In the end it’s striker vs. grappler which is cause the biggest fight in ufc history is kind of a throwback— Matt Brown (@IamTheImmortal) October 7, 2018
I think we're watching a combination of two things... Connor didn't beat Khabib mentally before the fight mixed with khabib being the better pressure and wrestling fighter.— Will Brooks (@ILLxWillBrooks) October 7, 2018
Even if Conor loses , getting up from the bottom of a Bear is very impressive lol— Nam Phan (@NamPhanMMA) October 7, 2018

That’s so low!! Jump the cage and punch the fighter that just fought from the back. This guy should be banned. Should never step on this country.— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) October 7, 2018

Worst attitude I have even seen in the sport by Khabib team mates jumping into the cage and attacking Connor. #UFC229— Raphael Assuncao (@RaphaAssuncao) October 7, 2018
