Forums - Sports Discussion - Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor

Prediction, Khabib is gonna be suspended for holding that neck crank too long and other ruckus.

IF Khabib is a suspended for a significant period, that opens the door for McGregor vs Ferguson.

So, did anybody else notice the string of fouls? Fouls that were committed by McGregor, that were in rarefied air among the all time worst in the field of sustained flagrant fouls without penalty? What pushes tonight's proceedings into new realms is the superb camera work, which really lingered on the blatant disregard the referee had for the rules. Then some other stuff happened.

Yeah Conor was cheating throughout the fight and didn't get so much as a warning. He was grabbing the fence with his toes, he kneed Khabib in the head when he was grounded, and in round 3 he was grabbing Khabib's gloves to prevent from being taken down.

Edit: Again with the "staged" nonsense. This is the bus incident all over again. I don't think people know what staged means at this point.



Lol, what the hell did Conor do in preparation for this fight? He looked sloppy af. Not even did he not know how to handle Khabib's wrestling, his boxing was probably the worst I've ever seen of him as well.
No comments on what Khabib and his team did afterwards, other than the fact that suspending him would be unfair towards to others who want a shot at a title.
Tony Ferguson vs. Anthony Pettis was the real deal.



If by staged you mean it took place on the ufc or world stage then sure.

Khabib as someone said was on the verge of a massive victory. Then he blew it. He's going to get suspended and fined a shit load. The commission are holding his 2 million payout as we speak. If he is suspended which i think he'll get a big one he'll lose the belt and won't be seen for a while. Mcgregor vs ferguson could happen but mcgregor needs to get rid of that ring rust. That was his worst performance since the 1st diaz fight. The only positive for him is he didn't take major damage.



No love lost in that fight.

I don't think it was ring rust. I just don't think Conor's power is what we thought it was. Up until he fought Nate, Conor was always the bigger man. He just cut a lot of weight. I remember being shocked at how much bigger Conor was than Eddie. The featherweight champ was bigger than the lightweight champ. Conor was dropping guys with he ease. Both Nate and Khabib are bigger than Conor. His power didn't have the same effect on either of them.



A fighter was once fired for attacking someone after the match was over. I can't remember his name. Either way, Khabib's attack and his crews assault on the octogon was significantly worse. He should be stripped of the title and suspended.

Connor deserved it, true. Rules are rules though. Statement has to be made here.

just as i predicted, kabib has faced great stikers before, and won easily, the man has never been rocked. those who were saying conner is on another level were clearly wrong hes the best the ufc has but not on another level
