Nuclear War (MMA style) UK vs Russia (McGregor vs Khabib)

So we know how the UK media loves to drum up conflict and hatred for the Russians.. yet Putin keeps putting off the big dance.
Thankfully.. we're talkin nuclear war here..

Well.. we'll have to settle for:
Nuclear war in the MMA ring.. (well and Conors an Irishman)

Khabib vs Conor .. (with Vegas odds slightly in favor of Khabib)

What say ye?

Normally I say great wrestling/grappling beats stand-up.. but with Conor there's always a threat of a KO.
Personally I think Khabib dodged the more dangerous matchup in Tony Ferguson.. he gets his pay-day tho

Kahbib had better keep his chin down. Conor has a lot quicker movement and has one punch knockout power. Its either going to be a short fight or Kahbib will lay on top of Conor for 5 rounds.

The Woodley/Till fight is more interesting actually. Till is not an easy matchup for Woodley.

Conor and the only reason for us is I like to see people that are dominate stay that way for as long as possible.

But every champ goes down eventually.

The Woodley fight is interesting as well its a good card

Re Conor vs Khabib..
Such a fight of extremes
If Conor can keep standing, hes got the death touch
If Khabib can take him down, hes gonna rub him out

Close fight and a most interesting one
Southpaw striker with KO power vs the supreme sticky grappler
both do not appear intimidating but both are elite in their game


Conor's demeanor has changed from confidence to arrogance
..and with many fighters or any man who has achieved $ the downfall of the strike of grace cometh

I am calling it Khabib in the later rounds via ground and pound

what no fight fans in bimmer land?

the "king" had no clothes
brutal sport
disappointed in Mcgregor and Khabib both
Mcgregor couldnt back up his ridiculously unsportsmanlike behavior and insulting trashtalk
Khabib however couldnt maintain the moral high ground jumping over the octagon going after trashtalking coach Danis ..
Yer right Khabib your father will kick yer asp abit for this
but what did everyone really expect?
Dana White allowed the ridiculously insulting and unsportman-like buildups and behaviors leading up to this finish..just to sell a fight
he is somewhat responsible for all of this

Khabib's strategy worked like a charm
got the contest on the ground early sapped him alil like a python
ground and pounded him like a piece of steak in round 2
once in round 3 the match was foregone tho both fighters tire, the benefit shifts to the grappler w/ world class conditioning
toe to toe when its abit safer in round 4 then finish it off on the ground

Is Khabib the best lightweight?
He retains the belt
however the remaining money fights which will be forthcoming:
Khabib vs Ferguson .. a more dangerous fighter than mcgregor imo
Winner vs GSP

this sets up well for the UFC even w/o Mcgregor's dramas
Khabib and Ferguson in Russia
then GSP returns to the ring

A bit glad the contest result turned out the way it did
A win by Mcgregor sanctions ever such behavior in the future
the self proclaimed king was revealed to be less
and his mouth will be abit more silenced and respectful in the future..maybe
