Teams: F.C. Juventus of Turin
Khabib obviously the more personable fighter with the humble demeanor, McGregor is the one better at the theatrics and promotion, it was a clash of different styles, ultimately Khabib's superior ground game is what won it comfortably for him. I prefer McGregor's striking style, but it's always nice when a loudmouth gets taken down a notch.
It was a good fight, not sure what people expected, this is what an MMA fight is about. McGregor did well to defend a lot of the takedowns, but Khabib's relentlessness and technical ability on the mat is what counted.
It's just that MMA favours good wrestlers a lot, the smart money will always be on the fighter with the better ground game.
