Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to press McGregor early in this fight, from the round one bell we can expect the Russian to put pressure on Conor. Khabib’s problem is, he does not have good footwork, or lateral movement. McGregor will be mobile, elusive and prepared to spend some time on ground if needs be.
We have seen Khabib being hurt by punches in the past, but nobody has been able to land one to drop him. McGregor is almost certain to land a telling left hand at one point or another. This will stunt Khabib’s movement further, which will play into Conor’s hands – literally. McGregor’s timing is truly world class and while the fight is on the feet, Nurmagomedov is in a world of danger. If it goes to the ground, there is a good chance Khabib will make things very uncomfortable for McGregor, but all things considered, McGregor looks the value play to finish Khabib at some stage of the fight, but certainly inside the distance. It could go a few round though!
