    Haven't been able to confirm but huge if true

    I was thinking Conor would knock Khabib out in the 2md, but now it's looking more and more like a R1 KO.

    Khabib won't get him down once, bros.

    It’s gonna take more than 10 weeks of working with Burroughs to stop Khabibs takedowns, if Khabib is able to get it to the clinch. That said, Conor may piece him up standing and it won’t matter.

    Lol @ thinking Barbosa is anywhere near Conor's level.

    Stop trolling.

    First part of this post is absolute nonsense.

    Second part is on point.

    Barboza - 19 wins, 11 KOs (7 KOs in 1st round)

    Conor - 21 wins, 18 KOs (13 KOs in 1st round)

    Conor is undoubtedly more dangerous than Barboza, goof.

    Take the Irish dick out of your ass for a second, and check resumes as opposed to records.

    good addition to Conor's camp but not sure wrestling is something you can learn in couple months

    Conor's intelligent so I think he can pick it up but couple weeks is too short

    GSP, who had no wrestling background dominated wrestling in MMA due to his Karate timing (level change) and Conor's timing is good too but couple weeks is too short for any significant improvement

    Conor's chance vs Khabib is stun him first to make Khabib hesitate on closing the distance, then use movement to get in position to finish

    Of course Khabib will get him down. What happens after that is what makes it interesting.
    I'm more concerned the fight won't happen for some weird injury reason.

    Conor and Barboza are both great strikers, but in a much different way. Barboza isn't a great puncher, he's got great kicks and great clinch work which he embraces when people are in punching range. It's pretty easy to take down a kicker who embraces the clinch, but Conor is more of a puncher who avoids clinch at all cost and routinely keeps control of the distance with his punches.
    This is going to be a much harder fight for khabib, especially coz who knows how much wrestling and jujitz Connors been training in the last couple of years since we saw him fight.

    He could train all day every day and he still won’t be able to stop Khabibs takedowns, same as khabib could work with the best boxers in the world and wouldn’t be as good as Conor on the feet.

    If you watch the video again you see the bus driver reach over and open the door a couple of times. You can see the bus driver is confused, he’s like “hey buddy are you getting on or not, I’m on a schedule here.”

    Then you can see Conor give him a slight head shake to say “Play along buddy, I’ve only got another couple of months left of this shit before even my saddest nutthuggers get bored of my schtick.”
