    Because Conor has zero takedown defense whatsoever, and any grappler can do what Khabib did to Conor.


    Fucking nonsense.

    Have you ever wrestled or grappled a day in your life? Of course his wrestling and TDD is nonexistent relative to Khabib's, but if you actually think he's not going to win another fight and get taken down at will by every other grappler he faces you are higher than I've ever been. It's not like there's a bunch of Khabib's out there.

    Conor has good takedown defense. Its not i nhis sprawl, or his ability shrug it off. Its because he can usually keep himself at a good distance and any level change is easy to spot and he can attack from there.
    Knobby had to chain something together to get in.

    Saying Conor has no groundgame because Knobby had his way with him is the same that Penn had no groundgame based off of what GSp did to him.
    Some guys are just that good at what they do. And Knobby is relentless with the takedowns, and once on the mat, he's impossible to shake off.

    It's not like the book on beating Conor wasn't written a long time ago.
    - don't let him gt in your head
    - don't stand at the end of his jab, get inside
    - takedowns takedowns takedowns

    He's not going to fight every other grappler out there, he's only going to fight top guys, and all the top guys have the grappling to do to him what Khabib did.

    The top 5 not including Conor are....

    Ferg
    Poirier
    Alvarez
    Lee
    Gaethje

    None of them come close to Khabibs wrestling. Conor beats all of those listed, hell he's already beat 2 of them. Sure if the fight hits the ground. Easier said then done.

    They don't need Khabib's wrestling to take him down, they are better wrestlers than Conor is, better grapplers overall.. If Eddie is still in the Top 5 that's a shame, he's the only one dumb enough for Conor to still beat consistently other than Gaethje (who also if is still in the Top 5.. shame) Lee beats Conor, Poirier is a toss-up.

    Agree to disagree. None of the fighters listed beat Conor.

    I sgree with all this but I am counting takedown defense and wrestling as two separate skill sets.

    Nothing wrong with that, not that I would have listed Eddie or Gaethje to beat him anyways.. and just so there's no confusion, I said low chance Conor wins again, not no chance, and I said that factoring in that Conor is only going to fight the top 1% which I figured we'd all be on the same page on.. I just don't see it, Maybe 2 years ago before all this cluster-fuck and he fought Khabib.. but the guy that left the octagon that night isn't a guy I'd pick against the top, and the main component but not the only one is that I just don't think he has the grappling to hang at that level. Conor still beats a good percentage of the guy's in MMA, I just don't think he fights any of them, and why should he?

    I agree about 4/5, but Lee beats every last proper ounce of shit out of Conor.

    For the record, I'm neither calling Sak a racist, nor an asshole, just following classic joke structure, meant to be read in the voice and visage of Groucho Marx waggling his eyebrows and holding a cigar.
