting a riot at the end with either outcome, I guess Khabib doesn't plan to fight in UFC anymore
Khabib should be fine. But the ufc is so biased as to who gets punished for what I've no idea what will happen. Dana will see the dollar signs and what khabib did will be promo for his next fight. Mma and the ufc are complete clownshoes.
Why the heck did that happen?
It’s not good for MMA and possibly martial arts as a whole.
Watch the language please.
NO spoilers please! A lot of people haven't seen it yet including me!
I blame Vodka
'I did warn you all that I might lose' insists Conor McGregor
This may or not be true... So no spoiler tags needed!
Spoiler: Main event
Can't say I feel sorry for McGregor and his team (for the loss, or for getting attacked), they're a bunch of clowns who have acted just as bad, if not worse, on several occasions in the past. I can understand Khabib's reaction entirely. That Dillon Danis is a tool, along with everyone else in the world who thinks you can expect to insult and disrespect a man, his family, and his country, without any consequences.
Only disappointed that Khabib had to sully his victory by stooping to McGregor's level. I'm sure the UFC will punish him more than McGregor ever was.
Antics aside, it was a great fight, Khabib looked absolutely brilliant. Especially the fact that he even managed to drop McGregor during a stand-up exchange, something nobody's done before, least of all a man who critics often claimed had terrible boxing.
The rest of the card was great too. Ferguson vs Pettis, what a bloody mess that was.
Is it too early to post pictures of the cage after the fight?
I can not understand why Dana was so shocked by what happened?
He egged on conor rewarded him with a title fight after the criminal attack he and his mates made, what did he expect was going to happen there would be no comeback and kalib would simply shake hands after all this rubbish?
Hopefully this will be the end of 8 figure paydays for Connor in fights against people he can't beat unless a miracle happens...but whilst the fighting Irish are willing to but tickets for matches which are freak shows he will always make money
and judging by this clip McGregor started the rap in the cage by taking an unprovoked swing at one of kalibs coaches whilst trying to climb over the cage Twitter
A quick question for you experienced MMA/grapplers. The finisher was a neck crank rather than RNC, and I understand it is much more painful than the RNC.
How much do you think that technique was deliberately selected, rather than taking what was available? In other words, did he decide to hurt and humiliate, rather than just get the tap, or was that just what presented itself?
That is an entirely plausible possibility. Without asking Khabib it'd be hard to say though because these kind of techniques have been used by others without the associated animosity (Demian Maia/Rick Story for example).
Conor had his chin tucked defending the choke the crank is usually used to get access to the neck by forcing them to lift their chin, its more painful but less reliable as you can just grit your teeth and take it especially with the adreline of a fight,
But I think the extra aggression put into the sub added to the fact Connor was mentally done having to grapple with someone so much better than him ( I think how much better on the ground khabib was shocked McGregor) meant he got the tap.
That's a choke/jaw crush rather than a proper neck crank. It hurts, but you will also go to sleep from it if properly applied.
If Khabib had the intent to inflict maximum harm he'd just have kept hitting him, rather than going for any kind of sub.
