Because he wasn't KO'd, Johnson is a tough dude and can take a serious beating and let's not forget that he's actually better than Khabib on the feet. Thank god for Khabib's great ground game because if he ain't have that I think Michael Johnson would have won this fight.
Khabib isn't that great on his feet but yet Johnson still didn't finish him. Johnson striking is a little overrated imo. He could've picked Khabib apart on the feet but didn't happen and seem like he couldn't.
He rocked Khabib on the feet and NOTE that I never said Khabib's stand up was trash. Johnson's stand up is still better than Khabib's but Khabib's stand up is decent though and I still think that if Khabib's ground game wasn't so good then the result of this fight would have been different but respect to Khabib though. He'a a hell of a fighter.
Note I never said that you said that Khabib stand up is trash lol I'm the one saying khabib's stand up is trash so for Johnson to not being able to finish him isn't that good of an impression. He rocked khabib, I'll give him that though but that's it, khabib was able to stand with him so that says it all. Khabib could be a beast if he adjust his striking some more
I think you guys need to watch round 1 again- I never saw Khabib rocked. At best maybe tagged and he countered in a flurry that took Johnson to the ground. I was honestly surprised Alvarez was able to pull off a ko against dos Anjos just as surprised how much bigger mcgeregor was that Alvarez. But you can rest assured without fail, whether mcregor is able to tag Khabib or not- he will be taken to the ground and the spectacle will finally be over with unless he go up to welterweigbt where he belongs and get destroyed by Woodley. Rhw luckiest motherfucker I ever seen be able to navigate through this sport. I don't care whether or not the weight cut is way too gruelling on him to cut to featherweight- he owes Aldo a rematch and Aldo will not make the same mistake twice- either way the spectacle will co e crashing down and Khabib looks like the first cancandidate to dismantle the clown.
He rocked Khabib when it was 3:27 left on the clock.
Is Rashad Johnsons nickname?
no, coaches often call for the next coach to talk when they are done. and Henry Houfes accent and speech pattern made it sound like he was saying "okay, rashad?" to mike. but he says Okay? (to mike) and Rashad.(to rashad giving him his time to give mike advice. Rashad is on the outside of the cage. Rashad Evans
i think mcgregor ko´s kabib, i wanna see him fight ferguson who has a really good ground game, whilst mcg. take a break
i do too but if khabib can pull a new era Maia and keep his head out of the way, he might survive. such an interesting match up. Conor is dominate on stand up with most fighters (sans diaz) and khabib is absolutely the nasiest grappler in the league aside from jacare, maia and a few others

I totally agree. I know khabib deserves a title shot but knowing him and Ferguson went at it on social media for a while, I think it's best they duke it out to show who's the true number one contender. If diaz wanna fight conor, he should prove himself on 155 because we all know he isn't that great against top 3-4 light weight contenders. He got where he is today because of Conor. He just so happens to have a mean chin and cardio. He couldn't do anything against conor besides keep walking forward while eating a lot of punches. He should fight Ferguson, he have no chance against khabib for sure.
Your not giving Diaz nearly enough credit bro. Him and his brother are phenomenal boxers, high level bjj blackbelts, have good wrestling, iron jaws, and a true warriors spirit. Plus they talk hilarious trash and smoke tons of pot. My favorite kind of fighter.
I agree Diaz should fight Furgesen or Khabib though. I mean theyve been way more active than he has, Fergusen more so. It just sucks that Connor gets a rematch immediately after his loss to Nate but he gets told he probably won't get a rematch. Connor runs that shit. Connor does not wanna face Khabib i know that for sure.
The guys who say Khabib could lose to Michael Johnson are beyond making a sane man laughing. They simply are jealous and cowards and do not know a real thing about fighting. Because fighting is being truthful and loyal above everything else and they're chickens who talk like a cheated bitch
