    I was just thinking about Khabib vs Mcgregor and thought to myself, man that fight really destroyed Conor's image and reputation and fans turned on him (also due to trash talking).

    Would you fight Khabib at his weight class (or he will bulk up to yours) if you get 1 year of training?
    The rules are
    -It will be the biggest fight in UFC history (2,500,000 household PPV buys) and the entire world will watch, including your whole country, all your fans, families and children etc.
    -You cannot give up straight away by tapping, or pretending to be out cold. You have to fight to the best of your ability.
    -Hospital bills will be covered for.

    For most people, I am sure it will result in humiliation of the highest order.
    Would you sacrifice your dignity and respect for millions of dollars?

    If not, how much money is worth worldwide humiliation?

    Yes, but on the condition that the presiding athletic commission can’t dock my pay for quitting.

    Me too. I’d want the ref to be sharpish though, like real quick. I’d go out an attempt something like a flying knee with no intention of being able to land it an that would be it, where ever I land I’d stay there screaming

    No. Mainly because due to the inflationary-deflationary cycle/mechanisms inherent in the global central banking system that 5 million dollars would be worthless in our lifetimes. Also, I value my health. Khabib might not be a big puncher, but it would interesting if you could really examine how much damage he did to the brains of guys like Michael Johnson and Barboza.

    I would pay 5 mill to fight him, with one hand tied behind my back. Blindfolded. Will still knock him out with ease.

    Id be afraid of any kind of kicks.....so Id rush into a clinch asap...since im supposed to be trying id do a very very low ankle type tackdown attempt since i couldnt be soccer kicked...hopefully khabib would put me in chokehold and to sleep.........if not and my pathetic takedown attempt to avoid kicks was blocked Id than inevitably be thrown...a arm lock is my preferred way to go but if i was being ground and pounded 3-4 timesthe referree would surely jump in to save my sorry arse. Id have tried my best though it wasnt good enough and while i was being choked id smile thinking of the $5,000,000.

    The worst case scenario is its kept at distance and im forced to box before the inevitable brutal kicks and punches leave me a helpless carcass...Id hate to go out like michael johnson or michael dokes v razor ruddock

    Yes. I was an elite wrestler and amateur boxer in college before MMA blew up. Never pursued it because the paydays didn't seem worth it. For that kind of money it would be worthwhile.

    I don’t think McGregor was humiliated against Khabib. He just lost to a better fighter that’s all.
