    TL;DR Cliffs - you are a pathetic bandwagon Khabib fan only because you are a Conor hater.

    What make you a Khabib fan? Genuinely curious. In sports most people cheer for someone who is like them in some way, who is from their area, or jumps on the winning bandwagon for a really good team / person.
    Let's break these down...
    Someone who is "like" me - this could be same country (rabid brazil fans), same city (liverpool fans - you'll never walk alone) same background (grew up poor, overcame odds), same race (sad, but true. See racist Eurotrash soccer fans). I don't see many sherdoggers who can identify with Khabib in this fashion. He is muslim, anti-women, a RUSSIAN (aka the bad guys!!) national, speaks broken english, isn't especially witty or funny, doesn't drink, smoke, do drugs, listen to rap, etc. Besides being a manlet at 5'10" you probably have nothing in common with him.
    2. Bandwagon. People like to associate with winning teams as it makes them feel good to be on the winning side. Regardless if you stuck with that team or individual through thick and thin, if some team is winning you will see losers buy their hat, t-shirt, post about how much they wish to have the athletes balls on their chin, etc. I assume this is most butthole greaser Khabib fans. Khabib is UNDEFEATED and easy to nut swing for what you perceive to be the easy take down and lay and pray win.

    So... Why are YOU a Khabib fan?

    This. He's a ridiculously good fighter. Thats all there is to it for me. With that said, I'm a fan of Conor the fighter. He's not some scrub. He's one of the best fighters at 155 lbs n lower in the world.

    I'd rather root for Khabib though, I personally can't stand Conor's nonsense but at the end of the day, I don't give a fuck. None of them fuckers paying my bills.

    Not a fan of wrasslin', so I don't particularly like his fights.
    But on the other hand observing a Conor fangirl complete meltdown is a thing of beauty.
    So i'm kinda split on this fight.

    I like him because he doesn't smoke, drink and listen shitty rap music and because I love grappling. Russians are the bad guys only if you are dumb enough to believe in everything you see on social media.

    Yes, every one of his UFC fights. I find him boring AF. Cool hat and that's about it.

    I trained sambo and Kebab does perfect sambo stuff, which is pleasant for me to watch.

    There are a lot of things that annoy me like the pull outs and missing weight but he's a very good grappler and can be fun to watch sometimes. I'd like to see him KO'd by Conor though.

    The way he controls people and the speed in which he does so doesn't interest you? How about the MJ fight when he pinned MJ's arm and proceeded to just brutalize him from top? That shit freaked me out

    I became a fan before he joined the UFC. His throws, dominance and ability to turn any disadvantage around through transitions was amazing. He's still true to form.
     
  18. What an embarrassing post.

    Sounds like you're describing psychiatric patients/Conor fans.

    Fun aggressive grappler. If you don't like Khabib's style then you should watch boxing instead.
