    Ask Khabib
    So recently there was a post Khabib making 1 million dollars for appearing on Ruiz vs Joshua 2. There were many doubters. I was involved in a few discussions about that and said to the doubters that they underestimate the generosity of Middle Eastern monarchs and dictators. Here's a video of Baldfather himself talking about it.

    So that should answer the question why Khabib doesn't need a Conor rematch.

    Khabib only got a pitiful 1 million? Our GOAT deserved far more than that for showing his face.

    Great cash for getting tickets for you and your crew and seeing a good fight.
    That's what UFC 245 main event guys made together :p

    No doubt an Middle Eastern monarch/dictator could pay the fee. That's the equivalent of change in the back of the couch for some of them but I still don't buy it tbh.

    He probably is, I'm more worried about Cerrone. He's probably on that 100k to show 100k to win deal.

    considering some people pay $10,000 for some of those floor seats I’d say even getting them for free is pretty sick

    Even the boxing spectators get paid more than the UFC fighters.

    Yes, but even I have to hold my hands up and say it's because of the Conor fight.
    That win made him a superstar.

    Khabib used and abused him, then he threw him away like used condom. Now he doesn't need him anymore.

    That's Kevin Iole for you. Might as well be part of the UFC marketing team.

    You can get celebs to turn up to your 16th birthday party and walk around for 100-250k. Don't think it's much of a stretch to think Khabib got 4-10x that.

    Ooft just checked and Rihanna got paid $8 million to turn up and switch on some Christmas lights display.

    I read one of his articles recently. It was pretty bad -- you could tell it was done by someone that has no authority on combat sports. He's a successful dude but I've never been a fan of his work.

    Khabib fans:
    "You guys are pathetic, all you people care is how much money Conor makes. Do you even care about fighting?"

    Also Khabib fans:
    *make every possible thread about how much khabib makes*

    So Dana doesn't confirm that Khabib was paid $1 mill to be there.
    I call BS on it anyway.
