Since Khabib’s win at UFC 223 cementing him as the undisputed lightweight champion of the UFC, no fight has us more excited than the impending combat between him and Conor McGregor. However, the wait until we may get a glimpse of the two standing in opposite corners might be quite long.
Thankfully, we can get a look at what might happen if we pit the two against each other in EA’s most recent instalment in their UFC series UFC 3. Suffice it to say, it does not disappoint.
The Notorious vs. The Eagle
The match starts of as explosive as you’d expect, with Conor drawing blood early in the first round after a quick combination and some dominating groundwork. The second round we see a fire lit inside The Eagle, shooting on Conor, establishing some swift takedowns and hitting him with some ground and pound.
Things don’t stay that way for Khabib, as Conor dispatches him with an effective combination late in the third round. Will we see Khabib suffer the same fate when they finally fight, or will he silence all the naysayers and prove once and for all he’s the true champion of the lightweight division?
