Khabib Nurmagomedov Makes His Predictions For UFC 197

Khabib Nurmagomedov is giving his predictions for UFC 197, and despite his prior comments on McGregor he believes he will prevail at UFC 197.

Khabib, during an appearance on The MMA Hour spoke to Ariel Helwani, went into detail about his predictions for the outcome of UFC 197. Heres what he had to say:

“In my opinion, in the lightweight division, Conor McGregor is the strongest guy there because he now doesn’t need to cut much weight, I think his takedown defence is good and in my opinion, he has more punching power and kicking power. Rafael Dos Anjos is one very tough guy and if the fight goes to five rounds, my opinion is that Rafael Dos Anjos will win. But first or second round, I think Conor will win. My prediction, I think Conor will beat him by knock out.
