    "I think he's already a superstar right now. He's very good. He's undefeated, 20-0. He beat a lot of tough guys, Gastelum, Whittaker, Costa. He defend his title twice. He already big star.."

    Surprised Khabib is a fan of someone who got their titty out in public.

    Stating the obvious. Surely that will offend a small subset of vocal sherdoggers.

    After this fight Adesanya has raised his stock a lot. Like it or not, his emasculation of jacked Ricky Martin got everyone talking.

    Also he's a very active fighter. It's crazy to think that Adesanya has had more title fights than Khabib, and has the same number of title defence (#2), while only being in the UFC for just two and half years

    Haters can't say much here

    Everyone realizes it already, his talent is recognized

    he looked like a cobra against Costa

    in fact his nickname should be Black Cobra
    There needs to be someone in this promotion with a cobra nickname dammit

    As a Adesanya "hater", Khabib ain't wrong. Still won't make me a fan, though.

    Quite possibly the best wrestler the UFC has ever seen acknowledging the skills of possibly the best (but at least one of the best) striker(s) the UFC has ever seen.
