    I hate how all fighter have to stop Normal training to cut weight. I feel bad for them, but maybe it serves them since they are so focus on weight cut they aren’t psyching themselves out over the fight

    The interviewer is like "... make jokes and talk trash to people ? " I am just wondering why a famous and hardworking person, achieving something, being professional, shall spread "trash" ... Why there is such a perspective in the West ? Why is it considered to be cool ? May be I missunderand something, but Connor for instance, being a good fighter , is just a clown to me. In my opinion, "talking trash" just shadows one's talent or professionally. But well, it's a perspective thing I guess

    His English is better than khabibs was where is dc using his accent. These guys are like primitive amish. Have that medieval life style kill or be killed still. He will be champion because he has everything to gain and will lose his status in his community if he loses

    I like him but i wish he spoke English. However, something tells me even if he spoke English he would still be displaying the same energy. I just think he is naturally a laid back low key kind of guy. I am sure he would be more popular if he was funny or talk trashed a bit like his bro khabib.

    I'm glad someone is carrying the kind of intensity in grappling that Khabib brought to this sport. I honestly didnt think UFC was entertaining until I saw the Khabib vs. Connor fight. I knew Connor was a big name in UFC before this fight but I hadn't watched any of his previous fights bc his highlights were just mediocre level of entertaining at best. Before the fight he can sell, but during, mediocre. But when I saw Khabib completely OBLITERATE this man, in the way that he did, i got hooked. The way that he can latch onto you, almost like a parasite and suck the living life out of his opponent, whether it be his ground and pounds, or just making his opponent feel his weight, either by pushing or just being on top, is a form of art. And I see Islam also carries this so I am very excited for UFC. Khabibs cousin Umar is a beast too.

      I agree, but he's not there yet. I think as soon as he get's the belt, he's gonna be a more dominant champ than Khabib. He would need 36 wins undefeated to become better than Khabib. Khabib NEVER lost, so this is why he needs those extra fights to solidify his position.
