Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor II

Who is going to win the Rematch ?

The first match happened on 6th October 2018. Khabib schooled the top dog and humiliated him throughout the fight and forced him to submit in front of the pro-McGregor fans.  After losing to Khabib the Eagle, Conor McGregor is looking for a rematch. Conor who is a follower of Floyd Mayweather and loves to earn through hate following. He relies upon the trash talking and misbehaves to get into the skin of the opponent and to get some extra money by tickets and Pay per View purchases.  Khabib is a good boy of sports. A shy and less talkative man who responses all the trash talks with his strikes, in the ring only. Unlike Conor, Khabib has a heroic persona and people love to see him winning. Let us analyze the rematch on the basis of the first match.

Power

Before the first fight people thought Conor is more powerful than Khabib, but after those four rounds, everyone came to know that case was opposite, in the second round, Khabib dropped Conor for the first time in his career with a devastating punch on the jaw.

It will not be wrong if someone picks Khabib as the best grappler in the sports. Khabib started grappling at the age of 6, with a bear. When Khabib wants a takedown he manages to get it at any stage of the fight. He has a record of 23 takedowns in a match.  Khabib is more technical in all the departments.

Khabib never lost a single round in his entire career. He is the best in point scoring. But Conor is favorite of judges and always wins the close rounds. One cannot beat Conor on the points, submission or knockout is must in this regard. Furthermore, Conor is always allowed to catch hands of opponents, poke their eyes, and throw illegal elbow strikes.  Judges and referees just overlook these acts of Conor.

Conor McGregor loses his stamina during the fights and we have witnessed this many times. Khabib never loses his pace throughout the fight. He fights with the same energy until the final bell.

Khabib 10 -9 Conor

Chin

Both the fighters have a tested chin and can absorb a power strike and fight back but after the first match, we have seen Khabib has a strong chin and can bear all sort of legal and illegal blows.

Khabib 10 – 10 Conor

Conclusion

The unbeaten Khabib is again going to win the bout in a better fashion, may be an early knockout or submission. BUT we cannot overlook the judges, bad judgments and robberies are now permanent parts of Boxing and MMA.  If this fight goes to the scorecard, we can see a similar result like two fights of Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez or Conor Vs Diaz II.

We would love to hear your opinion.  Let us know your pick.
