I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Healy didn't have 20 pounds on Khabib.

Juding it on a single performance, yes. Carmont's ire has more to do with reputation than anything he specifically did vs Costa. Remember though that Carmont is just generally dislikes due to the "close" decisions he's picked up and his general boring style.

I agree that people saw Carmont in a poor light because he got two fairly questionable decisions (the Lawlor fight was close and it was on both fighters for being a slow fight, the Larkin fight was close to an out and out robbery), but usually one would expect adults to not let that completely impact the way they see fights to the point where their reactions to essentially the same thing are at two completely different ends of the spectrum. Perhaps I expect too much out of Sherdog.

It adds momentum to the slam and you can reposition them near your corner and away from theirs.
