    Timestamped.

    Basically Khabib is saying people are calling him coach of the year cause he has a name and is famous as a fighter. However he disagress with the media and fans and says he would need decades to even touch Javier as a coach. Javier Mendez is the one who coaches and should be awarded that title. Khabib is doing his job helping and cornering.

    Islam is doing great, and Usman Nurmagomedov is doing well in Bellator too. Interested to see what their ceiling is.
    Speaking of Bellator, both these guys won belts this year:

    Seems like they come from a solid camp.

    He's just humble bragging s/ ;)

    But yeah that's good on him for shouting out Mendez. Khabib is very consistent with praising his coaches and training partners at AKA, especially DC.

    I'd say Whitman. Can't argue with AKA success but that always seemed like a gym filled with fighters who coach each other and specialist grapplers implementing obvious plans.

    Coaches don't get a lot of recognition nowadays.

    Who are the nominees? Is it based on UFC only? Or is it the entire MMA scene? I gotta say Rose and Usman coach did a pretty amazing job. 3 knockouts . 2 belts . That is hard to compete with. I have not really seen much of Javiar since Khabib retired. But I don't really pay attention to many coaches. Only coaches I remember are the terrible ones like Longo and Serra, Edmund and Irish Edmund.. haha. I guess that's a good sign. If we can't remember em, they are good coaches.

    Javiar Mendez does have a pretty good no fuck around career resume. I got Trevor Whitman winning though if its solely based off UFC, Belts, Finishes and meaningful wins in 2021 only. That Thug Rose kick was epic and Usman Rang Masvidal's clock with pure perfection. Year is not done yet either . Both those champs fight before the end of the year. If they win its really no contest on who the best coach was in 2021.

    Khabib said he was the first to show up at the gym and the last to leave, never late one time. Then he said Daniel was always last to show up, but would be the first to leave. The way Khabib set the joke up was hysterical.

    For coach of the year maybe Khabib. I'm not sure Khabib or Javier deserve credit though. This guy is/was the best coach.......

    Khabib has a beard.
    People with beards are humble and tell the truth.
