    A great boxing coach on youtube has made a vid saying 80% of the boxing moves he teaches would be useless in an MMA bout but 20% of what he teaches in his gym would help an MMA fighter, do fans know fighters from the UFC who are good examples of this theory being true or untrue? Which MMA fighter uses boxing moves effectively in their matches?

    Khabib certainly shocked Conor whenever both men were on their feet during their match, his movement was very pro like and his hand speed was good too.

    I think Khabibs understanding of boxing as a whole is more complete than Connors, and that Khabib is aware of his own limitations in stand up and picks his spots as best as he can.
