      @Attie Pollard when talking about fighting why do you have a problem with his personality?and anyway when conor was talking about his religion and his father his family and his country khabib didn't even say a word and when the rivalry is public why did conor made it personal? what does conor have anything to do with his personal matters?and keep that in mind not all times conor trash talks work and also with everyone.so now khabib is in conor's head forever living rent free. plz brother accept that conor lost this is respect sports not disrespecting sports and we also praise conor because he was the only one who broke kahbib's no rounds lost streak.

      @Thomas Shelby despite khabib being undefeated is he still that loved & admire from the mixed martial arts community like a GSP? Nope. Why you think no one in the states wanted to market him for their products? Khabib is a good wrestler but at the same time the man has a horrible personality.

      @Juan Pablo Ortega Full of strikers, not really. Oliveira, Makhachev, Dariush... these guys have very good wrestling, grappling, BJJ. And, Gillespie and Tsarukyan are the guys with very good wrestling who will also get at the top at some point (and I think it will be very soon). Yes, Colby could get that belt, but I am not sure it will be easy work.

      Yes, but Oliveira has a chance. Oliveira has better striking than Khabib and is a real threat on the ground. Khabib never faced someone with good grappling/wrestling (Gaethje doesn’t count). If Dustin and RDA could get Khabib in tight chokes, Oliveira definitely could. His only downfall is his durability and crumbling to pressure.
