    So Khabib posted this:



    He said in ufc 223's post fight conference that he favors a return at MSG in in November so he stays consistent

    He also gives credit to all of the LW top five as "goos fighters" and says he's ready to defens against any of them without chosing

    Despite that some people accuse him of ducking which i really can't understand. Especially when a good portion of the same people praised conor for never defending a belt and confiscating the LW title two tears without defense

    What's the logic behind this? A guy who gives a precise timeframe for his return and is ready to fight any of the top 5 is what i expect from a champion in my book. But if you have an explanation go on

    Keep living in a fabricated fantasy world. I can see why you're a conor fan.

    Truth is Khabib fought, became champ, and plans publicly his next title defense, while conor would rather be tortured medieval style than be in a closed cage with him and never ever said the words "defend my title" like it would kill him

    It's refreshing to see a champion that is willing to fight anyone rather than wait for a "money" fight.

    I just wish we could see him back in the cage sooner.

    Conor is a NUT JOB.... And .............even still Khabib is not afraid. I repeat ..CONOR IS A NUT CASE AND EVERYONE SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS OF HIS BEHAVIOR... same for JJones....JJones is just Smoother and More politically Correct and has better handlers...

    Taking 8 months off between title defenses of a belt he won by not even finishing the #11 ranked fighter?

    Biggest paper champion in the UFC.

    Remind me why he needs to take 6 whole months off after just winning the title?

    He had a fight where he took zero damage, yet needs 6 months off?

    Khabib, please don't turn into one of those champions.

    Khabib openly wants to defend against the top 5, conor never did and never will

    typical. "Champ" taking a long time off after winning belt. We'll be lucky to see him fight again this year.

    Meanwhile Tyrun has a boo boo on his shoulder. Mighty Mouse is refusing to fight a challenger. GSP has "colitis"

    the irony when khabib misses weight or goes on a injury holiday before the fight and holds the no.11 12hr notice belt ransom for 2 years

    Yes, can’t wait to see Khabib fight someone in the Top 5.
    It’s about time.

    Why exactly do you think 8 months is a super long time? Go look at the other champions and you won't find much better. Also in light of what the previous LW champion did 8 months to fight the most deserving contender is night and day.

    Your bias shows in calling him a paper champion. The only other guy who could be more deserving is Tony and Tony had to back out of the title fight because he tripped on a wire. Tony lost his spot due to chance and Khabib is clearly the best LW we have right now. He is a real champion waiting to further legitimize his belt by beating the best guys.
