Winner of this one should be the consensus contender for the winner of Mouse vs. Cejudo 2. Both would present a fresh challenge for the Mouse.

Best of ufc reported that conner mcgregors team posted on twitter that they bought their travel tickets for ufc 229 and that the khabib fight was on. But then they deleted the tweet. I suspect its true and they weren't suppose to say nothing. but if its not then i dont know why they would have done that except to get likes or retweets or something pathetic like that. Heres hoping its on. I was a mcgregor fan untill the bus fiasco now i can't wait to c habib smash his ****en face in.

Conor vs Khabib is currently on a Blue Ball World Tour. Reminding the minorities and hyping the fanatics sub-consciously of possibly the best match-up in Human History. Teasing us without mercy. Hoping to build and invest as much interest as possible before it actually happens.

Yeah. Do u think the bus attack was planned? I do. I swear i watch dana giving that interview whare he says he is disgusted in conner it seems like he's trying not to smile. Like he's proud of himself for pulling a vince mcmahon move ala wwe. Mark my words dana white will b the death of ufc. ****en guy spends more money on his kids birthday partys then he does on his fighters. His own mom says he is a ***** who ****s all the ring girls and apperently acording to brenden schuab he ****** ronda rousey and tries to **** over all the fighters who have hot wives that he cant ****. To bad the fertittas never put a hit on him. Maybe the ufc wouldnt be the ****show it is today.

To be fair free, if I owned the UFC I'd be smashing ring girls too.

In fact after a a few years of that **** I'd probably have gone to god in the style of leisure suit larry....

I do agree with you though, he's pretty much cashed out andf is just going through the motions. Needs to get the **** out of it all at this point really, he's no longer good to anybody.

I don't know how this is going to go, and I find that magical.

Haha. I can't believe I called this fight that early. I'm just glad the 2 best lw's are fighting and it's a clash of styles.

This fight will be legendary either Khabib wrestles him to him to win or Connor KO's him and regain his championship. Whoever wins is going to fight Tony. If Tony loses and either Connor or Khabib remain the champ a rematch will be in order.

This is the worst possible match up for Conor but at the same time I think someone who strikes as accurate as Conor does have a good chance to rock Khabib and finish the night early with as often as Khabib lets his hands down. I'm gonna go against the grain of popular belief and say that Conor will take the MMA world by surprise yet again with a 2nd round TKO.

Quick and painless or a long and drawn out ass whoopin'

Predictions: 12 of 12 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 374 others   |   View

Conor could knock Khabib out, that's a real possibility, but he doesn't have much time. Khabib isn't going to be roleplaying as Muhammad Ali, anymore. He's going to constantly try to take down Conor and even if he doesn't land every takedown, he will make Conor exhausted and then the defenses come less and less and then the slow painful ass whoopin' begins. No finishes here, folks.

Well if khabib is the one who is wrestling and conor remains relaxed, avoids damage, and gets to manageable positions, wouldnt khabib be the one doing all the work? I know the avoiding damage part is hard, but it's doable.

Conor has about 2 rounds to end it (Not impossible) but after that Khabib will really take over and wear Conor down and pummel him on the ground.

I have nothing but contempt for Mcgregor, but I feel as though he is being dismissed out of hand in this fight by the fans. Realistically, he does have a very, very good chance of winning this fight by KO. I hoe that doesn't come to pass but all the same, he has at least a 50/50 shot.

I think this will be an all out war. Khabib will get takedowns and Conor will get knockdowns. Whoever's the best will win.
