INTANGIBLES: Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov (Final Analysis)

Chael Sonnen breaks down Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. As a fight analyst, he brings his unique perspective on the intangibles that play into this epic battle. In Chael’s mind, it’s not as simple as most analysts make it out to be.


  1. I think it’ll go to decision and whoever wins the 3rd round or gets a 10-8 wins. Conor will won the first two rounds and Khabib the last two. Round 3 is the crucial round

  2. Neither Francis or Till has as good of boxing as Conor. He sets things up differently from them, he moves different, gets to different angles.

  3. I think you miss the point that Conor is most dangerous when he is dictating the fight and attacking. However, he simply cannot afford to do that against Khabib in fear of the takedown. This is the turning point right here all heavily in Khabib's favor.
