    Just saw this on my YouTube, it says that GOATBib will be joining GOATDC and RC on the DC & RC show starting in 10 mins.

    Hopefully he gives some insight into Islam's training camp and what to expect this Saturday



    Cliffs:

    - Khabib is in Abu Dhabi to support Khabib, Zubaira and Tagir
    - Islam's fight is most important because if he wins it puts him on a 9 fight win streak and in line for a title shot
    - finds cornering his teammates emotionally harder than fighting, because the fight isn't in his hands but still impacts him a lot
    - doesn't like media giving him credit as "Coach of the Year", says Javier Mendez deserves this title and that he needs 30 years of experience before he can be considered like Javier
    - from 2010 to 2020 inclusive, Javier has always has at least 1 UFC champ
    - Islam needs a finish this weekend, then to call out for a TS next, and in 2022 we are going to take the belt back to AKA
    - Islam is the real deal, one of the best in the world and is one of the top 10 pound for pound fighters today.
    - khabib trains daily with monsters but doesn't spar anymore to keep his brain healthy for business purposes (jokes that he doesn't want to be like DC when he's 40 years old lol)
    - they joke around that DC is the Paulo Costa of AKA for always being late..Khabib feels bad like that's too much of a low blow and goes no no, I did not say this (only RC did)...but Khabib still bugs DC for being undisciplined and late.

    Leaving this comment here. I'll edit the cliffs in or delete it if I lose my internet connection.

    Currently watching it live...

    CLIFFS

    Coach Khabib:
    - Khabib is currently in Abu Dhabi preparing Islam, Taghir & Zhubaira for 267
    - Thinks Islam should fight for title in 2022 if he beats Hooker, especially if he wins by finish
    - Being coach is harder cause he can't do anything other than giving advice (much more emotional coaching than fighting)
    - Doesn't like being called coach of the year, acknowledges that Javier Mendes is the real coach of AKA with accolades
    - Thinks Mendes should be coach of the year

    About Islam:
    - Islam is getting old and thinks he's relatively behind compared to Khabib at the point in his career
    - When Khabib was Islam's age, he already won and defended the lightweight title
    - Islam is the real deal and says is top 10 P4P
    - DC & Khabib were the ones pushing Islam to call out opponents since Islam is more timid
    - Khabib told DC after beating Healy "give me title shot", a contrast to the more mild Islam
    - Training with Islam since 2000, a testament that Khabib knows Islam's capability better than any other

    Life since retirement:
    - Last 30 years was eat, train, sleep
    - Still trains everyday but does not spar, considers himself a business guy
    - Doesn't want to absorb strikes to the head so he doesn't end up like DC (funny roast)
    - RC & Khabib spent a good 6 minutes roasting DC in goodhearted nature

    Khabib leaves about 20 minutes into the show

    DC's opinions about Islam vs Hooker:
    - Striking was a learning curve for Khabib when he was active
    - Unlike Khabib, Islam had striking years ago
    - Despite all this, not a smart idea for Islam to strike with Hooker
    - Hooker has improved in striking AND wrestling

    Well it's definitely not a stretch. IMO he would beat either Oliveria or Poirier more times than not, and those guys are fighting for the title in one of, if not the most stacked division.

    I think sometime next year Islam will be in the top 10 P4P, if not top 5.

    The haters can hate him, but Islam's skills are legit. Even though he has had a loss (very early and bad stoppage imo), he is noted to barely be struck in fights.
