Khabib Nurmagomedo Vs Conor McGregor Betting Guide

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor Betting Tips

Many UFC tipsters think that the McGregor Vs Khabib fight will end early either way, depending on if it stays standing or goes to the ground. However, there could be some cagey early exchanges and a real battle of the wills to stay in the fight. So it could rumble on to Round 3 before someone finds the tellings blows…

  • Method of Victory – Conor McGregor to win by KO/TKO/Disqualification at 2/1 at William Hill
  • When Will The Fight End? – Either fighter in Round 3 at 6/1 with Betway

If McGregor can use his footwork to stay out of trouble from Khabib’s early pressure, he is likely to sting, hurt and possibly even finish the Russian fighter early, but certainly slow him down.

If he can also nullify the Khabib takedown threat and be patient, those telling shots will come. Even if McGregor is taken down early, he has the chin, resilience and ground game to stay in the fight until the round ends and they’re put standing again. McGregor can use his striking to get this done inside the distance.
