    2 nights ago there was a protest on the border of Dagestan and Chechnya where local Dagestanis tore down Chechen street signs which were thought to be on Dagestani land.

    There were videos circulating around social media of a bunch of young men hammering down the road signs and declaring "Kizlyar is not Chechnya". Local authorities have since clarified that the land the signs were on were in fact Chechen owned and have asked the Chechen government to have understanding towards the people involved.

    Head of Chechen state Ramzan Kadyrov responded saying: "“We want to live in friendship and brotherhood. That’s why I’m saying, dear Dagestanis, don’t give in to provocation". He also added for those who were posting negative comments: "Watch your tongue and your fingers or we’ll break your fingers and rip your tongues out".

    Khabib posted a picture of himself on IG with a caption addressing the conflict. In short, he sees fault on both sides and wishes Chechens and Dagestanis could live together as brothers. He alluded to the conflict being fueled by outside influence. Unfortunately this didn't sit well with any of his Dagestani followers who called him a traitor and a Chechen puppet, he's since disabled the comments on that post.

    A lot of people turned on him when he spoke out against the "sexual" play and when his family accepted cars and awards from Ramzan Kadyrov. It seems even his own people don't understand their association.

    What do you all make of this? I think Khabib's time as a fighter star is limited. I feel like he'll retire within these next 2-3 years at most. I don't blame him, it must be difficult being from not only such a problematic region but the media in that country as a whole is notoriously unforgiving. He's looked drained and stressed since beating McGooGoo, he's always been a simple family guy who doesn't want the burden of attention and fame. Hopefully he'll just pave the way for other Russian stars to follow in his footsteps and make it big over here too.

    Afaik stalin gave a bunch of chechen lands to dagestanis when he mass deported the former and it seems some chechens tryna take it back. Artur beterbiev for example was born in dagestan but identifies as chechen because where he is from was originally part of chechnya.

    I dont see this having any impact on khabobs career or reputation. Most people seem to be supportive of his stance

    So they are arguing with Khabib about not respecting borders and boundaries???

    That's rich because Khabib jumped the UFC boundaries and attacked people in the crowd.

    Sounds like it's just a bunch of trolls, I've seen the comments before and most of them were supportive of Khabib.

    Good. I don't want any harm done to Khabib, but it would be great to see him be forced to admit he comes from a land of backward savages.

    looks like trolls to me and not even good ones. There's similar stupid comments on just about any important fighter's social media

    Dagestan isn't known for its gentlemen and scholars. Khabib may as well naturalize to the US.

    Dunno, maybe. But don't you think there's at least a little bit of valid criticism in those comments?

    Actually since beating Conor he’s looked fat and happy. I’m rooting for khabib but i wouldn’t be shocked if he missed weight and someone has to step up or canceled event

    Are there any people on this planet that have gotten over their hate towards Creed?

    Pay me a teacher's salary or use the internet yourself, it's easy enough and free.

    As far as I know, Chechens and Dagestanis consider themselves brothers and damn near the same people. The border tensions are just between a few idiots as always, and in the big picture those two peoples consider each other brothers.
