WazZ this was 'm seeing! "as the utube buttons gets pressed" McGregor Vs Khabib ON Oct 6/9th

As I said before Eva McGregor keeping him at the end of his jab "n maybe" utilising the effective Stomach kick Occasionally, KO's Khabab.OR and most likely I (say) " He doesn't want any part of Conors Stand up! ' MentalMatters' being Correct n KN's Gonna gonna have Him on the Canvas ASAP.

G `day Bird

Watch the Conor take down defense vid I linked .
I learnt a lot watching that vid . Touching his opponent on the chest / shoulder gives Conor an early warning the opponent is going to shoot . Subtle but very effective .

Khabib doesn`t shoot like Merican wrestlers . He wants to grab a hold first . To grab a hold he must get close - danger !

I was once a Conor hater . More insight has turned me around .

Ragin Al vs Khabib showed tactics to disrupt Khabib`s take downs . Khabib vs Micheal Johnson ; Johnson was sticking and moving early . Was having a lot of sucess Khabib looked slow . Till he got hold of Johnson and smothered him . I expect Conor vs Khabib to be similar but Conor getting back up and resetting

Thanks for sharin

That was an interesting video, Elmer. And conor has long arms for his height too, so he can touch his opponent from relatively far away and gives him more room to evade takedown attempts.
It does leave him vulnerable to opponent's right hands but he's got a solid chin and good reflexes to avoid getting hurt too much.

But then i saw a replay of his fight against chad mendes at ufc 185, and he got taken down like 5-6 times in the 2+ rounds before he knocked out mendes. Ate a fair number of shots on the ground, including an elbow that cut his eyebrow. But for all that, he displayed poise on the ground, and let mendes spend a lot of energy trying to ground and pound, so that after they got back up after the final takedown mendes couldnt keep his hands up and conor landed a left flush on the chin.

But chad was a last minute replacement for aldo so maybe his cardio wasnt good without a full camp to train up, and khabib has cardio for days and can take down anyone. Which is why he opened up the betting favorite over conor.

We'll see how it goes, i like conor, despite his antics, he's got this bravado/showmanship that's entertaining, so i would go with conor by tko in the 3rd...

G `day BB

I said it a while back ,smart fighters / coaches watch tape and learn each others moves .
Fighter might be practicing counters or game plans years ahead of facing guys .

Listening to Bang Ludwig talk about Garbrant ; he`s fast and aggressive but drops his left hand . A lot of work would have been done to exploit that tiny opening .

What impressed me was when I watched the Gracie break down of Chad vs Conor . Team Alpha Male are guillotine specialists . Chad tried to slap one on . Conor used the perfect counter at just the right moment .

Then the other day I see Eddie Bravo say Conor visited his gym and asked to roll with his best guys . Eddie said he`s very good ...

Has anyone taken Khabib down ? He looks real good on top . How is he from the bottom ?

Bellator has some interesting fights coming up . Uncle Chael vs Fedor !!

Thanks for sharin

It's interesting to hear the pro's picks on mcgregor-nurmagomedov. GSP picks khabib just cause he has multiple ways he can win, wrestling, ground n pound, submission. Whereas, conor's only realistic chance at winning is catching khabib coming in with a left hand.
Khabib can pretty much take down any one at will, even if conor defends the first attempt, if khabib has him backed up against the cage and has one or both legs, conor is going down. And his ground control is amazing.
But watching that iaquinta fight, yeah, khabib beat up al on the ground the first two rounds, but then he kept the fight standing the last 3 rounds, except for a late takedown in the 5th. Kind of strange, and khabib ate some shots from Al but wasnt really hurt or marked up, whereas he was jabbing al's face into a bloody mess. Maybe he wanted to make a statement that he's got striking skills too, but obviously if he tries that against conor he'll likely get ko'd.
Do you really think conor is going to take down khabib, elmer? That would be... unexpected.

Khabib uses the cage for take downs.
If you angle off from the cage what is plan B ?

No one remember Conor taking Nate Diaz down at the end of the round in their 1st fight ?
How about when he took down Max Holloway and controlled him ?

Not the 1 trick pony many people think .

Khabib loves the wrist grab to stop the opponent creating the "tripod " and standing up . Not allowing the wrist control is the key .

Al was taken down early because he was parrying Khabib`s jab . Keeping his right by his chin .Not able to push away or under hook .When Khabib ducked under .
Later rounds he adjusted his right arm lower . Took a lot of jabs to the face but shut the door on Khabib`s entrance to the take down he used early . This would have been noted ...

Could look like Honda vs Holly .


Thanks for sharin
