    Yes but a Chad Mendes on a 2 week camp got Conor down and Nathan with 0 wrestling had him on the ground....I don't see Conor's 1 punch KO power there at 155...Khabib gets his hands on the paper champ and the fight is going to the ground and when that happens, Conor will be there for the duration
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Oh yeah, I don't disagree, Conor hasn't 'ducked' anyone......I was just pointing out that he has balls, like he's always had, despite being a bit of a dick in the last few years.

    Agreed, I think Khabib will win and maybe easily......but there is 100% a chance that Conor knocks him out cold, especially early in the fight. Khabib is very hittable and usually takes at least half of the first round to find his range and shoot a TD, and in that half round he's been rocked more than a few times.

    For sure, but he's not shown any evidence of being a draw thus far. Granted UFC 223 was a bust with cancelled fights and that, but it only did an estimated 250k buys with Khabib headlining. He would likely gain some traction from beating Conor, but there has been no evidence of a draw being passed to the winner before. Even the talk of Russia being behind him, a huge country....that's a country where they don't have PPV, so it's really irrelevant to his drawing power.

    I don't think that Khabib and CMAC happens. I think Khabib pulls out and Nate rolls in there. Calling it now.

    But hell at this point, Bruce Lee could fall from the heavens to do a massive PPV fight with Nate Diaz that could do 5 Million buys, and he'd probably refuse to do it over some shit Dana White said or because of some diss that Nick experienced at a card or something.

    That dude is the dumbest fighter of all time other than one other guy and that's his brother Nick Diaz.

    Agreed. Diaz has ruined his chances of making himself a star, a PPV drawing star too. He missed his chance to really push himself forward when the media were calling, by fighting and winning. Those Diaz bros are really not clever.
