    Wonder why he wasn't nice to Conman MookGregor

    How skill full, I knew he wouldn't give up to an arm bar, so I choked him with my legs instead

    khabib felt so bad about smeshing Michael Johnson that he was pleading with him to give up while smeshing him up..the inner conflict was so deep

    McBus McConor was not worthy of any sympathy from The Eagle. If it was outside the cage, and both were not involved with professional MMA, McConor would have been McKilled for McReal.

    Because Khabib broke him mentally October 6 and “made him humble.”

    Promises made, promises kept son

    I felt like DC said the Justin Gaethje story first, they are team mates so maybe Khabib did tell him that but also I think it's a noble way for retirement and Khabib might even be parroting the story at this point. I'm not saying he isn't a nice guy but this reads like a PR campaign.

    And this^ . He is not the Dagestani Wrestling Jesus. He can be a nice guy but he was a professional fighter trying to keep his perfect record intact and build a legacy. I'll never forget Khabib that's for sure.

    Khabib saw Conor’s father Dana White in the first row and decided to show him mercy and not break his jaw in half

    I would have said the same thing if it wasn't a 1:40 second video. It is literally already cropped to the relevant parts.

    Cliffs: He was careful to submit them in a way that wouldn't result in career threatening injuries, especially with Gaethje's parents sitting front row.

    I have to admit I doubted Khabib when he was coming up. But he proved me wrong and retired undefeated as one of the best ever. Anyone trying to disrespect him is just a clown
