    Come on, perfect? Yeah, you can find Dagestani mma fighters with worse Russian than Khabib's but there is also people with better Russian. If you play video with Khabib talking to Russian speaker, I'm pretty sure this person will tell that 1) Khabib is from Caucasus and 2) good chance that Russian is not his first language.
    For example Khadis Ibragimov, Ruslan Magomedov (and not sure but Gasan Umalatov maybe too) speaks better Russian and with less accent.

    This. There are 100 vids of Khabib with his Dagestani crew and I have never heard Khabib speak Avar. I have even searched for vids of Khabib speaking Avar but found none. Closest I found were a few words here and there when he was in his village and speaking bro elders, etc.

    does his accent come from another language or is it just regional, plenty of people have regional accents althought it is their first language

    He's a native Russian speaker with a regional accent due probably to overuse Avar in daily life as a first language.
    The same happens in several countries like Italy and Spain where regional languages are still very diffused in families and communities.

    Sup.

    Khabib is fluent in Russian and perfectly intelligible but, like many people from the Caucasus region, he has a thick accent.

    The Russian way of pronouncing his surname is not how Khabib pronounces his name, it is very much an Avar pronunciation.

    They don't have to. English is easier for me, compared with Russian.
