Artem Lobov: \u201cKhabib Has No Striking At All, Conor Could Also Easily Out-Grapple Him\u201d Many fighters supported the fact that Conor McGregor cannot outwrestle Khabib Nurmagomedov. Jon Jones was one of them. Al Iaquinta is unsure of the outcome. Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov stated no wrestling coach in the world could prepare Conor for Khabib.\u00a0Coach Firas Zahabi stated he doesn't believe the match will go to the championship rounds due to differences in their fighting styles. Yet, Artem Lobov has a completely different view. Conor\u2019s teammate doesn\u2019t even see the UFC 229 main event as the collision of striker versus grappler. He believes Khabib\u2019s striking is very bad. Artem Lobov also thinks Conor McGregor has chances to out-grapple Dagestani fighter! (via bloodyelbow.com) \u201cWhen you say it like that, it\u2019s as if Conor doesn\u2019t have wrestling and grappling, and Khabib doesn\u2019t have any striking,\u201d Lobov told The Mac Life. \u201cIt is true that Khabib doesn\u2019t really have any striking, but it\u2019s certainly not true that Conor\u2019s grappling or wrestling is not on that level. \u201cHe can easily out-grapple Khabib, and in the wrestling as well. Of course this is Khabib\u2019s game, so we\u2019re not stupid. We\u2019re not gonna fall into his hands right away, but make no mistake about it, we\u2019re gonna be ready everywhere.\u201d Artem Lobov believes Conor will end the fight quickly and regain his Lightweight belt. He hopes for a knockout in the first round. Lobov also looked back at Khabib\u2019s fights versus Michael Johnson at UFC 205 and Al Iaquinta at UFC 223. \u201cI see Conor stopping him in Round 1. I just don\u2019t see Khabib being able to do anything,\u201d he said. \u201cLook at some of his other fights he\u2019s been in. The Iaquinta fight, when he was connecting, Khabib did not like it at all. He was going back, leaning back, turning away, closing his eyes. \u201cThe same against Michael Johnson. When Michael Johnson connected, Khabib couldn\u2019t take him down anymore. The only reason they ended up on the floor was because Michael Johnson decided to wrap up the guillotine and bring him down himself \u2014 which was the biggest mistake of his life. I\u2019m sure he still regrets that. Either than that, he had stuffed Khabib\u2019s takedowns already,\u201d he continued. \u201cSo I see all that, I see Conor in training. I see his timing, I know his wrestling, how good his grappling as well. I just don\u2019t see it any other way. First round stoppage for Conor McGregor.\u201d What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Artem Lobov is making a mistake? We will see on the October 6th when two superstars collide!
