Eddie Alvarez recently gave his opinions about a potential fight between Conor Mcgregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Khabib won the vacant UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 223 at Brooklyn, New York, which was an event plagued by controversy. The biggest of which was Conor Mcgregor attacking Khabib’s bus at the media day which resulted in three fights being cancelled, but has now set up a huge rivalry and the potential for a grudge match, possibly in Russia.

“I think Conor went there for a fight to cause up some drama,” Alvarez said.”I think it went further than what he thought it would. He threw the dolly and then he busted the window and hurt people. I think he was ready to build up the biggest fight in UFC history and he went there with that intention but it went too far and even he didn’t expect it to go that far.”

Conor’s best chance is a knockout

The former UFC Lightweight champion believes that if Khabib has not corrected his faults in the striking department, he is in danger of getting knocked out by Conor’s accurate left hand strike.

“Styles make match-ups. I think if Khabib does not correct the mistake of sitting back with his chin back and going to the side, Conor’s going to put his lights out with that left hand pretty bad, pretty quickly,” Alvarez explained. “So he needs to correct that mistake and he needs to learn to relax in the pocket and know that he’s safe. Until he does that, he’s always in danger of getting beat by a guy with knockout power like Conor McGregor.”

Gives the edge to Khabib

Even though Conor has a laser left hand which has resulted in many knockouts, Eddie predicts that Khabib will dominate the fight if he gets Conor to the ground.

“But Conor McGregor on his back, I don’t feel like he has a strong spirit for fighting on the ground. Some guys have a real strong spirit, they can stand up all day for five, ten rounds as long as they’re standing up but when it goes to the ground their spirit weakens.”

“I don’t think Conor has a strong enough spirit to be able to withstand Khabib’s ground attack over and over. So I’d have to give the edge to Khabib because I feel like there will be takedowns and Conor will not get up and I don’t know if he has the spirit to stay in the fight with a ground fight where Khabib is controlling fifteen to twenty minutes of a twenty-five minute fight. I’d have to give the edge to Khabib,” Alvarez added.
