    According to a recent interview with riakchr.ru, Khabib was initially offered a fight at the landmark UFC 200 show in Las Vegas but rejected the offer when he realized it conflicts with Ramadan and the Eid holiday that followed.

    "I could not take part in the anniversary tournament. When the UFC asked me, I realized it was that June UFC 200 is between Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. We will probably watch it on TV."

    On switching the television on, he injures himself and is out until UFC: Halal Edition.

    Does that mean Ariel Helwani can't work at UFC 200?

    Muslims take religion more serious than west's cafeteria Christians. I can respect that but he's losing out on a huge opportunity.

    I can understand. It always amazed me that Hakeem Olajuwon would play in the nba during Ramadan. I can't imagine a full Mma fight during then. Just regular training classes are a bear during that time

    I can respect that the same way I can respect Christians and Jews observing their religious holiday. Pastafarians, on the other hand, get no respect from me. My italian side makes it impossible for me to like them.

    lol this guy is fucking ridiculous. Maybe in 2021 when the moon is just right, when his body has fully healed and all religious holidays have been observed MAYBE he'll be back in the octagon.

    GTFO

    Why would they want a guy who hasn't finished a fight in years on their biggest card anyway? He should have sinned and just went to Mecca afterwards for penance.
