It's almost that time! In just a couple days we'll finally get to see Conor McGregor take on Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title. But who really thinks about the titles anymore? That's not what this particular fight is even about. This fight is purely a grudge match, period. It's pretty amazing just how fast the build up for this happened. It went from zero to 100 in basically just one afternoon.
I, just like most others, didn't even have this on our radar until we heard about Conor and his team running up and attacking Khabib's tour bus. That one incident sparked this entire showdown. And who knows, it may have all been choreographed from the beginning, not that it really matters at this point. If there's one thing UFC fans can't get enough of, it's a bad-blood "super fight".
I want to note that I think what Conor did here was just dumb. He should not have done this at his level of success. That's what's making me think this could all just be fake, probably not, but could be. If you didn't see the video of the incident I'm referring to, take a look :
I think Conor will win this fight. I don't think he deserves to, but I think he'll win. He's just proven himself too many times. And I don't think Khabib has what it takes to knock or tap Conor out. What do you think?
