Kenny Florian Predicts Conor Mcgregor To Beat Khabib Nurmagomedov At Ufc 229January 31, 2019
Everett is right I think it was JJ Aldrich he gave you as an underdog pick for UFC 227 and that came in and today he likes juicy a Formiga against Sergio Pettis some pretty good betting value there all right as far as betting this fight between khabib nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor is concerned as I’ve said over the last.
Several weeks if you do like a Beebe I think you can wait I think you can get a better price than 165 170 whatever it is right now I think the McGregor money is just inevitable when.
Everybody gets to Las Vegas I.
Think you’re gonna see this thing move 20 or 30 cents pretty quickly over-under is set at two and a half rounds right now you can get even.
You are on the khabib side and you think he’s going to extend Conor maybe.
You see some value there Kenny when this fight was announced I said on the anok and podcast that I believed when push came to shove the striker Kenny Florian was gonna pick Conor McGregor.
To win this fight I’d imagine it’s not all that easy for you to make this pick I know we always ask you to do it on Monday but the world wants to know.
On which side do you fall up even or Mongo Matta for Conor McGregor and how do they get it done let’s break this down a little bit let’s talk about Habib nurmagomedov now when I look at their records and I see all the guys that they’ve faced there’s no doubt that Conor McGregor has beaten at the tougher roster there is just no debating that however Habib nurmagomedov has used.
A style that we saw in the late 90s and early 2000s with American wrestlers where they would take you down.
And ground and pound you into oblivion and there was nothing you could do to stop it you know exactly what they were gonna do and you.
Couldn’t stop it the fact that Habib nurmagomedov is able to do this in 2018 against every single person he’s faced all 26 of them is nothing short of remarkable however it is a limited style and there’s times where I see him on the feet where he’s very vulnerable.
To counter shots and other strikes he’s a little robotic in what he does when he’s loose and he’s flowy he’s fine it’s okay it’s not that bad but for me it’s his stance that worries me the most he stands very Square which makes a very large target for any striker the problem is he’s not just.
Going against a Streicher he’s going against Conor McGregor and he has the ability Conor to find that one inch on your on your chin that he can land that fist and you’re out Habib also uses that pressure style while Conor sometimes will use that against you however it will be difficult for.
Conor to win this fight if he if he does get backed up repeatedly in this fight the man who dominates the center of the Octagon will win this fight and we saw it in his fight against Chad Mendes.
Conor McGregor ran out to pursue Chad Mendes he did not allow him to kind of come back and decide to count a counter wrestle no.
Conor McGregor takes a proactive approach against most grapplers and I believe he will do this and must do this against Habib nurmagomedov I also think that Habib is going to deal with an emotion and an energy that he has never dealt with before is he scared of Conor.
