MMA cornering is so far behind boxing it is crazy. Some off the highest level fighters in the world and you hear their corners giving absolutely no technical advice at all it’s shocking.

On the first takedown attempt by Khabib, they yelled "elbows", Poirier looked back as if to clarify and boom, Khabib took him down. Downhill from there.

I caught that too. Although I thought it was: "I can't fucking get him off me." :)

Did they not bring in wrestlers for his camp? Is Khabib the best wrestler on the planet? I’d assume no - so it starts earlier than the fight. 

He needed to be beat up wrestling for 5 months before this fight, every day, by better wrestlers - and learning how to counter (or try to counter) everything Khabib did. Then in the corner they should have been reinforcing all of what he had been doing in drills in camp, for months.

Terrible cornering esp for a championship.

Agreed. I love my coach to death, but lately he's been putting himself on the spot when coaching solo, most recently at a PFL event. The commentators caught on quickly. They said something along the lines of "Umm... So what exactly is _________'s corner saying? He keeps telling ________ the obvious but not giving him any actual advice".

 

And then Yves Edwards said "Yeah, this is really bad from the corner". 

This is what coach kept telling our guy "You gotta get up bro. You can't stay there bro, you gotta get up" as our guy was getting mauled with 30 seconds left after losing all rounds. And in between rounds all he kept saying was "You can't let him take you down". He's a great trainer, but it seems like he always freezes in fights when it's just him cornering without the wrestling and or boxing coach.

 

To your point, our boxing trainer is a fucking genius. He even figures out  kickboxers and MT fighters during fights. When he and our head coach corner together it's a different ball game.

Why do people think you can train a dicipline for a couple of months and beat someone who has been training their whole life.

 

Not to mention Khabib is naturally bigger and has a lifetime worth's of elite grappling strength.

Additionally Khabib very well might be the best in the world at using his upper and lower body at the same time in grappling situations.

To be fair, the only thing Dustin could have done to win the fight IMO would be to push forward with constant pressure and try to keep Khabib on the backfoot so he can't shoot.

^^This in between Rounds 2 and 3

 

Before that, in between rounds 1 and 2: "Not a lot of space."

Me as well. I sometimes wonder if they get excited or nervous about being watched by millions. 

   I love listening to Greg Jackson corner.

He gets his guy to calm down,  slow his heartrate,  and recover as much as possible. 

He then very calmly gives 1 or 2 instructions, a little positive reinforcement, a little water and they are ready for the next round.
