    Some of the footage in Khabibs back stage room before and after the McGregor fight.

    DC pumping Khabib up. Herb Dean laying out the rules. lol

    Khabib saying, "I Told you he's a Tap - Machine, he cannot fight 5 Rounds" when returning back, and apologizing to his coach for the after the fight chaos.

    So did Herb just not go over those rules with Conor or did Conor just pay him off?

    did you catch at the end of rd 3, Khabib says to Herb (in regards to all the fouls)... You said after 2 warnings you'll take a point. Anik starts to comment on the blatant cheating and Joe or Cruz cuts him off and they change the subject.

    Total horse crap all around. The entire commentary booth had several moments where the seemed confused on why Herb wouldn't address the fouls. The knee was where I drew the line.

    DC, Khabib, Luke and Cain. Crazy the amount of talent on that team.

    I love how close everyone at AKA is. I would love to train there one day. So much elite talent all crammed into one gym. No wonder they keep making champs.

    That was a hard knee straight to the face! No fucks given by Herb. And right after, him using the cage to neutralize the Kimura ignoring the warning Herb gave him.

    I was shocked that Khabib kept his cool between rounds. Javi and his corner had their work cut out for them that night.

    Cruz is such a pos. Didn't call out Conor for being a dirty mfker and claimed Conor is tiring out Khabib by taking a beating. And after the brawl talked so much shit about Khabib. Fucking pos. Rogan was actually quite neutral.

    Yeah I was surprised Joe called some of the fouls when they happened. Lost a lot of respect for Cruz there. Such a weird fight, Im just glad the better man won.

    He meant. Work, and after 12 hours of him being KO'd I'll stand you back up and make sure conor is fresh to go again.
