    Not very smart of Khabib to leave AKA actually it's really dumb but we'll see maybe there's a lot of assumption and BS in this article

    Why would Khabib leave AKA who are probably the best camp in MMA atm.

    Khabib never spent most of his time aka, he split his time from home and aka. Im sure he will still train their to.

    Interesting not sure if it's the right move. AKA is a great camp that's obvious ,but hey maybe if John can help develop Khabibs striking the kid would be unstoppable.

    inb4 Conor and Khabib injure each others knees every camp.

    ferreal doe, Conor fortified with Khabibs wrestling? Khabib sharpened with Conor's striking? Their trashtalk elevated further?

    Theyre gonna rule 145 and 155 for a long time.

    A superteam needs a super trainer Kavanagh has produced McGregor but who else? Gunnar Nelson trained with Conor but I think only recently right it's not like he made Gunnar the fighter he is.
    And the rest of mcgregor's team look either ok or is Cathal Pendred.
    is that really enough to base a "superteam" on?

    And still spliting time up is dumb for Khabib and if he takes on some kind of trainer role at that new camp it will take away from his fighting career and preparation it's maybe cool for a life after MMA but it's not a fighter should do unless he has one foot out of the door already

    they're paying for a high level wrestler to get Conor's takedown defense up.

    also getting khabib on their side bc if conor moves up, khabib would most assuredly wrestlefuck him into oblivion

    Conor is gonna move up to 155 sooner or later. Don't think they'll fight each other if they are in the same camp.

    hJK just says that he will continue to coach the two irish fighters at sbg while they will both be under the "umbrella" of KHK. And hes doing a few seminars.

    Sounds more like its some sort of sugar daddy/sponsorship deal from Bahrain with fighters being part of that "group" but continuing in "affiliated" gyms

    So SBG would just be a gym used by KHK. doesnt stop sbg from carrying on and doesnt mean all sbg fighteres would be part of khk
