    Mendez told SunSport: "I gather Khabib likes Justin a lot because he finished him sooner than he would've with most people.

    "He likes to punish people a bit, ground and pound them.

    "But Justin's parents were there and he knew Justin wouldn't tap and he didn't want to break his arm in front of his parents.

    "Khabib purposely let Conor go longer, he purposely stood with him, he wanted to punish him.


    "Just because Conor went four rounds it doesn't mean Khabib had a tougher time trying to finish him - Khabib wanted to punish Conor, he didn't want to do that with Justin."

    Nah. Conor is his biggest threat. Khabib didn't knock him down. Conor was just doing business and didn't train hard. He was partying far too much. Khabib didn't do any second round damage or anything.

    No, he didn't lol. He wanted to finish him as soon as possible.

    Jav shouldn't speak for Khabib.

    Khabib just wanted to show how defenseless Conor actually is when he's looking at a man who wrestled bears as a child.

    khabib carries conor, khabib didn’t go for the arm bar because he didn’t want to break justin’s arm in front of his parents, khabib had the mumps, khabib had a broken foot.... the list goes on in the last 4 days

    lol you all talk about round 3 like it was a big round for Conor or like he looked good lmfao. He barely won that round by landing like 3 good punches that made Khabib laugh. Khabib took that round off to rest, it's the only reason Conor even won that round. He got mauled again the next round like he was the whole fight.

    It's crap like this that makes Khabib fans insufferable. Trying to make him sound like this noble fighter that hates inflicting pain and all this other nonsense.

    Not hard to believe. He didn't want to win, he wanted to punish Connor. To torture Connor and rearrange his face. He said this over and over in the build-up to the fight.

    If he had any respect for Connor it would've been over by submission in the second round. You can tell Khabib really enjoys smeshing loud mouth guys out there. Cutting weight is the real fight for him, the actual fight is his damn reward.

    Khabib slapped Conor around during that round and Mcgrefor didn't do anything besides some teep kicks. Before the ufc manipulated that round striking numbers were actually in khabibs favour, it didn't even make much sense to give it to Conor.

    Khabib was playing with Conor to make him look bad. He wanted to finish Justin quickly to not many a spectacle out of it.

    Khabib was clearly trying to punish him and not just compete against him
