    It's already clear that Khabib has no interest in fighting again and has indeed retired as he said multiple times before. Now you see they are forcing him to talk about Conor whenever possible and using this kind of bs for promotion and what not. This was clearly Khabib just talking to Din Thomas off camera as a friend but got used for promo with Din Thomas giving a separate insight into what was said in separate part of video lmao wtf

    It's even more ridiculous when you realize the whole meeting with Khabib was scheduled by Dana to be during Conors fight week for obvious promotional reasons. The meeting happened and Khabib said no as confirmed, but Dana goes out to media and says if he sees something exciting he will come back, and obviously media running with it while Conor running his mouth at any chance to call him scared.

    Truth is Conor was an easy fight, just like other top contenders, and the only fight that makes sense for Khabib is a legacy fight with some one like GSP or to stay retired since he has accomplished everything. GSP fight was probably talked about again and shot down. All this behaviour from the UFC and the media, even when the man said he's retired, is appalling to say the least, it's like a flock of Conor nuthuggers all taking turns. Bad look for organization, Conor, and the media as a whole.

    Khabib took over the UFC and they realize it's too late now. Its pretty clear now that all the ass kissing Dana been doing recently is to get Khabib to fight Conor again, and mark my words, he will be the first to throw Khabib under the bus, saying he's scared and whatever he can once Conor is refused again as expected. Kind of a shame that it's fight week for Poirier, Conor, Chandler, and Hooker and the guy who's being talked about the most is Khabib, when he said he's retired officially.

    Just takes away from the fighters on the card and instead introduces and focuses on all this unnecessary bs.. If the UFC wants to cash in one last time with Khabib, try making GSP fight or just fuck it, it's a bad look otherwise.When asked about it, the bald goof can't even give a single proper reason for Khabib to fight Conor again, and it shows on his face.

    There's multiple pages of the two videos already. But I understand the UFC's position.

    Khabib seems to want to be goaded into coming back, asking friends and family if he should.

    Khabib knows exactly what he's doing, he isn't the victim of the media this time around. He's being vague on purpose

    Yup, he's playing the game. Why would he ask his coach and teammate if he want to come back? Why is he saying no fights planned instead of retired? He's playing the game. He's also a promoter so he understands where Dana is coming from and the tactics used. He's just using it right back. Idk if he's retired or not, or just using leverage to try to get a deal he wants for his EFC promotion.

    He was dominant but he didn't do nearly as much damage to Conor as those Diaz fights did.

    In 4 rounds Khabib landed less significant* strikes on Conor than Nate Diaz did in the first fight which was only 2 rounds.

    Jesus Christ I like Khabib but his fans are all over his nuts, you literally can’t even say anything that goes against Khabib.

    wahhh he retired leave him alone. He’s 29-0 in his prime no shit people think he should fight.

    And to make matters worse Sherdog is filled with fight "fans" who "only care about the fights", and not the fighters, their personalities, their livlihood, etc., It's all about the $$$. . . unfortunately.

    If the argument was to fight someone like Michael Chandler or Oliviera, if they ended up at top of division, it would be different. Khabib might have that little itch to cement his 155 GOAT status in that case but that's not what's happening here. The UFC doesn't give a shit about any other opponent Khabib could face, everything Khabib has said or done recently has been flipped by UFC and media to support a McGregor fight narrative, that's the annoying part to be honest.

    Think Khabib would consider coming back against Chandler and Oliveira slight possibility though unlikely but against Conor there's no chance, but everything the UFC has been doing recently is almost like begging Khabib to fight Conor now and looks bad tbh

    If khabib just wanted to fade away, he could easily fade away.

    Sounds like Khabib is fed up of the constant training and pressures tbh. From what Dana's said about Khabib wanting to see how this weekend goes and the rumour of GSP, sounds like he's just holding out for a big money fight to solidify his 30-0. Can't blame him. Just my opinion

    All this becomes a moot point anyway once Poirier smokes McGregor

    Khabib did land more strikes 104 for Khabib and 89 for Diaz. Totally different fights and Khabib controlled him so you gotta bring up damage and statistics and you can't even get that right, in fact you blatantly lie. Stupid post in so many ways.

    I’m not sure if you realize that reality shows and social media have very little to do with reality.

    reality is khabib just stArted fighting the top contenders in fights 27-29

    Dana's low IQ for thinking he can pressure khabib. Khabib doesn't give a fuck. He won't feel as if the world expects it from him. He's gonna spend the rest of his days in his little mountain village herding cattle surrounded by people who adore him.

    I should have specified, significant strikes. When we're talking about damage, the significant strikes are the ones that count the most. And Diaz landed more of those than Khabib did.
