    On April 7, 2018, Al Iaquinta did a much better job than Conor by lasting all 5 rounds and defending takedowns against Khabib.

    I bet there are hundreds of NCAA college wrestlers at 155 pounds who can do the same takedowns as Khabib against Conor. 19-year-old teenagers in Division 1 don't have the standup striking as Khabib, but they can perform the same maneuvers for the takedown.

    Conor deliberately starved himself and cut from his walkaround weight, so he could fight short guys with short reaches. Chad Mendes is 5' 6" and didn't have a full training camp. If he were 5' 10" and had a bigger gas tank, then he may have won against Conor.

    Conor's winstreak covered up his weak wrestling just like how Ronda Rousey's winstreak covered up her weak boxing. The UFC hyped up both of them to get your money.

    Nah I think people, including myself, actually like Al. He's a pretty funny dude by the looks of it and doesnt take himself too seriously. Been a fan since Masvidal fight, will always be a fan.

    implying conor could have stopped that choke or being beat by something else, and that he only lost because he took risks

    Al is a good fighter, but his fight against khabib was an exhibition/ sparring match and he very well knows this


    There's a reason why no intelligent analysts used that fight to discern Khabib's overall skillset

    That said, It's in his best interest to take this and run with It

    Al went 5 rounds but he took a worse beating then Conor lol look at the state of Al's face after the fight...not to mention Conor actually took a round off Khabib unlike Al, and also landed more shots on Khabib in 3 rounds then Al did in 5. UFC should scrap Al vs Lee, Conor should take a tune-up fight instead of going for the very top and fight Al

    Conor took a round off of Khabib?
    In reality Khabib took that round off so he could finish strong in the 4th and 5th rounds yet still managed to win the round, judges managed to give it to the cash cow in hopes they could eek him a win on the cards.

    I really doubt Khabib willingly let Conor (a man he despises) win the round and also lose his 1st ever round. Neither landed anything huge but Conor outstruck him in round 3 and defended 4 takedown attempts. I mean all 3 judges including every "play by play" score on various website scored it for Conor

    No where did i say he let Conor win a round He beat Conor standing that round. He just eased off his pace a bit because he blitzed him in round 2 and needed to recoup some to finish strong.
    Khabib bless.

    Al did better against Khabib but make no mistake, Conor would finish him in 1 round if they fought

    You didnt say he let him, but you just said Khabib beat Conor in that round <45> it doesnt matter if he eased off, he eased off against Al in the later rounds...Al didnt do any better. Some of you just cant face it that Conor had a little success in the fight even though Khabib actually won the fight

    What? Youre a goof ball. I dont care what the judges scores are, i score fights for myself.
    I think Conor is a decent grappler and did better than guys like Barboza for sure. The only strikes i saw Conor look halfway decent with against Khabib was his teep, and his left to the body. I still felt Khabib landed the harder shots that round so i gave it to him. Simple really.
