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.
