    Cmon shertard, not only are all sherbros minimum 6’2” (and jacked), wouldn’t tap to any possible sub, but they also speak half a dozen languages. As a blue belt you know better.

    He's really really really popular.

    Top 2 after Mohamed Salah.

    Arab world doesn't have lot of champions, and sport is super popular there.
    The whiskey stuff (thanks Conrad) helped a lot in Saudi Arabia / Qatar etc ...
    The people has been so bullied there geopolitically, that, a guy who stand up and fight back is something who makes him really popular.

    No he's super popular. I'm not living in the middle East right now, but my FB/insta accounts are going crazy about him.

    He learned Arabic to read the Qur'an. He speaks Russian, Arabic, English, Turkish?, and a bit of Spanish apparently.

    Well he has blown up after the Conor fight with almost every famous Arabic page showing how a devout Muslim destroyed an alcoholic Islamophobic white guy.

    Especially if you finish the meal with some Tiramisu.
