    I feel Justin boxed better v Fergie than Conor would have, his punch technique was like a top boxers, which of these top fighters would do better v Khabib?

    Obviously Conor is a much easier fight for Khabib than Gaethje. Conor has NOTHING for Khabib other than to completely go for it in the first minute with strikes and HOPE that he catches Khabib flush and puts him out. Hard thing to do when Khabib will have ZERO interest in striking with him early in the first but 100 % looking to get Conor on the ground and drain his energy/gas tank. So a very very very small chance to win for Conor.

    Justin has a better chance, he is younger, hungrier, and has the stamina to last 5 rounds.

    I expect Khabib to beat Justin but Justin has a punchers chance.

    Obviously Gatehje.

    He's already beaten Connor.

    I'd rather see Gaethje, Ferguson and Lee next for him tbh.

    Conor ‘it’s just business’ McTapout weight management P4P was badly beaten in every way including standup by Khabib. He got his heart and soul taken and even got beaten up by one of Khabib’s cornermen... is this a serious question?

    which is better as in easier?

    well Conor is easer if that's what you mean. he knows what to expect and how to defeat him, Justin is a bit more of a question mark.
