    I find Khabib extremely boring, to be honest. He's like a poor man's Randy Couture. If Conor or Tony Ferguson aren't fighting Khabib, I have zero interest in his fights.

    I feel like all these "Khabib supporters" on the forums are actually just McGregor haters that want to see Conor lose, and will dump Khabib once he loses or has more boring fights.

    He has an appeal that you can't get from most other fighters.
    He wrestled bears, he has this psychotic aura about him.
    GSP was boring n sold a lot of PPV's too.

    Mostly Conor haters but there are those around here (not casuals) who like Khabib because they find some of the shit he says funny.

    I just think Khabib is going to beat the shit out of Conor. This isn't a popularity contest.

    Styles make fights.

    i like khabib, i like his backstory, i like that he is a man of little words and he seems like a cool funny dude. Connors antics are what make me not a fan of his. While i admit he is a talanted counter striker his made up persona and all his trash talk make me dislike him....I mean its not even funny or clever its like WWE gimmicky....

    Khabib's a very good fighter and is entertaining, as is Conor. His vicious beatdowns of people is what a dominant ground game should look like and he's finished 16/26 fights.

    Also how many people trash talk Dana in the middle of beating the shit out of someone? It shouldn't be too hard to figure out why he has fans. Missing weight and pulling out of fights is perhaps a reason to not like him though.

    How can you not like khabib's personality?; he's so straightforward along with his broken english that makes him likeable

    just check this clip:

    This is the best gimmick on the site imo

    That post combined with the fake AV just sets it over the top for me

    I like both of them.

    That's why I'm actually sad for Khabib that he will have to go home disappointed on October 6, but hoping he takes the defeat well.

    The broken English and the accent really don't make me more or less interested in him. I just don't like the fact that he pulls out of so many fights. I'm going to be shocked if he actually makes it to the Octagon. Hopefully Tony Ferguson is ready to go & make weight @ UFC 229.
