    The popular RT media outlet has recognized that without Conor , Khabib would've never reached the current Popularity he is currently enjoying in Russia

    Says Conor finished ahead of
    Putin in Google searches in Russia


    "Such a feat could only be possible with McGregor's fast-talking, cocksure walking attitude, acerbic trash talk, influence, pull, and general ability to spark intrigue and spew vitriol, which was accentuated and polarized by Khabib's calculated and reserved manner"

    What does any of that have to do with the epic ass whooping he received? If that really makes him or his fans feel better than fine, you can rest easy in that moral victory.

    Khabib was already popular and powerful with ties to dictators

    Actual title of the article

    Fighting the trend: Khabib & McGregor finish ahead of Putin in Russia's Google Search 2018 list

    [​IMG]


    So basically Khabib's already massive Russian fanbase was googling to see their hero destroy an Irish clown and this is preemptive damage control from OP.

    Bitterness in deep in the bum souls of Conor fans.

    Conor's current popularity would've never happened without the UFC protecting him from fighting wrestlers before winning a title.

    I tend to agree - but your need to immediately post scantly dressed woman shows lack of faith in the point you're trying to make, imo. (also not sure if she's up to sherdog standards tbh)

    We have to remember that, hate him or love him, Conor is/was special. There has NEVER been anyone(except maybe Brock and Rhonda)who reached the same level of stardom as Conor. To reach that level you need to be more then a great fighter, what you need is that X-Factor that makes people either love or hate you.
    With that said, I doubt Khabib will ever be more then a MMA star. He won't sell well, at least compared to Conor. Most casuals dislike the way he fight and find him boring and as a person he does not seem likeable.

    And the willingness for shameless self-promotion.
    Which Conor certainly had.

    His fans are TMZ, skinny Jean wearing pansies. We used to hang them up by their collars like raincoats back in the day.

    Until they turn 30, then they look like worn leather boots.

    Fighting Conor didn't do it. Opening a can of whoop ass did the trick. But yes, it involved Conor's ass.

    Ah I'm just messing. At the time if I remember correctly the Russian goverment said they knew nothing about her but she did plead guilty and was booted out.

    Conor didn't make Khabib popular it was Conor that made Khabib popular
