I was leaning towards Conor to get the job done, and if there's someone who can catch Khabib coming in, it's Conor.
But after watching this breakdown, I don't know. Khabib will probably maul him like everybody else :D

Sorry I don't know how to sink the video here.

I can absolutely see Conor sparking Khabib, but I actually think he’s going to get dominated.

Ya things get interesting tho if Kaybiby can't finish him or has trouble taken him down and keeping him there.
Conor likely needs a finish within three unless he is hurting him left and right.Can Conor hurt big head tho?I know he will be landing

I think Volkov likely puts a proper beating on the Black Beast

I’m really interested to see this fight. Hopefully Lewis’ back is ok and comes in healthy.

Never count him out due to his power. Can’t wait to see this matchup. Winner might be in line for a title shot or #1 contender bout.
