Khabib vs Connor

Khabib vs Connor
Anyone got anything to say about it?

It went pretty much as predicted, but I thought Connor may have had a chance at landing a wild powerful knockout punch.
It was way more one sided than the fight Connor lost against Nate Diaz, but finished in a similar way.

Obviously Khabib and his team did some stupid stuff after the fight which could delay when he can fight again. Some people saying he might not fight in the UFC again but after what Connor did and got away with I don't think he will be banned.


Are you ready for the fire? We are firemen. WE ARE FIREMEN! The heat doesn’t bother us. We live in the heat. We train in the heat. It tells us that we’re ready, we’re at home, we’re where we’re supposed to be. Flames don’t intimidate us. What do we do? We control the flame. We control them. We move the flames where we want to. And then we extinguish them.

Impersonation is treason.

I didn’t see the fight but sounds like it was chaos at the end. It looks like Khabib’s wrestling skills won it. Three of his team were arrested. Mcgregor was attacked but says he ain’t gonna press charges. Khabib’s payment has been withheld pending an investigation. Mcgregor’s payment has been released.

I don't know if you're joking about him being Scottish but he's Irish incase you aren't.

I watched the fight, and I think Dana White wanted his big draw McGregor to win. I also think Herb Dean was probably a co-conspirator in trying to make that happen. McGregor cheated multiple times in multiple ways during the fight, and Dean did almost nothing. illegal knee to the head, hooking Khabib's glove, grabbing the fence. Dean called him one time for toes in the fence...

As far as what the UFC should do goes, what did they do to McGregor after the New York incident? Khabib certainly shouldn't get any punishment worse than what McGregor got for that. Less would be appropriate because Khabib's actions were heat of the moment. McGregor's actions in New York were preplanned.

As for legal ramifications once again what happened to McGregor after his incident? Does what Khabib did deserve worse? I obviously don't think so. If charges are filed against Khabib he should probably use fighting words as a defense. Whoever it was that came over the fence and assaulted McGregor should probably face some consequences, but pulling Khabib's title or green card for going after someone standing there insulting his mother (or whatever was being said) would be a bit extreme.

It all set up nicely for rematch.

Probably, but I think during the post fight it was Joe Rogan that said something along the lines of, "What rematch? Khabib dominated the fight. No need for a rematch."

I think Conor did much worse than khabib in terms of criminal acts but I think khabib took the confused innocence act too far asking "why are people talking about me jumping over?"
In a press conference that was like an hour after khabib jumps over the ring and hits someone obviously they're going to talk about it.
And he kept saying people can't talk badly about his religion and he wants to change things. I don't think a UFC fighter is going to change freedom of speech in America.
Although some Muslims I know are claiming what Conor said was hate speech, I don't really know all that was said.

I haven't been into the UFC lately. I may watch some of it from time to time but rarely. 

I did see the after fight video. The three people that attack Conor, i felt should suffer some legal charges. Khabib should only get a year suspension. Conor should've been banned after that bus incident. 

I should be the UFC judge.  Cool
